In 1949, Elan’s boat building tradition started off with kayaks, canoes and small boat productions made up of waterproof wooden slabs. In the 1950’s is when a large number of small crafts started to be exported to the United States. Another ten years after that, in the 1960’s, announced the dawn of reinforced polyester, a revolutionary material that Elan used for racing kayaks and boats. The 1980’s was a significant decade that shifted towards the production of larger cruiser-racer sailing yachts that were design by the now, J & J Design Studio, which included the legendary Elan 31. The year 1995, Elan commenced cooperation with a renowned nautical designer, Rob Humphreys, resulting in many successful, award-winning projects. Shortly after, in 2011, Elan launched the revolutionary Volvo Ocean Race inspired by the Elan 350 with characteristic chines and twin rudders which won another European Yacht of the Year title! Elan Yachts has an eye for building rich tradition, combined with an innovative present, and holding down a strong foundation for the future of Elan Yachts.
