Elixir in my opinion is one of the best 40' Racer/Cruisers you could have. She has all the amenities that you would require for cruising but has that edge for speed that would enable you to have fun sailing as opposed to motoring. Elixir has been configured for cruising and has been very well cared for with new Awlgrip on her topsides, she is highly recommended.
CRUISING WORLD BEST PERFORMANCE 40-FOOTER BOAT OF THE YEAR 2004
The interior is gorgeous with abundant cherry wood and fit/ finish is beautifully done, side ports and overhead hatches provide excellent ventilation and light. This Elan 40 is the two stateroom configuration with a large forward comfortable V berth with port and starboard bureaus with abundant storage. The second stateroom is aft, and it too has abundant storage. The large U shaped salon with center table can also be configured as a double and makes a great sea berth if needed on passages. The head/shower just aft of the Nav station is large and has a large hatch to allow access to the large freezer tucked in under the port cockpit locker. The galley has lots of room to prepare and cook meals with Corian countertops twin stainless sinks with high fiddles to keep things as they should in a sea way..
This boat was the show boat for the Newport and Annapolis Boatshows and was purchased new in 2006 by the current owner.

Designed by top international yacht designer Rob Humphreys, the Elan 40 succeeds in combining modern technology and expertise with a respect for tradition, elegance, and stylish good looks. The deck layout of the Elan 40 reflects the many years of designing, building, and sailing experience that were put together to conceive this boat. The clean deck features the very best deck hardware available, while the ergonomically designed cockpit guarantees comfort for both the crew and the skipper. The helmsman's seat cants forward to create easy boarding through an open transom as well as a raised platform for easier visibility. The high-quality joinery, flowing lines, and beautiful craftsmanship shine through in every detail.
