Elan Yachts Appoints US Yachts

Sydney-based company US Yachts has been appointed as the new Australian dealer for Slovenian cruising yachts manufacturer Elan

. The Elan Performance range has yachts from a 210 up to a 450, and the Elan Impressions range has a 394, 444 and 494.

The Elan 400 is the newest yacht in the range, launched in January 2013. The new Elan 400 features what the company describes as “elegant yet dynamic lines, and caters for owners seeking that perfect balance between comfort and performance, competitors seeking speed and safety and purists valuing attention to detail and clever features.”

CEO of US Yachts, Matt Hayes, sailed the Elan 210, the 350, 400 and 495 in Slovenia in May, and said he was very impressed with their sailability and comfort. “The quality of the workmanship was exceptional. The great features of the Elan range include chimed hulls, twin rudders, vacuum infused hull and decks – ensuring that the yachts are very strong, light and exude powerful performance,” he said.

Luka Modrijan, director nautical division Elan said: “We are delighted with our appointment of US Yachts as the sole distributor for Elan in Australia and believe with the commitment and professionalism of Matt Hayes and his team, Elan will have a great future in Australia.”
