Manufacturer Provided Description

Designed by top international yacht designer Rob Humphreys, the Elan 36 succeeds in combining modern technology and expertise with a respect for tradition, elegance, and stylish good looks.

When a designer of this calibre joins forces with a shipyard with more than 30 years of boat building experience, the results are bound to be impressive. Elan and Humphreys Design have created an elegant and spacious 36-foot cruiser with attractive performance qualities. Stylish lines conceal a technical structure more than capable of dealing with the forces that will come her way, so that owners can feel safe, and sail fast and comfortably in any kind of weather.

The deck layout 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.

Overall, the 36 is a well-proportioned boat with a good-sized, comfortable cockpit and plenty of easily worked deck space. The 36 has a large, deep cockpit locker to starboard which will easily take the staysail, fenders, dinghy, outboard and have room for more. Down below, the 36 is just as thoughtfully designed and well-laid out. It is considered to be a good size to sail shorthanded - such as the regular husband and wife crew - and yet is big enough to swallow a family or another two couples with ease.

The Elan 36 comes originally as a three-cabin solution with a modern longitudinal galley to port. High-quality joinery, flowing lines, and beautiful finish shine through in every detail.
