The hull structural strength is a key factor in overall boat safety, and in its resistance to ever-demanding ocean conditions. Maintaining the highest profile of structural frames among boat builders, and the highest number of longitudinal and transversal stringers, the Elan inner structure is one of the most comprehensive reinforced structures on the market today. Adding a unique combination of glueing and laminating techniques to the inner mould to the hull joint is the final proof Elan yachts are build to last. The lead keel is attached to the hull by premium grade stainless steel bolts. The internal grid ensures the best possible strength and flexibility in beating to windward or severe groundings.
This yacht carries the "Germanischer Lloyd" certification of approval, and furthermore, fulfils all safety requirements of RCD 94/25EC and its amendments 2003/44EC. Attaining "Germanischer Lloyd" guarantee of quality and safety. "GL Yacht Plus".
The hull was stripped, prepared and epoxy coated in 2015.
