The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.

Manufacturers Description

Designed by top international yacht designer Rob Humphreys, the Elan 45 succeeds in combining modern technology and expertise with a respect for tradition, elegance, and stylish good looks. The deck layout of the Elan 45 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 twin wheel steering system offers both a perfect position for the helmsman and excellent access to the bathing platform. The Elan 45 has a large cockpit with wide, comfortable, almost flat coamings, wide side decks, and a generous foredeck. The crew can sit out on the wide coamings, or stay comfortable and dry on the cockpit seats. The Elan 45 offers five different layouts to choose from on the same hull, plus two different choices for the bow section, stern section and deck. All this, together with the availability of custom-built solutions, enables the Elan 45 to become a truly outstanding yacht with the individual character of an owner's choice. The subtle wood-finish interior is stylish and well-proportioned. The saloon, as well as the aft and forward cabins are big and comfortable. There is plenty of natural light and a good selection of stowage options. The Elan 45 is a spacious, big boat which manages to combine a great level of comfortable accommodation with an efficient sailing performance on all points of sail.
