|AUTRES MODELES DU CONSTRUCTEUR ELAN MARINE|
As an owner you will experience a boat which is fast in light winds, but still capable of sailing at close to full speed even in conditions where the sail power is beyond the optimum. This capability of being able to handle very different wind conditions, without an immediate adjustment of the sail area keep the boat on its feet, is equally important to the cruising family as it is to the race crew. The cruising family will feel much more in control, and thus quickly gain confidence in themselves and the boat.
The more experienced owner will find that despite being a comfortable cruiser with a rich interior, the boat can still win races.
Elan 31 is a sailing yacht with capital "S". An optimized keel, tall rig and high quality deck gear all combine to a total package which gives the owner and crew a rewarding sail. Powerful winches and extensive use of ballbearing blocks makes easy handling. The ergonomically shaped cockpit is comfortable for cruising as well as racing.
Deep heavy keels combined with well balanced hulls produce boats with high stability and good ontrol. This gives the helmsman and crew a feeling of sagety and being in control even in adverse conditions.
Excellency in construction
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 og longitudinal and transversal stringers, the Elan inner structure is one of the most comprehensive reinforced structure on the market today. Adding a unique combination or gluing and laminationg techniques to the inner mould to the hull joint is the final proof Elan yachts are build to last.
The cast iron ore lead keel is attached to the hull by premium grade stainless bolts that are highly resistant to corrosion. The internal structure grid ensures the best possible strength and flexibility in beauting to windward, or in severe groundings. Before fifting each Elan keel is sealed for protection and smooth finish.
Chainplate loads are spred via High Quality marine stainless steel rods to metal plates incorporated into the inner structure.
Hull - deck joint
To preserve the design shape of the hull prior to the joint, specially designed metal jigs are used. Use of an in-turning wide flange offers a strong support for the deck an a large surface for bonding material. Hull and deck are joined together by a 3-way technique : Gluing of the hull an deck parts together, use of stainless steel bolts for mechanical shear, fastening and laminating of the joint at the bow and transom area to allow for even greater stiffness and sturdiness. 100% reliability with no recorded failure in thousands of miles of tough ocean conditions.
High Quality materials
Carefully selected materials are subject to our strict quality control. Use of high technology materials, from the latest research, enable us to optimise the laminate plan of each yacht. Wuadriasial - and multiaxial - glass fibre, Kevlar reinforcements at the mast support and bow area, Aramat and Dyvinacell all contribute to the well known strength of an Elan yacht. Use of Vinyl ester pre-laminate and Isophtalic polyester laminate which insures perfect antiosmosis protection and superb mechanical properties to weight ration.
Apart form the aesthetic function, a layer of gel coat is used to prevent water penetration into the laminate and preserve its stiffness over long periods of time. in order to achieve the highest level of consistency in quality and thickness, the HQ gel coat is being sprayed by computer-operated nozzle in a carefully monitored production process.
The proper goal in hull construction is to produce the required strength and stiffness with the least weight of material. Unnecessary weight makes a yacht more difficult to manage, and less enjoyable to sail with our own system of Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination - VAIL the results were more than promising.
All our yacht are under consant supervision of Germanischer Lloyd. With its long history of more than 150 years germanischer Lloyd is setting the highest demands in boat building industry today. Each ELAN yacht is carrying a GL certificate as ultimate proof of her quality, durability and safety. Only in that way do we know we have fulfilled the owner's expectations. The Elan range of performance cruising yachts and Impression cruisers are all built under permanent technical supervision of Germanischer Lloyd for Sailing Yacht specification on a hull structure designed to give any sailor confidence.
