Mr W is on a distinguished road
Elan 400

Here´s the latest addition from Elan, the 400!









And specs:

Overall Length 11.95
Length WL 11.26
Beam 3.87
Draft 2.40
Engine 40 hp
Water Capacity 310 liters
Fuel Capacity 170 liters

Mainsail 54.56
Genoa 37.6
Gennaker 135

Weight???

"Expected to be seriously fast and responsive, the Elan 400 will feature a completely rethinked and restyled interior, among the tried and tested VOR inspired wide transom, chined hull and twin rudders."

"In principle, it is an overgrown 350, but geared a little more towards IRC so that it does not fall outside of the measurement systems"

"It has been taken quite a lot more stability into the design with more weight in the keel and a narrower boat, proportionately, than the Elan 350"

What´s your opinion?
