Elan released the stability curve and polar of the Elan 400 and I like that boat more and more.
It is the kind of boat that can mix a very good upwind performance with a very goo downwind one, a very balanced boat and a very stiff one. With 36% of B/D with all the ballast in a bulb at 2.40m and a moderate beam 83,87m) it has to be.
I like specially the hull, not very beamy and with more rocker than many boats in its class mixed with a transom design that will give a good stability on a downwind ride.
The tankage is also good, with 350L of water and 170L of diesel. I only hope that the interior looks better than it looks on the designs. It is a pity that they had not sacrificed one of the rear cabins to move that head further aft providing a bigger and nicer salon and a dedicated smaller storage space.
