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. Below deck the interior will satisfy even the most demanding owner. Practical solutions with a high degree of comfort are combined with beautiful handcraft. Deep heavy keels combined with well balanced hulls produce boats with high stability and good control. This gives the helmsman and crew a feeling of safety and being in control even in adverse conditions.
