Elan 400

The Humphreys-designed Elan 400 is the result of research on how sailors sail boats in different weather conditions, while racing or cruising. The result is a cockpit optimized for shorthanded sailing, a retractable sprit and an aft-mounted traveler, along with other handy features. There are three interior plans to choose from, including one with a spacious galley, and two plans having three cabins.
