New Boat Showcase 2018

2017 October 1

Elan GT5

This cruiser is designed by Rob Humphreys, with a beamy stern and attractive proportions. The twin rudder arrangement should provide solid control when heeled, and the twin backstays and wheels provide for a large open cockpit with generous width on the seats and twin dining tables. Belowdecks there are four interior layout options, with a choice of two or three staterooms. The galley, which is forward in the boat and spans the entire beam, provides lots of storage and counter space. This should make for a comfortable home for an extended vacation. 

LOA 43’3”; Beam 12’9”; Draft 8’; Displ. 17,800 lbs.; Ballast 5,900 lbs.; Sail area 847 sq. ft. www.elan-yachts.com. Scheduled shows: Newport International Boat Show, U.S. Sailboat Show.
