Elan E6 Wins Prestigious Design Award

Elans new flagship, the E6 performance cruiser has won the prestigious design
award in the category for Sailing Yachts at the 11th International Yacht & Aviation
Awards 2022. This award ceremony last week was hosted by interior and aviation
design magazines Design et al and Luxe et al, which focus on innovative and
inspirational side of designed products and accolade the most outstanding designs
worldwide.
Awards themselves are sorted among different categories such as motor yachts,
sailing yachts, interior design, master cabin design, private jet interior, etc. The
competition enables broader community of design enthusiasts to view the latest
breath-taking designs, vote for their favourite one, and thus participate in the award
winning process.
Elan E6 charmed the jury in the first round of elections with its muscular sporty looks
enabled with minimalistic soft elegant lines. Merit goes to the successful
collaboration between Elan Yachts and famous Italian design studio Pininfarina,
which reflects in recognisable design, based on primary exterior elements of the Elan
E-line on the one hand, significantly influenced by Pininfarina’s design style on the
other, which gave the E6 a completely unique breathtaking appearance.
Elan E6 is the lightest and fastest yacht in it’s segment, and unifies technological
aspects with aesthetics, which is the main objective of good industrial design. The
yacht’s blend of high-quality materials complements its aggressive and sporty
expression whilst portraying elegance and luxury.

Elan E6


Elan E6 was created for skilled and demanding sailors, that also want a high level of
comfort and cruising advantages. This presents a return to the Elan’s DNA, with a
big boundary push of her performance and aesthetics. The E Line is known for the
active chine design, twin rudders and T-shaped keel, but the team at Elan and
Humphreys Yacht Design also fine-tuned the new hull design to push the
performance in various sailing conditions and all points of sail beyond what would be
typically considered feasible for a yacht of this type.
The E6’s design finds success in all respects, but some elements truly make this
yacht iconic. The coachroof window lines celebrate the heritage of Elan’s E Line,
while the portlight fold gives the E6 a sporty line and an instantly recognisable look.
In the interior, the main stairs in the saloon forecast the hexagonal motif of the
interiors and are a centrepiece connecting it all. Instead of wood, the stairs are made
of GRP, which carries Elan Yachts to completely new dimensions of design,
ergonomics, and durability.
