New Model: Elan 30 Power

Following the style of its predecessors 35, 42 and 48, once again Tony Castro manage to design a hard top family sports cruiser of recognizable sports lines, the Elan 30 Power. With just under ten meters in length and a generous beam, Elan Power 30 offers a large cockpit with galley, equipped with a variety of options: gas or electric cooker, and or grill plus an eighty liters fridge. A comfortable settee of a modern design accommodates up to six adults. With a fold-able table and an extra cushion the settee is convertible into a huge sunbed. One of the most prominent features of the deck design is a navigatorium, positioned on the starboard side of the helmsman, offering abundant space for charts. The hull of the Elan Power 30 is balanced to provide both excellent seaworthiness and enough volume to host interior spaces. Among a variety of engine options, Volvo twin 220hp configuration tested on the prototype gave the max speed of 37 knots. Thanks to the technology of laminating joints, predominantly between elements positioned within the hull, as well as the joint of hull and deck, this boat is compact enough to endure extreme weather conditions. Below deck, Elan Power 30 features standing headroom throughout. Interior of Elan Power 30 is not only equipped with modern furniture finished in oak wood, but is also very practical. The galley is divided into two working surfaces. The effect of comfort and spaciousness is intensified by two saloon ceiling openings, allowing a lot of natural daylight to enter the saloon. Two very spacious cabins, both with double berths, can accommodate four persons. Wardrobes and hanging cabinets of the front cabin are suitable for storage of personal belongings. Another luxury feature is certainly the head approachable from both master cabin and the saloon.
