El Paso's air-conditioned wheelhouse gives you comfort during your new ocean adventures, her 25mm bulletproof double glazing withstands the most extreme conditions and a central fresh air dorade box ventilation system provides fresh air in all compartments when all glazing and portholes have to be closed.

The rigging is completely hydraulic with the touch of a button, the mast and her self-folding deck table comes down to decrease height to only 3.20 meters which makes El Paso suitable for the French Canals with more than 30 cm of headroom left. Under sail her normal cruising speed of 9 knots is increased by 1,5 knots or gives the possibility to go down with 200 rpm to save fuel.
