Designed by top international yacht designer Rob Humphreys, the Elan 333 succeeds in combining modern technology and expertise with a respect for tradition, elegance, and stylish good looks. The deck layout reflects the many years of designing, building, and sailing experience that were put together to conceive the Elan 333. The clean deck features the very best deck hardware available, while the ergonomically designed cockpit guarantees comfort for both the crew and the skipper. The helmsman's seat cants forward to create easy boarding through an open transom as well as a raised platform for easier visibility. The spatial geometry of the boat creates an efficient interrelationship between an ergonomically refined cockpit configuration and a wonderfully usable interior. The Elan 333 delivers much more than can normally be expected of a sub-10 metre yacht. In some owners eyes, the 333 is the perfect club-racer; in others she is the ideal cruising boat. That both notions can coexist speaks volumes for the overall qualities of this boat.
