The Elan Impression 434 is a fast, stiff, wonderfully thought out cruising boat from the drawing board of Rob Humphreys and the builder Elan. This yacht has a bright, modern interior which has a great three-cabin layout and innovative cruising design.
Built for performance, safety and enduring value, Elan hulls are constructed using a vacuum infused lamination process which doubles the fiber content, increasing tensile and flexural strength resulting in a significantly stronger, stiffer boat while ensuring the highest anti-osmosis protection.
