Boat Details

A great opportunity to buy an Elan Impression 45 only two seasons light use. One season on the South Coast and one season in fresh water at Windermere. This boat is privately owned and has not been chartered at all. She is VAT paid and has a terrific inventory.

Viewing by appointment only.


The Impression 40, like all Elans, is designed by Rob Humphreys with an emphasis on better performance but with a focus on safe and comfortable cruising.

The hull is laminated using Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination technology which considerably improves strength, without adding weight, to the mechanical and chemical properties of the hull.  High quality materials, SVG gelcoat for optimal chemical resistance against osmosis and mirror finish, sandwich construction using multi-directional fibreglass, structural closed cells foam core on hull sides and single skin on hull bottom and loaded areas, vinylester skin coat and Isophtalic polyester resin are used for high quality product. 

Powerful inner structure distributes all loads from the keel and rig effectively with a minimum flexing of the hull.  

Deck is build in sandwich by hand lamination technology with using Balsa core to assure thermal and sound isolation, moulded anti slip surface on deck and coach roof.
