Description of IOANNIS's sailboat
Sailboat Elan 514 Impression (Skippered - Crete) 16.15m
SAILBOAT OVERVIEW Elan Impression 514 (named TREATON) is a fast-cruising yacht in a league of her own. Designed by the distinguished Rob Humphreys and provided with the German Lloyd GL Plus Certification, offers a highly compelling formula. The lines of the Elan Impression 514 are streamlined and elegant with luxurious touches throughout. The semi deck saloon opens into a magnificent space with overhead and side panoramic windows welcoming in plenty of natural light and excellent views. TREATON has a keel-stepped mast and a powerful hull infused with the latest 3-D technology, with an isophthalic gelcoat finish. The hull is moulded in a one step process with Elan’s highly advanced technology based on vacuum - assisted lamination, which improves the mechanical properties of the hull up to 50%. The injection - moulded deck is cored with discontinuous balsa panels. The ballast keel is cast iron encapsulated in epoxy. A powerful 115-hp Yanmar engine pushes the sailboat at about nine knots at 2600 rpm with truly little noise or vibration. Under power, she maneuvers like a yacht. The large three - bladed folding prop and powerful bow thruster make backing out of the slip a highly controlled affair. The extensive open cockpit area provides ample space and excellent comfort. The aft door opens easily serving as a large swimming platform and additional entertainment area. The 3 unfolding steps add even more entertainment space to the vast aft area. The retractable hydraulic Besenzoni 500 gangway provides easy access on and off the yacht. The electric mainsail winch, an extra fridge / freezer, a BBQ grill, and a sink on the cockpit offer the ultimate level of functionality and convenience. The forward deck sunbathing area is huge as well and equipped with comfortable mattresses. The interior uses teak wood, stainless handholds, and intimate LED lighting. There are 3 separate A/C (+ heating) units, one for the saloon, one for the forward and one for the aft cabins, supported by a powerful generator. The saloon (which is converted into a double bed if needed) is light and airy. The U-shaped dinette will seat up to 10 guests when using the two additional chairs. The port settee has a small table with a hidden bottle and glass storage. There is also a radio/MP3 and a hidden flat TV that reveals electrically. The L-shaped galley is very well-appointed, fully equipped (side opening fridge with freezer, gas stove with oven, microwave oven, double sink), with plenty of storage space. There are five (4+1) cabins, two sets of ample double cabins at each end (forward and aft) and a crew cabin with two single bunk berths. There are also five (4+1) electric toilets with showers. TREATON is a magnificent, robust large cruiser. She is an ideal sailing yacht for families, friends or couples searching for finesse, luxury, and comfort.
