Elan GT6 - Exterior

The fundamental idea behind the design of Elan’s new GT6 yacht designed by Studio F. A. Porsche is to create a modern and unique sailing experience that unifies nature and technology while traveling the high seas. The yacht’s exterior focus’ on combining minimalism with dynamics, while bringing watersports closer to nature. The result is a stunning aft deck composed of sculptured volumes inspired by aerodynamic elements used in sports cars. The elaborately curved surfaces allow for beautiful flares of light as well as the reflections of sky and sea.

Elan's flagship GT6 is a next-generation Grand Tourer that delivers the perfect balance of speed and power, comfort and luxury, good handling and precise control.

Stiff, stable and weatherly, the high-performance hull and sailplan by Humphreys Yacht Design are optimised for short-handed, medium-range cruising. Three generations of Humphreys/Elan design evolution and extensive CFD modelling produce a refined yacht that handles like a thoroughbred and delivers exhilarating performance on all points of sail, across the full range of wind and sea conditions.

Unique styling by Studio F. A. Porsche gives the GT6 a strikingly elegant silhouette with sharp, distinctive lines and elaborately curved surfaces that create beautiful flares of light as the yacht moves through the water. In the cockpit, excellent ergonomics and a host of innovative design features bring a new level of luxury to life on board.

Elan GT6, Porsche design

Studio F. A. Porsche’s iconic design values and world-class ergonomics create a uniquely stylish, luxurious and practical living space inside the GT6. The sleek panoramic deck saloon gives a wonderful 180° view and a cleverly inverted layout makes the best possible use of the spacious, broad-beamed hull.

The galley is forward, right on top of the keel where the yacht’s motion at sea is most comfortable with minimal heeling, pitching and rolling. This frees up space further aft for a huge full-beam saloon. A lavish owner’s suite with a king-size island double bed makes best use of the forepeak and big through-hull windows in every cabin give a great view out.

Available layouts

A wide range of layout options and configurations are available to tailor the rest of the accommodation, systems and stowage on board to best suit you, your crew and your style of sailing. And throughout the boat, exquisite details, premium materials and a beautifully handcrafted finish enhance the joy of being on board.

Solaris Power is constantly redefining the concept of traditional American lobster boats and is now introducing the 48 Open. The new Solaris Power 48 Open offers a number of features that are unique in the category.

Sophisticated

The new 48 Open is a very sophisticated boat that focuses on seaworthiness, practicality and safety. The latest generation propulsion system is perfectly integrated into the shape of the hull, something that has never happened before in this segment. These features allow long cruises in adverse weather conditions with absolute safety and long range.

Designed by Norberto Ferretti

The 48 Open is capable of efficiently sailing at low speed in displacement mode and also well over 35 knots, unlike normal boats with gliding hulls. Norberto Ferretti also attached great importance to comfort and reliability on this model and designed an open walkaround concept that offers the same cabin space as an ordinary cabin cruiser. This boat is the first of a new generation of open boats and represents a big step forward compared to the current offer on the market.

Individually configurable

On the main deck, starting from the bow, there is a sunbathing area with a protected headrest. The steering position is well equipped with instruments, joystick and a complete dashboard as well as two touchscreens, which can be configured according to the needs of the owners. Two different interior options are available: Both have a full owner's cabin.

THE GREAT SEAGOING ATTITUDE OF SOLARIS POWER

  • capable to cruise efficiently at low speed in displacement mode and as well over 30kts, unlike ordinary boats with planing hulls
  • voyages very safely in unfavourable weather
  • low fuel consumption, therefore greater range
  • reduced CO2 emissions
  • enhanced manoeuvrability thanks to its joysticks
  • low noise level and zero vibrations
  • great stability also when at anchor

COMFORT IS ONE OF THE MAIN PRIORITIES

  • fold-out bulwarks that can be opened for enhanced enjoyment of the cockpit

The two architects behind this free-flowing, wonderfully nimble 54-footer are Roberto Biscontini and Lorzenzo Argento, whose creation paves the way for a new generation of high-end cruisers that optimize cockpit and interior layouts without any sacrifices to performance, practicality, or comfort. The yacht carries the unmistakable DNA of the Oceanis range, a delicate balance of form and function that make her as pretty as she is capable, and as focussed as she is versatile, equally ready for a fast ocean passage or a leisurely double-handed sunset cruise. With an emphasis on build quality, high-end materials, and the innovative vision that has always been a staple of the BENETEAU brand, the Oceanis Yacht 54 truly represents the pinnacle of the modern monohull cruising design.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

With a straight stem allowing for new interior volumes in the bow area, and a maximum beam (5 m) carried further aft, the Oceanis Yacht 54 offers a state-of-the-art, perfectly balanced hull that maximizes thrills in all conditions. Movement on deck was given special attention, particularly around the cockpit, which modernizes the traditional center cockpit design into a flush layout with distinct areas dedicated to lounging and sailing. Aptly drawn coamings and high bulwarks provide increased safety while transiting to the foredeck, and access to the sea is provided by the spacious swim platform, which, when deployed, reveals the space below the cockpit to store an eight-foot inflatable tender. The Oceanis Yacht 54 is available with two different drafts: 2,50 m (standard), 1,95 m (option). 

INTERIOR DESIGN

Lorenzo Argento’s objective in designing the interior was to create a warm, modern atmosphere with as much natural light and ventilation as possible. The Oceanis Yacht 54’s layouts reflect a desire to meet the needs of modern-day owners, through well-engineered, versatile cabin arrangements that provide unrivaled levels of comfort and capacious storage space. Tables and seating areas have been reimagined to offer both conviviality and practicality, and access to all major systems and components hides in plain sight. There are two versions available, a 3-cabin 2-head or a 3-cabin 3-head, and both can be built using light oak or walnut. 

EVERY DETAIL OF THE OCEANIS YACHT 54 HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY EXAMINED TO BECOME ONE WITH THE CREW AND THE SEA.

She is, at a glance, unmistakably Oceanis – the mainsail arch, the modern sheerline, the elegant proportions, those distinctive coamings and portholes – and honors her pedigree by continuing to offer the features that have made the range a standard-bearer in the industry. A vast array of options, trim levels, rigging and keel setups, and mechanical components ensure there will be a tailored yacht to fit the needs of every sailor, and her stylish looks will turn heads in every harbor on every ocean. 

SAFE AND EASY SAILING

The Oceanis Yacht 54 isn’t just modern on the outside; it is a yacht that is crammed with the latest and greatest sailing technologies, intuitively built into her systems, that are designed to make the cruising experience as easy and as enjoyable as possible. Ship Control, an interface that allows access to boat data and components, is installed as standard. Dock&Go, which greatly facilitates engine-powered manoeuvering in tight spaces by combining a 360 degree rotating pod with a retractable bowthruster, is available as an option. Under sail, the optional Harken AST (assisted sail trim) automatically trims the sails based on apparent wind, all controlled by a simple display in the cockpit. Shorthanding a 54-footer has never been easier.

GREAT EASE OF MOVEMENT

The flush cockpit allows for seamless movement between the companionway and the helm stations, creating an invisible partition between active and passive areas on deck. The flow to the aft swim platform and down the gangways to the foredeck is remarkably natural, and the positioning of lines, winches and controls allows for near-effortless sailing. Sightlines from the helm forward are excellent. The cockpit seats feel comfortable yet snug, though it is the foredeck sunpad that is likely to be the most popular spot on the boat.

EXCLUSIVE TRIM AND MATERIALS

A close inspection of the Oceanis Yacht 54’s engineering and build quality reveals a craft that is decidedly a cut above the rest. Every single aspect of the boat has been carefully reexamined and nothing has been taken for granted - from the high-quality door fixtures and upholstery, to the exquisite molded woods of the interior, to the aluminum sub-floor that increases rigidity yet saves weight. The owner will be able to choose between two cabin layouts (both with two wood options available) and a palette of upholstery and paneling choices, to say nothing of electronic, mechanical, and rigging selections. Whatever the choice, on such a beautifully executed boat, the owner is bound to be one with the boat, and one with the sea.

Elan GT6, Porsche design

Full details of Elan Yachts’ next-generation flagship model, the Elan GT6, have been revealed at the world’s biggest boat show, Boot Düsseldorf. The prototype GT6 is still in build at Elan’s shipyard in Slovenia, but high-resolution renders show the elegant new design – the first ever yacht designed by Studio F. A. Porsche – from every angle and reveal full details of the yacht’s interior. 

Marko Škrbin, head of the Elan Yachts shipyard, hosted a launch party at the show and unveiled one of the key sources of inspiration for the Elan GT6 – an ultra-rare 1973 Porsche 911 RS from the Porsche Museum. Like the interior and exterior of the Elan GT6, this iconic classic sports car was designed and styled by Studio F. A. Porsche.

Also at the launch party, the renowned naval architect Rob Humphreys spoke about his 26-year design partnership with Elan, which spans three generations of yachts leading up to the new GT6. Working closely with Studio F. A. Porsche and Elan’s in-house team, Humphreys Yacht Design has drawn a high-performance hull and sailplan to give the GT6 a unique combination of performance, comfort and style.

On deck

Elan GT6, Porsche design

Studio F. A. Porsche has produced a strikingly modern yet also classic design for the deck, cockpit and interior of the Elan GT6. A true grand tourer in all respects, this 49ft (15m) luxury cruiser is optimised for easy handling and fast, medium-range short-handed voyaging. A natural evolution from Elan’s widely acclaimed GT5, the new GT6 represents a big step up in onboard luxury while preserving the brand’s sporty DNA.

‘The fundamental idea is to create a modern and unique sailing experience that unifies nature and technology while traveling the high seas,’ says Christian Schwamkrug,

design director at Studio F. A. Porsche. ‘The yacht’s exterior focus is on combining minimalism with dynamics, while bringing water sports closer to nature. The result is a stunning cockpit composed of sculptured volumes inspired by aerodynamic elements used in sports cars. The elaborately curved surfaces allow for beautiful flares of light as well as the reflections of sky and sea.’

One notable feature, rarely seen on a yacht of this size is the deck profile: completely flush forward of the mast with a subtle, elegantly streamlined deck saloon further aft. The cockpit layout is a blend of Studio F. A. Porsche’s minimalist style and renowned ergonomics with Elan’s 70 years of craftsmanship and boatbuilding know-how.

‘The twin wheels are inspired by the shape and lightness of a Formula 1 car’s suspension,’ Schwamkrug explains. ‘The steering pillars and the floating stern of the yacht take their design approach from nature itself – resembling spread seagull wings and stingray fins. The design of the hull represents a well balanced combination of sharp and distinctive lines and soft, almost sculptured surfaces.’

Design evolution

The partnership with Porsche is an exciting new direction for Elan Yachts but the hull form of the GT6 is the latest chapter in a design evolution that spans three decades and includes game-changing boats such as the quick, stiff and seaworthy 333, now considered a modern classic and the seminal 350, one of the first production cruiser-racers with genuine planing performance, which has evolved into the current Elan E4. The GT line of crossover yachts – a concept that aims to deliver the full power of a racing yacht with all the comforts and easy handling of a cruiser, rather than the compromise of a cruiser-racer – is the fourth generation of Humphreys Elan designs.

‘Performance is about more than just speed,’ says Tom Humphreys, a highly esteemed yacht designer who worked on the GT6 with his father Rob. ’It’s also about good manners: being easy to operate for a shorthanded crew, family or couple. Our work on the GT6 has been inspired by our work on short-handed ocean racing boats and we’ve always felt that there’s a lot of synergy between the two.’

A key aspect of the Humphreys design philosophy is balancing raw power and outright speed with control, good handling characteristics and the ability to easily sustain maximum performance for the duration of a long passage in a wide range of wind and sea conditions while minimising the effort required by the yacht’s autopilot and crew.

‘Cruising efficiency is also about performance,’ Rob Humphreys says. ‘Getting from A to B, avoiding bad weather… there are lots of benefits of having a fast yacht and I can’t think of any benefits of having a slow boat. People think performance is scary but that’s not the case. We look at the aspects of performance that make life easier and better.’

Race-derived features

Elan was among the first production boatbuilders to fit twin rudders to its cruising yachts, which enabled other race-derived features to work effectively. ‘One of the key aspects is the control you get when the boat is pressed so reefing is not super critical,’ Rob Humphreys says. ‘And the twin rudders allowed other things to happen – it’s an integrated package that is optimised together. The hull form can become more powerful, creating a bigger righting lever to supplement the stability you get from the keel.’ Full, powerful aft sections give a lot more interior volume for cruising accommodation and stowage but twin rudders are essential to avoid the problem of a single rudder ventilating as the yacht heels, causing it to round up into the wind with a complete loss of control.

The next step in Elan’s hull form evolution was the use of hard-chined aft quarters. ‘It’s a function of the form stability and the section shapes that we put into the hull. ’That’s how we’ve been able to move the performance on from earlier generations of Elan yachts,’ Tom Humphreys says. 

Below decks

Elan GT6, Porsche design

Inside the GT6 is an unusual but practical layout with the galley at the forward end of the saloon, right on top of the keel where the yacht’s motion is most stable and U-shaped for safe use at sea. Bringing the saloon further aft maximises the useful space on board.

The owner’s suite is the forecabin with a king-size island double bed facing aft and a good view out through the large through-hull windows on both sides. There’s ample stowage in smart, unobtrusive eye-level lockers throughout the saloon, galley and forecabin. Raised hardwood fiddles that flow around the edges of the furniture tops serve as useful handholds as well as stopping loose items from sliding onto the cabin sole.

‘The whole interior bears Studio F. A. Porsche’s unique and recognisable design DNA, combining a minimalistic design approach with the idea of enhanced functionality,’ Schwamkrug explains. ‘The main features of the interior design are the flowing lines and the architectural element of a “belt”, which connects the entire interior. This forms a connection between the living area and galley as well as the balance between functionality and cosiness achieved by carefully developed colour and trim details.

‘Additionally the use of transformable furniture, such as the saloon table turning into a coffee table, allows for a perfect use of space. The colour and trim concept represents the sophisticated approach of the Studio F. A. Porsche design philosophy by using high-quality materials and subtle colours blending perfectly into the overall concept.’

Build quality

Beneath the beautiful skin of the GT6 is a strong, stiff and lightweight composite structure. Elan was an early adopter of vacuum infusion technology and continues to refine its own patented process to stay ahead of the curve. ‘Elan’s 3D VAIL system gives better quality lamination control and more reliable weights,’ Rob Humphreys says, ‘and we can design for that.’

But there’s more to Elan’s build quality than modern composite technology. Equally important is the fine craftsmanship of the interior. To maximise the impact of Studio F. A. Porsche’s design, the interior fit-out of the GT6 includes solid hardwood and thick veneers, exclusive fabrics and sophisticated systems to make life on board more luxurious.

‘Our powerful new flagship model is a game-changing gran turismo yacht that offers all the benefits of Elan build quality, technology and craftsmanship with the design flair of Studio F. A. Porsche and the performance and handling of a Humphreys hull that’s optimised for fast short-handed cruising,’ says Elan Yachts’ Marko Škrbin. ‘The GT6 is the perfect package to start your grand tour.’
