“The Elan 40 is fast, comfortable, and good-looking, and it handles well. Its quality/price ratio is excellent. Whether you hang a ton of rail meat to windward for a race or take a couple of weeks off to explore the coast with the family, it has a certain—élan.”  – Tom Dove, SAIL Magazine

ECLIPSE is only on her second owner, a testament to the enjoyment she has brought to those who have had the pleasure to sail her. A model infrequently found in the United States, the Elan 40 has much to offer both racer and cruiser as mentioned in the above SAIL magazine review. Her spacious cockpit alongside a two-stateroom, dual-head interior provide plentiful space for friends, family, or crew.
