I have a 434 Elan Impression and the build quality is very good. She is stiff sails
with ease and tracks well. My wife and I sail regularly out of Malta
and the two of us handle it with ease. We are going to the factory in Slovenia
in two weeks to see the build quality in person. I also have had very little response from the cruisers forum on others who own Elans. They seem to be more popular in Australia
. For a Med. boat they are far superior to the Bavaria's and others.
I would still like to hear some stories from those who own the line of Elan's for cruising. They have a fine line of racing
hulls but I would also like some responses from those who own the cruising line of the Impression.
