The new Elan E6 is now officially nominated for the European Yacht of the Year (EYOTY) Award in the category of best performance cruiser.

The E6 was designed by a dream team of specialists. Humphreys Yacht Design did the naval architecture, Pininfarina did styling, Gurit refined the composite production and Elan led the project and constructed the yacht.

It’s intended for serious sailors that expect great performance but intend to use it for leisure with family and friends as well.

The EYOTY nomination is an important confirmation of the success of the project, being the most sought-after accolade in the yachting business and confirmation of excellence.

The winner will be announced at Boot Düsseldorf in January 2023.


The Elan E6 had an incredible first few months since its launch in March, winning the prestigious design award in the category for Sailing Yachts at the 11th International Yacht & Aviation Awards in May.

In June, the Elan E6 also won the Red Dot: Product Design 2022 Award. Such accolades speak volumes about the E6’s impact on the market.

“I am very proud of the team that designed and constructed the Elan E6 and thankful to the EYOTY judges for the nomination,” said Director of Elan Yachts, Marko Škrbin.

“The E6 was a challenging project, one that pushed the boundaries of what’s possible for a fully fitted performance cruiser.

“We’re talking about a yacht that weighs 11 tonnes at 14.1 metres of hull length, looks like a piece of art and is both incredibly fast and comfortable. We wanted to create a perfect yacht that provides the excitement of a regatta, but also plenty of comfort on the water.

“Pininfarina added flair and style to the yacht, Gurit pushed our composite capabilities to an even higher level and Humphreys Yacht Design used their experience to create a powerful hull and sail plan. I couldn’t be happier with the result.”

The first Elan E6 arrives in Australia in March 2023 and will be available for delivery soon after.
