The enthusiast public and the market have been waiting for a while for a new model from the Slovenian shipyard Elan. After the announcement of a new ownership (read HERE) and the restyling of some successful models (read HERE), a new boat that has been missing for a few years, namely since the launch of the GT5 (read HERE), was expected. But the wait is over and something very important is simmering.

A 14.3-meter boat, as announced by a press note from the shipyard, still shrouded in a veil of secrecy that will soon be lifted, however. The boat will be the result of a unique collaboration between design team Elan, renowned naval architect Humphreys Yacht Design, and-in their first-ever sailing yacht project-Studio F. A. Porsche, the product design team behind the world-renowned luxury automaker.

No full image has been released, only the partial sketch that we show you in the photo. We catch a glimpse of a portion of the stern, a very external rudder that obviously suggests the existence of a double blade and double wheel. An open, almost open-style stern, protected by a deckhouse well up on deck. Apparently they could be the characteristics of a sport cruiser. We will know more in the near future.
