We’d heard that Elan's new entry-level yacht was a bit special. She looks it but does she live up to the hype?

Elan 310


Price as reviewed:


What a performance! Humphreys has excelled himself. The ease with which high speeds were achieved is amazing on a 31-footer, loads were light and she was fabulous to helm. Graham joined us, took the tiller and we couldn’t prise it out of his hands, so we sailed upriver back to Swanwick. Down below, stowage is too minimalist to cruise in comfort for more than a long weekend but, for a spritely couple who like sailing quick, grinning madly and don’t mind skipping a few creature comforts, she’s made to measure.
