Design 1922 - Elan

One of 18 boats built by Carlini of Italy (you can find other Carlini boats posted on this blog). Elan is a one tonner combining separate rudder and keel plus trim tab. This configuration greatly improved downwind performance and control while not hampering upwind ability. Launched in 1968 she was an early boat using rod rigging.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 36'-11"
LWL 26'-9"
Beam 9'-11"
Draft 6'-3"
Displacement 14,436 lbs
Ballast 7,000 lbs
Sail Area 525 sq ft
