    GT6 X Explore the world in style

3D Vail

In essence, 3D VAIL technology integrates the inner yacht structure, stringers and stringer supports into the hull itself using vacuum-assisted infusion. When fully applied, this complicated and expensive process creates a one-piece laminated structure out of all the load-bearing elements of the yacht, increasing the stiffness and lightness and ensuring the best mechanical properties.


For those with an untamed heart and a soul that yearns for the vast, endless expanse of the open sea, the Elan GT6 X, aptly named the Explorer, isn’t just another yacht. It’s the embodiment of two worlds: the wild beauty of nature and the opulent luxury of man’s finest creation. The Explorer offers long journeys across waters, along with a voyage through life's myriad of emotions and experiences. It represents a journey where every sunrise is a promise and every sunset, a collection of unforgettable memories.

Embarking on adventures with the Explorer bestows a sense of achievement that few other experiences can match, offering a purpose and infusing every moment with profound meaning.


Mediterranean Approach to Blue-Water Cruising

Further enriching its legacy, the Elan GT6’s Mediterranean roots shine through in the Explorer's cockpit layout. This design places sailors closer to the water and when the weather permits, strenghtens their connection with the environment. This offers a more involved experience in contrast to the elevated vantage of centre cockpit yachts of traditional bluewater cruisers, while still offering safe and covered areas with high coamings, integrated sprayhood arch and bimini. By incorporating this Mediterranean-inspired style, the Explorer brings a touch of “joie de vivre” philosophy to waters across the globe, uniting the charm of al-fresco lifestyle with modern-day cruising luxuries. 


State-of-the-Art Technology and Equipment

At the heart of the GT6 X lies its design foundation: the 3D VAIL (3D Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination) hull technology. This amalgamation not only strengthens the entire structure but bestows upon it unparalleled rigidity. Read more about 3D VAIL

The equipment and features aboard the GT6 X are meticulously selected to ensure reliability, functionality, and ease of use. The additional forestay, coupled with reinforcements and a pad eye, empowers sailors to deploy a staysail, enhancing sailing versatility. An integrated self-tacking track provides smooth short-handed manouvers, thereby simplifying the sailing process. The laminated bulkheads, both in the bow and aft, have been fortified to be watertight, ensuring the utmost protection against water ingress.

Range and Autonomy

Range and autonomy are paramount for a bluewater cruising yacht of this type. As sailors venture into the vast, open expanses of the oceans, they seek the assurance of a vessel that can sustain extended journeys.

  • 500 L fuel tank capacity
  • 6x 140 Ah service batteries, extendable to LiPo4 option
  • Solar panel array up to 1187 Wp
  • 100 L/h water maker
  • Generator up to 6400 W

Interior Elegance: Comfort Meets Adventurous Spirit

Upon stepping into the Elan GT6 X, one is immediately struck by the harmonious blend of luxury and functionality that defines the interior. Crafted through the expert touch of Studio F. A. Porsche, the space marries aesthetic finesse with practical features. Each facet of the design aims to serve dual purposes: offering comfort to the adventurous sailor and providing a serene sanctuary for those in search of respite.

In crafting the Explorer, flexibility is key. Owners can choose between a two-cabin or a three-cabin layout to suit their specific needs and preferences. Opting for the two-cabin configuration repurposes the third cabin into a versatile utility hold. This thoughtful design decision creates dedicated spaces for wet and dry storage, accessible from the cockpit and the interior, or even the inclusion of a washing machine, adding another layer of practicality to this luxurious vessel.
