Sailboat builder Elan Marine is launching the new Elan GT5 this fall.

The launch of the new Gran Turismo series begins with the 40-foot GT5, which is based on Elan’s latest model in its performance range, S5. The first yacht of this new generation will set sail in the fall.

“After many years of study and design, we are proud to announce the beginning of a new concept in yacht design,” Elan Marine chief designer Igor Zupan said in a statement.

“The GT series combines the best design and construction techniques from Elan’s award-winning performance yachts while adopting the advantages of larger yachts. The GT range is truly unique in the market in terms of design, performance, safety and comfort.”

The GT5 is designed with a short-handed crew in mind, which makes it possible for a crew of two to handle the yacht.

The yacht is available with a two- or three-cabin interior layout and a single head featuring a separate shower compartment, and the option of a second head forward, making the owner’s cabin en-suite.
