Elling Yachts in the Netherlands is introducing its 65-foot Elling E6, a solid, safe, long-range cruiser to North America at the Fort Lauderdale show, and comes with some fairly unique features, including its ability to right itself in a capsize and its second get-home engine in the event of a catastrophic failure to the main. Ellings are built by Neptune Marine, which has 40 years of experience, and are designed and engineered to be the safest cruisers in the world. With a range of 3,500 nm, the new E6 could cross the Atlantic, explore the fjords of Norway, or complete the Great Loop with only one refueling.

The E6 is powered by a single 900-hp Volvo D13 diesel, and tops out at 21 knots. It also has a spare 75-hp Volvo D2 with a shaft drive and folding prop; with this get-home engine, the boat goes 7 knots. The company uses Kevlar in the hull construction, and it conducts capsize tests to show the E6 can right itself in a 360-degree rollover. It is rated CE ocean Category A for offshore safety. Standard bow and stern thrusters make docking easy, even with just the single main engine.

The flagship of the Elling fleet, the new E6 has four cabins. The owner's stateroom is aft for privacy, with a walkaround queen-sized bed, lots of storage space, an en suite head and shower, and a high-gloss cherry finish. A VIP stateroom with a queen bed is in the bow with a head, and a third cabin is opposite the lower galley; it has access to the salon and can be used as a separate stateroom or as an office. A crew cabin with a head and shower is aft, with an entrance from the transom. A garage there is large enough for a 12-foot Williams tender.

The pilothouse has two helm seats plus a double sofa so guests can keep the captain company underway. Visibility from the helm is excellent. A curved settee and a table facing a TV and two easy chairs are in the salon; it has large windows providing more visibility. A skylight opens at the touch of a button.

The E6 has a low profile and a low CG for stability underway. A low air draft makes it attractive for anyone cruising the ICW or the Great Loop, with lots of low bridges along the way.

Specs:

  • LOA: 65'0"
  • Beam: 17'5"
  • Draft: 4'11"
  • Disp.: 52,000 lbs.
  • Fuel: 1,320 gals.
  • Water: 317 gals.
  • Power: 900-hp Volvo D13 diesel and 75-hp Volvo D2 diesel.
