Technical features on the Elling E6
To start with: the indicrectly illuminated E-6 sign on port and starboard side of Your Elling E-6 Wheelhouse..
Our dedication to perfection. When you are in a marina the Sign will be Your Home Sign!
Beautiful, to enjoy from any angle!
Pcture made with You in mind!
Finished ELLING E-6 Moored but we go back in time:
During the build we cover the hull and will give you some information about the technical
features of the E-6 Yacht
The cover is useful because the hull is very carefully finished and sprayed by our professionals:

the massive stainless steel mounting bracket. We go for Ocean & High Seas Quality!

The Elling Concept is always based on a single engine power train with a complete separate back up engine with a separate fuel tank. A single prop drive system has a far better efficiency than a twin prop. Therefore, the fuel efficiency of the Elling E6 is fantastic. At 8 knots The Elling E6 has a range of more than 2,500 Nautical miles.
VOLVO Crates arrive very regularly at the Elling Shipyard. Carefully packed and protected

As the main engine, we have chosen for the Volvo Penta D13 900 hp engine, as this is the largest available marine engine with 6 cylinders in line. As in the Elling, the main engine is mounted mid-ships, an engine with the cylinders in a “V” shape would limit the accessibility for maintenance or it would limit the space in the galley and guest cabin. Ease of maintenance and accessibility of all mechanical equipment has always been one of our main objectives. Also the possibility to replace the engine, without any damage to the boat or the furniture, was also achieved in the design of the Elling E6. This 900 hp engine will bring the Elling E6 to a maximum speed of 22 Knots
VOLVO and BORG WARNER Transmission: worldwide well known
As in the Elling E3 and E4, we have chosen for a water filled central heating system with radiators in all separate cabins and areas. This gives always a convenient climate in the boat, even in extreme winter conditions. If the boat stays in the water over the winter period, it is not necessary to winterize the boat, if the central heating system is stand by.
The Elling E6 is capable for travelling all over the world. This means that the boat must be equipped with air-conditioning system that ensures a comfortable living environment.
The BlueCool V50 M, part of the all-new V-Series Chiller Systems, brings innovation to the industry with the latest technology for maximum performance in varying weather conditions. The BlueCool V50M, with a cooling capacity up to 50,000 BTU is suitable for boats with three or more independent cabins.

Many advantages and Top of the Bill Technique! Green Marine Climate Control!
The main control unit
The Elling E6 will standardly be equipped with a 75 hp spare engine. This will always ensures a safe journey to the port. Even in case of fuel pollution in the main fuel tanks, you can rely on this spare engine, as she is equipped with her own fuel tank. This combines a higher reliability than a twin engine boat, with all advantages of a single engine boat, such as: good fuel economy, low centre of gravity, more interior space, better accessibility of the engine, lower maintenance costs and an enormous cost saving.

Before mounting, note here also the flexible engine mounts
The auxiliary Engine has a totally separate control unit
Just like in airplanes: a redundant system. Best of the best.
One of the few options on the Elling (most equipment is standard) is the Seakeeper Gyro stabilizing system. As the Elling E6 has a very high stability from the design, thanks to a low centre of gravity and a wide beamed underwater body, a stabilizer is not strictly necessary. Especially due to the fact the semi displacement Hull can be stabilized with the excess power of the main engine: If the E6 reaches a speed, well above the displacement speed of 9 knots, the boat will stabilize itself. But at low speed or even on anchor, the Seakeeper 9 Gyro stabilizing system will ensure a very smooth and quite behaviour in choppy seas.
