|Ever since 1949 ELAN has been engaged in the production of vessels. The production began with the making of boats, kayaks, canoes, four- and eight-seated sculleries that were made out of waterproof wooden slabs in a special boat workshop, which saw its biggest success in the years of 1950 to 1952. In the following six years the Marine Division temporarily redirected its manufacturing into the production of folding rubberized kayaks, but in 1957 and 1958, having received orders from America, they switched back to the production of wooden vessels. In the next few years they made approximately 700 yachts and other crafts, bearing the name of Olympia, for the American market alone. |
Until the emergence of polyester the production was not really planned, but more coincidental. Planned production began in 1962 with the manufacturing of boats from reinforced polyester; the material that at the time meant a revolutionary world innovation in crafts manufacturing. Nowadays Elan Marine is competing in a very aggressive international market of production boats.
