I have just returned form IJmuiden in Holland on a job photographing the latest E6 model from Elling for Motor Boat & Yachting magazine. It is a beautiful looking boat quite individual in appearance. Owners have various options: to cruise at the displacement speed of 8.5 knots, increase speed moderately to 12 to 15 knots, or to motor flat out at around twenty knots. At 8.5 knots a full tank of fuel of 5500 litres gives a range of 3500nm, and it was so quiet both inside and out on the aft deck that you could hear the Seakeeper gyro humming, pretty impressive. This is a big step up from the boatyard's previous model the E4. We have waited along time (the previous model was in 2004) to see a new boat from this yard.
