History of the Company

The Dutch company Neptune Marine Shipbuilding was founded in 1972. It was one of the first companies in the country to start building boats from fiberglass composite. Semi-displacement Neptunus of 11-24 meters were in demand and in total about 200 such boats were built, many of which are still in operation today.

Elling's first yachts were born in 1997 and were the company's response to the demands of customers who were looking for reliable, seaworthy, comfortable yachts of relatively small sizes, which could be made in a luxury version. Developed in collaboration with renowned designer Ken Freivokh, the Elling concept was the original expression of the idea of an all-weather marine convertible. In 1998, Neptune Marine together with Akzo Nobel developed the technology of fiberglass hull reinforcement with a cloth, which gave the hulls of boats more strength. Since the launch of Elling the company has built over 300 yachts of this brand.

In addition to yachts, Neptune Marine Shipbuilding manufactures many other marine products including technical vessels, pontoons and floating power units among others.

Model Range and Production

The shipyard of the company is located in Aalst. The company's collection includes several models in the Elling E range of custom semi-displacement yachts from 45 feet in length. Each of the models is available in a number of layout variations. As the yachts can be used in a variety of climates, Elling equips its yachts with heating and air conditioning systems and double glazing, so that the panoramic lighting of the deckhouse does not become a weak link in the strength of its construction.

Interiors and Exteriors

Elling Yachts are known for providing spacious and comfortable living spaces with ample natural light. The open-plan layouts have a modern and stylish design with high-quality materials and finishes including wood, leather, and stainless steel. 

The exterior design of Elling Yachts is streamlined and elegant, with a distinctive bow shape that sets them apart from other yachts. Their low center of gravity provides increased stability and reduced fuel consumption, while advanced hull technology such as a bulbous bow and wave-piercing design improves handling and performance in all conditions. 

Brand Features

Elling's yachts are «built to last». The company's goal was to create a cruising boat that would be as robust as the Coast Guard's rescue boats. Elling's models have undergone various tests, including putting a production Elling E4 through a 360-degree capsize test where the boat successfully righted itself, a truly impressive feat of engineering. 

Elling's all-weather explorers are certified in category A (Ocean). In economy mode, Elling yachts can cross an ocean while maximum speed allows sailing faster than many classmates, low draft and falseness provide additional comfort when sailing on inland waters. Such versatility is not common on yachts and is a hallmark of Elling's models.
