a central hydraulic system takes care of the swing keel, the swimming platform, the crane for the tender, the winches, the bow thruster and the windlass. To maneuver in narrow spaces we use an electric stern thruster in addition.

To adjust the boom kicker, to tension the cutter stay and the backstay we use a separat "Holmatro" hand hydraulic system

Stand alone hydraulic systems are the gangway and the ladder down to the swimming platform.

water supply

Also on longer sea trails there is no need to safe water. Elowyn can bunker 1.300 liters of fresh water and our water maker produces 130 liters per hour.

Warm water is stored in our 80 liters boiler. Either per electric power or by cooling water of the engine we always can provide a warm shower.

A fresh water shower at the swimming platform is obligatory on a modern yacht.


Two "Webasto" diesel heaters take care of cosy temperatures in the boat even on cold days.
