"The Impression 384 offers a host of features that will be greatly valued by bluewater cruising families, friends or couples. The boat is distinctive in design, style and comfort, with more than a 25% larger volume compared to boats of its size. The spacious cabins, heads and showers are absolutely first-class, with stunning accommodations and plenty of storage. The semi-deck saloon offers supreme comfort with flowing space, a welcoming ambience, panoramic windows and its lightwood interior. The comfortable cockpit leads down to a large swimming platform for days of relaxation, entertaining and pleasurable cruising.
Exceptional seaworthiness in its class, well thought-out design, volume distribution and layout of deck and hardware all contribute to easy handling without compromising boat performance. Its design pedigree is the best testament for serious, fast bluewater cruising.

Rob Humphreys is an award-winning designer known internationally for his expertise in designing sailing yachts that successfully combine fast, modern hulls with all the comfort and convenience demanded by today's cruising sailor. The Humphreys Design team has an enviable track record of designing racing boats for the world's leading events; including the America's Cup and the Whitbread Round the World Race, as well as for leading sailors such as Ellen MacArthur. At the same time Humphreys Yacht Design has built a reputation for consistently creating popular and capable cruising boat ranges for internationally known builders such as ElanMarine, OysterMarineandNorthshoreYachts. When we designed the Impression 384 we set out to create a fast cruising boat capable of extending the cruising range available to the owner or charterer over a given time, and without any sacrifice in comfort or ease of sail handling. The 384 retains the same live-aboard qualities as her bigger sister, the highly successful 434. In keeping with the Humphreys ethos, the Impression 384 has a powerful but easily driven hull, combining excellent stability with generous freeboard to keep the crew dry. The well-protected cockpit is both spacious and comfortable, with generous seating space even around the aft end of the cockpit in the form of pushpit seats. " - ELAN BROCHURE
