Broker's Comments

What a beautiful Elan Impression 344 this boat is!

As soon as you step on board you can tell that she's been looked after and seems to have had very light use.

Her large and well equipped cockpit with lots of lockers, easy sea access and comprehensive instrumentation, should contribute to very pleasurable and relaxing sailing.

Down below, her light woodwork, galley work surfaces and deckhead, couple with her many windows and hatches, make for a lovely, inviting and airy interior, with plenty of ventilation too.

Three large cabins provide space and comfort for overnight stays and her cavernous saloon and conventional galley layout could make life on board very pleasant.

Her engine started first time and I could see no issues - all in all, she looks like a great example of these yachts, from the legendary Elan stable and I think she'll suit couples, families or groups of friends who may wish to use her for weekend fun, or much longer cruises, further afield.

My only criticism would be that her canvaswork needs valeting!
