Elan 40 from 2005 in great condition

The Elan 40 is a very dynamic and elegant 40 foot sailboat. Accommodation is in an extremely fine processing and quality. This Elan 40 is a three-cabin version with a toilet and is sold by its first owner. The boat has only been used for touring and holiday sailing. Every winter, the boat has been stored in a heated hall on its own boat cart, which follow to its new owner. A newer genoa as well as a fine mainsail with Lazyjack and 6 self-tailing winches makes sailing easy to handle. The engine is a 55 hp Volvo Penta. The owner upgraded the engine a few years after purchase from the original 40 hp.

There is good comfort onboard for up to 8 persons if the main cabin is used. In the three cabins there is room for 6 persons. There is a standing height of 1.98 m. in the main cabin and slightly less in the three cabins. On cold evenings there is diesel heather and hot water in the taps. The galley is with oven and tree gas flares as well as refrigerator with new compressor and cooling unit from 2021. There are 220 v. outlets in the cabins and new consumption and starter batteries from 2021.

All in all, a really nice and very well-maintained sailboat for the family, but also the opportunity for racing if it should become topical.
