Broker's Comments

Elan have built over 200 of the Elan Impression 434 but they do not come on the market very often as they tend to stay in ownership for long periods with their private and charter owners. This is a rare opportunity for a ready to go anywhere, three cabin example of the marque that has been in the same ownership since new in 2008. The owners have added many enhancing custom items of equipment making her even more safe and comfortable for living aboard for long periods and world cruising. The sheer volume of stowage space below and the natural light in the saloon is particularly impressive.
