There are many reasons why the Elan 37 - especially Petasus - makes a good buy. Firstly, at 37 feet, she straddles that all important dividing line between a great day boat and a full out cruiser as she has enough space for living aboard for several days. Secondly, with a full set of racing and cruising sails you can choose your level of excitement to suit the mood: bring the carbon sails to the club and you're ready to take on all comers; or why not bring the cruising sails and nudge the adrenaline levels down several pegs by nipping over the Channel for the weekend? Ask yourself this question: how many other boats can I find that give me so many sailing options for under £80k? If you are as excited as I am about this boat, then call me any time for a viewing here down in Poole on 07787 50 60 90 or email me: [email protected]
