Elliptic has just completed a global circumnavigation proving her capability as a true blue water boat. However, the price reflects the need for a complete overhaul of her systems and an upgrading of her interior, We have created a full inventory of her equipment and are happy to discuss the good, ,the bad and the ugly parts of the boat to any potential purchaser. This is going to be a project for any buyer but the end result will be a stunning, proven vessel with a world class heritage and we strongly recommend a viewing.
