Elan 434

With a generous internal volume and spacious accommodation the lines of the Elan 434 are nevertheless performance minded with emphasis on easy and rapid cruising.
The semi-deck saloon layout offers good visibility from below and the large overhead windows give an open and airy feel to the saloon.
The very large aft cabin has a queen size island bed and en-suite head with separate shower. There is a smaller double cabin forward, and an additional twin berth cabin means that the kids don't have to share a bed. 
The spacious galley offers a three burner stove with oven, plus refrigerator and separate freezer. The 75hp main engine drives the hull at an easy 7 knots and the 4 kVA generator means you can run a pop up toaster - or a hair drier!
There's plenty of space on deck too, with a large cockpit and twin wheels giving uninterrupted access to the swim platform. A spray dodger and bimini are there if needed to keep the elements at bay.
'Tough Life' comes with extra fearures such as in boom furling mainsail with electric halyard winch, bow thruster and even diesel heating to take the chill off those winter nights!
