Boat Details

The Elan 37 is known as an exceptional cruiser racer. Whatever your needs, racing or cruising you can do this with style, comfort and performance. Fast in light winds, but still capable of sailing at close to full speed even in adverse conditions. A comfortable cruiser with a well equipped good looking interior, that can still win races.

This boat has been equipped for RORC and the fastnet race requirements but has only been lightly raced. She has been comfortably cruised from the West Country around to the East Coast rivers with a comprehensive inventory to cruise or race.

The latest sails from Sanders sails will help to keep you at the front of the fleet whilst the other sails and equipment will safely get yourself and family from port to port
