Grabau International is delighted to announce its successful sale of the 2007 Elan Impression 434 ‘BLUE VELVET’.
Launched in 2007 and remaining in her original private UK-based ownership until 2018, BLUE VELVET has been very lightly used, never chartered and very well maintained. Purchased by her current English owners in mid-2018, she was refitted at a cost of circa Euro 30,000 to prepare her for a cruise down to the Mediterranean and onward to her new and current home in Malta, where she has enjoyed cruising locally around Maltese and Sicilian waters.
BLUE VELVET’s specification highlights include:- • 3-cabin, 2-heads ‘owner’s layout’ with separate owner’s ensuite heads and shower cabins • Standard 1.90m draft keel • Conventional fully battened mainsail • Tri-radial gennaker with Facnor furler • Standing rigging replaced – 2018 • Volvo D2-55 55hp engine with Saildrive gearbox (diaphragm replaced 2015) • Kiwi-prop and roper-cutter • Bowthruster • Raymarine electronics package with Axiom 9 colour chart plotter and radar – 2019 • Class-B AIS transceiver • Icom SSB receiver with SailMail functionality – 2019 • McMurdo IC Nav 6 navtex • Sprayhood • Wind-generator • Blue gelcoat hull with non-slip deck • Avon inflatable tender and Honda 4-stroke outboard • Liferaft and full safety equipment package from 2019
“With the Impression 434, designer Rob Humphreys has drawn an attractive, purposeful boat that hints at a deck-saloon theme and wears its cruiser label unashamedly. Its high freeboard may increase windage, but it also adds enormously to the interior volume and keeps the decks dry. The hull is uncompromisingly strong, has a seakindly motion, and is capable of carrying realistic payloads.”
“With a clear focus on the cruising concept, a widely recognized designer, and reliable quality of construction, Elan has made a good impression with the 434.”
