Elan Impression 434

Kinabalu a 2010 Elan Impression 434 is now available exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Named after the highest mountain in Borneo and Malaysia, and is a truly spectacular and fully sorted, fast cruising yacht. First up she is an Elan yacht, just Google that name and you will know that she is going to be very well built and finished.

Two owners only, the first, a husband and wife, had her delivered from the factory in Slovenia to Scotland then cruised her extensively over the next eleven years, eventually winding up in Australia, then heading up to Singapore, then back down again to Tasmania, where they settled and sold her to her current owners, following a final delivery sail to Sydney.

Sadly, the pandemic and other circumstances have meant that just one year on the current owners have to bid her farewell, but what an opportunity she presents…

Where to begin?

4 cabins, 2 heads, 3 showers, or maybe 2 double cabins, each with it’s own bathroom, and each with it’s own dressing / storage room. Excellent fridge and separate freezer, Force 10 2 burner stove with grill and oven, gas barbecue, diesel fired heating system, complete navigation and communication electronics, including Iridium satellite phone, 2021 Victron 350 watt inverter, 2017 inflatable dinghy with 2018 Yamaha 8hp outboard.

A custom-made spray dodger, bimini and linking sheet in 2017, Selden rig with standing rigging replaced in 2017, the list goes on and on as only a truly sorted long term liveaboard cruising boat can exhibit. We’re talking saltwater anchor wash on the bow, heavy duty Milwaukee cordless electric winch winder able to be used on all 4 self-tailing Harken winches, 600 Amp hours in the house bank, plus a 100 Ah start bank, solar panels, and even a 2019 Honda 2.2 Kva portable generator.

She was slipped, polished, and antifouled, and her immaculate engine was serviced this week (mid-March) prior to our team even being allowed aboard her. Even her mainsail and it’s zippered boom bag were sent away for Vacuwashing and have come back shiny and clean.

Nothing has ever been too much trouble or expense for lucky Kinabalu. She’s registered till next February and even her 4 inflatable lifejackets have just been serviced.

She has spares stowed aboard for her spares, and is literally ready to sail away this Winter.
