Yacht Description. Storm Wave Elan 295. This is a 31ft yacht. The 295 refers to the beam of 2.95m, nothing to do with length.
This very similiar to the Elan 31 being the same hull, top moulding and rig but with some minor modifications. The Elan 295 predates the Elan 31 by only a few years.
Storm Wave is priced to sell. Set up for racing or cruising. This yacht has had only 3 years of actual sailing use from new and has undergone a major refit of the principal fittings and safety equipment over the last year. There is a large inventory of safety gear, including life jackets. An extensive inventory of other equipment is on board.
Separate sets of cruising and racing sails. 8 sails in all. There is a general purpose spinnaker , a new heavy reaching spinnaker , solent jib and storm jib. There is a second reinforced halyard sheave now fitted to take asymetric spinnaker or code zero.
The history of this yacht is that it has been stored on land for 17 years of its life, making the active hull life only about 3 years. This is reflected in the engine use of 150 hours. A recent full survey (2017) is available. Small Ships Register part III since 2004.
Full renovation after storage was started March 2017 with replacing all standing and running rigging. Most of the electronics and electrical equipment replaced. New batteries, heavy 12v cabling and electronic charging circuits fitted. Engine serviced. New gearbox fitted. New alternator fitted and starter refurbished. Mast reinforced and extra sheaves added for code zero or asymmetric cruising spinnaker. New tinted acrylic hatch and washboards fitted to let more light into main cabin. Extended rudder factory fitted. Some cosmetic works now need to make this yacht look really good.
The VAT unpaid situation has been resolved by C88 part 4 HM Customs and Excise
