COUNTESS OF SLEAT : Elan Impression 434 - 10 berth - 44'

The attractive Elan 434, "Countess of Sleat" is the largest yacht in the Isle of Skye Yachts fleet. Designed by Rob Humphreys, the Impression Range is Elan’s move from their proven Racing Yachts into fast and comfortable Cruisers. Designed for safe and fast passage making, her well thought out design and layout of hardware allows for easy handling.

On deck she has twin wheels which allow steering in comfort on any point of sailing. This also helps make the spacious cockpit easily accessible via the transom platform and large cockpit steps. All the sail controls are lead back to the cockpit where is there is plenty of space for all the crew. However, should you need to go forward to operate the electric windlass and new Rocna anchor her wide sidedecks ensure that you have plenty of space to work in comfort.

In the navigation area full modern electronic instrumentation is provided including Chart Plotter, Navtex and DSC VHF radio. Countess also has an Ipad with Navionics charts and AIS. The yacht is powered by Volvo 55HP Saildrive Engine, and, should you require it the steering can be assisted by integrated Auto pilot.

Accommodation below is centred on the bright and airy Saloon with a table large enough to seat all the crew to dinner. Forward of here are a double and a bunk cabin plus a heads compartment whilst at the aft end are two double cabins, one of which is en-suite with the larger heads compartment with a separate shower stall. The massive water tankage of almost 800l will allow you to wash weekly (whether you need to or not!)

Central heating, fridge, radio/CD and all galley equipment will all be found on board helping you to relax and enjoy sailing this attractive boat. The L shaped galley is safe and easy to work in and the hob has the benefit of no fewer than 3 Burners!

All safety equipment for 10 crew is provided up to MCA Category 2 charter standards. Countess's sailing performance never fails to impress and she provides a high standard of comfort down below.
