Elysian 34 ‘Not For Hire’ Reduced to £27,995

A very well cared for example of this very spacious and practical river cruiser with fully sliding canopy. This 1976 Broads Cruiser stern wide beam was built by Appleyard Lincoln Boats of Ely in 1976. The seller bought the vessel in October 2017 with a view to completely refurbishing her which has now been done to a very high specification. She is very flexible having two toilets and sleeping 4/6 but is also of a size which can go anywhere on the Great Ouse system up to Cardington Lock. A mooring would be available to a new owner with our consent and subject to our terms and conditions.
Please contact us to arrange a viewing.
The standard of finish both internally and externally is first class having just been redone. The upholstery and carpets are all as new. The boat benefits from having had a recent survey (4/4/18) and has a current BSS to 2022.

GRP white painted hull and topsides with navy blue coach lines, sliding cockpit roof, blue canopy curtain, black painted non-slip deck panels, aluminium pulpit and grab rails, anodized aluminium single glazed windows and screen.

Interior accommodation is traditional for a spacious river cruiser of this type with twin vee berths to port and starboard sides of the separate forward cabin convertible to a double bed with an infill. A toilet compartment with a sea toilet and vanity unit is provided in the forward cabin to the port side and thee is ample storage.
The main saloon and wheelhouse with port side helm and co-pilot’s seat is located amidships, and this has a convertible dinette settee that will also convert to a double berth with storage under the seating. There is good access to the engine bay and the entire roof slides back above the saloon.
The aft cabin comprises a refitted galley to the port side and a further toilet and shower compartment to starboard. There is an aft cabin with two single berths with storage underneath and a single door to the aft well and deck.
The accommodation is therefore very flexible with 6 berths in 3 separate cabins with option of 2 doubles and 2 singles or 1 double and 4 singles.
The internal headroom is approximately 6’3″.
