About this Elan Impression 434

Elan Impression 434 - Built 2008

'Countess of Sleat' is a well maintained and well spec'ed example of this spacious and easily driven design by Rob Humphreys. Designed for safe and fast passage making, her well thought out design and layout of hardware allows for easy handling. Equipped with a Volvo D2-55hp, 3-blade folding prop, Eberspacher heating, electric windlass tender and 4 cabins, 'Countess' everything a large group will need for comfortable cruising in Scotland


The Impression 434, the first of Elan's Cruising Range is absolutely stunning. Distinct in design and style and destined to be the best in her class. The Impression 434 offers a host of features that will be greatly valued by the blue-water cruising family or couple.

The semi-deck saloon exudes supreme comfort with flowing space, welcoming ambience, panoramic windows and light wood interior. The spacious cockpit steps down to a large swimming platform for days of relaxation, entertaining and pleasurable cruising. The latest in design and technology, the strength of the hull, quality of the joinery and fine attention to detail combined with years of skilled craftsmanship are classic examples of Elan's commitment to quality. All that is encompassed in her distinctive style. The emphasis is on both safe and fast passage-making. Exceptional seaworthiness in her class, well thought design and layout of deck and hardware allows for easy handling. Her design pedigree is the best testament for any serious blue-water cruising.

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 her wide sidedecks ensure that you can work in comfort.

In the navigation area full modern electronic instrumentation is provided including Chart Plotter, Navtex and DSC VHF radio. 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 800 liters 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 cooker has recently been renewed and has twin burner hob, grill and oven.

All safety equipment for 10 crew is provided up to MCA Category 2 charter standards.
