About this Elan 344


Boat Details

The Elan 344 was the European Yacht of the Year in 2006 and it is easy to see why.  Enjoyable easy sailing, spacious accommodation and an air of well built quality.  

Schnoodle II ( a 2008 moulded boat but commissioned 2010 ) has to be one of the highest specification 344's built and has enjoyed a significant expenditure over recent years to keep her in top condition.  Recent new canvas work, engine overhaul including saildrive diaphragm replacement means she is ready to go for the 2021 season. A great boat for family sailing but easily handled by one.
