The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


Bought by the current owners in 2017 in Croatia. Since then they have cruised the Adriatic and into the Ionian as well as the Aegean. Previous private owner bought her in 2011 when she came out of charter. She has been privately used and owned for the last decade.

The Elan brand and the Elan 45 is a respected modern cruiser that sails incredibly well off the Rob Humphry’s drawing board. This 3 cabin version in private ownership offers a very spacious salon layout with linear galley with ample seating for 6/8+. 3 double cabins and two heads to complement the layout.
