Our Alibi is an Elan Impression 434 like no other.

To be sure, she is a comfortable modern cruising yacht offering an exceptional on board experience whether at anchor or under sail. However, with a long list of upgrades, custom features and professional modifications, she offers passage making capabilities normally found only in a much higher price bracket.

Having completed an Atlantic circuit (Madeira – West Indies – Bermuda – Azores – Madeira) in the first half of 2015, she has recently cruised the Canary Islands and is now lying at Marina Lanzarote.

In other words, she is not only ARC or Odyssey ready, she is already perfectly positioned for another westbound Atlantic crossing. And if your desire is to explore the Med first, she’s only 4 or 5 days’ sail from Gib. Of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with sailing the Canaries, Madeira and the Azores, which is easily done from her current base.

I would not hesitate to deliver her to any reasonable location a newer owner desired, or to make a short familiarization passage with the buyer.

She is offered at US$175,000 which represents exceptional value to a prospective purchaser who appreciates the full features of this world cruiser. She is 'priced to sell'. The asking price is almost 10% below "agreed-value replacement" in the current insurance policy written by Pantaenius, and roughly US$140,000 below the cost of the equivalent boat purchased new today.
