Blue water Cutter: Reve D'Antilles. By Groupe Finot (France)
About the Boat
Well balanced comfortable cruising yacht which has twice circumnavigated the world.
Sleeps up to 6, but ideal for a couple. Very comfortable aft cabin which is a bit tight to get into, but feels like being in a cozy hut. Forward cabin only really fits short people and is close to the head! We tend to use it as our wardrobe! Elkouba is an older boat, but well maintained and safe. There is a book onboard, "Red Sails no Sunset" written by one of it's owners who circumnavigated and took it nearly to the North pole! Very interesting reading!
Steel construction, 12 tonnes, fin keel, skeg hung rudder, tiller steering. Very easy to sail and manoeuvre.
4 winches in the cockpit and 3 on the mast.
Electric Anchor winch
Two (new 2012) 135 watt solar panels and 3000 watt inverter - yes there is a hair dryer and we have been known to cook lamb shanks in the slow cooker using sun power only!
Aries wind vane and Raymarine ST4000 autohelm on tiller.
2 burner stove with oven and grill(LPG). Top loading refrigerator/deep freeze (12v) and a second side loading fridge with small icebox.
Pressure cold water, hot water is boil the jug and there is a 'very sophisticated' pump up shower system that can be used inside or out! :)
RIB dinghy, 2hp Honda 4 stroke outboard.
Fishing rods and long line. Two Kayaks may be available?
Talk to us about on shore accommodation also if you are interested, we have a beautiful beach house at Waipu Cove.
