This yacht has been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment project over the last two years, that has included significant re-planking and fitting of new ribs, as well as the replacement of the major floor beams. The hull has been re-caulked, and will be sikaflexed below the water line and epoxy filled above. It will then be stripped back to bare wood before being primed and painted.
This craft has the classic and aesthetically pleasing lines of a Norfolk Broads River Cruiser, and she has been given a handicap of 26P within the River Cruiser Class.
PLEASE NOTE: The photos below show "Elf" in 2011 prior to her renovation. The inboard petrol engine has since been removed.
