#BOATS FOR SALE – A 'highly spec'd and well maintained' 2007 Elan 340 has just come on the market. According to the broker Crosshaven Boatyard in Cork 'the yacht has the unique advantage of earning an income for her new owners'.

Priced at €73,500 ex VAT, this hi-tech designed performance cruiser has been used as a sail training and charter yacht with Kinsale's Sovereign Sailing. James Lyons from Sovereign Sailing told Afloat.ie "The Elan is a perfect fit for our fleet as she is licensed by the DOT for skippered and bareboat charter. The concept of our management fleet is the that owners use the boat as much as they wish and we use it for around 6-8 weeks a year which covers all her annual expenses".

She can be viewed through Hugh Mockler of Crosshaven Boat Yard. The full advert giving detailed specs is on the Afloat Boats for Sale site HERE.

#BUYING A BOAT - With all the excitement that comes with buying a new boat, there are a number of important factors that every prospective purchaser should keep in mind, according to website Mad About Yachts.
First and foremost, any decision to buy a boat must be based on your specific requirements and your available finances. It's easy to get carried away with the idea of owning a large size boat, but it's pointess if you can't affort the time or resources to maintain such a valuable asset.
Figure out first what you want and need the boat for, then from that work out your estimated running costs - which include not only maintenance but also mooring and club fees. This will give you a good guideline to narrow down your options before you venture into the marketplace.
Always bear in mind that "one kind of sailing vessel cannot be the perfect choice for all kinds of water based activities".
