The galley is equipped with a two-burner alcohol stove with an oven, stainless steel double sinks with a freshwater tap, and Formica countertops. Drawers and lockers provide storage for kitchen essentials, and the top-loading refrigerator with gravity drainage ensures perishables stay fresh.

This sailing yacht boasts sleeping arrangements for up to 6 guests. The forward cabin offers a double berth with stowage underneath and removable support structures for racing, which are currently stored for versatility. The two aft cabins, mirrored on port and starboard sides, feature double berths with stowage underneath. The starboard side cabin boasts a hanging locker, while the port side cabin has a locker with shelves, providing ample space for personal items. The sleeping accommodations are intended to offer restful nights at sea, with foam mattresses over Scandi-Flex battens.

Below deck, there are lockable plywood floorboards, covered with bamboo veneer. Overhead liner GRP moulding, bonded in place, enhances both aesthetics and durability, while removable vinyl cover panels provide easy access to deck hardware.

ELUSIVE stands as a prime example of form and function seamlessly intertwined, with a focus on comfort, performance, and durability. Sailing yacht ELUSIVE's captain-maintained top-notch condition and accomplished race record in various global competitions make her a standout choice for both cruising and racing enthusiasts alike.
