Elizabethan 31

Elizabethan 31

£5,500 VAT paid

Built: 1979
Currently lying: Dartmouth, UK - United Kingdom

Yachting Brokers are pleased to offer for sale a Elizabethan 31. The price reflects her overall condition and owner’s perspective that she (sadly) represents something of a project status. The owner completely re-wired the yacht and installed new navigation gear, for it only to be stolen shortly after. Unfortunately after all the hard work this was something of a set back and along with the increasing mobility issues onboard reluctantly he has decided now to sell Proteus.
The Elizabethan 31 is something of a classic design and given the condition of the standing rigging and spars (renewed in 2005) and the Beta engine with such low hours, we believe ‘there is a good yacht here’ once again after a bit of work. She is lying ashore for easy viewing and further assessment. So if you are looking for a pleasant winter project ‘Proteus’ could be the answer.
