Élan is ready to leave the dock today for extended cruising. This blue water sailer will take you anywhere your dreams can imagine. She has traveled the world and now it’s your turn. She is currently cruising the US Keys and the Bahamas.
This Crealock designed Cabo Rico Custom Yacht has taken its place as one of the finest cruising sailboats in the world. She is featured in Ferenc Mate’s book “The Worlds Best Sailboats volume II” where you can view the impeccable quality workmanship and classic lines. "Cabo Rico has gained a well deserved reputation ... (by) paying close attention to detail", states SAILING MAGAZINE. Naval Academy grad Scott Steward calls Cabo Ricos “fabulous offshore boats that sail happily in big winds”. They have a smooth powerful gliding motion partly from the true compound-curve clipper bow and partly from the dolphin style hull shape.
Cabo Rico yachts are fast yet comfortable underway, safe and easy to sail. Balancing beautifully in light or heavy air, the hands off tracking ability combines with good pointing and a fine turn of speed. Elegant and comfortable living accommodations surround you with hand finished, solid teak, plantation grown in Costa Rica. Designed to carry all the provisions and equipment you need for long distance sailing, they will take you quickly and safely anywhere you want to go... and back again.
