$ 749,000

The 80' (24.38m) luxury sailing yacht TOO ELUSIVE was built to Lloyds A1+ and delivered in 1985 by Southern Ocean Shipyards. She was designed by Doug Peterson with styling by Jon Bannenberg and Andrew Winch. TOO ELUSIVE can be described as a performance cruiser with high-quality interior finishes and furnishings, perfect for long-distance cruising in comfort. TOO ELUSIVE's current owners have raced and cruised the coast of Maine with close friends and family. This prized sailing yacht has the strength to sail anywhere and provides optimum comfort for those aboard.

TOO ELUSIVE’s 2013/2014 refit was extensive, leaving her in excellent condition. Some of the highlights include a new barrier coat to the bottom, Flag Blue topside paint, new sails, all running rigging replaced and so much more. TOO ELUSIVE welcomes up to six guests in three cabins. The gracious owner’s suite is private with an oversized double berth, cozy seating area, private bathroom and lots of natural light and ventilation. The two additional guest cabins feature double berths and en-suite bathrooms with separate showers. TOO ELUSIVE keeps guest comfort top of mind. Crew accommodations for two include upper and lower berths with a private bathroom.

TOO ELUSIVE’s unique split-level salon allows seamless access from the interior to the cockpit, ideal for those sailing with children or pets to move safely from inside to outside. TOO ELUSIVE is not a sailing boat but rather a sailing yacht. The yacht’s interior showcases varnished light oak bulkheads and cabinetry with white whisper-wall paneling. The main salon seating allows the entire ship’s company to share meals and entertainment. 

TOO ELUSIVE’s modern yet classic exterior design is her most outstanding feature. Her glossy surfaces, beautiful teak decks and seaworthy superstructure make her one of a kind. The cockpit includes dining for six. This Southern Ocean 80 is designed and built for passionate sea-lovers.
