Description:
This is a rare opportunity that doesn't come around very often for a buyer. Carpe Ventum is truly a unique and exciting performance sailing yacht.

The Elan Impression 444 has many features few can match, great sailing characteristics, a bluewater pedigree and an upscale, modern layout that will be valued by the bluewater cruising couple or family.

This Elan has the track record to prove it with one transatlantic crossing under her belt and many miles throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean and Bermuda. She is rigged for long distance cruising. Youll be hard pressed to find a comparable boat with as much high quality gear on board as this Elan. All the hard work and preparation has been done for you. If youre looking for a fast bluewater yacht, and one that will turn heads, look no further than Carpe Ventum!

Carpe Ventum was purchased new in Europe and sailed by her owners for several years. In 2015 the current owner purchased her in Florida and made extensive modifications to make her into a true cruising yacht.

In the five years of current ownership, the owner has sailed her more than 11,000 nm including to the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Bermuda. Of those miles, eight passages were over 400 nm, and Carpe Ventum has been performed admirably in extreme rough conditions.

Carpe Ventum is rated Category A. That is, she is rated for open ocean sailing. She is a strong, stable boat, but fast compared to most bluewater boats. She offers a great mix of sailing characteristics.

Elan Yachts are handcrafted in Slovenia under strict quality control standards. Designed by Rob Humphreys, known internationally for his expertise in designing sailing yachts that successfully combine fast, modern hulls with all the comfort and convenience demanded by todays cruising sailor. Rob Humphreys also designs Oyster Yachts.
