Overview & History
by Hank Halstead
Westerbeke Diesel was serviced by Hinckley Oxford in 2013. The valves were adjusted, compression tested and glow plugs replaced. Compression is 95-100 #'s over minimum spec.
Vessel Overview In 2007 Elusive's rig, deck and sailplan were comprehensively updated for performance, short - handed sailing, to include a new Leisure-furl, electric boom-furling mainsail, Harken electric primary winches, Harken electric halyard /main sheet/centerboard winch with Spin-loc jammers. The full refit was comprehensive, with new Lewmar windlass, batteries, major re-wiring, 200 amp alternator and performance/navigation electronics.
Elusive is very well detailed for cruising, offshore and club racing. She has a 2007 North Spectra Mainsail, 2002 Marathon 3DL cruising genoa, 2002 Kevlar 3DL racing genoa and racing cut asymmetrical spinnaker, in addition to her original inventory. Her electronics have been upgraded with Raymarine plotter/radar and cockpit remote, along with B & G Hydra instruments and ICOM communication gear.
At present, Elusive is the most updated Hinckley SW-42 available on the brokerage market. For those considering the new "Daysailer" breed of yachts, she is as easily handled and as fast as any offered on today's market, at a fraction of their price. In addition, she's set up to comfortably cruise fast and safely to anywhere on the globe! Why buy a daysailer when you can have both!
Accommodations Elusive's interior joiner work is crafted of satin finished American Cherry, with bright-varnished teak & holly cabin soles, custom louver cabinet doors and a custom double berth in the owner's stateroom.
The FORWARD OWNER'S STATEROOM has a double berth with drawers below, storage in bureau, lockers, cabinets and hanging locker and a large opening hatch to the foredeck. The HEAD is next aft to port, with Wilcox Crittenden head, shower, vanity, cabinet and an opening port.
The MAIN SALON has a "U" shaped dinette to port that converts to a double berth, pull-out transom and pilot berth outboard to starboard and a large drop leaf dining table at center.
The "U" shaped GALLEY is aft, to port of the companionway, with abundant counter & cabinet space, deep double stainless sinks, Force-10 stainless propane stove, oven & broiler, refrigerator and deep freeze by Grunert, AR-50.
The NAVIGATION STATION is outboard to starboard, with a full sit down nav desk, molded seat, lift top chart stowage, drawer storage and comprehensive navigation and communication equipment. The ship's AC and DC panels are in this area as well.
Aft of the nav station to starboard is a large quarter berth area, with drawer, shelf and cabinet stowage and an opening port into the cockpit area.
Brokers Comments Elusive has had an easy life with exceptional care. In fact, in the early 1990's she spent five years in indoor storage at the Hinckley Yard in Maine without being launched. She sold to her interim owner in the late 1990's, who used her very lightly. She is among the very best maintained, and certainly the most updated Hinckley SW 42 on today's brokerage market.
Owners have taken delivery of their new boat and heading south. Very seriously for sale.
