Too Elusive has been owned by a renowned sailor and cruised with his family extensively. For the past few years she has been sailed in the summers in New England and kept at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine in a shed during winters. During the 2012-2013 winter she had an extensive refit. She was fully repainted in flag blue Awlgrip, and a shoe was installed on the keel. Several mechanical upgrades were made on TOO ELUSIVE, most significantly her steering system and rudder bearings. Her aft cabin had a complete rebuild while most of the main salon also was rebuilt, removing and rebuilding including crafting, overheads and replacing all the wood. A new nav station was built and installed with all new electronics.
Additionally, her rigging was given a facelift with new paint on her main and mizzen masts. Front Street’s riggers replaced much of her running rigging and some of her standing rigging. Finally, she was outfitted with all new sails.
Too Elusive’s ketch rig makes her easy to sail in all conditions and allows her to be handled by a small crew. Her sails can be balanced to match all weather conditions, she is a safe, seaworthy, world sailing vessel that is sea kindly in adverse conditions and a pleasure to sail.
