62' Elco Raised Deck Motor Yacht


Last Updated: 2023-10-09

ELAN VITAL is hull number 2059 from the Electric Launch Company.  She was originally built for the 1926 Boat Show as the first of her class and originally purchased by John Hallenbeck, who named her ALINE.  Ten more of this class were built.  ELCO was the premier builder of cruising powerboats during the Golden Age of Powerboat Yachting.  Now ELAN VITAL has been meticulously restored and upgraded to Bristol condition by one of the Bay Area's most prolific Classic Yacht owners and is presented in extraordinary condition and should be of interest to anyone with an appreciation for Concourse quality wooden yachts.
