roof hatch slides forward

aft opening window, with red /green buttons just visible left by aircon grill, these lift and drop the full radar arch together with scanner and dome, which makes low bridge work easy.

Middle window opens outward, smart "keyhole" shape on entry to lower saloon, is beautiful and is typical of the asthetics of these "smooth and rounded " Elling designs. But Elling do get the "Form over Function" mix exactly right in My view.

History One very Fastideous owner from NEAR new. ( two owners in total) Kept in Uk. Then trucked to South of France for a bit then moved to Montenegro, well maintained throughout her life.
Broker's Comments Stunning example , 560 Hours from new, with one owner, all ready for the season ahead. Huge Specification, vene if you want her back in UK, why not use her where she is for a Season, before trucking her back. Easy jet to Tivat.. is just a short taxi ride away. Wonderful. watch the videowalks to get a good overview, for exterior click this link, https://youtu.be/o9AlwADbwlw; and for her interior click this link;https://youtu.be/K6Ugv2qby0c
