"ELSA" represents two and one half decades of comprehensive engineering and continual upgrading to make this Tri-Cabin Pilothouse Trawler a most desirable investment. Extremely easy to handle and with outstanding seakeeping qualities. The superior ride and tracking as a result of the deep set keel (with prop protection), has enabled the owners to ride out the seas in confidence and comfort. Unlike any other trawler in its class, "ELSA" offers a unique design including a well lighted, stand up engine room, three very desirable staterooms, galley, salon and lower helm station are on the same level, laundry room, two heads with shower stalls, safe covered wide side decks and economic long range capacity.

The low profile and 60,000 lb. fully loaded displacement, of this DeFever design make her a serious offshore cruiser and  a "Great Looper"
