Built in the Netherlands, Brigadoon
, a CE Category A boat, is
designed and built to survive heavy seas, transit skinny water, and is
the only commercially available boat that has the ability to self-right
from a rollover! She is a high-end European pleasure boat, with a sleek
appearance, superb fit and finish, economical use of space, efficient
design, and masterful engineering. Her hull is made of Twaran/Kevlar,
which is five times stronger than steel!
Elling E3 has a well-deserved reputation for fuel efficiency, safety,
and comfort. Even in beam seas her roll motion is moderate, thanks to
roll-damping properties inherent in her hard-chine hull, which works
with the sea instead of fighting it.
A Great Loop veteran, Brigadoon
spent the rest of her time in the fresh water Great Lakes, until she
was purchased by the current owner in August 2018, who brought her
through the river system to the Gulf of Mexico. While in the Great Lakes
she was in the water 4 months each year, and spent the other 8 months
in a heated storage building. She is well equipped for both weekend
and long-range cruising.
COCKPIT, DECK, EXTERIOR
The navy blue Awlgrip painted hull and cream colored pilothouse exterior of Brigadoon
immediately draw attention. The main deck is all one level, which give
great views from the cockpit seating area, and make it easy to move
forward and aft. The freeboard is quite high at 81" at the bow,
dropping slightly to 67" at the stern. There are teak toe hole steps
built directly into the hull on both sides, which assist boarding.
cockpit seating area features a convertible wood folding table for an
alternative dining area, cushioned built-in seating, an exterior faux
teak sole, a barbeque grill with 2 propane tanks in a locker, a canvas
bimini top, and 250' stern anchor line on a stainless steel reel.
steps go down to the swim platform, and lift for access to a
lazzerette/storage room. The current owner installed an enlarged
aluminum swim platform with an aluminum swim ladder and fixed hand rails
for added safety.
The Awlgrip painted bow has a large foredeck for storage, and there is a raw water wash-down on the bow. Brigadoon is equipped with a 60 lbs plow anchor including chain counter, with 220' of 5/16" high strength chain.
pilothouse in entered through a door from the cockpit, and is one step
down. The step is covered by a non-skid material. There is also a
window that opens from the cockpit into the pilothouse.
Brigadoon is driven from the pilothouse helm. There is an
L-shaped settee to port which converts to full berth, with a folding
wood table, which provides seating for guests, and an alternative dining
area. Large windows provide clear views. There is a large panel in
the roof which opens electrically to let in fresh air and sunshine.
When closed, there is a watertight seal created by an automatically
inflating gasket, which is proof of the engineering on the Elling E3.
The leather, hydraulic Captain's helm chair is air damped, which makes
it comfortable for long cruises. All of the electrical controls are
located in the pilothouse.
The pilothouse opens to the salon which is a few rounded steps down.
The open configuration keeps anyone below connected to anyone in the
pilothouse, and makes the full beam salon light and open. Large
curtained windows also allow natural light into the salon. The
manufactured teak and holly sole is easy to keep clean.
The salon on Brigadoon
a large rounded settee to starboard, two built-in chairs to port with a
television in between, and a beautiful round table, which may become
the focal point of your time spent in the salon, and is another
alternative dining area. The joinery is exquisite and is indicative of
the craftsmanship that went into building the Elling E3.
The galley is to port, aft of the salon. Every inch of space has been
utilized to make an easy to work in galley that features: a large Bosch
dishwasher, a 4 burner Bosch ceramic cooktop with a Bosch exterior
venting exhaust fan, an upright refrigerator/freezer, a
microwave/convection oven, Corian countertops, a "wine cellar" in the
floor hatches, ample counter space, and storage cabinets.
The Master stateroom on Brigadoon
is aft, and is entered through the galley way. A walk around queen
sized bed is situated starboard to port. The large escape hatch aft,
and the window to port allow natural light in. A television is on the
wall at the foot of the bed, and a hanging locker provides storage.
V-berth is the guest stateroom, and features a full sized berth, an
overhead escape hatch, a full hanging locker, and a built-in bench seat.
The bunk room stateroom is aft to starboard. It can be two bunks, one bunk and storage, or all storage.
Additionally, the pilothouse settee converts to a full size berth for a total of 7 berths.
The head is forward to
port, and is accessed from the salon. It features a tile floor, full
shower, sink, storage, exterior venting exhaust fan, and electric fresh
water flush head.
full use of space, the engine room is amidships. It is accessed by
removable wall panels in the galley, and in the bunk room, which give
access to both sides of the engine. The panels are well insulated and
sound proofed. Additionally, the current owner has added Walker Airseps
which assist with keeping the engine area clean and the atmosphere in
the salon fresh.
