Congratulations on your purchase
. I have had ELE for approximately 4 years. You can find pictures of ELE on the internet
via search on Bounty35 (I cant take credit for the website - previous owner).
I have always liked the Cole designed yachts and the Bounty in particular so am biased. They are not rocket ships but in a breeze they more than hold their own.
In terms of issues, the key is maintenance
, these are 30-35 year old yachts and that brings its own set of challenges depending on state and build of the yacht. While for most part the Bounty35's I have seen pictures of are similar, they all seem to have been built by different builders and have different internal and deck
layouts ie., Flush deck
Happy to share advice and experience. There doesnt seem to be a lot of information re this design around, so would welcome your feedback as well.
