Mystery boat manufacturer
 
Hmmm, how do things stay so hidden in today's information age?

One of the boats we found on YW is the Elite 364. But, I can't find squat for info on these, the manufacturer, or much reference to them at all.

On Sailnet, mostly seems those asking have the same questions, but no answers.

Has anyone owned one of these, or at least know anything about them?

Trying to research them...but, the mystery continues.

I Googled the name of the Naval Architect, Philippe Harle. Some info (mostly au Francais) on him, but still hunting for info of substance on the Elites.

Also found this:

It looks like it may be a French boat. Did you look at the other link I posted ?

Yeah, I attempted to paste that grid. Came out as sentences.

Thanks.

The Elite series of sailboats were built by Kirie in France... They're not too common in the USA, as I don't believe they were ever sold here, and most of the ones that are for sale here are immigrants that sailed over at some point in their lives.

Thanks Vasco.

Hmmm, that url is dead. Goes to a domain ad page. The mystery deepens.

Anyone in France want to try that #?
