"Elusive" is a fine example of the work of the Lewis Brother’s from the shores of Harkers Island North Carolina. The now incredibly popular "Carolina Flare" styled hull originated on Harkers island and was introduced by the Lewis family.
This 41 foot boat is really a commercial vessel disguised as a pleasure Sportfish. She is documented as a commercial vessel and carries Federal and Rhode Island Fisheries permits for Swoadfish and Tuna. The hull was built in 2005 and she was fully outfitted in 2013.
“Elusive” is ready to launch and go fishing! Recent survey available upon request. Please call or email to schedule an appointment to view this vessel.

Construction Scantlings: Heavily built using Cypress for structural members: keel (Laminated), frames, floors, gussets and chine log, and deck beams.
White Cedar strip planking is used on the hull, topsides and bottom, using SS fasteners and West System epoxy. The transom is Okoume marine plywood; two plys of 1 inch. Frames are sawn with gussets at the chine. Floors all have 3/8” Okoume ply face plating on the Cypress. The exterior of the hull is a heavy lay up of woven roving and matt in West System epoxy. The internal hull has the same fiberglass in epoxy as the exterior, in the bilges from the keel to the LWL. The rest of the hull interior from the LWL to the rail is epoxy barrier coated. The deck is Okoume plywood; 2 plys of approx. 3/4” with fiberglass over all. Teak over glued and mechanically fastened on the cockpit deck. The cockpit sole and covering boards are royal cedar rom Spain. The house and flybridge are Okoume marine plywood with fiberglass overall. As with the rest of the hull West System is the epoxy in use. The hull and houses were faired using micro balloons and micro fibers in West System epoxy, all was then barrier coated before Awlgrip finish was applied. The interior liner is light marine plywood with fiberglass cloth over.
