Bounty boats took over the original Appleyard and Lincoln built cruisers, called Elysian 27 and latterly Maderia 27. In 1975 Bounty Boats built a further 200 or more of what was called the New Elysian 27, or Bounty 27. There are two main versions, one with a centre cockpit and aft cabin, and the other with an aft cockpit and with an open-plan interior layout or saloon and separate forecabin. All versions have 4 berths. Bounty boats have only built the boat in aft cockpit form, some with a hardtop. In 1981 they produced an entirely new deck and superstructure moulding. With its shallow V bottom and long keel, the Elyisan is at its best as a displacement boat and is most at home on inland waters, but it is capable of short coastal hops in good weather.
Standing headroom in cabin is 6ft 1ins.
Length of V berth 5ft 6ins.
