Elliott 7.8m ‘Troppo’ – For Sale
Designed by Elliott Marine and built in 1994 by Al Carwardine, Troppo (formerly ‘Gone Troppo’) is a well known race boat and is one of the lightest 7.8s ever built. She is fun to race and versatile, able to mix it with sports boat fleets and does well against larger yachts in handicap fleets.
