ELVIVA

ELVIVA - Owned by Povl & Marie Gade
She was built in a small village called Rantzausminde, 3 km. west of Svendborg, on the south of
Funen (Fyn in Danish) island. This boat builder was famous for strong heavily built boats for Greenland
(travel-boats for doctors) and others who need a strong boat for use in ice-filled waters, the pilots in
Denmark used them for service in harsh rough waters, where speedboats would perish.Fishermen
also used this hull for gill net fishing, in both Kattegat and the North Sea, they were open with a
self draining decks, (above water level) a small wheelhouse and snug cabin forward, only very few were
used as small cruiser-boats. The main engine for fishing boats was a 2 cyl. 30 HP Sabb diesels
(Norwegian make) or a 3 cyl. Perkins type 3.152 .
The foreman of the yard built my boat for private use back in 1972, I am still in contact with him.
Povl also has knowledge on Bolinder engines and is listed for anyone requiring Help.
