The Elusion is Matt Layden's newest micro-cruiser.  Similar to his Enigma design in construction and design, this boat is even lighter at approximately 120 pounds, which means she can be realistically transported on the roof of a vehicle. In 2010 Matt entered her in the 1200 mile Watertrible Ultimate Challenge race around Florida and once more place first in his class. Oddly enough, her auxillary is not the usual sculling oar but instead a stand up paddle.
