The 2,065GT motor yacht is built from steel and aluminium, and features interior and exterior styling by first-time yard collaborators Harrison Eidsgaard. Elandess was first detailed in the 2016 Global Order Book, and was then revealed in July 2017 during the later stages of her construction.
According to the yard, Elandess boasts an ‘Atlantic’ bow and a stylish dark hull and low-slung superstructure, with her naval architecture developed in-house.
Her interiors have been designed to accommodate the owner’s wishes for a spacious, contemporary superyacht, perfect for both relaxed family time and entertaining guests.
Key features on board include a large 8m by 2.5m pool on the grand sun deck, a Nemo lounge with portholes below the waterline, an observation lounge on the upper deck, and a variety of flexible, open-plan communal spaces.
Guest accommodation is split across six staterooms, including a luxurious master suite on the main deck.
Interior fitting was completed in partnership with Rodiek, who Abeking & Rasmussen has worked with previously during construction on its 60-metre superyacht Kaiser.
Sea trials for Elandess are due to begin imminently along the River Weser and on the North Sea, with delivery expected later in 2018.
