Having only been listed for sale in March this year, the award-winning Abeking & Rasmussen motoryacht Elandess has been sold with Burgess representing the seller and Glynn Smith of Denison Yacht Sales introducing the buyer. The 60m motoryacht, recently exhibited at the Palm Beach International Boat Show, had a final asking price of €52.5 million.
Elandess was delivered by the German shipyard in August 2009. In addition to her first-class build pedigree, she is the result of a collaboration between two highly acclaimed design studios; Donald Starkey Designs worked on the exterior whilst the interior styling was completed by Bannenberg & Rowell Design. Her design work was acknowledged with the Best Power 40-65m accolade at the International Superyacht Society Awards in 2010.
Donald Starkey Designs apportioned spacious deck areas for al fresco living with generous dining facilities aft on the bridge and main decks. The sun deck features a large Jacuzzi with an array of sun pads and sun loungers, a bar and gym equipment. There is a large tender garage at the stern that houses a full compliment of water toys and two custom tenders that can be easily deployed via the Abeking & Rasmussen launching system.
Bannenberg & Rowell Design’s contemporary interior work combines innovative textures with striking artefacts to provide a comfortable yet stylistic interior. She is able to accommodate 12 guests over six staterooms, comprising: a master suite on the main deck with a walk-in dressing room, private study and his and hers en suite; four guest cabins (two doubles and two twins) on the lower deck that can convert into two full-beam suites; and a multi-purpose cabin on the bridge deck with two Pullmans.
Three other big sales have been announced this week – 54.9m Serenity, 63.1m New Sunrise (also sold by Burgess) and 46m Just J’s. Serenity and Elandess were listed for sale earlier this year, then exhibited at the Palm Beach International Boat Show – alongside Just J’s – and all three have been sold since.
