The 60-metre Abeking & Rasmussen Elandess – brought to market by Burgess – has been sold, with broker Glynn Smith of Denison Yacht Sales bringing the buyer.
Elandess was offered for sale by Burgess only last month – the first time the yacht had been available since her 2009 launch. She was asking €52.5 million. The Donald Starkey Designs exterior and the yacht’s blue hull give her an elegant air, while her interior by Bannenberg & Rowell is a winning mix of Art Deco-influenced styling with a contemporary twist. Throughout the interior, there are eye-catching features, with bold splashes of colour, innovative lighting and art-inspired solutions.
She sleeps 12 guests with a full-beam master on the main deck and four guest cabins (two doubles and two twins) on the lower deck, but behind that traditional layout is a very flexible cruising proposition. The guest cabins convert to two full-beam suites, while a multi-purpose cabin on the bridge deck has two pullman beds and it can serve as a children’s playroom or study.
The outside deck spaces are generous, with alfresco dining on the bridge and main decks, and an open-plan sundeck with a Jacuzzi, sunloungers, cocktail bar and gym equipment. Elandess has successfully completed a circumnavigation, offering a comfortable cruising speed of 13 knots reaching a maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles.
