About Luxury Sailing Catamaran ELENA:
Luxury sailing boat ELENA is a traditional racing yacht schooner designed by what yachting historians would most likely say, the admiral Nathanael Herreshoff. With a degree in mechanical engineering Nat revolutionized the world of yacht design producing a number of America Cup winners between 1893–1920 before he died.  The original schooner Elena achieved her ultimate triumph after his death, back in 1928 when she won the 3,500 mile King's Cup Trans-Atlantic Race from New York to northern Spain. 
The current ELENA is only a few years old, yet classifies as a genuine classic yacht, a type of boat often favoured by the traditionalist amongst yacht charterers.  Her timeless and elegant design offers something untouchable, which just does not transpire within a modern yacht.  In people’s minds, there is an instilled assumption that a classic yacht would most likely offer an unsightly, old-fashioned interior. 
With ELENA this simply is not the case.  Seducing with unparalleled opulence, this yacht is as modern as it can get and with her super yacht crew of 8, the service on board is also at an exceptionally high level.  Add to this excellent value for money and you are certainly in for a treat.  With the most modern facilities on board, she offers a modern combination of tradition, elegance and security guaranteed by the state-of-the-art technologies found on board.  Charter ELENA now during the most popular periods in the year so as not to avoid the disappointment.

Luxury Sailing Yacht ELENA can accommodate 10 guests in a classically designed, yet very modern interior.  Her amazingly stylish woodwork throughout and elegant, age correct fittings are discreetly updated with the most modern technology.  The guests will find a Master, a VIP, a double and two twin cabins on board.  All guest cabins are exquisitely finished and fully loaded with modern facilities such as individually controlled air conditioning, iPod docking station, and en-suite bathrooms.  Exquisite mahogany panelling abounds and the individual interior ornamental details follow the original designer detailing.  Overhead portholes provide lovely natural light ensuring the time spent below deck is as enchanting and exhilarating as the one above.
