Charter Racing Schooner ELENA: A Thoroughly Modern Classic Yacht

The Classic Era of Yachting refers to a period when newly rich industrialists in a pre-WWII world, ripe with potential, commissioned naval architects to create what have become legendary sailing and motor yachts.

Luxury sailing yacht ELENA is based on just such a vessel, Elena, the Trans-Atlantic Race record holder from 1928. While ELENA has been meticulously recreated using the original drawings by Nathaniel G. Herreshoff, this classic sailing yacht features state-of-the-art engineering and equipment. Aboard ELENA, charter guests will delight in an exhilarating, romantic and luxurious experience discovering the wonders of Caribbean Destinations.

Superyacht ELENA delivers a thrilling experience for sailors enthusiastic about taking part in the famous Classic Yacht Regattas of the Caribbean, yet is equally desirable for a gentler island cruise with family and friends. ELENA is equipped with an extensive sail plan for maximum power racing or cruising. Uncluttered deck space offers plenty of room for an active race crew or an afternoon of relaxation.

Nautical interiors on board crewed charter yacht ELENA reflect the elegance of the yacht’s flowing lines and pay tribute to the Herreshoff designs of the early 20th Century.  Below deck, guests will have access to all the modern day luxuries and amenities expected on a world class charter yacht including the latest navigation, communication and entertainment systems. The full beam salon offers a spacious dining area with seating for ten guests. To starboard, plush settees and a large television are conducive to relaxing indoors. Overhead skylights and portholes offer an abundance of natural light flow throughout.

Accommodations on board luxury charter yacht ELENA have been designed with as much historical accuracy as possible without sacrifice to luxury and comfort. Thoughtful yet discreet modern touches ensure the complete satisfaction of charter guests.  All five cabins are exquisitely finished with mahogany paneling, built in cabinetry, fine linens and first class amenities. Interior ornamental details are strictly patterned after original Herreshoff designs. The ensuite bathrooms have separate showers and toilets and feature elegant period fittings. Cabins have privately controlled air conditioning systems and fully loaded iPads.

This inspirational racing yacht has an expansive deck space with area suitable for the 50 race crew necessary during a serious regatta or for as many as 80 guests for a cocktail party or corporate event.  In addition, a spacious sun pad area with plush lounge chairs lures sun worshippers, while guests who prefer cooling shade can relax under a large bimini, erected over the boom, to elude the heat of the day. A custom designed teak table is easily set up on the deck for al fresco dining. The gourmet chef on board ELENA creates superb cuisine, pared with the perfect wine; the lovely repast is even more sumptuous against the beautiful backdrop of Caribbean islands.

ELENA, a truly winning charter schooner, comprises a remarkable blend of classic beauty and contemporary speed. After following the designs of the original ELENA so meticulously, there is no doubt that this spectacular yacht, nearly one hundred years later, is as successful as her original namesake and one of the most outstanding charter yachts available today.
