The brand new 74m megayacht ELANDESS emerged majestically today from Abeking &Rasmussen’s construction shed in Lemwerder.Several tow tractors carefully pulled the 2,065 GT new build out of her shed and onto thesyncrolift before she was finally lowered into the water for the first time.Celebrated design studio Harrison Eidsgaard was commissioned by the experienced Owners tobring their very particular vision to life. Entrusted with masterminding both the new build’sexterior and interior design, Peder Eidsgaard and his talented team have created a uniquelydistinctive vessel brimming with innovative design characteristics and inspired aesthetics.
The brief was for a modern and spacious yacht with large lounging areas for enjoying bothinformal family time and entertaining on social occasions. Consequently, ELANDESS offers aplethora of spectacular communal spaces, ranging from the Nemo Lounge below the waterlineto the 8m x 2.5m swimming pool on the very expansive sun deck. Remarkably, the yacht’scontemporary and sporty exterior profile belies her wide open plan spaces and flexible livingareas which feature large floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.
