Not for sale or charter to U.S. residents while in U.S. waters.

A striking yacht with a chic plumb bow and sleek profile, the 163'5" (49.8m) ELA promises exceptional summers in the Mediterranean and unparalleled winter adventures in the Caribbean. Built by the celebrated Dutch shipyard Heesen in 2021, the award-winning ELA features exterior design by Omega Architects and hull design by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. With impressive deck space and generous volumes, ELA had star quality from bow to stern.

ELA’s understated Cristiano Gatto interiors are more than equal to her innovative exterior lines. Replete with Italian style, Gatto’s design makes the most of ELA’s vast floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor is simple yet bold, using rich materials including warm Canaletto walnut, supple leathers, onyx and ultra-light marble and furnishing by the likes of Zanotta, B&B Italia, Poltrona Frau and Promemoria. In the main salon, furnishings are beautifully modern with elegant curves and unusual shapes, mainly in neutral tones. A cornflower blue chaise longue provides a surprising pop of color that reflects the crystal seas beyond the massive windows. The simple lounge area with a stunning crackle lacquer coffee table and plush sofa flows through to the softly curved leather and resin dining table that changes color via remote control.

The upper deck sky lounge is a congenial space with a stylish glass-topped bar, color-changing coffee table and games table for some friendly competition. There’s a sumptuous cream sofa with throw cushions and an ottoman in contrasting aubergine. Again, the idea behind the simple design is not to compete with the view.

Decks on ELA also feature sophisticated uncluttered design with bespoke furniture pieces by Paola Lenti. The main aft deck is the ideal spot for morning coffee while taking in the bustle of busy port life from the plush sofas. The bridge deck showcases a custom table designed by Gatto for fantastic alfresco dining shaded by the sun deck overhang. There is also a lovely lounge area for nightcaps under the stars or coffee and petit fours. Once the tenders are launched, the tender bay transforms into an outdoor cinema with a massive screen and comfy sun pad seating for movies under the stars.

During the day, guests are likely to gravitate to the expansive sun deck for bronzing on the sun loungers, sipping cocktails at the sit-up bar or soaking in the Jacuzzi. The dining table is perfect for casual alfresco meals shaded by the hard top.

ELA accommodates her 12 guests in six stunning staterooms, including a spectacular full-beam master suite on the main deck. Full-height windows provide stellar views without having to step foot from the king-size bed. There’s a separate lounge, an intimate dining area and a generous en-suite bathroom. A full-beam VIP stateroom, two double staterooms and two twin cabins with additional Pullman bunks can be found on the lower deck, each with dedicated en-suite facilities.

A fully equipped gym and sauna can also be found on the lower deck, conveniently located for both the accommodations and the beach club.

While there is plenty to keep guests entertained on board, it would be a shame to miss out on using the wide range of water toys and tenders ELA has in her arsenal. There are two SeaDoo Jet Skis, a flyboard, and Schiller bikes for riding on the water. Paddleboards and kayaks allow for gentler pursuits while the scuba gear and SeaBobs unlock the underwater wonders of ELA’s cruising grounds. Three tenders, including a 37'9" Fjord tender, allow for shoreline exploring and quick trips to port.

Ensuring guests get the most from their luxury charter vacation is ELA’s stellar crew of nine who exceed expectations with their exemplary service and incredible attention to detail. If you’re looking for a memorable and luxurious Mediterranean charter adventure, look no further than ELA.
