Elandess

    The owner who commissioned Elandess (+49.421.6733.0, www.abeking.com) from German builder Abeking & Rasmussen wanted a family-friendly boat, but one that would "push the boundaries even further than his first yacht," rel="nofollow" says Dickie Bannenberg, of interiors firm Bannenberg & Rowell Design. Bannenberg’s edgy yet inviting interior—which displays the owner’s whimsical artwork and furniture gathered from his family’s travels—thus includes plenty of familial gathering spaces and such features as two staterooms that can be converted into one large suite. Delivered last August, the 197-foot yacht also offers a 969-square-foot main-deck master apartment and two other lower-deck staterooms, plus room for 14 crew. The boat carries two tenders, which are deployed via a launching system located at the stern. Two Caterpillar 3516B diesel engines power Elandess to a top speed of 16 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots, and a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
