BEST of the BEST 2015: Bilgin Yachts Elada

FREE PREVIEW: The Bilgin Yachts Elada is among Robb Report’s 2015 Best of the Best selections…

A reverse-bow design and light-blue accents across the stern and topsides are distinguishing features of the 147-foot Bilgin Yachts Elada (bilginyacht.com). The trideck yacht features a beach club at the transom and an expansive bridge-deck terrace, and like most Bilgin yachts it is made from a combination of composite materials and wood. The yacht’s most striking element, however, is the contrast between its modern, almost futuristic-looking exterior and its classic interior, which is filled with ribbed and scalloped woodwork.


The interior also features high-gloss dark veneers and polished marble floors. In many rooms, wenge, burl walnut, zebrano, palisander, and other hardwoods are combined with leather and soft fabrics. The full-beam owner’s suite, located on the bridge deck, includes a large bedroom with a skylight, a sprawling bathroom with onyx walls, and an office.
