Built by Windship Trident in 1992, with a full service in 2023 and an interior refit and new rigging in 2021, at 31.7m, S/Y Elton (ex Lunar Mist, Cinderella II) offers charter guests a spacious and stylish approach to sailing.
Her 2023 service included all of the yacht’s major technical components, engine, generators, bow thrusters etc, while her major refit in 2021 saw her turned into an elegant and spacious option for those seeking a luxury sailing experience.
During the refit, the mast was taken down and fully restored and the interior received all new upholstery, new panelling, new artwork and new linens and finishings, giving her a fresh and contemporary look. The vessel’s sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of Tripp Design, while her timeless interior is the work of renowned superyacht designer Donald Starkey.
She accommodates up to eight guests overnight with up to three crew members to ensure guests have an exquisitely comfortable and luxurious experience throughout every charter.
Performance wise, a top speed of 12.5 knots and a cruising speed of 9 knots ensure relaxed sailing and excellent performance on the water, with propulsion from a diesel powered Lugger engine, with 15,000 hours to date.
The aft deck serves as the perfect place for guests to unwind in the sun, with an optional Bimini when shade is required. There are C-shaped sofas either side and a large table for alfresco group dining and cocktails on an evening. The stern leads down to the swim platform, where the swim ladder grants easy access to the ocean.
All cabins are en-suite and have a double bed, plenty of wardrobe space and a skylight for plenty of natural illumination. The Master en-suite has a bathtub and shower, plus a vanity and head. The other en-suite bathrooms all feature a vanity, head and shower.
