Chartering a yacht for a vacation on the water is a fantastic experience that affords guests five-star accommodations aboard the most magnificently engineered vessels in the world. It is not too common, however, that modern yachting amenities can be found aboard a vessel with an enduring history as vast as the ocean itself. In the year 1910, American naval architect Nathanael Herreshoff designed and built a 180 foot racing schooner that featured revolutionary engineering for its time. An innovative lower-keel design gave the Elena a competitive advantage that won her the Trans-Atlantic Race in 1928. Taken from Herreshoff’s original design and rebuilt in 2009, the Elena extends the tremendous opportunity to charter her for the private yacht experience of a lifetime. It may not be a pearl white 250 foot mega-yacht, but her classic design and décor is equally impressive.
This timeless vessel will truly transport you back to the age mariners and elite travelers crossed the oceans with nothing but tall sails and a steady wind. The majestic white canvas sails tethered to the massive stained-wood masts will wisp you and your guests along any of the seven seas as you enjoy all of the ship’s luxurious amenities. Imagine relaxing on her teak deck enjoying a refreshing cocktail and freshly prepared hors d’oeuvres served by one of the ship’s 8 crew members. At the end of an exciting day on the water enjoy dinner under the stars while feasting on a gourmet meal, followed by a relaxing evening in one of Elena’s five-star staterooms. To make your luxurious getaway truly complete, charter a flight with Magellan Jets to rendezvous with Elena anywhere in the world. Two world-class charter companies, one unforgettable experience. Let your voyage begin.
