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 d©cor 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.
