ELA - 202150m Aluminium FDHF
Cutting-edge naval architecture and smart engineering are trademarks of all Heesen yachts, but even more so for ELA.
At 50 metres in length and below 500GT with a shallow draft, this yacht arguably possesses the most efficient hull form in her class. The FDHF hull design devised
by Dutch hydrodynamicists Van Oossanen has been engineered by Heesen’s in-house naval architects to deliver speed, performance, a high degree of comfort in all sea conditions and unparalleled fuel efficiency throughout the full spectrum of speeds. Built in lightweight aluminium to the highest tolerances by Heesen’s talented welding team, ELA displaces approximately 320 tons.
ELA's contemporary profile is characterised by a long waterline and floor-to-ceiling windows. A gently reversed stem with spray rails gives her a distinctive look.
Renowned designer Cristiano Gatto has created an intimate and tranquil ambiance to help guests relax after an active day at sea. Bespoke furniture in organic shapes blend seamlessly with refined designer pieces.
Warm walnut veneers, soft matt finishes and a unique, custom-designed, hand-tufted carpet by Luxury Pride create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere on board. ELA offers indoor living in full comfort.
