Elena - 201447m Steel
Home away from home
Elena 47-metre full displacement belongs to a breed of Heesen’s that are icons of classic contemporary yacht design. Moreover she is one of the newly styled vessels in this award‐winning class. Elandess, Blind Date and Lady Petra (built for the founder of the shipyard) received the prestigious Neptune trophy at the World Superyacht Awards.
With a massive range of 4,000Nnm at cruising speed, the precision-engineered round bilge hull and zero-speed stabilisers ensure safe and comfortable cruising in all sea conditions. Her handsome exterior styling and Heesen’s hallmark ‘pelican’ bow is by Omega Architects, who also worked with the shipyard to create the timeless interior design. Fine silk, wool and linen textiles complement the warm walnut floor, oak walls and lacquered ceiling to create an ambience that exudes luxurious elegance.
When it comes to the interior design of project Elena, the interior shows our ambition to use natural themes in our designs and at the same time, the need to create the perfect homely feeling.
Omega Architects aimed to set up a relaxing environment with traditional forms and materials, using warm woods, such as natural flamed American walnut and light‐coloured oak. We used significant traditional elements in fixed joinery, like the cabinets and doors, characterised by classical mouldings.
