After two years of construction, the Turkish shipyard Bilgin Yachts launched, in 2014, its spectacular superyacht Elada measuring 147 feet in length and featuring a striking ultramodern style.
The Istanbul shipyard completed the naval design while the interiors were developed by the renowned German studio H2 Yacht Design. The result: a perfect combination of modern aesthetics in its external lines and a bright classicism inside.
When we look at the Elada, the first thing we notice is its impressive bow with gentle, rounded lines, which rises to the third level giving it remarkable strength and robustness. Painted in pristine white, the all-encompassing hull is cut only by the horizontal lines of the windows that let in plenty of light. The decks, treated as outdoor terraces, have been decorated in light blue tones that complement the colors of the sea.
The interior delivers an atmosphere of exquisite and meticulous elegance, especially highlighting the polished woods, marble floors; ebony textures and wedge paneled walls. The decorative details—in onyx and agate stones—sparkle in the abundant light that floods the interior spaces. The main hall, with imposing leather armchairs, a grand piano, a bar for cocktails and a large glossy wood table, is the perfect space for entertaining guests at sea.
The Elada can accommodate 12 passengers and has six cabins for the crew. It also comes with a stunning private master suite on the third level with panoramic views, dressing rooms, glamorous bathrooms and exclusive access to the aft deck equipped with a Jacuzzi and a relaxation lounge with small sofas.
The VIP cabin and the dining room are located on the main level while the lower level has four additional double cabins, each with its bathroom, living room and access to a folding gangplank. The main terrace features a solarium with Jacuzzi, bar and a seating area for guests.
The ship is powered by two 1,980 horsepower CAT engines, strong enough to generate a top speed of 19 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. It also has a zero speed stabilizer and tanks with a capacity of up to 25,000 liters of fuel.
Undoubtedly, the spectacular Elada superyacht is a jewel of the Orient: modern, elegant and exquisitely equipped. ■
