McMullen & Wing motor yacht Elielle sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 25.6 metre motor yacht Elielle, listed for sale by Lon McCloskey at Worth Avenue Yachts has been sold in an in-house deal.
Built by New Zealand yard McMullen & Wing, she has an aluminium hull and composite superstructure with delivery in 2005 followed by a refit in 2012 along with new bottom paint in January 2015. A custom interior by Juan Carlos Espinosa with Sapele mahogany panelling sleeps six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite with a queen sized bed forward plus a double to starboard and a portside twin cabin, all with entertainment centres and white onyx en-suite shower facilities.
The dominant features of the main deck saloon are natural light and air. In addition to the forward windshield with only a single centreline mullion, the deckhouse is lit up through full-length glass windows port and starboard and a pair of electrically activated semi-circular glass doors at the aft end of the saloon. To provide fresh air when the weather allows, the forward sections of the side windows port and starboard drop down and a sunroof over the helm and saloon slides aft to let in the sunshine. With everything opened up, the saloon has a truly outdoor feel to it, while providing ample protection from sun and wind.
Power comes from twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines driving KaMeWa water jets to enable a cruising speed of 33 knots and a maximum speed of 39 knots.
Lying in Palm Beach, Florida, Elielle was asking $1,799,000.
