YPI sells Akhir luxury yacht Elena B with Fraser Yachts
2014-07-21By Malcolm MacLean

Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners International tells me that Mike Rich has found a buyer for the 26.6m motor yacht Elena B, listed for sale by Oscar Romano at Fraser Yachts.

Elena B was built by Italian yard Cantieri di Pisa as one of the yachts in the yard’s Akhir range and has had the same owners since delivery in 2006. Her aft deck has a large table comfortably seating eight guests beneath a custom fully removable sun awning and, moving forward, the main saloon is an expansive, bright area with sofas, armchairs, a large television and formal dining for eight. Up to nine guests are accommodated in four staterooms. The master suite is amidships below deck with a VIP stateroom in the bow and there are starboard double and port twin cabins. All staterooms have en suite bathroom facilities.

A favourite spot on Elena B is her multi-function flybridge, complete with sun pads, dining table, settee, bar, fridge and barbecue for al fresco dining. Twin 2000hp MTU engines and a planing hull give her a top speed of 26 knots and she is fitted with Trac zero speed stabilisers.

Mike Rich comments: 'Elena B is one of the finest examples of the Akhir range on the market. She has been superbly maintained and now her new owner is already benefitting from and enjoying all she has to offer this summer.'

Elena B was asking €1.8 million.
