by Miranda Blazeby
Fledgling brand Elada Yachts, part of the Lazzara Yachts Group, is set to launch its first superyacht this summer.
Elada is currently building the first hull in its 26.5 metre Elada EX87 series, which has been sold to a European client.
It is also already working on a larger model, the Elada EX120, which is currently under development, though details remain sparse.
Elada Yachts revealed its intention is to create “a new generation of ultra-high-volume motor yachts” with “disruptive design features, state-of-the-art manufacturing practices” and “personalisation”.
Build from Epoxy eGlass/ Carbon Composite, the EX87 features a spacious Sky Lounge, with a bar and games table, and aft flybridge, with a table large enough to seat eight.
Accommodation on board is for a total of eight guests in four staterooms, as well as a crew quarters large enough for a staff of four.
Key interior details include an expansive main saloon and galley equipped with custom designed “cabinetry, fine wood and artisan embellishments,” the builder said.
On the lower deck, the yacht has storage for a tender and Jet Skis, which sits alongside the crew accommodation and engine room.
Power will come from a pair of Volvo D11-720 BHP engines for a top speed of 16 knots, cruising speed of 12 knots.
