Windship Trident’s 31.7m sailing yacht Elton is for sale. The last time she was put up for sale, she was on the market for only 64 days – so it’s likely she won’t be available for long.Photo: Bernard Gallay Yacht BrokerageThe sailing yacht for sale has undergone two refits since her launch in 1992: her first took place in 2015 and was an extensive 12 month project conducted by Solent Refit, who refreshed her interior, engineering and rig. They also gave Elton a lick of paint to her hull. The second was more recent, in 2020, which took place in the United Kingdom and which brought her a full commercial coding under the Maltese flag, rig service as well as an interior refresh, including new upholstery and artwork.Photo: West NauticalPhoto: West NauticalHer exterior design and naval architecture are the work of Bill Trip of Tripp Design who opted for a classic styling, bringing the best of the alfresco lifestyle with heaps of outdoor living space. While her interior styling was initially penned by Donald Starkey Designs, who had 128 GT of interior volume to curate.
