Her sophisticated external design is characterised by the lengthy, sweeping lines from her Atlantic bow to stern. Featuring an ‘Atlantic’ plumb bow for increased comfort on board and unique naval architecture developed by Abeking & Rasmussen in-house team, Elandess is able to smoothly cross oceans.

In addition, a unique Nemo observation lounge with portholes below the waterline and upper deck salon offer guests a new perspective of the cruising areas they explore. One of Elandess other stand out features is her 8 by 2.25-metre swimming pool, located on her spacious sun deck.
