In this series of articles, we take a look at the best charter deals currently on offer, as judged by our very own editors. What, Why, Where and Who forms the basis of the articles. This week we look at the 60 metre superyacht Elysian, available for charter in both the Caribbean and Mediterranean with Denison Yacht Sales.

What is on offer?

Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2009, the 60 metre superyacht Elysian features an exterior design from Donald Starkey Designs, with an interior from the drawing boards of Bannenberg & Rowell Design. Previously going under the name Elandess, she accommodates up to 12 guests on board over six spacious staterooms, including a full beam owner’s suite. A dedicated crew of 16 are also accommodated for on board, ensuring the ultimate charter service.

Out on deck a well-conceived design provides excellent al fresco space, with dining spaces aft on both the bridge and main decks, and an open plan sun deck features a large jacuzzi complete with sunpads, sun loungers plus cocktail bar and gym equipment. Performance wise, she is powered by twin CAT 3516B engines, providing her with a range of 4,000 nm, a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.

Why do we think this is such a good deal?

Elysian is the newest and one of the highest quality luxury vessels in the Denison charter fleet. With a total of four tenders on board including a custom built Hobie Cat in addition to a quality array of water toys, guests are promised never a dull moment on the Elysian charter experience. She also features one of the largest swim platforms in her category, allowing guests to fully take advantage of spending as much time near the water as possible.
