Ilona yacht by Amels in Cavtat Bay, CroatiaPhoto: Brian GibbensFirst launched in 2004 at Amels in the Netherlands, the now 82-metre motor yacht Ilona has over the past decade undergone several major refit projects that have seen the yacht constantly evolving in her exterior appearance. The most recent of which was a major refit and rebuild period at Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany where the yacht was lengthened by nearly nine metres from her previous overall length of 73.6 metres. Once featuring a distinctive RWD closed transom, Ilona now boasts a large and open swim platform that is connected to the main deck via two grand staircases. The refit also saw the RWD-designed yacht’s forward hull area raised to form a new sheer line now with a flush foredeck area, all by the hands of the original English design studio. Here she is captured by Brian Gibbens anchored off the town of Cavtat on the Croatian coastline.Β
