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.
