Designed by Hoek Design, Elfje’s timeless exterior is inspired by classic pilot cutters of the past but underneath her skin carries some of the latest tech in navigation and sail handling systems. British studio RWD worked with the owners to create a custom interior to match the simplistic style of the exterior and included a special ‘oculus’ table in the master suite that is designed to view marine life underneath the yacht. Here she is seen anchored in Simpson Bay, St Maarten ahead of the recent St Barths Bucket in the Caribbean. Learn more about this magical ketch in our onboard feature here.
