We are thrilled to announce the sale of ELANDESS, a 2018 Abeking & Rasmussen 244' (74.5-meter) steel-hull superyacht, by Seattle Yachts Fort Lauderdale broker Glenn Runyan. We would like to extend a sincere congratulations to both the new and previous owners on a successful transaction that will see both parties enjoying the yachting lifestyle in the future. Thank you to Burgess Yachts and broker Dominic Millman for professionally representing the listing for a smooth, easy closing. ELANDESS will continue to be enjoyed in the Mediterranean and Caribbean depending on the season.

From Boat International and editor Marilyn Mower.
Elandess is one of that rare breed of full custom yachts that sprang from a blank sheet of paper. The profile and GA, both by Harrison Eidsgaard, were well developed before the yacht went to tender. Just how custom Elandess is would be revealed deck by deck. Eidsgaard begins the tour at the swim platform, leading us inside past the tender bay to a bright corridor illuminated from rooms beyond. The light filtering from starboard is a beckoning blue. I follow it to the Neptune lounge, which is modelled on the Nemo Room of 83.5 metre Feadship Savannah. It is part grotto, part submarine, part amphitheatre and all completely brilliant. Its soaring three-metre-high ceiling is amplified by a wall of near full-height glass, one third of it below the waterline. Blue painted floors match the colour of the ceiling and seating, upholstered in an Extex outdoor fabric with a surprising chenille finish. The room is a showstopper; I imagine hours could be whiled away here.

From Business Insider SCMP.com:
The windows in the lounge measure nearly 10 feet tall and are 4 inches (10 centimetres) thick; like other aspects of the boat, the idea was inspired by the previous Elandess’ lounge.
