Elinda offers her next owner a great
combination of blue water performance and luxurious comfort above
and below decks. Her fiberglass hull was built by the famous Italian
Moschino Shipyard using the mold for the Ferretti Altura 61. The
unfinished hull was then transported to the Mostes Shipyard (a well
renowned builder of primary wooden yachts) where she was completely
fitted out inside and out and teak laid deck. In her first ownership
she was sailed from Italy to the BVI and then onwards to Tahiti and
ultimately Sidney, Australia. She remained there for one year before
then being sailed from Sydney to the BVI, via the Panama Canal, in
only two months and five days.
She has remained in the BVI ever
since and was purchased by her current owner in 2002. The current
owner, an already seasoned sailor who had owner another large vessel
he had Captain chartered for many years, then set about converting
the interior of Elinda to offer more comfortable accommodations and
then chartered her with his crew from 2005 until 2015 when they retired.
She has received numerous upgrades
throughout the years including a replacement teak deck in recent
years, I am confident that this vessel will survey out well due to
the tremendous experience of her owner and would be ideal for an
owner that wishes to cruise in comfort, safety and make great
Elinda is dry stored in a keel pit
here at Nanny Cay Marina each summer and has never suffered any
damage due to storms or bad weather.
We welcome you viewing what is truly
a remarkable vessel.
