Elena is a meticulous recreation of the historic trans-Atlantic superyacht race record holder from 1928. If you desire the ultimate sailing experience, there is no better yacht than Elena. A century ago, naval architect Nat Herreshoff, also known as the “Wizard of Bristol” and a true mastermind behind several notable America’s Cup contenders, designed her to win the 1928 Transatlantic race. She is designed for pure speed and performance, a schooner that can win, only this replica is every bit as fast as the original - only more luxurious. Herreshoff designed Elena as a sistership to Westward but fitted her with a fuller keel which lowered her center of ballast and amended the dimension of her rigs to further improve her windward ability. She is majestic and inimitable under sail. Step on board and discover her elegant and calming spaces, with spacious decks and stately interiors that transport you to a different time. If you are looking for a vacation to remember, this direct descendent from sailing’s Golden Age is for you. Exhilarating or relaxing or both, a yacht charter on Elena is a rare experience in today’s modern world.

Fast forward to 2009, McLaren, former captain of Westward’s 2002 replica Eleonora, set out to repeat history and build another Elena that could wipe out all the competition. Now almost a century later and Elena continues the winning legacy, having won multiple regattas including the Barbados Round Island Race, The Antigua Classic Les Voiles de St Tropez and Monaco Classic Week. Elena captures the grace of bygone eras, providing total exhilaration and utter relaxation in equal measure. With her impressive sail plan and a windward ability that is unmatched by both modern and classic yachts, Elena is a formidable regatta contender, and the ideal yacht for experienced sailors, for those seeking a new and unique yachting experience.

Her gorgeous interior is more than fit for an Admiral of a Fleet. Polished hardwood panelling hides sailing tomes, bottles of claret and flagons of navy rum. Her endless wooden deck is the place where we will design and plan your daily adventures. She accommodates up to eight guests in four ensuite cabins, all named after classic sailing yachts and they are generous in size, while honouring the 20th-century aesthetic - two doubles and two twins. When used privately there is an optional fifth cabin which can accommodate another two guests. The master cabin features an office-sized desk and seating for two while the three guest cabins all boast excellent storage space and privately controlled air conditioning systems. Elena has array of fun toys for in-water discovery, ranging from snorkels and kayaks to wakeboards and kitesurfing equipment. You will be able to spend sun-drenched days in the water alongside the other guests taking in the scenery and practising some new skills. With the two tenders you are able to be transported ashore for land-based excursions.
