Elandra launches latest 53 model
Luxury yacht builder adds to range of 53-foot motor yachts.
Queensland boat builder, Elandra Yachts, has announced that the latest addition to its range of 53 foot yachts has been launched and can be viewed Leigh-Smith Yachts at Sanctuary Cove.
Elandra Yachts managing director Luke Durman said the newest 53 model, which originally debuted in 2014, featured a striking two-tone black and champagne gold hull and had been refined in response to international feedback to incorporate a range of options for customers.
“This latest model is a refinement of Elandra’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and superior performance, and embodies the brand’s focus on continuous and never-ending improvement,” he said.
“We have a close knit team of qualified tradesmen who all work together to see each new boat through from the initial drafting stage to completion. Bringing together that level of combined knowledge, finesse and experience, and focus of concentrated production, is really the hallmark of a great quality vessel.”
Elandra recently marked its entry into the US market with the appointment of Michael Usina to the Florida-based role of president of Elandra Yachts Sales in the Americas.
The boat builder has committed $3.5 million to research and development over the next two years and plans to build four to six boats in the 2016 financial year, including three 53s and one 49, with its first US delivery of an Elandra 53 scheduled for mid-2016.
