Designed to deliver unforgettable experiences, the 60m/197ft motor yacht ELYSIAN combines state of the art features with cutting edge design.
Taking her name from the Greek word for paradise, the Abeking & Rasmussen superyacht leaves no doubt that she’s deserving of such a prestigious title.
Winning first place in the category for ‘Best Yacht Between 40m-65m’ at the International Superyacht Society awards in 2010, it was to great excitement that ELYSIAN joined the charter fleet last year.
Offering those on board the opportunity to enjoy a number of outstanding features, there is a wealth of treasures to be discovered around both her interior and exterior spaces.
Furnishing the main salon with paris green sofas and vibrant light fixtures, legendary design house Bannenberg & Rowell have ensured that superyacht ELYSIAN makes an unforgettable first impression.
Establishing the style which runs throughout the entire interior, this communal space has a hugely refreshing effect and offers guests a superb area in which to unwind together.
Making the main salon all the more inviting, large windows flank both the port and starboard sides to ensure that there is a steady flow of natural light entering it throughout the day.
Artfully blending bright colours and engaging textures, the interior of superyacht ELYSIAN is at once playful and welcoming
Accented by flashes of gold and cream, the main salon is separated from the formal dining space by a full size bar. Lined with bespoke bar stools styled by revered furniture designer Glyn Machn, guests can comfortably share after hours cocktails and conversation here.
There are also a number of carefully selected artworks which adorn the walls, making the experience of moving through the space a pleasure in itself.
Ultimately, the main salon is one of the defining social hubs of superyacht ELYSIAN and is sure to attract guests no matter what time of day it may be.
An ideal environment to toast a private yacht charter vacation, the formal dining section is located just forward of the main deck bar. Surrounded by colourful canvases and complete with deep seats, the table easily accommodates all 12 guests in a spacious and stylish fashion.
Whilst guests might be more inclined towards alfresco dining on board ELYSIAN-more of this later- there can be no doubt that she offers an attractive alternative should guests prefer a change of scenery, or would like to celebrate something extra special.
Altogether, the various communal sections on the main deck have been arranged to allow guests to seamlessly transition between them and enjoy their surroundings with a vast amount of space.
Situated on the deck above, the sky lounge of superyacht ELYSIAN is a contemporary paradise. Indeed, with warm woodwork offset by seafoam green lighting, this section is ideal for kicking back or socialising in styling.
It might, for example, be used as the place for the entire charter party to gather for a movie, or it might host an intimate after-hours cocktail soiree.
Boasting a full-size bar, the warm environment is furnished with a large C-shaped sofa and an additional brown leather chaise lounge. Bearing the enviable stamp of Bannenberg and Rowell design, the unique look of the sky lounge is sure to impress even the most seasoned of charter guests.
Superbly unique, the look and feel of superyacht ELYSIAN promises to deliver a charter experience unlike any other
The artwork which adorns the walls here features marble patterning and a fresh metallic fixture which helps to optimise the sense of space on offer.
A television can also be made to emerge from the wall, allowing guests to watch movies in the utmost comfort and on state of the art equipment.
All in all, the sky lounge of ELYSIAN is the place to be during the evening to reflect on all of the day’s activities out on the water.
Sprawling across 90 meters of the main deck, the master cabin is furnished with a range of fine materials and offers expansive views thanks to the windows which line either side of the full-beam suite.
Entered via a private study, charter guests occupying the stateroom are able to retire here and carry out any necessary work whilst on vacation. Complete with a large deck and deep leather seating, there’s few offices in the world which could compete with such excellent surroundings.
Back in the sleeping area of the master suite, guests will find a centrally positioned king sized bed with a large reclining chair found to one side. There’s also a state of the art television discreetly placed in the wall a short distance away, allowing guests to remain entertained once they’ve returned from the communal areas of ELYSIAN.
Another feature of the master cabin which makes it particularly attractive is the large his and hers ensuite facilities. Finished in neutral tones and boasting an enormous bathtub, couples will find themselves easily making good use of this section throughout the day.
What’s more, with a walk-in dressing room on offer to store the occupants’ outfits, picking out what to wear couldn’t be more convenient, either.
From a charter perspective, superyacht ELYSIAN stands out thanks to her highly flexible cabin configuration. Indeed, with the ability to transform the four lower deck staterooms from 2 full-beam suites to 4 separate cabins makes her particularly ideal for larger groups.
With each of the cabins enjoying state of the art entertainment systems as well as overhead rain showers, every guest on board is able to enjoy outstanding comfort no matter where they choose to sleep.
Each graced with its own distinct personality, guests will still inevitably form a preference for one of the suites, appreciating all of the major and minor details provided by Bannenberg and Rowell.
Whilst the communal and guest spaces on board superyacht ELYSIAN provide plenty to see and do, simply navigating the interior areas is a pleasure in and of itself.
Indeed, from artworks inspired by Rene Magritte to colourful fixtures, the eye is never once bored when travelling through the motor yacht.
This isn’t to suggest that the interior styling is at all crowded- the British design duo have ensured that everything flows beautifully and there is a great consistency at work across the entire vessel.
Perfectly complementing the interior arrangements conjured up by Bannenberg and Rowell, the exterior of superyacht ELYSIAN has been perfectly styled by Dubai-based designer Donald Starkey.
Indeed, from the enormous forward-facing Jacuzzi on the flybridge to the various exposed and shaded lounging spaces, charter guests can enjoy a range of environments whilst taking in their surroundings.
Particularly good for relaxation, there are exterior spa facilities surrounded by sunpads to ensure that guests can rest up in comfort.

Sure to keep guests sufficiently refreshed whilst they are out in the sun, there is a full size wet bar on the port side and plenty of furnishings to take drinks back to.
For active fun-lovers, the large swim platform which stretches off the aft provides plenty of space to get on board kayaks, Seabobs, and even an inflatable trampoline which has proven particularly popular amongst families.
It’s also worth pointing out that guests are able to step off ELYSIAN and onto a bespoke classic tender whenever they want to make their way to the mainland in a cool and impressive fashion.
Ultimately, charter guests are able to enjoy the highest level of comfort and luxury when away on a private yacht charter vacation with ELYSIAN.
Whether they want to work on a tan, take advantage of the wellness facilities, or sip on some cocktails in the sky lounge, they will be able to do so in supreme style.
Of course, the destinations she cruises in are every bit as exciting as her design, so vacations promise to be unforgettably unique.
