Australian motorboat builder Elandra Yachts has announced that two of its 53ft models will debut at upcoming Sydney International Boat Show.

“The Elandra 53 is a game-changing boat,” says Elandra’s co-founder and director Luke Durman. “This is a true long-range cruising motor yacht which will equally appeal to the owner who wants to stay aboard for a weekend or a week with friends and cruise the waterways of Sydney Harbour, Pittwater and way beyond”.

Since its launch in August 2014, response to Australia’s newest motoryacht marquee has been extremely positive, resulting in the sale of three boats. Interest from New Zealand and the US has also buoyed the team at Elandra, the company says.

“We designed and built the Elandra 53 to superyacht quality – the result is superior performance, reliability and extended durability, which people have responded to,” adds Durman. “We are delighted by the market acceptance of Elandra. It’s a great endorsement. We are now well underway with construction on hull no. 3 and are confident of orders from Sydney.”

The boatbuilder believes the strong NSW economy and consumer confidence bode well for the brand’s Sydney Boat Show debut.

“There is a real optimism in the market. We took boat number 1 to The Spit in Sydney last year and it sold within a month,” Durman says.

Elandra Yachts claims that points of difference include its spacious free-flowing design, superyacht-standard finishes, superior engineering and performance and intelligent electrical systems.

The design embraces the single-level entertainment concept, from its spacious cockpit through glass bi-fold doors to the convertible saloon lounge/dinette and galley. And Tom Barry-Cotter has designed a number of alternative saloon and galley arrangements depending on an owners style of boating.
