One of the world's best luxury yachts
was originally designed by Nathanael Herreshoff in 1910. However, unlike many yachts which were designed for cruising, Elena
was originally built for racing. Herreshoff crafted her keel using a lower center of gravity—an innovation for the time. Her build won the vessel many awards including the 1928 Trans-Atlantic Race. While Elena
still races, she also plays host to those seeking the beautiful vacation destinations.
