New Model: Elandra 53

Elandra from down under Australia has made to real its first awaited project, the 53. Interesting as it gets outside thanks to the bronze color of hull one the Elandra 53 is a competitive fully enclosed sport cruiser. The known down under names have in most cases always gone in the direction to mix up American looks with European design elements, not so for the Elandra 53 who embraces Europe and Italian looks fully into its exterior and interior.  Never the less the Elandra 53 still has a lot of Aussie thinking when it comes to substance; shown in the four hundred plus range at 20 knots, and a water tank of one thousand liters. In its layout the Elandra follows the formula of living on the main deck with an astern L-shape galley, and dining lounging only split by two steps. All this with the fully opening patio door also gets united with the aft deck making for a large entertaining area in nice weather. Below is all dedicated to three double cabins; full beam owners stateroom midships, VIP to fore, third bunk twin cabin to starboard, and guest shower head to port side.  A tender garage with space for a jet rib is located aft. Power is twin MAN 800hp which gives top speed up to 34 knots.
