This 48.3m (158.5ft) yacht was delivered in 1996 by the well-respected Italian shipyard CRN Ancona with classic exteriors designed by the late, great Paolo Scanu and styled inside by Nice-based Zuretti Interior Designers. Then named KANALOA, she underwent a transformative rebuild in 2015, which won a judges' commendation for achievement in the Rebuilt Yacht category in the World Superyacht Awards 2016.
Her expansive sun deck has a generous sun pad lounging area and a jacuzzi with wrap-around bar forward, an extensive array of gym equipment in the shade of the antenna arch awning and a large area aft for sun bathing, which presents an al fresco dining option.
Her main saloon is on the bridge deck and features an arc of main seating plus a gaming table and a smaller snug in which to relax with a book from the library. The sky lounge has plenty of sundowner potential with different seating areas to make the most of the moment. The formal dining room, aft on the main deck, is separate from other social areas and creates a real sense of occasion, with flexible seating for 12 or two parties of six.
She accommodates 12 in six cabins. The full-beam master suite, forward on the main deck, has his and hers bathrooms, walk-in wardrobe, sofa, vanity table and a separate office area. There is a VIP suite on the lower deck with his and hers bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and a lounge. Accommodation is completed by a double cabin on the main deck, two twin cabins on the lower deck, each with a pullman berth, and a single cabin on the bridge deck. Guests are looked after by 11 crew and zero speed stabilisers ensure comfort at anchor.
To entertain her guests there is a 7m (23ft) custom tender with a 240hp inboard engine, a 6.2m (20.3ft) RIB with a 150hp outboard, plus jet ski, Sea-Doo, wakeboard and a dozen other ways to have fun on, in and under the water.
Captain Yannis and the crew of LADY ELLEN II have cruised these waters all their lives and know exactly where to go to show guests, whether families and groups of friends, the very best that the Eastern Mediterranean has to offer.
