Back to yachts | 73.69 metres | Delivered 2004

Full Custom

Exterior design by RWD

Timeless class

Designed by RWD, ILONA is a technical and aesthetic marvel. In her first 10 years at sea, this 74-metre covered almost 150,000 nautical miles, taking her to all corners of the globe. For her extensive refit by Amels Refit in 2012, the previous below-decks helipad hangar was replaced by a large swimming pool with movable floor, while a new helipad was created on the top deck aft. With plenty of accommodation and a 30-metre Owners Deck, ILONA is built for luxury as well as adventure.

Our Favourite Pics of ILONA


“This was a wonderful, challenging project for us all. To be lucky enough to get a brief for something so different is a truly great joy. It’s also an added pleasure that the 73-metre ILONA was delivered to the owner on his 73rd birthday, as a sort of present to himself and his wife."
– Justin Redman, RWD


Major refit

ILONA returned to the original builder when the owner wanted a large swimming pool and a helipad large enough to handle his Agusta 109 Grand New helicopter.
