ILONKA'S NOTABLE FEATURES: Helicopter landing pad ~ Fitness centre ~ Spa ~ Stabilisers.
ILONKA was a significant custom build for Pendennis at the time, being the first luxury motor yacht to be built at the yard. Her modern interior design promulgates the design know how of Redman Whiteley Design of London. Dubois Naval Architects was the naval architect involved in the formal nautical composition for ILONKA. After official launch in 1999 in Falmouth, the boat was afterwards released to the happy owner having completed final finishing. She had refit maintenance and alteration work undertaken in 2005 and 2008.
Her layout gives an incredible impression of space, with very generous sized windows, unusual for a yacht of her size. She has, for instance, six guest staterooms, each incorporating en-suite shower rooms and finished in verde Rajahstan marble. Other features in the interior include mahogany paneling to the dado rail combined with pale fabrics and carpets and mahogany briar furnishings. The overall impression is of calm sophistication and spacious luxury.
She also features a helicopter landing pad equipped with refueling capability, fitness centre and a top-deck spa bath. In 2005 ILONKA revisited Pendennis to carry out a three-month refit program before departing for charter market in the Caribbean. Her refit schedule included a full hull repaint, upgrades to her communications and entertainment systems and an overhaul of both her generators and engines. She was fitted with new deck furniture on her teak decks, renewed varnish on the main deck & around the rails, all carpets were changed by the original firm, which fitted out the yacht originally, window treatments were refreshed and all guests’ cabins were given further attention. There were improvements to motor yacht Christine’s communications and onboard networks too which means that guests have broadband available either via network cables to every cabin or wireless if they prefer. There is a hi-definition wide screen TV with surround sound in both the Master stateroom and in the saloon too.

"I loved the look of boats from age, well, nothing. It was the look of boats was as interesting to me as the hydrodynamics, both were equally compelling. I always wanted to design boats which were pretty, and I used to design model boats to begin with." - “Ultimately, the key to any business is the driving force and the ability of the person who founded it, but you do need a good team behind you,” - Ed Dubois
