HYLAND There is a certain interior one expects from a ship--wooden--in a word, ship-shape; a standard of joinery not seen outside a Japanese teahouse. Such is Elena: the elegant 2009 recreation of the famous 1928 racing schooner built by the legendary nautical design- er, "The Wizard of Bristol," Nathaniel Herreschoff. Ele- na is equally suited to Classic Yacht regatta or gentle family cruise; its period interiors inspire moments of re- pose, while its capacious polished teak decks are per- fect for dining al fresco. To recreate Elena in all her 55 meter glory, latter-day engineers and designers used hundreds of hand-drawn plans lent by MIT as well as the resources of the still-extant Herreshoff Design Office in Bristol, Rhode Island, overseen by Nathaniel Herre- shoff's grandson, Halsey Herreshoff.
