Streamlined elegance attracts yacht owners

Published in category: Markets

The 74-metre Amels 242 has proved to be not only one of the most hotly anticipated superyacht deliveries of 2016, but also the first of a very successful new Amels design.

Before the first yacht had even left the yard, Damen’s luxury yacht builder already had the next two Amels 242 yachts under construction at its yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.

With a dedicated 250 square-metre Owner’s Deck, the Amels 242 by renowned British designer Tim Heywood offers a private Owner’s retreat at sea. But the yacht also transforms into an entertaining extravaganza thanks to an elongated main deck party area with bar, dance floor and 6.5-metre long infinity swimming pool.

Just to confirm Amels’ position as a yacht builder in the 70-metre plus segment, Amels is set for the on-schedule delivery of the largest yacht in the Limited Editions range, the 83-metre Amels 272, by the end of 2016.

The yard’s expertise in large yachts continues with Amels Full Custom, offering true one-off creations in the 80 to 110-metre segment.
