89m Amels Superyacht HERE COMES THE SUN Completes Refit
After a year spent back in the Amels and Damen shipyard in the Netherlands, Amels superyacht Here Comes The Sun has completed her large-scale rebuild. The launch is a significant milestone for the largest Amels yacht built to date, and she has extended her length from 83 to 89 metres during the project.
Delivered in 2017, Here Comes The Sun was already an iconic superyacht before she returned to the Netherlands in 2020 under new ownership for an extensive refit. The Tim Heywood-designed superyacht has undergone a full respray with colour change, as well as significant design modifications.
The Sun Deck aft has been extended and now offers a helicopter landing area, while the Bridge Deck Aft has also been extended to allow for 2 VIP suites with exterior balconies. The 6-metre extension to the Main Deck Aft also provides a larger beach club, spa facilities and a large 7-metre swimming pool.
“Welcoming any of the fleet back to the yard is always done with pride but with Here Comes The Sun, it runs even deeper,” says Michel Coens, Damen Yachting Sales Manager. “She represents the first step back towards full custom and bigger projects. Any of the same craftsmen and women who were meticulously involved in the original build have been working on her during this refit, remoulding and reshaping her into the new masterpiece she is set to become.
“Her launch is a very proud moment. Her additional length and brand new colour are stunning and we look forward to the final stages of the refit now coming together for delivery to her Owner later this summer.”
89m Here Comes The Sun epitomises Dutch excellence in yacht building, and is one to look out for this summer as she returns to the waters.
