Damon Smallwood of Superyacht Sales and Charter represented the Owner of Amels 200-02, and commented: “It has been a pleasure to work with Damen Yachting on behalf of the new Owners, the clients purchased her very late into the project and the Damen team has gone above and beyond to meet their special requests The new Owners look forward to taking delivery of this beautiful yacht this Summer.”
The Amels 200 reflects design features of its predecessor Amels 188 in terms of its naval architecture, high volume and hybrid electrical power technology, as well as a four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on Sun Deck. However, the elongated Amels 200 also boasts longer aft decks and Swim Platform, as well as full-height windows in the Owners Suite. These are design features that have been described by Tim Heywood as “only increasing her elegance and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior, which is illuminated by enlarged windows.”
Despite signing the project late into its build stage, the Owners have still been able to imprint their own personality and preferences on the yacht. Ancona-based design studio Luxury Projects was commissioned to pen the custom interiors of Amels 200-02. Italian designer Laura Pomponi, CEO and founder of Luxury Projects, spoke of this milestone moment in the superyacht’s journey, and the experience of working on an Amels Limited Editions.
“It’s been 4 exciting years, and a true pleasure working with the Amels and Damen Yachting team,” said Pomponi, “where the professionalism, the perfection, the dedication to the product is simply amazing. Up until the moment of sale, we have been working with Amels as if we have been working for a Client without any difference. The cooperation to reach this point and to achieve the sale has been fantastic and it’s wonderful to see her launched and ready for the final phase before delivery to her new Owner.”
Amels and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar has been involved in the project throughout the sales and build process. “We are delighted to have sold Amels200-02 and also to be able to mark the occasion with her launch,” said Pilaar. “The collaboration with all parties involved have contributed to reaching this wonderful milestone and the success of the project. I look forward to seeing the final stages come together and delivering her to her Owner later this year.”
