Second Amels 200 MOONSTONE Delivered
It’s been a busy week at the Damen Yachting facilities in the Netherlands, as the shipbuilders announced the delivery of the 60-metre Amels 200 MOONSTONE. The second superyacht to be delivered from the Amels 200 Limited Editions range features exterior lines by Tim Heywood, and custom interiors appointed by Luxury Projects.
Captain Nahan Milicich oversaw the build of the project and will helm the latest 60m Amels as she embarks upon her maiden voyage. He comments, “We’ll be heading off to Athens to pick up the guests and from there, we’ll be going onto the Aeolian islands, followed by Sicily and finishing up in Sardinia. So a nice long maiden voyage, checking out most of the Mediterranean. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the capabilities and seeing what MOONSTONE is made of.”
Just three months after MOONSTONE was sold and launched, the yacht’s rapid delivery is testament to the efficiency of building a Limited Editions proven platform, while retaining plenty of customisation options. Captain Nathan adds, “I think the timeline line was really the thing that brought us to Amels. The fast delivery time. That Dutch pedigree is definitely a selling point for the Owner, and we’ve got a good product at the end of it.”
Laura Pomponi of Luxury Projects comments on the completion of the design: “This was a project with a challenging timeline in terms of final Owners’ supplied goods. All the interior loose furniture and some of the décor lights were designed and ordered just three months before delivery to the new owners of MOONSTONE. We are very proud of the end result with on-time delivery and an installation of astonishing quality. The beautiful interior is exactly what we dreamed of thanks to the team effort of our dedicated Italian suppliers, Artisan Workshops, the Owner’s team, the Shipyard and the Interiors Contractor.”
The Amels 200 is the same in naval architecture, large volume and hybrid electric propulsion as her predecessor. She marks an evolution however with much larger aft decks and swim platform, as well as full-height windows in the Owners’ Suite.
