Sixth Amels 242 Superyacht 'Project Shadow' Sold
Just over a week after the delivery of M/Y SYNTHESIS, Amels and Damen Yachting have announced the sale of a new 74m superyacht ‘Project Shadow’ from the successful Amels 242 Limited Editions range. Scheduled for delivery this autumn, brokerage house Moran Yacht & Ship represented the Owners in the sale of ‘Project Shadow’.
The Amels 242 range has enjoyed great success with six superyachts commissioned so far - well-known deliveries including M/Y PLVS VLTRA and M/Y NEW SECRET. Known for its sophisticated Tim Heywood exterior design and high degree of customizability, the Amels 242 is a pedigree example of what the yard’s Limited Editions range can achieve.
The Owners of ‘Project Shadow’ have been highly involved in customising the superyacht to their specific requirements, and the dedicated team at Amels and Damen Yachting have welcomed the challenge to achieve this in time for Autumn. Damen Yachting Managing Director Rose Damen commented:
‘We have a very challenging project to achieve all the Owners’ requests in a short time. However we know the boat very well and we have an excellent and experienced project team working on the yacht together with the Owners’ team and our co-makers. I’m extremely confident that we will deliver another beautiful Limited Editions yacht on time and on budget for her Owners.’
‘Project Shadow’ will feature a dedicated Owners Deck with foredeck jacuzzi, an increased capacity helideck and is set to meet the latest IMO Tier III clean emissions standards. The superyacht consolidates the successful partnership between Amels and Moran Yacht & Ship, marking the second 60m+ Amels yacht sold by the brokerage in the past 12 months. Moran Yacht & Ship also wrote the technical specifications and will supervise the entire build of 'Project Shadow' ahead of her imminent delivery.
The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts includes the Amels 60, Amels 200, Amels 206, Amels 242 and Amels 272. With 40 yachts delivered since 2005, owners are increasingly opting for a Limited Editions superyacht due to reduced delivery time, proven engineering and lines crafted by the industry’s greatest names in design.
