Amels and Damen Yachting Sales Director Rob Luijendijk worked with the Owner during the sale, and comments: “We are both proud and excited to be building this new 60-metre Amels 200 for our client. This is a yacht which combines original design and high volume with exceptional functionality to really provide the ultimate luxury yachting experience.
“We very much look forward to embarking on the build journey with them.”
The 60m Limited Editions design is an evolution of the Amels 188, bearing the unmistakeable exterior design signature of Tim Heywood. Whilst the Amels 200 shares much of the naval architecture, high volume and hybrid electrical power technology as her predecessor, the design also benefits from the additional length.
Tim Heywood explains, “the additional length of the Amels 200 enhances the overall elegance and sophistication of my design, both inside and out. The larger windows create a lighter atmosphere to the interior, which is very welcoming. This is a yacht with complex, multifaceted forms, complimented with graceful flowing lines, which combines to create a real eye-catching yacht, of which I am extremely proud.
“Her many winding exterior surfaces allow the sun light and reflections to add to the magic and make her really special. I am delighted with the news that another client has appreciated the beauty and sophistication of this design, along with the quality of her build. My congratulations to all the talented people at Amels who have brought my design to life.”
An industry design master has been enlisted to help craft the custom interiors which are sure to match the exterior design in terms of pedigree. The client has selected Winch Design for the interiors, with the renowned studio having a strong history working with the Amels Limited Editions range, however this will be Winch’s first Amels 200.
“The sale of this third hull in Amels’ 200 range marks yet another collaboration between Damen Yachting and Winch Design, and follows a brilliant team effort by all those involved so far,” says Jim Dixon, Winch Design’s Director of Yachts & Aviation.
“It is a rare but special privilege to have worked on so many projects over the years with such an esteemed yard, and we look forward to bringing our collective experience together again for this latest 60-metre yacht.”
Earlier this year, Amels and Damen Yachting launched the first two Amels 200 yachts, due to be delivered to their Owners in the coming months. The third Amels 200-03, like the two hull before her, features a four-deck elevator, air-conditioned gym on Sun Deck, large aft decks and Swim Platform as well as a large Owners Suite will full-height windows.
