Amels will build its largest full custom yacht
Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS has announced a new order for a 78-metre Amels Full Custom yacht (256 ft) by Espen Øino with the contract signed during the Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
When the yacht is delivered in 2021, it will be the largest Amels by Gross Tonnage built to date.
“This is a particularly significant contract for Amels and a great compliment for our Full Custom team,” comments Rose Damen, Amels Commercial Director.
While further details of the project are under wraps, the yacht’s approximately 2,850 Gross Tonnage will make it the largest constructed at the yard so far.
Espen Øino, who developed the exterior design and General Arrangement plan together with the owner, says: "For our team it is the first time we have collaborated with Amels on a yacht project. We are very impressed by the know-how and professionalism that the Amels custom yachts team have displayed during the design development and negotiations and look forward to working together towards making this vessel a unique custom yacht we all can be proud of."
The owner has selected Zuretti Interior Designers to create the interiors.
The Amels Full Custom team is developing the naval architecture and engineering.
Amels operates the largest superyacht facility in the Netherlands, with modern, climate-controlled production facilities including three drydocks up to 215 metres in length. Amels has delivered approximately 60 yachts including iconic yachts like 83m Here Comes The Sun, the largest Amels yacht by length to date, and 73m Ilona.
