FLUSHING – Damen Yachting has booked an order for a 3rd 60m Amels 200. The yard expects to deliver it in early 2024. The Amels 200 is an evolution of the Amels 188 and designed by Tim Heywood.
“This is a yacht that combines original design and high volume with exceptional functionality,” says Damen Yachting Sales Director Rob Luijendijk.
The Amels 200 has much of the naval architecture, large volume (1,015 GT) and hybrid electric power technology of its predecessor. The design benefits from the extra length which, designer Tim Heywood says, “enhances the overall elegance and sophistication of my design, inside and out. The design echoes a cruising swan ruffling her feathers.”
The larger windows make for a lighter interior atmosphere. The exterior features complex, multifaceted shapes and graceful lines. The interior of the Amels 200 is by Winch Design which has worked on many Limited Editions. The Amels 200 is the first in this design series.
Earlier this year, Damen Yachting launched the first two Amels-branded 60m Limited Editions. The four-deck Amels 200 features an elevator, an air-conditioned fitness room on the sun deck, a large aft deck and swimming platform and an owner’s suite with full-height windows.
The yacht can accommodate 12 guests and a dozen crew members.
The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts offers a proven technical platform with custom interiors. The standard hulls are made by the giant Damen Shipyards company that owns Damen Yachting.
Building standard platforms reduces build time, an important factor at a time when clients are in a hurry to take delivery of a superyacht.
“Our innovative business model of upfront investment in engineering and construction,” says Damen Yachting Managing Director Rose Damen. “It reduces delivery time from several years to as little as a few months. That’s the philosophy behind our successful Amels Limited Editions range.”
Damen Yachting has delivered 40 Limited Editions yachts since 2005.
