Amels announced last week that that a 55m Amels 180 has been sold and will be delivered 16 months from now, in May 2015.

With brokerage house Burgess acting on behalf of the owners the vessel will have a customised interior by designer Christian Liaigre. Burgess’ Technical Services will also represent the owners during the build.

“In just 16 months, these owners will be enjoying a very personal yacht, clearly tailored to their own strong appreciation of artistry and refined lifestyle,” said Amels CEO Rob Luijendijk. “Across the industry we see delivery time as increasingly pivotal in owners’ decision-making, and this new order brokered by Burgess confirms our leadership in this regard. Our trusted Limited Editions platform eliminates technical risk and allows the owners to focus on customising the ‘fun parts’. And they know their Amels-built yacht will be delivered on time. We’re so confident that, even while they’re still reviewing design drawings, we’d encourage them to finalise their 2015 summer plans with this beautiful yacht.”

The owners’ suite will feature a folding balcony, while the main salon has port and starboard folding balconies, amplifying the inside-out feeling on board. Further features include a touch-and-go helideck and an extensive beach club to enhance connection with the ocean, including space for watertoys, a steam room and swimming platform with integrated stairs.
