Just before day one of FLIBS begins, Amels has confirmed that its new 67.1m superyacht, currently under construction at the Dutch facility, has been sold by Fraser Yachts. The Amels 212 is another model from the Limited Editions range, designed by Tim Heywood. This yacht, however, has been customised further to facilitate an extended main deck and enlarged beach club, with interior design by Winch Design.
This is the second time Fraser Yachts has sold an Amels new construction project and the third time Fraser has managed an Amels new build in the last 13 months. Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco, who represented the owner in the purchase of the project, highlights that the owner is a long-standing repeat client of Fraser Yachts. The 67m is also the second Amels project that Larricq has sold in just over a year.
“I’m extremely proud to have signed another new construction project with Amels,” says Larricq, who continues, “The shipyard has proven its ability to adapt the 65m Limited Edition to the client’s wishes, with a shorter building time as well as an extended transom, which accommodates a beach club and spa area.”
The in-house project management team at Fraser Yachts will undertake the project management of the yacht, having worked closely with the owner and shipyard when finalising the yacht’s design.
“This sale highlights the enduring value and top quality of the Amels Limited Editions range,” says Amels Sales Manager Rose Damen. “With the proven naval architecture and engineering already in place, we can start cutting steel immediately and she’ll be delivered in under three years.”
There are currently seven yachts under construction at the Amels facility in Vlissingen, including the new 212, in addition to two further yachts that have been launched and are awaiting delivery, both of which have been designed by Tim Heywood.
