THE NETHERLANDS, Vlissingen. Amels has secured a contact for a new build project, which has begun construction. The 74m Limited Editions 242 will be delivered to her owner in 2016.

The Tim Heywood-designed vessel, which is the ninth active project underway at Amels, will feature an Andrew Winch Designs interior based around a dedicated owner’s deck with 240 square metres of luxury space and a forward-looking owner’s suite, ‘his and hers’ bathrooms, and an owner’s office, alongside two VIP cabins on the main deck. Amels chief executive Rob Luijendijk commented: “We are really pleased to have sold the first Amels 242, and it is great to be working once again with Moran Yacht & Ship on this exciting project.

"We have created the perfect balance between full custom and semi-custom construction, proven by the fact that we now have all five models in the Limited Editions range in build, from the Amels 180 up to the Amels 272. Tim Heywood’s avant-garde design for the Amels 199 really turned heads at the Monaco Yacht Show, and this model is now widely acknowledged to be setting a new benchmark for the 60 metre luxury sector.”

The vessel features an extensive aft deck, housing a 6.5m by 3.5m swimming pool. Situated centrally on the lower deck is a large, full-beam spa, with sauna, steam room, gym and fold-down beach platform, ideal for taking a dive into the sea from the side of the yacht. The watersports garage is large enough to hold two 9.5m tenders, jet skis and assorted other water toys.
