Amels has announced the completion of the technical launch of the first Amels 220 – Project Waka – which took place inside one of it covered drydocks last week. The 67.1m projects will now complete outfitting before its delivery in summer this year.

The Amels project team celebrated the launch together with the owner’s team, including Captain Paul Bickley and Fraser Yachts’ Antoine Larricq, who also represented the owner during the build.

The Amels 220 is a timeless design by Tim Heywood, capturing the British designer’s much-loved exterior signature. The design draws on the lineage of the original Amels 212 yachts delivered to date, but stands out with newly elongated decks plus a large 65sqm swim platform and beach club. Winch Design has created the custom interior design.

At the core of the design and technical platform is performance and comfort, with a highly fuel efficient full displacement hull and energy recovery system on board.

Amels currently has seven yachts in build, two of which are due to be delivered this year. With an average LOA of 62.3m delivered last year, according to Superyacht Intelligence, Amels' average delivered LOA year-on-year shows that its fleet is gradually increasing in size. More information on the latest new build trends can be found in The Superyacht New Build Report.
