Rob Luijendijk, Director Sales
Our journey as a custom builder began with our first large luxury yacht projects half a century ago. We began developing designs with the legendary yacht designer Jon Bannenberg. Those designs blossomed into an era of iconic projects that were among the largest and most sophisticated yachts of their day, including BOADICEA and MONTKAJ.
Our in-house design and engineering teams are second-to-none, with vast experience in collaborating with the most renowned designers in the world as well as classification societies and flag states. You can also leverage the Damen Research Laboratory’s work on shipbuilding innovations for class-leading comfort, low noise and sustainability.
We are one of the few builders in the world that can deliver large complex yachts built to the highest quality. We operate the largest superyacht facilities in the Netherlands, including modern climate-controlled covered building halls and drydocks able to cater to the world’s largest yachts.
Originally signed in 2020, the Amels 120 metres Full Custom is set to take her place as head of the fleet when delivered in 2025. As the largest Amels built to date and currently the largest superyacht in build in the Netherlands, this is a Full Custom that embodies a strong heritage of yacht building excellence, renowned Naval Architecture by Damen Yachting and a stunning, 5-deck exterior design by Espen Øino.
‘This truly custom yacht, with stunning design both inside and out, could only be achieved with the greatest collaboration, having the very best of European design and the highest quality of construction and management. It has been a pleasure to represent the Owner throughout this prestigious build process.’
Andrew Tree, Owner’s Representative
‘There’s been great excitement amongst the Owners Team and Crew in seeing such a complex project come together over the past year. The Yacht's Owners have been fully involved with the restyling of every aspect of the exterior, and her new sleek lines and curves complemented by her bold colour scheme has certainly not disappointed.’
Colin Boyle, Captain
