The team at Amels and Damen Yachting is pleased to announce the delivery of the Amels 200 STELLA M.
She is the first yacht to be delivered from the Amels 200 Limited Editions design and departed the Damen Yachting Vlissingen City shipyard in the Netherlands for a busy summer season cruising the complete Mediterranean.
Her delivery comes just a year and half after her sale was announced at the end of 2019 and just a matter of months since her launch earlier this year. Captain Spyros Karalis has been located at the shipyard for the best part of a year as part of the team overseeing the build and final outfitting on behalf of the Owner. “This summer season is going to be very full on. We have plans to cruise the whole Mediterranean starting from Spain and then up to Greece, with France, Italy and all the other islands in between. I am very much looking forward to getting her out on the ocean and welcoming the Owner on board for all the adventures that lie ahead.”
Amels and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar, who worked closely with the Owner’s team throughout the sales and build process, explains, “We are very proud to hand STELLA M over to her Owner. It has been a very intense project in challenging times but her delivery, on-time and on-budget, really comes down to the great collaboration between all parties involved. We wish her Owner and crew all the best and look forward to seeing STELLA M all across the Med this summer.”
STELLA M features custom interiors by Reymond Langton. Her 60-metre (197ft) Limited Editions design is an evolution of the Amels 188 designed by Tim Heywood. He explains how the originality and ingenuity of her exterior, allows her to stand out from other yachts of this size. “I believe her delicate, fluid lines will prove to be timeless and she will still look as attractive in 50 years’ time, as she does now.” When asked which features of the design he most likes, he went on to explain, “The many flying buttresses, the complex winding surfaces, the upturned deck ends, the integrated life rafts, the sculptural mast and the complex stern, all form a harmonious design that sits securely in her environment, of which I am extremely proud.”
Like her predecessor, the high volume (1,015 GT) Amels 200 features hybrid electrical power technology, a four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on Sun Deck. Her additional length, however, has allowed for a number of enhancements such as larger aft decks and Swim Platform and full-height windows in the Owners Suite. Tim explains how the elongation benefits the overall design. “The additional length invested into this design, has only increased her elegance and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior, which is illuminated by enlarged windows.”
The Owner was represented by Burgess in the sale. Richard Lambert, Senior Partner – Head of Sales at Burgess Monaco, comments: “We would like to congratulate Amels and Damen Yachting on the successful completion of this prestigious yacht during these unprecedented times and we are delighted that our client has taken delivery ahead of the Mediterranean summer season.”
