This week in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, the fourth Amels 60 superyacht touched water for the first time. The new 60-metre Amels 60 is on track to be delivered to her Owner this autumn.
The fourth Amels 60 features an exterior Design by Espen Øino, naval architecture by Damen Yachting and a custom interior by two collaborating studios: Studio Indigo and Pure Living.
Since being introduced in 2019, the popular Amels 60 series continues to grow and currently includes an impressive six units. While the sisterships share similar features and a proven platform, each has her own spirit and individuality.
The semi-custom design offers Owners the opportunity to customise their yacht’s interiors and various elements of the exterior. For the Owner of the fourth Amels 60, the windows were transformed into long lines of glazing which cover the floor-to-ceiling height of 1.9 metres in the Main Saloon.
“We’ve had a very strong reception to this new Amels design – largely because an Owner can step into a new build, make some customisations and yet still benefit from a two-year delivery time,” says Jan van Hogerwou, Damen Yachting’s Commercial Executive USA.
The Amels 60 offers six staterooms for up to 12 guests, including a full-beam Owner’s Suite on the Main Deck Forward. Designed as a private retreat, the Suite features a folding balcony terrace and an adjoining cabin that can be used as a VIP, children’s suite, office, or gym. The remaining four guest suites can be found on the Lower Deck.
Other highlights include a Beach Club sauna, a Jacuzzi on the Sundeck, and a touch-and-go helipad.
To lower her impact on the environment, the Amels 60 features IMO Tier III compliant hybrid power and propulsion technology, cutting-edge equipment, superior seakeeping abilities and a transatlantic range of 4,500 miles. The Amels 60 is also able to store a tender of up to 9 metres on the foredeck – a notable feat for a yacht of this size.
