The team at Amels and Damen Yachting has confirmed the sale of the second Amels 200 following her launch at the Damen Yachting yard in the Netherlands – the second RoFlo launch of the year for the Dutch yacht builder. This 60-metre (197ft) Amels Limited Editions, featuring exterior design by Tim Heywood and custom interiors by Luxury Projects, will now undergo the final stages of outfitting ahead of her delivery this summer.
The Owner of Amels 200-02 was represented in the sale by Damon Smallwood of Superyacht Sales and Charter. ‘It has been a pleasure to work with Damen Yachting on behalf of the new owners, the clients purchased her very late into the project and the Damen Team has gone above and beyond to meet their special requests. The new Owners look forward to taking delivery of this beautiful yacht this Summer.’
Tim Heywood Exterior
The Amels 200 design shares the same naval architecture, high volume and hybrid electrical power technology as its predecessor, the Amels 188, as well as the four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on Sun Deck. However, the elongated Amels 200 features larger aft decks and Swim Platform and full-height windows in the Owners Suite, design features which Tim Heywood has previous described as ‘only increasing her elegance and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior, which is illuminated by enlarged windows’.
Luxury Projects Custom Interiors
The custom interiors of Amels 200-02 are the work of the Ancona-based design studio Luxury Projects, who were commissioned for the concept interior design for the Amels 200. Italian designer Laura Pomponi, CEO and founder of the studio, comments on what it means to reach this milestone in the project’s journey and how it is has been to work on an Amels Limited Editions. ‘It’s been 4 exciting years, and a true pleasure working with the Amels and Damen Yachting team, where the professionalism, the perfection, the dedication to the product is simply amazing. Up until the moment of sale, we have been working with Amels as if we have been working for a Client without any difference. The cooperation to reach this point and to achieve the sale has been fantastic and it’s wonderful to see her launched and ready for the final phase before delivery to her new Owner.’
Amels and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar has been involved in the project throughout the sales and build process. ‘We are delighted to have sold Amels 200-02 and also to be able to mark the occasion with her launch. The collaboration with all parties involved have contributed to reaching this wonderful milestone and the success of the project. I look forward to seeing the final stages come together and delivering her to her Owner later this year.’
