Amels 200-02 Launched in Conjunction with Her Sale
For the designers at Amels and Damen Yachting, innovation comes naturally. The latest design from the Dutch yacht builder is the 60 meter (197 ft) Limited Edition Amels 200. Amels 200-02, the second Amels 200 in the series, featured a collaboration with renowned yacht designer Tim Heywood and Italian design studio, Luxury Projects, for the custom interiors.
Amels 200-02 was just launched at the Dutch builder’s boatyard in the Netherlands, in conjunction with her recent sale. She will undergo the final stages of outfitting ahead of her delivery this summer. The sale was brokered 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,” Smallwood noted. “The new owners look forward to taking delivery of this beautiful yacht this summer.”
Amels 200-02 at a Glance
The Amels 200 shares key components of Damen’s very popular AMELS 188 design, offering the same naval architecture, high volume, hybrid electrical power technology, four-deck elevator and air-conditioned Sun Deck gym. However, the 200 goes above and beyond by offering an elongated design which provides larger aft decks and a more spacious swim platform, plus full-height windows in the owner’s suite. Heywood describes the design changes as “only increasing her elegance and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior, which is illuminate by enlarged windows.”
The Amels 200 is equally as impressive when it comes to its interiors. Luxury Projects was commissioned by Damens to work on the concept interiors for the new 200 line, and the team has worked closely together to bring the vision to life. Laura Pomponi, CEO and founder of Luxury Projects, notes, “It’s been four exciting years and a true pleasure working with the Amels and Damen Yachting team. Their professionalism, perfection and dedication to the product is simply amazing.” With owners preparing to take the helm of Amels 200-02 later this year, the finishing customization of the interiors will be completed by Luxury Projects to owner specifications.
Amens and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar summed up the overall project. “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 has contributed to reaching this wonderful milestone and the success of the project,” he noted. “I look forward to seeing the final stages come together and delivering her to her owner later this year.”
