The hull of the largest Amels yacht to date has hit the water at the Damen hull building facilities in Romania. Launched sideways into the water, the 78-metre Full Custom yacht will be transported to the Netherlands for outfitting, which is due to be completed during 2021 at the Amels yard in Vlissingen.

Zuretti Interior Design was selected by the owner to stylise the interiors.

It has been a pleasure to represent the owner throughout this prestigious build process and we look forward to her completion and delivery in 2021.”

The layout with the big pool on the upper deck with the boats below either side, but they are all hidden so you don’t see it. And of course the balconies with the direct access from the cabins out which you can spot very easily and it’s actually looking pretty amazing. A lot of people don’t notice this because when you look at the profile view they’re not very visible, but when you draw the boat in 3D you can see these balconies coming out.”
