Ben Young of Superyacht Management has announced the sale of the first Amels 188 superyacht currently under construction in the Netherlands. The hybrid superyacht is on schedule for launch in 2018.

Designed by Tim Heywood, the Amels 188 follows in the footsteps of the very successful Amels 180 motor yacht. The new 57-metre project encompasses an impressive 970 GT of volume and the ability to complete the yacht with a helipad. Another key feature is the fact that YN18801 is being built according to IMO Tier III regulations; the first of its kind for the Dutch shipyard.

This is our fifth yacht in a little over a decade for this particular client and we are very excited act as buyers broker and to have been appointed as buyers chief representative for the build,” said Ben Young. “Keeping clients happy year on year through our management services can be a tough job so we are delighted to receive such fantastic validation from this client who we have developed such a close working relationship over such a long period.
