Two months after unveiling its new Amels 60 superyacht, Amels today announced that it has sold the first unit of this all-new Limited Editions collaboration with designer Espen Øino which is expected to be ready for delivery in the spring of 2022. The news comes after the Dutch builder announced last week that it had sold the first 60-metre Amels 200 superyacht.Photo: Amels
“Since we introduced our new Amels 60 design at the end of the summer, we’ve been blown away by the market’s reaction,” says Amels and Damen Managing Director, Rose Damen. “The fast sale of the first yacht is very rewarding for everyone in our design, engineering and project teams who have worked so hard on the Amels 60 during the last few years. We’re very proud of the design and excited about building this new yacht for her owner.”Photo: Amels
The Amels design team invested heavily in the new model’s naval architecture alongside the in-house Damen Research Laboratory - who also pioneered the streamlined full displacement hull. The technological capabilities of the yard have peaked with the Amels 60 and its hybrid-electric propulsion and power system, which includes an energy storage system and a Tier III compliant main engine and generator filters. When in eco-cruising mode, she can reach up to 4,500 nautical miles when travelling at 13 knots.Photo: Amels
Defined by a contemporary exterior with cutting lines, the Amels 60 features an expansive sundeck and multifunctional beach club area. Photo: Amels
With construction already underway on this first unit, the yard will begin building the second Amels 60 soon, reports Amels. The yard is also working on a 78-metre custom superyacht with the same designer which is expected to be delivered to its owner in 2021. Photo: Amels
