Nick Mezas Yacht Design’s take on 74m Amels superyacht platform

Written by

Dutch yacht designer Nick Mezas is one of several superyacht designers that the Amels design team challenged to create avant-garde Full Custom concepts based on Amels' platforms.

Amels has a long history of working with both the absolute top names from the superyacht design industry as well as up-and-coming talent. "Since re-introducing our Full Custom offer to the market last year, we've seen a lot of enthusiasm and interest from clients, brokers and designers to work with Amels," says Hans Konings, Amels Design Manager. "These custom concepts are a great starting point in our discussions about fully custom-built yachts."

The starting point was to create a beautiful yacht for long-distance cruising in complete comfort, whether being out on the yacht’s expansive exterior decks or inside,”explains Mezas. Low bulwarks and large glazed vertical surfaces meanthe spacious feeling out on deck is seamlessly carried through to the interior of the yacht. A single arching line connecting the four aft decks is one of the captivating elements of the design.

Sporty grey tones on the main deck leading aft to the transom adds a sense of vigour to the design. Guests are treated to a massive 6.5-metre swimming pool on the 180 square metre main deck aft.

A feature not often found on yachts of this size is a dedicated lounging area on the yacht’s foredeck ahead of the upper deck structure. Here guests can enjoy the sea breeze and take in the views from the comfort of an oversized forward-facing seating area. A large helicopter landing pad is located on bridge deck aft.

Inside, the yacht accommodates 12 guests across six cabins. The owners can relax in their 240 square-metre dedicated owners’ deck that overlooks the foredeck. A further two VIP suites are found on the main deck below, with three guest staterooms on the lower deck enjoying direct access to the wellness centre located in the aft part of the yacht.
