The 89-metre Amels superyacht Here Comes the Sun has just completed a year long refit at the Amels and Damen Yachting shipyard in the Netherlands. The yacht, which is the largest Amels superyacht delivered to date, has had a full colour change, modifying her sand coloured hull to a glossy dark blue, as well as a number of structural adaptations.

The bridge deck has also been extended to aft, where two VIP suites and balconies have been added. In total, the refit has extended the length of the yacht from 83-metres to 89-metres and the aft extension has made space for a larger beach club, spa facilities and a 7-metre swimming pool.
The owner and captain have been very involved with the process, working closely with the shipyard who together appointed Azure Yacht Design to pen the extension and redesign. Michel Coens of Damen Yachting sales commented, “Welcoming any of the fleet back to the yard is always done with pride but for the superyacht Here Comes the Sun, it runs even deeper. She represents the first step back towards full custom and bigger projects. Many of the same craftsmen and women who were meticulously involved in the original build have been working on her during this refit, remoulding and reshaping her into the new masterpiece she is set to become. Her launch is a very proud moment. Her additional length and brand new colour are stunning and we look forward to the final stages of the refit now coming together for delivery to her owner later this summer.”
Her interior design, original and refitted, has been completed by British design studio, Winch Design. The superyacht Here Comes the Sun will be delivered to her owner later this summer after final outfitting.
