World’s first quad-pod superyacht launched at Amer

Written by Charl van Rooy

The Italian yacht builder Permare has launched its flagship yacht last week. The new 33.5-metre Amer 110 is built as a custom project for a three-time repeat client.

The Amer 110 will go down in the history pages as the first superyacht to be fitted with four IPS pods as her main propulsion. Two groups of counter-rotating props will together provide a top speed of just under 30 knots with the excellent manoeuvrability one comes to expect from these machines.

The shipyard reports that it has applied a new anti-foul film to the hull, something that has only been utilised in the naval field up till now. The benefits of this particular application is only required to be replaced every four years, reducing maintenance costs and time.

The Amer 110 will be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival taking place next month.
