AMELS delivers stunning 60-metre head turner MADAME KATE

Joining the yacht just days after delivery, MADAME KATE’s experienced Owner is spending the entire summer cruising the Mediterranean. The 60-metre motor yacht will then debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. Built by Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS, the Tim Heywood-designed yacht definitely stands out from the crowd with striking exterior lines, a unique pearl effect paintwork that is sure to turns heads in sunlight, and at night elaborate lighting above and below the waterline.

Headed by Owner Representative Benoit Faure from Yachting Concept and Captain Daniel Sola, the Owner’s team and crew worked extremely hard together with the AMELS project team to complete MADAME KATE with the absolute highest AMELS quality. Since departing Vlissingen in May – right on schedule as promised – the AMELS 199 Limited Editions yacht completed her maiden voyage and is now cruising the Balearics.

“The Owner is absolutely delighted with MADAME KATE,” Faure noted. “Of course, the TIm Heywood design is very eye-catching and generates a lot of attention. But the Owner has also remarked on the level of quality on board, which is exactly the giant leap up that he wanted. For example, noise and vibrations are very low. In fact, it’s better described as an absence of noise and vibrations.”

MADAME KATE boasts magnificent outdoor spaces, Laura Sessa-designed Bridge Deck VIP suites, and Lower Deck guest cabins that connect directly to the spacious Beach Club, sauna, Turkish steam bath and swimming platform. All this, plus a touch-and-go helipad and an 8-metre limo-tender in the foreship garage.

The story of MADAME KATE began in early 2013, when the Owner asked Faure to propose a first class shipyard that could quickly deliver a very high quality yacht. The Limited Editions yacht offered what he was looking for, and after visiting AMELS in Vlissingen, the Owner was convinced. However, he had a long list of modifications to the layout and design of the 60-metre AMELS 199 concept, including tailoring outside areas and relocating the galley from the lower deck to the main deck.

Up close, MADAME KATE’s unique pearl effect finish creates a brilliant effect in sunlight, but also sparkles with elegance at night, thanks to an elaborate lighting system. According to Faure, the Owner wanted the boat to be in the spotlight, like a star at the Cannes film festival, thanks to the sophisticated lighting – above and below the waterline – with the ability to change colours.

“The lighting in general was part of the quest for the boat. And on top of that, the paint finish of the boat became even more important. When you illuminate your boat at night, if it has a special colour, it’s even more beautiful.”
