Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS is very pleased to announce the sale of the second 74-metre (242 feet) AMELS 242 superyacht in its Limited Editions range. The project is the third superyacht over 70 metres currently underway at AMELS. Announced shortly before the Monaco Yacht Show, the sale strongly celebrates the value, quality and sophistication that AMELS offers for very large yachts.
To complement the AMELS 242’s exceptionally sleek and elegant Tim Heywood exterior lines, the experienced Owner has selected Andrew Winch Designs to create a very personal vision for the luxury interiors.
“This yacht will have a very different character to the first AMELS 242,” comments AMELS Managing Director Rob Luijendijk. “This is precisely why our Limited Editions concept has worked so well. The customisation, the very high level of quality and the proven platform, combined with faster delivery, creates a very attractive proposition.”
The Owner was introduced to AMELS by Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts, who will also represent the Owner during the build. The AMELS 242 features an elongated aft deck, creating superior outdoor luxury spaces and a light and airy volume at 1,787 gross tonnes.
Construction of the first AMELS 242 is well underway and scheduled for on-time delivery in early 2016. Next year AMELS will also deliver the first AMELS 272, the largest in the Limited Editions range at 83 metres.
The yard’s expertise in large yachts continues with AMELS Full Custom, offering true one-off creations in the 80 to 110-metre segment. Plus, AMELS Refit recently completed extensive works on 96.80-metre VAVA II, arguably the largest superyacht ever in the Netherlands for refit.
