Sale of AMELS 180 thanks to superior delivery time

The sale in February of a new build AMELS 180 superyacht highlights the increasing weight owners place on superior delivery times combined with exceptional quality and design. Advised by the experts at Burgess in Monaco, the owners opted for a 55-metre yacht by Dutch builder AMELS – with interiors customised to the owners’ wishes by designer Christian Liaigre – to be delivered in May 2015. This unmatched delivery time for a superyacht of this calibre exemplifies the unique value of AMELS’ successful LIMITED EDITIONS concept.

“In just 16 months, these owners will be enjoying a very personal yacht, clearly tailored to their own strong appreciation of artistry and refined lifestyle,” commented AMELS CEO Rob Luijendijk. “Across the industry we see delivery time as increasingly pivotal in owners’ decision-making, and this new order brokered by Burgess confirms our leadership in this regard. Our trusted LIMITED EDITIONS platform eliminates technical risk and allows the owners to focus on customising the ‘fun parts’. And they know their AMELS-built yacht will be delivered on time. We’re so confident that, even while they’re still reviewing design drawings, we’d encourage them to finalise their 2015 summer plans with this beautiful yacht.”

The owners’ suite will feature a folding balcony, while the main saloon has port and starboard folding balconies, amplifying the inside-out feeling on board. Further features include a touch-and-go helideck and an extensive beach club to enhance connection with the ocean, including space for watertoys, a steam room and swimming platform with integrated stairs.

The owners selected Paris-based contemporary interior architect Christian Liaigre to create the interiors for the AMELS 180. This is the first time the international design house has worked on an AMELS yacht, complementing the bold and elegant exterior design by award-winning British designer Tim Heywood.

Burgess Technical Services will represent the owners during the build at AMELS. Rupert Nelson, Sales Director for Burgess in Monaco, said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with AMELS again. The LIMITED EDITIONS platform has proved to be a resounding success and we look forward to working with AMELS and their experienced team on this project.”

Owners choose the LIMITED EDITIONS platform for its trusted quality and proven value, as well as the high level of individualised design elements. The AMELS production process is at the heart of modern Dutch high-value yachtbuilding. Compared to a fully custom build, it’s the ‘best of both worlds’, delivering yachts in half the time. Nine LIMITED EDITIONS yachts are currently in the build process, including all five Tim Heywood designs up to the 83m AMELS 272.
