Amels in the Netherlands has launched its first Amels 200, which is an evolution of the builder’s Limited Editions Amels 188.
Hull No. 1 of the Amels 200 has a length overall of 197 feet. Interiors are by Reymond Langton Design, with exteriors by Tim Heywood. Naval architecture is by Damen Yachting.
“There are many features of this design that bring a smile to my face,” Heywood stated in a press release. “The many flying buttresses, the complex winding surfaces, the upturned deck ends, the integrated life rafts, the sculptural mast and the complex stern—all form a harmonious design that sits securely in her environment, of which I am extremely proud. I believe her delicate, fluid lines will prove to be timeless, and she will still look as attractive in 50 years’ time, as she does now.”
Gross tonnage on the Amels 200 is 1,015. Power is hybrid-electric. Features include an elevator that services four decks, an air-conditioned gymnasium on the sundeck, and full-height windows in the owners’ stateroom. Accommodations are for 12 guests and 13 crew.
Burgess represented the owner in purchasing the yacht, which is expected to be delivered later this year.
What else is new at Amels and Damen Yachting? They just announced the sale of the 180-foot yacht support vessel Gene Chaser, which has a research laboratory on board. Gene Chaser will be used alongside the 180-foot Amels Gene Machine.
