The Amels 199 Is Born


The first Amels 199 "Event" has been christened at the Amels yard in Vlissingen Holland. In a few weeks from now she will make her maiden voyage up to the cool Norwegian waters to explore the magnificent fjords.

During the ceremony Event's owner thanked the Amels workforce who were there to enjoy the moment after their many months of dedication and hard work. The honour of christening the yacht was given to Laura Sessa, the designer who worked closely with the owner in creating an interior that complements the bold exterior line designed by Tim Heywood.

For Tim Heywood, seeing Event in all her glory was a special moment. "I'm so pleased that Amels and the owner of Event shared my passion for such a thrilling looking design as the Amels 199," said the British designer. "On paper and in concept form the scimitar bow and reverse tumblehome features of the design looked very exciting, and now to see the reality is a dream come true."

After her maiden voyage to Norway she will make her way back down to the Med where she will be available for charter before she attends the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
