Sale of first Limited Edition Amels 242

Amels has sold its first Limited Edition Amels 242. She is due for delivery in 2016 and construction of the 74m (242ft) Tim Heywood design is already well underway. Andrew Winch has been commissioned to style the interior, which will include two generously sized VIP cabins situated on main deck, each of which is equipped with a bedroom, office, guest suite and dressing room.

Part of Heywood's secret in creating such a streamlined exterior for the 242 is her very long aft deck, which features a large swimming pool, 6.5m by 3.5m. The yacht will be fitted with a dedicated owner's deck with 240 sqm of space. Some of the features include a forward looking owner's suite, his and her bathrooms and an owner's office. Aft is the owne's lounge, with large sliding windows capable of making the lounge an inside or outside area.

Located centrally on lower deck is a large, full-beam spa, with sauna, steam room, gym and fold down beach platform, ideal for taking a dive into the sea from the side of the yacht. The watersports garage is large enough to hold two 9.5m tenders, jet skis and other assorted water toys.

Amels chief executive Rob Luijendijk commented: "We are really pleased to have sold the first Amels 242, and it is great to be working once again with Moran Yacht & Ship on this exciting project. We have created the perfect balance between full custom and semi-custom construction, proven by the fact that we now have all five models in the Limited Editions range in build, from the Amels 180 up to the Amels 272. Tim Heywood's avant-garde design for the Amels 199 really turned heads at the Monaco Yacht Show, and this model is now widely acknowledged to be setting a new benchmark for the 60m luxury sector."
