A new Amels 242 superyacht hull has arrived at the Amels and Damen Yachting shipyard in the Netherlands for outfitting. Sold at the end of 2020 with Imperial representing the Owner, the new 74-metre Limited Editions yacht (242 ft) will be delivered in summer 2022.
Imperial will supervise construction throughout the completion of the build, including a wide range of custom features specified by the Owner. The project is the tenth yacht project to be built in collaboration with Imperial since 2009. Julia Stewart, Imperial Director, states:
“Project Amels 24207 is the second superyacht signed with Amels and Damen Yachting that we have successfully completed all technical and legal details during this pandemic period. This great achievement is the result of hard work, dedication and attention to all details with our esteemed partners at Amels, Damen Yachting, Tim Heywood and Winch Design studios. We are excited to give life to our tenth collaboration with our very esteemed Dutch partners!”.
Damen Yachting Managing Director Rose Damen says: “We’re very proud of our Amels quality and the reputation that our Limited Editions yachts have earned. Our latest Amels 242 will have a very experienced project team to complete her. We’re looking forward to working closely with Imperial’s new build team and her crew to ensure she is exactly as the Owner imagined when she departs the yard next year.”
The Amels 242 is the seventh from the 74-metre design in the Limited Editions range. The Tim Heywood designed yacht from the Dutch builder’s Limited Editions range will be completed with a unique interior by Winch Design.
The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts offers a proven technical platform with custom interiors. The builder has delivered 40 Limited Editions yachts since 2005. The innovative business model of upfront investment in engineering and construction, while maximising customisation, represents the perfect balance between full custom and semi-custom – and reduces delivery time from several years to as little as a few months.
