Amels 242

The Amels 242 AVANTI has departed the Damen Yachting Vlissingen City shipyard in the Netherlands.

The departure of AVANTI, built at Damen Yachting under the project name SHADOW, comes just 1 year after the sale of this Amels 242 was announced.  Moran Yacht & Ship represented the Owner for the purchase and completion of this project

“We would like to congratulate the Damen Yachting shipyard, project managers, support staff, andskilled craftsmen and workers at the shipyard for their dedication and support throughout thisproject. We would also like to thank the Owner for the trust they put in our team to complete this incredible project and the Captain and crew for their hard work and tireless effort. It was a pleasure to once again work with the team at Damen Yachting on the construction of AVANTI and we look forward to many more successful deliveries with the yard in the future.” Sean Moran.

AVANTI stems from the successful Amels 242 Limited Editions range. She is the 6th yacht to be delivered from this design and the 1st IMO Tier III compliant Amels 242. Her unmistakable Tim Heywood exterior design has been uniquely finished with an Ice Blue Hull and Matterhorn White superstructure. AVANTI features custom interiors by Winch Design. As with all Amels Limited Editions, AVANTI benefits from the proven naval architecture by Damen Yachting.

As an Amels Limited Editions, AVANTI perfectly captures the essence of the design evolution associated with the successful build platform by incorporating the additions and customisations incorporated into her predecessors.

With a Gross Tonnage of 1,790, AVANTI accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins with 19 crew. The yacht’s garage holds 3 tenders, as well as 2 wave runners and a professional diving equipment set-up.

“We would like to thank the crew and the Owner’s team for their outstanding cooperation during what has been a challenging pandemic build period. It is always a very proud moment for everyone at Damen Yachting when one of our yachts sets sail on their maiden voyage and we wish the Owner and crew of AVANTI all the very best for the exciting adventures which lie ahead.”
– Jan van Hogerwou, Damen Yachting Commercial executive
