Today we proudly delivered the third Amels 60 superyacht, named KHALIDAH. The 60-metre Amels Limited Editions, now handed over to her Owner, has opted to take up port with us at the Amels Headquarters in Vlissingen City until final departure. The onward itinerary of the Amels 60 KHALIDAH is yet to be confirmed by the Owner.
KHALIDAH features custom interiors by Winch Design that emulate a home on the water for her Owner with light materials, woods, scattered pops of colour, artistic elements and high-tech lighting and entertainment solutions.
For the final stages of the build and the operational management of KHALIDAH moving forward, the Owner has appointed Deeside Maritime. “I have worked on a number of Amels new builds over the years and have great experience of working with the Damen Yachting team and their fantastic technical build platform and operational performance. It was this experience and knowledge that the Owner and family office were looking for when appointing someone to not only oversee the crucial final stages of the build but to take the operational management of the yacht forward beyond delivery,” says Nick Flashman, Director & Founder Deeside Maritime and Owner’s Representative. “Today’s delivery represents one of the more significant milestones as, together with the yard and the Owner’s team, we mark the move from build towards onboard enjoyment.”
The Amels 60 is focused on offering the ultimate onboard experience with the freedom it offers in areas such as the Sun Deck, Swim Platform and the Owner’s Suite with its folding balcony, en-suite and dressing room. Additionally, the yacht features space for a 9-metre tender on the foredeck. With six staterooms in total, the Amels 60 can accommodate up to 12 guests overnight with additional space for 12 crew, plus the Captain.
“This proven hybrid system currently offers the best solution to reduce harmful emissions, reduce noise and vibrations while benefiting from lower fuel and maintenance costs. It also allows you to cruise up to a certain speed without using the main engines, solely cruising on the generators,” says Joppe Osté, Project Manager at Damen Yachting.
