Amels 242

Exterior design by Tim Heywood

Interior design by Winch Design

Farther beyond

The name PLVS VLTRA, meaning ‘farther beyond’ in Latin, crystallises the owner’s uncompromising quest for perfection. At the ancient Pillars of Hercules near the Straits of Gibraltar, it is said that nec plus ultra (‘nothing farther beyond’) marked the gates of the known world. For those with exceptional daring, ambition and talent, voyaging beyond the gates – plus ultra – became a motto for unsurpassed achievement at the very highest level. PLVS VLTRA is just such an achievement.
