Dynamic perfection

Isn’t this the perfect size yacht? So large that you have your own dedicated Owners Deck, magnificent spaces and grand lobbies, but still able to reach the most charming ports and romantic small bays. You’ll not only stand out as the largest yacht there, but also as the yacht with the absolute top Amels quality and finish. The Amels 242 is exceptionally manoeuvrable, comfortable and quiet. Our naval architecture has already been proven in global voyages covering thousands of miles.

Exterior Design

Renowned designer Tim Heywood is the master behind the Amels 242’s streamlined exterior lines. His timeless signature is captured in her well-balanced proportions and slim volume, accentuated by attractive details like the long curve of her bridge wing stations.

“The Amels 242 is a gracious beauty, but she is also athletic and dynamic with very long decks and long flowing lines. The strong, feminine curves are there. She looks strong, she’s built to travel the oceans and you can see that. I’m so pleased with this design. I do believe the end result is beautiful and timeless.”
– Tim Heywood, Exterior Designer
