Dutch builder Amels has sold its first limited edition Amels 242, a 74m vessel of Tim Heywood design with a 240-square-meter owner’s deck that includes a forward-looking owner’s suite, his and hers bathrooms, and an owner’s office. Aft is the owner’s lounge facing aft with sliding glass doors that make it an inside or outside area.
Due for delivery in 2016, construction is under way. Andrew Winch has been commissioned to style the interior, which will include two VIP cabins on main deck, each equipped with a bedroom, office, guest suite and dressing room.
The watersports garage can hold two 9.5m tenders, jet skis and assorted other toys.
Amels is working with Moran Yacht & Ship on the project.
All five models in the limited editions range are in build, from the Amels 180 to the Amels 272, with nine under construction. Heywood’s avant-garde design for the Amels 199 debuted in Monaco.
The Amels 242 is 1,725 gross tons, carries 14 guests and runs with a crew of 19 and staff of two.
