Damen Shipyards: Amels to Build Second in LIMITED EDITIONS Series
64.7-Meter AMELS 212 designed by Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch. Amels, acknowledged masters of the art of superyacht building, announces plans to begin construction of the second in its LIMITED EDITIONS series, the 64,7-meter AMELS 212. This decision follows the stunning success of the AMELS 171, introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2005. At the time, Amels had elected to begin building two hulls, and in a few months sold both. Client inquiries then put Amels in the strong position of beginning construction of the third and fourth, one of which is also sold. Amels is now preparing to build the fifth and sixth.
The AMELS 212, like the AMELS 171, is designed by Tim Heywood. He responded to the assignment with a boldly shaped superyacht, similar to the AMELS 171, in a five-deck configuration with character that Heywood describes as ‘strong, feminine, athletic and sleek’. Clearly, both the AMELS 171 and AMELS 212 were drawn by the same steady hand and fertile imagination.
