AMELS 180 – 55 metre Superyacht finds a new buyer

AMELS confirms sale of new 55-metre Limited Editions superyacht

AMELS has finalised the sale of a new 55-metre AMELS 180, highlighting the enduring appeal of the highly successful Limited Editions approach. The timeless lines of Tim Heywood’s exterior design combine with proven pedigree and the benefits of faster delivery time, the absolute highest AMELS quality and the Owner’s choice of interior designer.

The new AMELS 180 will be delivered to her Owner in less than 2 years in Spring 2017. Gary Wright and Will Christie of Y.CO represented the buyer.  The Owner’s choice of interior designer has not been revealed.

Highlights of the AMELS 180 design include the Owner’s suite with folding balcony and the main saloon’s port and starboard folding bulwarks, amplifying the inside-out feeling on board. At 25 metres long and covering 155 square metres, the vast top deck can make a very strong claim to being the largest Sun Deck you’ll find on any 55-metre yacht.

“The continuing success of the AMELS 180 and the whole 55 to 83-metre Limited Editions range has really continued unabated,” stated Managing Director Rob Luijendijk. “We’re seeing strong interest in our offer from the Middle East, Latin America and renewed interest from Russia. Exchange rates have played a role with our clients in the US, but we believe the key to our success is our commitment to continuously improve, listen to Owner feedback and strive for perfection.”
