The Amels 272 is steadily taking shape in The Netherlands, following her hull arrival in January.  Her superstructure is firmly in place, and delivery is on schedule for late 2016.

Amels-272-Yacht-Agents-Seal-SuperyachtsThe Amels 272 is the “Grand Dame,” in the yard’s words, of its Limited Editions offerings. To put her size into perspective, she’s the first to put Amels’ new dry dock to use.

Seen in the photos here, it measures 656 feet long (200 meters long).
