Fraser Yachts has announced the sale of a 67m new build project from Amels. Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco represented the buyer who is a long-standing repeat client of Fraser Yachts.

This is the second project sold by the Monaco firm from the Dutch shipyard and the third Amels yacht signed for project management by Fraser Yachts in the last 13 months.

This is the 10th new build project sold in 10 years by Antoine Larricq and his second Amels project sold in 13 months.

The Amels 212 Limited Editions (220ft) is due for delivery in 2019. She will be the fourth Amels 212 built.

This version of the Amels 212 Limited Editions is customised with an extended main deck aft and a large beach club.

Her exterior are work of Tim Heywood while Andrew Winch has been commissioned to create the interior concept.

Commenting on the sale, Antoine Larricq says: “I am extremely proud to have signed another new construction project with Amels. The shipyard has proven its ability to adapt the 65m Limited Editions to the client’s wishes, with a shorter building time and an extended transom accommodating a beach club with spa area.

In-house project management

VF Yachts, the in-house project management division of Fraser Yachts, will oversee the construction of the vessel.

The team has been working closely with the owner and the shipyard to finalise the design, based on the owner’s experience from his previous yachts.

“This sale highlights the enduring value and top quality of Amels Limited Editions yachts,” says Amels sales manager Rose Damen. “With the proven naval architecture and engineering already in place, we can start steel-cutting straight away and she will be delivered in less than three years.”

Fraser Yachts has a long standing history of collaboration with Amels including the construction of 46m Maupiti in 1993, the 50m Kermit in 2001, the 52m Lady In Blue in 2004 (now Nita K Ii after being sold for the second time by Fraser Yachts), and the 65m Imagine in 2011 (now Infinite Shades after being sold by Fraser Yachts earlier this year).

“I would like to thank our client and his captain for an enjoyable long term collaboration. I look forward to a continuing positive and constructive relationship with the Amels team,” Larricq concludes.
