Dutch shipyard Amels has presented the new 57.7m Amels 188 (970GT) to the public at Monaco Yacht Show. The new model joins the 55 to 83-metre Limited Editions range, now with six unique designs.
The yard has nearly completed the engineering phase of the Amels 188, which has a preliminary scheduled delivery in Spring 2018.
Managing director Rob Luijendijk says Amels is already handling a number of serious enquiries.
“Our clients have been tremendously excited about this yacht,” he says. “If you look at the 55-metre Amels 180 and the 60-metre Amels 199, they are both unique and very successful designs. The 57.70-metre Amels 188 fits perfectly between these two yachts, bringing something entirely new to a market segment that we have traditionally show leadership in.”
The Amels 188 is the first in the Limited Editions range engineered right from the start with the advanced AMAmelsELS Hybrid Power system.
Based on modelling of trending voyage data, Amels has a uniquely holistic approach to hybrid technology for hotel loads. Together with Amels Heat Recovery to reuse energy already on board, the result is smart efficiency for a smaller ecological footprint and lower Total Cost of Ownership.
The yard invited by Pascale Reymond and Andrew Langton to elaborate on the interiors. The result is a smart layout that maximises guest enjoyment, from open decks with generous outdoor spaces to the lure of the 30 square-metre Beach Club and the Wellness Centre’s gym, sauna and Turkish steam shower.
The full-beam owner’s suite covers almost 80sq m and features a large folding balcony and mid-beam sliding doors for privacy.
This announcement coincides with the recent sell of a Limited Editions Amels 180 by Y.CO, the second sold by the company in recent months. Jonathan Zwaans of Y.CO represented the buyer.
The new 55-metre Amel 180 will feature interiors by Laura Sessa.
