Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS is proud to announce the sale of a new 55-meter AMELS 180 (180 ft) from the AMELS Limited Editions range. With delivery of the yacht in spring 2019, the owner will take full advantage of the Limited Editions approach to combine individual design choices with fast delivery in less than a year.

The owner, represented by Mark Woodmansey of Burgess, created the bespoke colour scheme in collaboration with exterior designer Tim Heywood and the AMELS Design team, while the customized interiors are by designer Laura Sessa.

“I am delighted with this milestone sale of the latest AMELS 180,” Mark says. “Following the sale of EJI earlier in the year, this latest purchase cements the successful, long running partnership between Burgess and AMELS. We look forward to delivering this new yacht to her owner and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rose and her team for their assistance.”

Favorite features of the AMELS 180 include the impressive 180 square-meter Sun Deck (1,938 sq ft), the Main Deck Owners Suite with folding balcony, plus a wide-body Bridge Deck Sky Lounge.

The AMELS 180 has proven full displacement naval architecture with a large volume (671 Gross Tonnage), offering strong and stable seakeeping behaviour for excellent comfort and global range. The logical layout and properly-sized storage for equipment is a direct result of the larger volume, ensuring no compromise for journeys requiring extended periods of full luxury service at sea.

“It’s been a pleasure working with the owner’s team to customise this yacht,” comments AMELS Commercial Director Rose Damen, “and the entire AMELS team is working hard to achieve another on-time and on-budget Limited Editions delivery next year. We’re very proud of the ongoing success of the AMELS 180, which has been the world’s best-selling 55-metre yacht design since 2007.”

The next available AMELS 180 is now under construction for delivery in summer 2020.
