Yesterday the 62.5-metre AMELS 206 rolled out into brilliant sunshine, the first spring launch of the year for Dutch yacht builder AMELS and DAMEN. The yacht, from the AMELS Limited Editions range, will be one of six new build deliveries to their owners before the summer season.
“It’s a wonderful build milestone to see her outside,” Build Captain Fraser Gow comments. “Everyone’s done an exceptional job, particularly on the finish which you can really appreciate now she’s outside. We’re all very excited to commence sea trials and commissioning of all her systems ahead of delivery.”
The owner has specified an elegant colour scheme in collaboration with exterior designer Tim Heywood and the AMELS design team. The light grey hull and white superstructure highlight the long lines from the Scimitar bow to the Swim Platform. The unique interiors are by Laura Sessa, working in collaboration with AMELS interior specialists.
The AMELS 206 features two VIP suites on Bridge Deck, signature round windows in the Owner’s Suite and forward enclosed store for two tenders up to 8 metres and three jetskis. The Sun Deck features a large entertaining area with jacuzzi and Teppanyaki grill. The yacht has a volume of 1,161 Gross Tonnage.
The launch took place using the RoFlo method. This year the yacht builder will deliver three new build AMELS yachts including the AMELS 206, as well as a number of refit projects, two DAMEN SeaXplorers and a DAMEN Yacht Support vessel.
