First sight of an eye-catching lady

Emerging into the light is the first Limited Edition Amels 212, the largest yacht ever produced to the Dutch shipyard’s successful Limited Editions formula.

Managing director Rob Luijendijk said, “The success of the Limited Editions concept has firmly established Amels as the market leader in the premium semi-custom segment. We pioneered the concept with the AMELS 171 and 177, and now we are expanding the range to the Amels 212, and soon the Amels 242.”

Now with the 65.5m yacht just weeks from completion, and set for delivery well ahead of schedule, the sculpted, feminine form of the Amels 212 demonstrates why Tim Heywood is in such high demand. Andrew Winch’s interior complements the Heywood exterior perfectly and she is planned to be displayed by Amels at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show.

At 1503 Gross Tons, this first Amels 212 features two VIP cabins on the bridge deck, each with sliding-window access to a private balcony. A centrally-located glass elevator makes for easy access to all parts of the yacht, including the ‘wet feet’ bar on the sun deck and the large Beach Club located at the stern. There is ample storage for a range of beach toys and also for two 8.5m tenders.

The delivery of this first Amels 212 is one of 10 projects under construction. Due for launch a year after her sistership is the second Amels 212, just visible in the background of the picture, housed at the back of the 140m covered dock at the Amels shipyard.
