The latest superyacht from Amels has left the drydock.

These photos show the moment Madame Kate emerges from Dutch shipyard, the latest superyacht in the Amels 199 series. The 60-metre has a striking Tim Heywood design, complete with scimitar bow. Now officially on the water, her commissioning and sea trials are under way, on schedule for a spring delivery.

The Amels 199 traditionally has a functional interior layout places the engineroom and main systems in a central location and the crew and operational areas forward, opening up all the aft spaces for guest use and customisation.

An interior by Laura Sessa is “original and extremely elegant”, says the yard, and includes a couple of large modifications, such as moving the galley from the lower deck to the main deck. Bernard Faure, owner’s representative from Yachting Concept, says: “Both the owner and his wife are fine gourmets. They wanted to put the art of making fine cuisine back into the centre of the boat.

Madame Kate emerges“Looking at the long list of modifications requested by the owner, I was really impressed by the speed of reaction from the Amels project manager and the quality of the solutions. All this comforted the owner that he was building his new yacht at the right place.”
