Amels has sold its second 74-metre Limited Editions 242. The buyer was represented by Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco.

The 242 is the third superyacht over 70 metres currently in build at Amels, and will feature an interior by Andrew Winch Designs. The elegant lines are by Tim Heywood. Among the elements on board is an elongated aft deck creating superior outdoor luxury spaces.

“This yacht will have a very different character to the first  242,” says Amels managing director Rob Luijendijk. “This is precisely why our Limited Editions concept has worked so well. The customisation, the very high level of quality and the proven platform, combined with faster delivery, creates a very attractive proposition.”

Antoine Larricq will also represent the owner during the build. “We initially visited the Amels 212 Z during the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show. Thereafter we explored all possibilities of potential projects under construction. This took us worldwide, travelling as far as the Antipodes and China, and finally extended to the study of a full custom solution. With the client’s brief uppermost, it became clear that the Amels shipyard ticked all the boxes. Some examples of this are the build quality, reputation and design pedigree, the spa area, helicopter capability, the owner’s deck layout, and delivery date within 18 months. The owner’s team, Fraser Yachts Management and Amels have enjoyed a fruitful collaboration leading to the recent signature of this build contract,” he says.

Construction is well under way and delivery is scheduled for early 2016. Next year, Amels will also deliver the first 272, the largest in the Limited Editions range at 83 metres.
