The superyacht has now been delivered to her new owners.
After three days of successful sea trials in the North Sea, the 45-metre semi-displacement Amore Mio has been delivered to her new owners.
Powered by twin MTU 16V diesel engines, Amore Mio reached a top speed of 30 knots, meeting all her contractual speed requirements.
The first yacht to be launched this year by the Dutch yard, the all-aluminium superyacht has distinctive exterior lines by Omega Architects and an interior by Christiano Gatto.
Tripp Hock, captain of Amore Mio, says: “Heesen added a third day to their standard sea trial program, which they are calling the Captain’s Day. This was a welcome addition and allowed me free scope for requesting all kinds of further testing like crash stops, dead ship operations and single engine maneuvering. As the first Heesen sea trialed at ‘light load’, I was eager to see in particular how the gyro stabilisers would function on such a buoyant ship in the North Sea. To my relief, all the coffee cups stayed on the tables.”
Amore Mio is the largest sports yacht to be built in the Netherlands, and has a range of 2,750 nautical miles at 12 knots.
