Avanti, the newest Amels 242, has set sail after leaving the Damen Yachting’s Vlissingen City shipyard in the Netherlands, where she was built under the project name Shadow.

The sixth Amels 242 to be delivered but first to be IMO Tier III compliant, the 74m, 1,790GT superyacht eft the shipyard just a year after her sale was announced, with Moran Yacht & Ship representing the owner for the purchase and completion of the project, which was in build at time of purchase.

Sean Moran said: “We would like to congratulate the Damen Yachting shipyard, project managers, support staff, and skilled craftsmen and workers at the shipyard for their dedication and support throughout this project.

 

“It was a pleasure to once again work with the team at Damen Yachting on the construction of Avanti and we look forward to many more successful deliveries with the yard in the future.”

Based on a Tim Heywood exterior design and naval architecture by Damen Yachting, Avanti has also incorporated the additions and customisations incorporated into her predecessors.

 

She has been finished with an Ice Blue hull and Matterhorn White superstructure, and features custom interiors by Winch Design. Avanti accommodates 12 guests in six cabins and 19 crew, while the garage holds three tenders, two WaveRunners and a professional diving equipment set-up.

“It is always a very proud moment for everyone at Damen Yachting when one of our yachts sets sail on their maiden voyage and we wish the owner and crew of Avanti all the very best for the exciting adventures which lie ahead.”
