Amels 242 hull seven has emerged from the drydock at the Damen Yachting shipyard in the Netherlands. Features the exterior lines of Tim Heywood and naval architecture by Damen Yachting, the 74m megayacht has entered the final build phase before her delivery “ahead of the summer season” to an owner represented by Imperial.
Equipped with a new IMO Tier III clean emissions power and propulsion package, the 1,790GT build will be delivered within 18 months of her owner’s purchase yet still incorporates customisations. The yacht features custom interiors by Winch Design, accommodation for 12 guests and 19 crew, a dedicated owner’s deck with foredeck jacuzzi, and an increased-capacity helicopter deck.
Imperial represents the owner of Amels 24207
Peter Dijkwel, Project Manager at Damen Yachting, said: “Seeing Amels 24207 head out of the shed, into the daylight and onto the water for the first time is a proud moment for the entire team at Damen Yachting. We are now looking forward to the next phase as we embark upon the final build stages and sea trials ahead of delivery to her owner, ready for a summer of adventures at sea.”
The yacht represents Imperial’s 10th collaboration with Amels and Damen Yachting, which has delivered more than 40 Amels Limited Editions yachts since 2005.
The brokerage house has sold a customised Amels 242 superyacht, which will be the Limited Editions model’s eighth hull when delivered in 2024.
