Amels 60 hull three begins sea trials
Currently for sale at Damen Yachting, the third Amels 60 by Espen Øino is scheduled to be ready in August.
Following sisterships Come Together and the customised Entourage, the latest Amels 60 began sea trials in the North Sea last week. For sale with parent company Damen Yachting, the 60m superyacht is expected to be ready in August and presents “a very appealing opportunity for buyers in the new-build market” and “will let her owner enjoy the height of the summer season”.
The 197-footer features a distinctive exterior design by Espen Øino with signature geometric windows, and contemporary interiors by Winch Design. Suited to both private and charter use, the 830GT Amels 60 offers accommodation for up to 12 guests and 13 crew.
The yacht includes a 162sqm sun deck, one of the largest among yachts of this size. This area contains a Jacuzzi with a swim-jet function for up to six guests, a shaded dining table and a bar, a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, a teppanyaki grill and a cinematic set-up for film nights. The touch-and-go helipad can also be used as a sunbathing spot or a unique gym area.
On the main deck, the owner’s suite benefits from large windows, a 7sqm balcony, a beam-to-beam bathroom and a walk-in closet forward.
The yacht has four en-suite guest cabins on the guest deck and a beach club, which features access to the swim platform, a sauna, steam shower, seating and storage for water toys. Two luxury tenders can be stowed out of sight on the foredeck due to a clever storage solution.
The Amels 60 is fitted with the most advanced hybrid propulsion system supplied by Amels so far, which reduces fuel consumption, exhaust emissions, vibration and noise, while also protecting the lifespan of the generators and the main engines.
Joppe Osté, Project Manager at Damen Yachting, said: “This proven hybrid system currently offers the best solution to reduce harmful emissions, reduce noise and vibrations, while benefiting from lower fuel and maintenance costs. It also allows you to cruise up to a certain speed without using the main engines, solely cruising on the generators.”
