First Amels 200 delivered
The 60m Stella M is set to embark on a full summer season in the Mediterranean, taking in Spain, Greece, France, Italy and more.
Stella M left the Damen Yachting yard in Vlissingen
Stella M has become the first Amels 200 Limited Editions design to be delivered, recently departing the Damen Yachting Vlissingen City shipyard in the Netherlands for a busy summer season cruising the Mediterranean. Her sale was announced at the end of 2019 and she was launched earlier this year.
Captain Spyros Karalis has been at the shipyard for the best part of a year as part of the team overseeing the build and final outfitting on behalf of the owner.
“This summer season is going to be very full-on,” Karalis said. “We have plans to cruise the whole Mediterranean starting from Spain and then up to Greece, with France, Italy and all the other islands in between. I am very much looking forward to getting her out on the ocean and welcoming the owner on board for all the adventures that lie ahead.”
Stella M was the first of two Amels 200 hulls to launch earlier this year
Stella M features custom interiors by Reymond Langton, while her 60m design is an evolution of the Amels 188 designed by Tim Heywood. Like her predecessor, the 1,015GT Amels 200 features hybrid electrical power technology, a four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on the sun deck.
Jorrit Pilaar, Amels and Damen Yachting Sales Manager, said: “We are very proud to hand Stella M over to her owner. It has been a very intense project in challenging times, but her delivery, on-time and on-budget, really comes down to the great collaboration between all parties involved. We wish her owner and crew all the best and look forward to seeing Stella M across the Med this summer.”
The owner was represented by Burgess in the sale. Richard Lambert, Senior Partner – Head of Sales at Burgess Monaco, said: “We would like to congratulate Amels and Damen Yachting on the successful completion of this prestigious yacht during these unprecedented times and we are delighted that our client has taken delivery ahead of the Mediterranean summer season.”
Scheduled for 2024, the third unit of the 60m Limited Editions model will feature an interior by Winch Design.
