Newly extended Here comes the Sun cruising after Amels refit
Here Comes The Sun recently stopped in London following an extensive refit at the Damen shipyard in Vlissingen that included extending its length to 89m.
The 89m Here comes the Sun in London
Here comes the Sun, Amels’ biggest build to date, recently stopped in London as she embarked on a global itinerary following an extensive refit at the Damen Yachting shipyard in Vlissingen City in the Netherlands. The yacht’s 16-month refit included extending its overall length from 83m to 89m, increasing its volume from 2,827GT to 2,977GT and a full respray with colour change.
The yacht will embark on a global itinerary
Featuring exterior design by Tim Heywood and an interior by Winch Design, the superyacht was originally delivered in 2017 and returned to Damen Yachting last year under a new owner, who appointed Azure Yacht Design – the yard’s original partner for the naval architecture – to re-pen the iconic Amels build.
The 16-month refit included an extension from 83m to 89m
Three decks were extended aft: the sun deck to include a helicopter landing area, the bridge deck to allow for two VIP suites with exterior balconies, and the main deck to provide a larger beach club, spa facilities and a 7m swimming pool. Further modifications included alterations to several outdoor and interior areas, including the layout of the owner’s zone and tender garage.
Here comes the Sun leaves the Damen yard in Vlissingen
Sander Peeters, Damen Yachting Project Manager, said: “The refit of Here comes the Sun was a very large scale and complex project. We are all very proud to have delivered on time and to such a high quality. Seeing her leave the yard was a very emotional moment and we look forward to following her next chapter and adventures with her owner.”
Damen Yachting has confirmed the sale of a new Amels 60 scheduled for delivery in 2024.
