Imperial sells Amels 242
Imperial has sold the seventh hull of the Amels 242 series, marking the 10th collaboration between the Monaco-based brokerage and the Dutch superyacht builder.
Imperial has announced the sale of an in-build Amels 242, which is scheduled for a 2022 delivery and is currently being outfitted at the Amels and Damen Yachting shipyard in the Netherlands.
Named Amels 24207, the megayacht is the seventh hull of the Amels 242 Limited Editions model and marks the 10th collaboration between the Dutch builder and the Monaco-based brokerage since 2008.
The 242ft (74m) vessel will include a wide array of custom features specified by the owner, represented by Imperial during the whole building stage. Brit Tim Heywood designed her modern exterior lines while UK-based Winch Design will create a unique interior.
Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial, said: “Project Amels 24207 is the second superyacht signed by Amels and Damen Yachting during this pandemic period. This great achievement is the result of hard work, dedication and attention to all details with our esteemed partners at Amels, Damen Yachting, Tim Heywood and Winch Design studios. We are excited to give life to our 10th collaboration with our very esteemed Dutch partners.”
The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts offers a proven technical platform with custom interiors and 40 hulls of varying sizes have been delivered since 2005. The innovative business model of upfront investment in engineering and construction balances full custom and semi-custom, and reduces delivery time from several years to as little as a few months.
Rose Damen, Managing Director of Damen Yachting, said: “We are very proud of our Amels quality and the reputation that our Limited Editions yachts have earned. Our latest Amels 242 will have a very experienced project team to complete her. We are looking forward to work closely with Imperial’s new-build team and her crew to ensure she is exactly as the owner imagined when she departs the yard next year.”
Amels – Damen Yachting will build the largest superyacht constructed in the Netherlands, with Imperial acting as the owner’s representative and build supervisor for the 120m project.
