Hull eight of the Amels 242 features an Empress Blue hull colour


Imperial has sold a new Amels 242, which marks the 13th collaboration between the brokerage house and the Dutch shipyard. When delivered in 2024, the 74m Limited Editions superyacht will be the eighth hull of the model designed by Tim Heywood with naval architecture by Damen Yachting.


Imperial is acting as owner’s representative and will supervise the construction period until the completion of the build, which will include custom features for the repeat Amels client and an interior by Winch Design.


The exterior colour scheme will include an Empress Blue hull, Snow White superstructure and an Anthracite Grey mast, while the stern will be customised to a flatter, cleaner design and include integrated hydraulic swim stairs.


Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial, said: “Amels 242 is our latest ground-breaking project to accompany our successful collaboration between Imperial and Amels. After being partners for over a decade, and 13 projects later, this current construction epitomises the high standards which Amels are proud to represent under the construction supervision of Imperial.


“Further, by acting as the owner’s representative and project manager for this new construction, Imperial works diligently to ensure that this project is delivered seamlessly, and in accordance with Imperial’s continued drive for ground-breaking projects and sustainable excellence in the yacht industry.”


Rob Luijendijk, Damen Yachting’s Sales Director, added: “We are delighted to have sold this latest Amels 242. This design has captured the imagination of many clients and this one, in particular, is a great example of the Limited Editions concept.


“The client will receive delivery of their brand-new 74m yacht in just 2½ years and has still been able to customise many aspects to create a yacht that suits their specific requirements. The entire team at Damen Yachting is looking forward to working with Imperial during the build of this unique project and delivering this Amels 242 to her owner in 2024.”
