Moonstone, the second Amels 200
Amels has delivered the second Amels 200 hull, Moonstone, which features exterior design by Brit Tim Heywood and custom interiors by Italian studio Luxury Projects. The delivery of Moonstone comes just three months after the announcement of her sale and launch.
Captain Nathan Milicich, Moonstone’s skipper, said: “I think the fast delivery time was really the thing that brought us to Amels. That Dutch pedigree is definitely a selling point for the owner and we’ve got a good product at the end of it.
“We’ll head to Athens to pick up the guests and then head to the Aeolian islands, followed by Sicily and finishing up in Sardinia. It’s a nice, long maiden voyage, checking out most of the Mediterranean. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the capabilities and seeing what Moonstone is made of.”
Moonstone was sold in April
Luxury Projects, which was commissioned for the concept interior design for the Amels 200, had a challenging final timeline according to Laura Pomponi, CEO and founder of the Ancona-based studio.
“All the interior loose furniture and some of the décor lights were designed and ordered just three months before delivery to the new owners of Moonstone,” Pomponi said.
“We are very proud of the end result with on-time delivery and an installation of astonishing quality. The beautiful interior is exactly what we dreamed of thanks to the team effort of our dedicated Italian suppliers, artisan workshops, the owner’s team, the shipyard and the interiors contractor.”
Tim Heywood designed the Amels 200
The Amels 200 design shares the same naval architecture, high volume and hybrid electrical power technology as its predecessor, the Amels 188, as well as the four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on the sun deck. The Amels 200’ increased length allows for larger aft decks and swim platform, while the design also features full-height windows in the owner’s suite.
Jorrit Pilaar, Amels and Damen Yachting Sales Manager, said: “We are very proud to hand Moonstone over to her owners. The collaboration with all parties involved has contributed to the success of this project. We wish her owners and crew all the very best for their adventures on board.”
The 60m Stella M is set to embark on a full summer season in the Mediterranean, taking in Spain, Greece, France, Italy and more.
