Hull two will feature a custom interior from US-based studio JQB Design, whose portfolio includes the interior of the 126m Octopus (click for article). JQB will also work on certain aspects of the exterior, which has been designed by Espen Øino.
Features include an impressive 200sqm sun deck, a waterside beach club including wellness and spa facilities, a main deck offering framed panoramic views over the ocean, and a dedicated owners’ deck. The yacht has been designed to carry a multitude of watercraft and toys, while there’s a helicopter landing area on the foredeck.

The yacht features Hybrid by Amels technology, so can cruise at up to seven knots on electric propulsion. The system offers extremely low noise and vibrations, so enhancing the onboard experience, and substantially reduces harmful emissions.
In-line with the Amels Limited Editions build concept, the specialist team at the shipyard has commenced work and is heading at full speed towards the scheduled 2026 delivery date.
Jan van Hogerwou, Commercial Executive, Damen Yachting, said: “It’s an honour to have been tasked with turning this experienced owner’s vision of yachting and ocean exploration into reality. We’re delighted to welcome the family to participate in the new build journey with all the talented parties involved.
“It’s our mission to get this adventurous young family out on the water, exploring and discovering the world’s oceans while free-diving, spear fishing and SCUBA diving, then sharing these experiences with family and friends inside all the comforts possible aboard the new, spectacular 80m Amels.”
