On February, it was reported that new Amels Limited Edition 199 motor yacht has been launched.
The designer behind this 60.6 m superyacht beauty is Tim Heywood. One of the main characteristics is her scimitar bow. These aesthetic innovations in no way compromise the practical function and efficiency of the yacht. The scimitar bow, for example, gives the yacht a longer waterline, meaning it performs more like conventional 65 metre yacht, and will be up to 15 per cent more fuel efficient than an equivalent clipper-bowed vessel.
The Amels 199 also benefits from the extensive research and development already carried out for the other yachts in Amels’ Limited Editions range. The technical areas have been centralised, which makes it much simpler to customise and configure the interior to the owner’s particular requirements.
16.5 knots top speed and a autonomy orange of 5,000 nautical miles at 13 knots cruising speed are expected.
The interior designer is Laura Sessa. It easily accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins: full-beam master suite is on the main deck, two VIPs on the bridge deck and a double and two twins on the lower deck.
Here is what Tim Heywood said, and we quote: ‘I’m so pleased that Amels and the owner of Event shared my passion for such a thrilling looking design as the Amels 199. On paper and in concept form the scimitar bow and reverse tumblehome features of the design looked very exciting, and now to see the reality is a dream come true.”
The first Amels 199 was sold at the end of last year through Monaco-based management company Imperial. The client took full advantage of the ability to customise the yacht extensively, with Heywood and the Amels design and ngeineering team having reconfigured elements of the package to incorporate the owner’s requests.
Customisations include the enclosed sun deck area, with access from the central staircase; the touch-and-go helipad on the foredeck; an additional folding bulwark with integrated boarding ladder; and a fully customised interior by Laura Sessa.
“MY Event” is offered for charter by Imperial Yachts. She will be available in Norway in May and June and then she will head to West Mediterranean.
