The first Amels 80 Limited Editions superyacht is now in-build with the steel cutting having got underway at the Damen Yachting hull building facility in Galati. The yacht, which has been designed and started on speculation, is due for delivery in 2025.
First unveiled earlier this year in an online launch event, the Amels 80 features exterior design from Espen Øino and interiors from Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design. Damen Yachting has pledged to build this latest iteration of the highly popular Amels Limited Editions series in sustainable materials, “leveraging the most suitable and innovative hybrid technology available today.”
Romke van der Linde, Project Manager of the first Amels 80 (8001), explains the importance of this key moment for those who have been involved in the project so far. “For all of us at Damen Yachting, the steel cutting of the first Amels 80 is a really significant milestone. It represents the first stage of the build and the start of this new design being transformed into reality. The Amels 80 is a very exciting project to be part of and we are all looking forward to seeing her through the build journey and watch as this new Amels Limited Editions comes to life.”
Paul Costerus, Lead Designer at Sinot, “It’s a very neutral and natural palette. Materials are treated in such a way that the natural characteristics remain as pure as possible. The style is distinctive and yet still allows plenty of room for owners to customise and add their personal style.”
The next event for the build of the vessel will be the laying of the keel, which is due to take place next month.
