The megayacht seen here will soon join the ranks of ones such as Deniki, Engelberg, and Step One in cruising the world. She, and they, are members of the Amels 180 club.
Amels launched the project over the weekend and shared the images via Twitter. She’s known for now as Amels 469, her hull number. In keeping with the rest of the series, she bears styling by Tim Heywood. Interior design is open to owner choice. Though we do not know who is responsible for her décor, or what the highlights are, previous Amels 180 deliveries have been designed by Nuvolari-Lenard and Laura Sessa.
Also in keeping with the prior deliveries, this Amels 180 features fold-down balconies off the saloon and the master suite. The 707 gross tonnage and 31-foot (9.4-meter) beam should ensure spaces for the owner’s party of 12 (and 12 crew, plus the captain) feel voluminous. The sundeck surely should, comprising 121 square feet (55 square meters).
When sea trials are conducted, Amels expects to confirm a 15½-knot top speed. Best range should be 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
