At 272 feet (83 meters), Here Comes the Sun certainly provides abundant space for the owners’ party to spread out and relax. In fact, she puts nearly 9,700 square feet (about 900 square meters) of interior and alfresco areas at their feet. Delivered by Amels, she’s seeing those enjoyment areas put to good use in her first season in the Med. In addition, Amels, along with the design teams, are now sharing what it was like to make her come to reality.
The clients were already familiar faces at Amels. They’d commissioned Imagine, the first Amels 212. It’s worth noting, too, that Here Comes the Sun also marks a first. She’s the first Amels 272. (For details, see this story.) Tim Heywood, responsible for the styling of both megayachts, says she resulted much the same way most repeat projects do. Here Comes the Sun was driven by a desire for more space. Heywood is quite pleased with how she looks suitably large and powerful. As he puts it in this video, “She’s not even a yacht. She’s a ship!”
While you get a few peeks at her interior in that video, the one below reveals more. Appropriately, too, you learn about what you’re seeing from Andrew Winch of Andrew Winch Designs. Listen as he describes the owners’ priorities. Here Comes the Sun is not a flashy, flamboyant project. Rather, she’s sedate and soothing inside, with warm oak paneling. In addition, the 16 guests who can stay aboard have abundant textures to stimulate the senses. These extend from the six staterooms on the main deck to the owners’ deck. They also extend from the beach club to the cinema.

Between her dimensions and accommodations, Here Comes the Sun fits the billing that Amels gave to her series, the Amels 272. That billing: “the Grand Dame.”
