A 4,400-ton-volume yacht encompassing six decks, Amadea has been in her owner’s hands for two years. During that same time frame, she has largely stayed out of the media, by choice. The 348-foot (106.1-meter) megayacht has been as confidential since delivery as she was while under construction at Lürssen. However, since Amadea is for sale, the owner is allowing some select looks onboard.
Bearing a 60-foot (18.3-meter) beam, Amadea, a.k.a. Project Mistral, features the styling handiwork of Espen Øino. While prominent shapes are clear from side views, two real treats come from particular perspectives. First, note the albatross sculpture adorning her bow (above). Second, the balance and flow of the shapes rising up her six decks are most apparent when you view her from above. (Click the images in the photo gallery farther below for a closer look.)
In keeping with a megayacht of her magnitude, Amadea has abundant areas for large parties. With the owner’s input, François Zuretti penned the interior design for lavish, luxurious living. Sixteen people can stay aboard, since the yacht is PYC-compliant, in eight staterooms. These include VIPs (below) and twins, as well as a private owner’s deck. Besides, as you might imagine, having some of the best views onboard, the owner’s deck further includes a lounge and office. Yet, it also includes a bar, for intimate entertaining.
Whether with overnight guests or out cruising with up to 22 people, Amadea keeps the crowd entertained. In fact, entertainment is of great importance to the owner, due to a few cinemas aboard. Amadea has a dedicated indoor cinema, with D-Box seating. These are large theater seats that provide a hyper-realistic experience, moving in sync with the motion on screen. If the weather at night cooperates, though, guests can head outside for an alfresco cinematic experience.
For less adrenaline-inducing enjoyment, Amadea delivers. She has a soothing spa on her lower deck, where guests are surrounded by Moroccan design details. She additionally has a 33-foot-long (10-meter-long) infinity pool on her aft deck, surrounded by raised sunning and lounging spaces. Of course, the ocean is the ultimate infinity pool. Given the megayacht’s reported 8,000-nautical-mile range at 13 knots, abundant oceanic infinity pools await.
The photo gallery above allows closer looks at her shapely exterior curves and elaborate interior. The latter includes a welcoming winter garden on her main deck, with greenery carried straight into her striking chandelier.
Amadea appears at this month’s Monaco Yacht Show, available for visiting upon appointment via her exclusive agent, Imperial Yachts. The firm additionally represented the owner during the build.
