Do you like Sudoku? Then you’ll appreciate why the Amer 120 bears this model name.
This month marks a happy occasion for Permare. The shipyard celebrated its 47th birthday on March 1. Simultaneously, Permare is celebrating its new model, the Amer 120. This flagship project began construction more than one and a half years ago, with launch scheduled in 2021. The yacht, which could be destined for multiple private and charter uses, will make her premiere at the international boat shows next year. Equally notable, the Amer 120 plays on mathematical symbolism.
Why is mathematical symbolism involved? Actually, all of boating is based on complex mathematical calculations. But complementary numerology-related reasons are also behind the name.
For example, the number 120 in the model name is not just her 120-foot length. It is also the sum of four successive prime numbers that symbolize her four pod drives.
Even the number four is symbolic. In numerology, 4 means balance, contact with one’s roots, stability, and security. All of these are key points to Amer Yachts.
Furthermore, 120 is a triangular number. This means it is the sum of the natural numbers from 1 to 15. It is also the sum of the first 8 triangular numbers, which makes it a tetrahedral number. For Amer Yachts, it symbolizes the bow, a triangle pointing the hull of the Amer 120 toward the sea.
There is even more symbolism behind 120. It’s a multi-perfect number, for instance. This expresses the symthesis of the synergic work of the Amer Yachts team and its suppliers. Up to 120 people are participating in the construction of the Amer 120, in fact.
Finally, 120 is an untouchable number—at least until the next record for the shipyard. Amer Yachts hopes this record-setting yacht lasts for a long time. The shipyard is unbeaten for the experience it gained in the superyacht sector in terms of fuel economy. The Amer 94 Twin burns just 3.1 liters per nautical mile while at a 9-knot economical cruise.
