Grey skies during her photo shoot have no bearing on the sunny summer plans that the owner and crew of Stella M have. “This summer season is going to be very full on,” explains Capt. Spyros Karalis. Count the shores of Spain, France, Italy, and Greece among her must-visit destinations. Several islands off the coasts of each are on the itinerary, too.
Stella M is the new delivery from the Amels 200 Limited Editions series. Similar to a number of the other Limited Editions series, the project began on spec. The shipyard and designer Tim Heywood created her as an evolution of the Amels 188, with a larger volume as well as longer length. LOA is 197 feet (60 meters), while volume is 1,105 gross tons, up from her predecessor’s 970 gross tons. Heywood believes the additional length lends more elegance. Styling-wise, meanwhile, he incorporated more large glass. He incorporated more winding surfaces, too. This not only catches the eye on first glance, but also catches the light. As he explained during the megayacht’s construction, the interplay of dark and light enhances her appeal.
With accommodations for 12 in the owner’s party, along with 12 crew and Capt. Karalis, Lady M features interior design by Reymond Langton. Although imagery is not available, relaxation and entertainment areas benefit from plenty of natural light thanks to the already mentioned enlarged glass. The owner’s suite has floor-to-ceiling glass, too. Out on deck, capacious areas from the sundeck to the swim platform will cater to big gatherings and intimate experiences alike. Those experiences all over the Med will come courtesy of a hybrid propulsion system as well.
“I am very much looking forward to getting her out on the ocean and welcoming the owner onboard for all the adventures that lie ahead,” her captain concludes.
