A first glimpse of the Amels 199, the latest in the Dutch yard’s Limited Editions series...

Industry News

Her bold exterior is the work of Tim Heywood and a flexible interior scheme has been worked up by Nuvolari & Lenard that should fit most requirements... But to get more we’ll have to wait for the official concept unveiling which will be during the Monaco Yacht Show in late September.

Thanks to that vertical stem, she’s got a waterline length of 59.8m (196ft) on a 60.6m (199ft) hull. That helps with her displacement speeds. She tops out at 16.5 knots, which would normally be possibly at 66-67m (216-220ft).
Dutch tank-test operation MARIN and the Technical University of Delft played their roles in the development of this one.
With a 1,045GT, she is reasonably big boat for her length. She will carry two 8m (26ft) tenders forward, plus lots of toys. And the area above the bridge will serve as a touch-and-go helipad.
The sun-deck is 23m (75ft) long, with protected dining aft and spa-pool forward. Then there’s a 35 square-metre (380 square-feet) beach terrace and 29 square-metre (310 square-feet) bathing platform.
She’s also said to incoporate a host of ‘green’ features, which it has to be said is an interesting notion for a non-sail superyacht .
Amels' Limited Editions series includes the 171, 177, 199 and 212, plus the yard will tender for custom new-builds and refits.
