The largest Amels superyacht to date emerged at the Dutch luxury yacht builder’s yard in Vlissingen, Denmark on June 30. The 83-metre Here Comes The Sun (272 ft) is the flagship of the Amels Limited Editions range and on schedule for delivery by the end of the year.

“I knew she would be stunning,” comments the Owners’ Representative and Project Manager Yavor Nenov after the yacht emerged from the 215-metre Amels Drydock 2. “She’s very impressive and I think she’s a credit to the yard and all the hundreds of craftsmen working on her.”
The first Amels 272 has an exterior by British designer Tim Heywood and interior by Winch Design. The graceful, feminine profile and long deck spaces disguise a large volume for her length with a gross tonnage of 2,827 over six decks.
“Here Comes The Sun is a wonderful example of Owners stepping up to larger yachts within the Amels Limited Editions range,” says Amels Managing Director Rob Luijendijk. “Our approach gives Owners a great head start as well as the flexibility for customisation at the highest level. It also proves our large yacht building expertise – absolute top quality and smooth production.”
