Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco represented the Owner in the purchase of the project. The Owner is a long-standing repeat client of Fraser Yachts. This is Larricq’s second Amels project sold in 13 months.
“I am extremely proud to have signed another new construction project with Amels. The shipyard has proven its ability to adapt the 65-metre Limited Editions to the client’s wishes, with a shorter building time and an extended transom accommodating a beach club with spa area. I would like to thank our client and his Captain for an enjoyable long-term collaboration. I look forward to continuing a positive and constructive relationship with the Amels team,” comments Larricq.
VF Yachts, the in-house Project Management division of Fraser Yachts, will undertake the Project Management of the vessel and has been working closely with the Owner and the Amels Project team to finalise the design, based on the Owner’s experience from his previous vessels. Amels will deliver the yacht in 2019.
“This sale highlights the enduring value and top quality of Amels Limited Editions yachts,” says Amels Sales Manager Rose Damen. “With the proven naval architecture and engineering already in place, we can start steel-cutting straight away and she will be delivered in less than three years.”
The new project will be the fourth Amels 212 built. In 2011, Amels delivered the first Amels 212, Imagine, whose Owner was also represented by Fraser Yachts. (Imagine is now Infinite Shades after being sold by Fraser Yachts earlier this year).
In addition, Fraser Yachts’ long-standing history of collaboration with Amels includes the construction of 46-metre Maupiti (151ft) in 1993, 50-metre Kermit (164ft) in 2001, 52-metre Lady In Blue (171ft) in 2004 (now Nita K Ii after being sold for the second time by Fraser Yachts).
