The 74m AMELS 242 from the Limited Editions range is the second of four AMELS 242 yachts now delivered or in build. NEW SECRET has an exterior design by Tim Heywood and the owners’ choice of Winch Design for the custom interiors in a modern style.
NEW SECRET was delivered in May and has since cruised Norway and the Western Mediterranean. The owners have agreed to bring NEW SECRET to the Monaco Yacht Show as a showcase for the AMELS Limited Editions range.
On display at the T-Central location, LILI is a showcase of a highly customised 55m AMELS 180 -- the first to feature a Bridge Deck Master Suite. LILI was first delivered in June, just more than 12 months after her sale in May 2016.
Among the owner-requested features, LILI has an extended sun deck with a four-metre swimming pool, and custom interiors by designer Laura Sessa.
AMELS is exhibiting LILI together with IMPERIAL, offering clients the high-end charter experience with the shipmaker's quality and finishing.
Also on the T-Central is the 55m NEW FRONTIERS is DAMEN’s latest project — the culmination of nearly 10 years of DAMEN Yacht Support design and engineering experience. NEW FRONTIERS is currently completing outfitting at DAMEN’s yard in the Netherlands before heading directly to Monaco.

GAME CHANGER is DAMEN’s latest 70m Yacht Support vessel which now features the all-weather protected helicopter hangar. Berthed at the Monaco Yacht Show next to the AMELS 242 NEW SECRET, GAME CHANGER offers a combination of style and capability to support the mother yacht.
Delivered in early summer, GAME CHANGER has offices, facilities and accommodation for 23 staff, pilots, security and crew.
The vessel has a helideck, deck space for tenders and toys, below deck space for cargo, dive centre or owner-specific function.
