Amels to host largest yacht at Miami Show
Published: Friday, 19 January 2018
Dutch yacht builder Amels is hosting the 83m yacht Here Comes The Sun (272 ft) – the largest Amels yacht delivered to date with 2,827GT – for her worldwide show debut at the Miami Yacht Show from February 15-19.
She will be occupying the show’s Island Gardens location berth A1 reserved for the largest yacht.
Rose Damen, Amels Commercial Director said: “We’re very excited to introduce the flagship of our 55-83m Limited Editions range in Florida. We have several yachts from the range now under construction.”
The yacht’s exterior design is by Tim Heywood and interior design by Winch Design. Since her on-time and on-budget delivery in January 2017, Here Comes The Sun has cruised the Mediterranean and Caribbean with her owners and is also available for charter.
The owners also built their previous yacht at Amels, the 65m Imagine, in 2011.
A recent new order has been made for a 78m Amels Full Custom yacht (256 ft) by Espen Øino. When this new yacht is delivered in 2021, it will be the largest Amels by gross tonnage built to date.
The shipyard has delivered 60 large superyachts – both Limited Editions and Full Custom range – and is part of the family-owned Damen Shipyards Group, one of the world’s largest specialist shipbuilders.
