Amels superyacht Step One sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 55 metre motor yacht Step One, listed for sale by Moran Yacht & Ship, has been sold with Will Christie at Y.CO acting for the buyer.
Step One was delivered in 2012 by Dutch yard Amels as the first hull in the yard’s 180’ Limited Edition series.
Following in the footsteps of the successful Amels Limited Edition 171 and 177 series, the 180 series is also designed by Tim Heywood. At 660 Gross Tons, she offers a large interior volume. The main deck saloon is enlarged by 30 percent with an additional bar and seating area. The sky lounge is full-beam, and the sundeck is extended with a touch-and-go helipad just above the wheelhouse.
The interior, designed by Laura Sessa, accommodates 10 guests in five cabins. The full-beam master suite is on the main deck with its own fold-out balcony. An extra twin cabin nearby can be used for guests or children and three further double cabins are on the lower deck. She is MCA compliant and two twin MTU 16V 2000 M70 engines give her a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
Step One was asking €37 million.
