Amels superyacht Aquarius sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Amels to a design by Terence Disdale, Aquarius was delivered in 2007. Accommodation is for as many as 16 guests in six versatile cabins consisting of master and VIP suites on the main deck and four cabins below with Pullman berths, all with full en suite facilities.
Aft on the main deck is a large saloon with a dining area seating 22 guests while the aft deck has a very pleasant seating area overlooking the large swim platform and beach club. Up on the bridge deck is a sky lounge with a bar and a further dining area while the sun deck is a favourite area with guests. Here one finds a jet pool, Jacuzzi and bar with eight stools, dining tables and seating to port and starboard, a large sun pad and six sun loungers. The aft area of the sun deck acts as a heli pad.
Aquarius underwent an extensive refit in 2012, which included a full repaint, audio/visual equipment upgrades, a stern extension and new windows in the main saloon to create an exceptionally open and light interior with panoramic views on all sides. Her machinery and systems have also completed a full review and overhaul.
Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, twin 2,230hp Caterpillar engines give Aquarius a range of 5,250 nautical miles.
Aquarius was asking €53 million.
