Amels launches Limited Editions 180 yacht Lili
by Chris Jefferies
Dutch yard Amels has launched the 55 metre superyacht Hull 471, which has been named Lili.
Sold in April 2016 by Imperial Yachts, who also provided owner’s representative and construction supervision services throughout the build, Lili is part of the Amels Limited Editions 180 collection. Delivery is scheduled before the end of the year.
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to Lloyd’s Registry standards and MCA compliant, her exterior styling is by Tim Heywood, while the interior décor was created by Laura Sessa Design working within a total volume of 707GT.
Accommodation is for 12 guests split across six staterooms, including an owner’s cabin on the bridge deck, as well as three doubles and two twins below decks, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to 12 people.
Key features on board Lili include a multitude of folding balconies and a private aft deck with direct access from the owner’s suite. But the star of the show is an extended superyacht sundeck that covers a total area of 175 square metres. This huge deck space has been used to fit a four-metre counter-current swimming pool.
Power comes from a pair of 1,308hp MTU 16V 2000 M70 diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots. When trimmed back to 13 knots, Lili will boast a maximum cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles.
