Charter yacht of the week: Come Together, the 60m Amels that awakened a wildly successful series

15 March 2024 • Written by Georgia Boscawen

Each week we place a spotlight on one of the world’s finest superyachts for charter. This week, BOAT steps on board 60-metre Come Together in Antigua to discover how the first yacht in the new Amels Limited Editions series surpassed expectations…

Following in the footsteps of perhaps the most successful superyacht series in history, there was no question that 60-metre Come Together, the first of the new series, needed to be brilliant. Predictably it was, thanks to a mighty design collaboration with Espen Øino for the geometric exterior.

60m Come Together is available for charter with Y.CO

It was 2022 when Come Together finally hit the water. The market was edging back to normality after two years of Covid and the industry welcomed 350 new superyachts to the fleet. But while the industry’s 100-metre behemoths were making waves, our readers were understandably intrigued by the new Limited Editions. Naturally, the reveal of Come Together’s interiors was one of BOAT's biggest stories at the time.

The 60-metre yacht then went on to her inaugural charter season, after which Y.CO, her central agency for charter, identified her as one of their booked-up, in-demand yachts of the summer with glowing reviews from past charterers on both the design and the crew.

Key Features

LOA: 60m
Year: 2022
Builder: Amels
Guests: 12
Summer Locations: West Mediterranean, East Mediterranean

Come Together's main saloon

Geometric, perfectly proportioned, and contemporary, this is the mighty result of Øino’s work. But this was no easy feat as he explains; “You are designing a boat for a market, not an individual. You can’t go too crazy because you are trying to hit the maximum percentage of people who would like it but, at the same time, it needs to look a bit different – it can’t just be another boat. It’s a fine line.”

The design is punctuated by her large trapezoid windows and a metallic hull that appears to encase the white superstructure. The unique pebble colour of the hull was an achievement as the metallic hue required the painting to be completed in one shot in order to accomplish the same tones across the hull. For this, it took 12 painters to spray in one tent simultaneously.

Life on board Come Together?

Stepping on board you’ll discover why Come Together’s exteriors are the way they are, as light pours through her windows and illuminates the neutral tones of her interior, which was designed by renowned British studio, Winch Design.  Her main saloon is endowed with a geometric light fixture - a nod to her exteriors – and an earthy palette of materials that includes Jerusalem limestone, light-bleached matte oak, light-tone walnut and bronze. 

Elsewhere you’ll find plush sofas to fill her convivial spaces, as well as a bespoke games table created by Hull Studio and a dining table that can be extended to squeeze in an extra dinner date. 

Accommodation on board is for 12 guests across six cabins, incluging the vast owners suite which is bathed in light thanks to her full height windows. Here a large folding balcony opens up while the yacht is at anchor, transforming into a 7-square-metre terrace.

Out on deck

Crowning the yacht is a 27-metre-long sundeck that features an outdoor cooking station with a teppanyaki grill and an extendable dining table that seats up to 18 guests for occasional dining; the space can also be set up as an outdoor cinema where guests can cosy up under the stars.

“The sun deck is a real highlight,” said Y.CO’s Sioned Williams, Come Together's charter manager. “It’s extremely spacious and offers huge variety. There are DJ decks that are ideal for entertainment, as well as a teppanyaki grill and bar in the middle, a large Jacuzzi, and plenty of space for sunbathing or yoga and workout sessions. Her beach club, which has a spacious sauna, is also a standout spot.”

She was designed to be a beachhouse on-the-water – and how better to encapsulate this than her magnificent beach club. Home to a mammoth 38-square metre swim platform, this is where you come to bask in Come Together’s adventurous side. Here you’ll find her high-octane selection of toys, which includes jet skis, sea bobs, E-foils and snorkelling gear. When you’re finished frolicking in the water, guests can relax in her vast beach club or in the sauna.

“Charterers always comment that the crew are a real highlight with reviews frequently mentioning how delicious the food is,” added Williams. “The signature cocktails they’ve enjoyed and the inventive ways the crew keep families entertained (think Olympics-style tournaments) are a real highlight. Their stylish uniforms are always complimented by anybody who comes on board too.”

Where will Come together be chartering this summer?

Come Together will be available to charter in the East and Western Mediterranean this summer. She is available to charter with Y.CO with a weekly rate starting from €450,000.
