74m Amels superyacht New Secret sold

20 June 2024 • Written by Holly Margerrison

The 74-metre Amels motor yacht New Secret has been sold with Ian Sherwood and Stephanie Bosi of Burgess representing the seller and Jonathan Barbe of Edmiston representing the buyer. Built in the Netherlands with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the 1,790GT superyacht was delivered in 2017 as the second hull of the Dutch shipyard's 242 LE series and has only been used by its original owner. 

New Secret's exterior lines are the work of Tim Heywood and she differs from her sistership Plvs Vltra (hull one) in having a completely white superstructure. Her neutral interior, by Winch Design, is characterised by soft lighting and sculptural curves found in the windows and ceilings, giving her a serene ambience. 

New Secret was asking €109,000,000 and lying in Malta.

Accommodating 14 guests across six cabins, New Secret has an owner’s deck with master cabin featuring full-height glazing throughout. The owner's suite overlooks a private foredeck lounge, to which there is direct access, and includes a his-and-hers en suite, office and lounge. Two VIP suites are found on the main deck with a further three large guest cabins on lower deck. There is provision for a crew of 19.

Onboard highlights include a large eight-metre pool on the 180-square-metre main deck aft, which is flanked by sun loungers, armchairs, coffee tables and a semi-circular bar. There is access to a dayhead on the starboard-side deck and steps on either side lead down to a large swim platform. 

Stepping inside through sliding glass doors, guests can unwind in the lounge, complete with sofas and armchairs. Forward is the formal dining area, where a circular dark gloss walnut table sits underneath a ring of lighting, and an accent wall – which is actually the doors to a china cabinet – displays a solar system of steel rings against a background of pearlescent crystal tiles.

Owner's deck aft

Up on the aft deck, the yacht is crowned by a functional touch-and-go helipad and inside is an en suite pilot’s cabin with a single berth and a guest lounge. Meanwhile, the sundeck has a raised Jacuzzi with plenty of space for guests to relax on sunpads or dine in the intimate lounge seating forward. Guests can also access the bridge deck, featuring sofa seating forward of the bridge, with step access from the owner's deck below.

While a media lounge faces a large bulkhead-mounted TV, a more relaxed lounge looks aft through an arc of sliding glass doors onto a private aft terrace. Outside, guests can make the most of a fully equipped bar and dining for up to 14 guests beneath the overhang and sun lounge seating.

The beach club

A wellness centre with a large folding sea terrace to starboard is located on the lower deck. The full-beam spa has a dedicated gym, massage room, sauna, steam shower and lounge with juice bar radiating off a central large spa pool. Lower deck shell doors conceal two large tenders and a selection of watertoys, and guests can also make use of the elevator serving lower to bridge decks.

Powered by a pair of Caterpillar engines, the yacht boasts a range of 5,000 nautical miles, reaching a top speed of 16.5 knots with a cruising speed of 15 knots.
