83m Amels Superyacht Here Comes the Sun Sold

18 December 2019• Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 83 metre motor yacht Here Comes the Sun, listed for sale by Dennis Frederiksen at Fraser, has been sold in-house with the buyer introduced by Stuart Larsen.

Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Amels to a design by Tim Heywood, Here Comes the Sun was delivered in 2017 as the first in the yard’s Limited Editions 272 series.

An interior by Winch Design in intricately carved walnut panelling accommodates up to 18 guests in nine cabins. Master and VIP suites are found on the upper deck, as well as two VIP suites which can partition to become four staterooms. Three further guest cabins are located on the main deck. All guest cabins have television screens and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep 26 staff.

The main saloon features a circular dining table for 16 with curving full height glass doors to the aft deck and a central seating area with a long bar and a piano forward. Large windows throughout this deck flood the interior with light.

Here Comes the Sun was asking €155,000,000.

Forward of the lobby is a spectacular on-board cinema. The audio system combines a powerful ADA Suite Premium Home Theatre Preamplifier and a Lexicon DD-8 amplifier, plus Sonance speakers. For visuals there’s a full HD 3D JVC beamer with Vutec 123-inch projection screen and an 85-inch Samsung full HD 3D TV. The whole setup is controlled by a Crestron system that uses an Apple iPad mini as the user interface.

The sundeck above, the perfect place to recover from overindulgence, holds its own surprises. The superstructure to each side sweeps back in long curves, the aft sections of which are shaded glass. Behind these, Heywood has designed individual sunpad nooks, where guests can relax in shade and privacy. Her top speed is 17 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles at 15 knots with power coming from two 3,150.0hp Caterpillar 3516 diesel engines.
