2 May 2024 • Written by Nick Jeffery

The 47.9-metre Christensen motor yacht Amore has been sold with Michael Selter of IYC representing the buyers and Kevin Merrigan and Wes Sanford of Northrop & Johnson representing the seller. She had recently had a change of central agency and was listed with Merle Wood and John Cohen of Merle Wood & Associates. 

Amore was delivered by US yard Christensen in 2005 and had an extensive $2,800,000 refit completed at Rybovich in Fort Lauderdale in 2022. Work on the GRP yacht included a new paint job, an engine overhaul and an upgraded galley. Interior and exterior soft furnishings were replaced in 2021 and she completed her 15-year ABS special survey in 2020.

Amore was last asking $19,750,000.

She offers generous accommodation for 12 to 16 guests in six cabins with a crew of 10. The master suite sits on the main deck with five guest cabins below, comprising a full-beam VIP, two guest suites with king-sized beds and two further cabins with double beds, a single bed and a Pullman berth. A lift serves all four decks, complementing a spiral staircase.

Traditional interiors are finished with warm walnut panelling and cabinetry, highlighted with a sophisticated marble inlay throughout. The spacious main deck offers a formal dining area for up to 12 guests, while the sky lounge is outfitted with a marble-topped bar. Amore's stand-out sundeck is complete with a barbecue, shaded bar and a lounge plus a forward Jacuzzi with far-reaching ocean views.

The aft deck of this 499GT yacht boasts an al fresco dining area for up to 10 guests with sunloungers. There is another social space found on her bow.

Twin MTU 1,800hp diesel engines power her to a top speed of 17 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles with 12-knot cruise speed. IYC pointed out that the new owners are adding Amore to their "Norma Jean fleet".

Amore was last asking $19,750,000.
