The 57.3-metre classic Feadship motor yacht Amara has had a currency change from euros to dollars and a price reduction in the region of $4,500,000 with Y.CO ahead of her appearance at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.
Amara started life at Dutch shipyard Feadship in 1986 and has been extensively refitted since her launch, including a $20,000,000 transformation beginning in 2016 that saw her selected as a finalist in the Best Refit category at the World Superyacht Awards.
In 2021, under new ownership, she returned home to the Feadship yard to receive further updates to a value of $4,000,000, including a new helipad that can accommodate a twin-engine helicopter such as an H135, new teak decking, an engine overhaul and her Lloyd's 35-year class survey.
Her most recent refit also saw the removal of the bulwarks on the sun deck to create a single space with an open-plan layout from the helipad aft, through to a sit-up bar and a 12-person Jacuzzi.
Amara sports a fresh and contemporary interior by the legendary Terence Disdale with accommodation for a total of 10 guests. A bright master suite is found on the main deck and spans across the yacht's 9.5-metre beam with walk-in wardrobes and an adjoining lounge. The remaining guest accommodation is split between two double cabins and two convertible twins on the lower deck.
Her two saloons offer a vast space where guests can lounge and dine, although dining is best enjoyed al fresco on the shaded upper deck aft. Her interior features a calm and neutral palette of creams and beiges throughout with bursts of marine blue.
Amara was built as a world cruiser with a steel hull, a 5,600 nautical mile range, and helicopter capability that has enabled her to travel as far as Alaska and Indonesia in her lifetime. Now with zero-speed stabilisers, a larger helipad and all-new navigation systems, she awaits a new owner looking to continue her adventures around the globe. Power comes from a pair of Deutz diesel engines delivering a top speed of 16 knots.
Amara is now asking $17,900,000 and will be available to view at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.
