New build Amels 242 superyacht sold

A 74 metre new construction Amels motor yacht has been sold by Antoine Larricq at Fraser Yachts in Monaco.

To be built in steel and aluminium with exterior design by Tim Heywood, she will be the second hull in the Amels 242 Limited Edition range and is scheduled for delivery in spring 2017. Andrew Winch has been selected to design the interior, working closely with owner.

Sold to a long-standing repeat client, this will be the fourth new build project that Antoine Larricq has overseen on behalf of this buyer.

The Amels 242, at 1,787 GT, will be used for world cruising and features an elongated aft deck, thus creating superior exterior luxury spaces with a light and airy volume. VF Yachts, the in‐house Project Management division of Fraser Yachts, will undertake the Project Management of the build.

Fraser broker Antoine Larricq explains: “We initially visited the AMELS 212 Z during the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show. Thereafter we explored all possibilities of potential projects under construction. This took us worldwide, traveling as far as the Antipodes and China and finally extended to the study of a full custom solution. With the client's brief uppermost, it gradually became clear that the Amels shipyard ticked all the boxes.

“Some examples: Build quality, reputation and design pedigree, spa area, helicopter capability, owner’s deck layout and delivery date within 18 months. The owner’s team, Fraser Yachts Management and Amels have enjoyed a fruitful collaboration leading to the recent signature of this new build contract.”
