The blue hull of 74 metre Project Amels 242-07 has emerged from the dry dock at the Amels and Damen Yachting yard in the Netherlands, signifying the project’s launch.

The yacht is scheduled for delivery in summer 2022, just 18 months after her owner stepped into the project. The project was sold with construction overseen by Imperial and represents the brokerage firm’s tenth collaboration with Amels and Damen Yachting.

“Seeing Amels 242-07 head out of the shed, into the daylight and onto the water for the first time is a proud moment for the entire team at Damen Yachting. We are now looking forward to the next phase as we embark upon the final build stages and sea trials ahead of delivery to her owner, ready for a summer of adventures at sea,” said Damen Yachting project manager Peter Dijkwel.

Penned by Tim Heywood with interior styling by Winch Design, Project Amels 242-07 is the seventh yacht to be launched from the Limited Editions series.

The yacht has an interior volume of 1,790 GT and can accommodate up to 12 guests and 19 crew members, although the configuration of the cabins is yet to be revealed.

According to the yard, Project Amels 242-07 also features a dedicated owner's deck complete with a foredeck hot tub and a helipad. To meet the newest IMO Tier III regulations, the yacht has been equipped with a clean emissions power and propulsion package.

Unlike some of its sisterships, the latest Amels 242 has also incorporated a modified stern as well as integrated hydraulic steps for swift access to the water.

Rob Luijendijk, sales director of Damen Yachting, said: “This design has captured the imagination of many clients and this one, in particular, is a great example of the Limited Editions concept." He added that the client was "able to customise many aspects to create a yacht that suits their specific requirements."
