The 74 metre Amels Project 242-07 has been handed over to her owner and christened M&EM. She marks the seventh launch from the yard's Limited Editions 242 series and joins sisterships Avanti and New Secret as she departed the Damen Yachting shipyard.
M&EM features a dedicated forward-facing owner's deck complete with a hot tub with a large swimming pool on the main deck aft. An interior volume of 1,790 GT can accommodate up to 12 guests and 19 crew members, although the configuration of the cabins is yet to be revealed.
Project manager, Peter Dijkwel, said that Amels was "delighted to be handing over this beautiful yacht to her owners", calling it "a milestone which has been made possible thanks to the excellent collaboration between all parties involved."
The yacht has been equipped with a clean emissions power and propulsion package to meet the latest IMO Tier III regulations. Unlike some of its sisterships, M&EM has also incorporated a modified stern as well as integrated hydraulic steps for swift access to the water.
Speaking on the new launch, 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."
The eighth Limited Editions 242 hull was sold in December 2021 and is scheduled for delivery in 2024.
