First interior renderings of largest Dutch-built motor yacht revealed

15 May 2024 • Written by Katia Damborsky and Dea Jusufi

The first interior renderings of Amels' 120-metre project, now known as Project Tanzanite, have been revealed. 

The full-custom superyacht was last seen in June 2023 when she arrived at the Damen Yachting facility in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, for outfitting.

The yacht is currently the largest project in build in the Netherlands, and, once delivered in 2025, will become the largest Dutch-built motor yacht in the world.

The record-breaking yacht is also set to become the largest member of the Amels fleet, surpassing the current 89-metre flagship Here Comes The Sun by 31 metres.

The yacht features exterior design by Espen Øino, who has worked with the yard on a number of projects in the last two years. Their shared portfolio includes the Amels 60, the Amels 80  and the 77.8-metre custom project Energy

Her interiors have been conceived by Nice-based studio Zuretti Design. Renderings reveal a warm, contemporary aesthetic that incorporates a cream and brown palette, curved furniture and statement walls in wood and marble.

Damen Yachting has completed the naval architecture in-house and the client will be represented throughout the build and final construction phase by Deeside Maritime.

The yacht arrived in the Netherlands from Damen Yachting's hull-building site in Galati, Romania. She was launched at the shipyard in May 2023, in a ceremony attended by local schoolchildren from the area.

Amels project manager Jeroen Waalewijn said at the time: "The launch of the hull was an emotional yet incredible moment for all of those who have played such an integral part in the realisation of the Amels 120 Full Custom so far. To see her out on the water and to now have her here in Vlissingen is a testament to the entire project team."

Project Tanzanite is set to incorporate the latest in design and technology, including diesel-electric engines and Azipod electric propulsion, which will help her "operate with the lowest levels of noise and vibration ever recorded on a yacht of this size", according to the yard.

She joins 12 other projects in build at Amels, including the 74-metre Nome, which was recently sighted on sea trials.
