2 June 2021By Miranda Blazeby

The first 60 metre Limited Editions Amels 200 superyacht has been delivered to her owners and named Stella M.

The yacht, which was sold at the end of 2019 with Burgess representing the owners, will now embark on her first cruising season in the Mediterranean.

Amels and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar, who worked closely with the owners throughout the construction process, said: “We are very proud to hand Stella M over to her owner.”

“It has been a very intense project in challenging times but her delivery, on-time and on-budget, really comes down to the great collaboration between all parties involved."

Key features on board Stella M include a cavernous 1,015GT interior, an eco-friendly hybrid propulsion package and an elevator whisking guests between four decks. Additionally, an air-conditioned gym will sit on the sun deck while full-height windows will flood the owner’s suite with natural light.

“There are many features of this design that bring a smile to my face,” said exterior designer Tim Heywood.

“The many flying buttresses, the complex winding surfaces, the upturned deck ends, the integrated life rafts, the sculptural mast and the complex stern, all form a harmonious design that sits securely in her environment, of which I am extremely proud.”

The customised interior, which includes accommodation for 12 guests and 13 crew, has been penned by Reymond Langton.

Speaking about the interior, Heywood added: “The additional length invested into this design, has only increased her elegance and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior, which is illuminated by enlarged windows.”

Pilaar has also described the launch of the Amels 200 as “particularly special”.

“It is the first of 2021, it is the first Amels 200 and it is confirmation of the successful collaboration we have had with Burgess to ensure we have been able to offer the client fast delivery of an incredible project,” he said.

Stella M’s captain, Spyros Karalis, has now also revealed the "full-on" itinerary for Stella M's first cruising season in the Mediterranean. "We have plans to cruise the whole Mediterranean starting from Spain and then up to Greece, with France, Italy and all the other islands in between.”
