Amels begins construction on first Limited Editions 206 yacht

Amels begins construction on first Limited Editions 206 yacht

The evolution of Amels’ Limited Editions yacht collection continues with the latest model from the Dutch yard, the Limited Editions 206. The 62.4 metre is now under construction and is due for delivery in Spring 2020.

Based on the proven platform of the Limited Editions 199, which has already spawned two hulls (Event and Madame Kate), the 206 also features exterior styling by British designer Tim Heywood.

As the name suggests, the Amels Limited Editions 206 yacht is longer than the 199 and this extra 2.4 metres has been used to extend the bathing platform, which now measures 29 metres square.

Meanwhile, the aft deck has been elongated and the superyacht beach club now spans a total area of 35 square metres. However, the star of the show is arguably the massive superyacht sundeck, which has been stretched to 23 metres long and contains sunpads aft and a hexagonal spa pool forward.

An interior by Laura Sessa can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins, including two VIP suites on the bridge deck and a main-deck owner’s cabin complete with port and starboard folding balconies.

Iconic features from the Amels Limited Editions 199 yacht have been retained, such as the large circular portholes and the gull wing doors that provide access to the foredeck tender garage. The yacht will have a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical at a cruising speed of 13 knots.

“The boat is full of details, little surprises, little differences,” said exterior designer Tim Heywood. “Aft of the wing station, the form of the boat shoots up to the deck above and then I changed the tumblehome from in to out – from positive to negative – and it makes such an interesting form.”
