Key features include a cavernous 1,015GT interior, hybrid propulsion package and 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.”

Amels and Damen Yachting sales manager Jorrit Pilaar 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.
