In build Amer 94 luxury yacht to utilise Volvo Penta IPS power

In build Amer 94 luxury yacht to utilise Volvo Penta IPS power

Amer Yachts, part of the Premare Group, is well underway of the build of its new Amer 94 Save the Sea. The Italian shipyard has provided an update on in its in-build Amer 94 luxury yacht and behind the scenes photos.

Premare has told Boat International that its Amer 94 Save the Sea model is, "at the last phases of her construction; the interiors are almost completed and we are starting to get everything ready in order to let her take part in the Cannes and Genoa boat shows."

The Amer 94 Save the Sea is an evolution of the Amer 92, which in turn was an improvement upon the Amer 86.

In Autumn 2014, Amer Yachts started the construction of the 28 metre Amer 94, which will be powered by Volvo Penta IPS engines. The pod-drive IPS system has joystick controls for nimble handling and docking ease. As this system is devised for yachts from nine to 30 metres, the Amer 94 will be one of the larger yachts to take this system on board.

Amer Yachts has worked in close cooperation with Volvo Penta, Seakeeper and Extender across the design and components of its new Amer 94 luxury yacht. The Extender tender, for instance, is unique for its vertically folding bow, which saves space when being stowed.

Inspired by the power package on the Amer 94, the shipyard building her is looking toward further innovations in propulsion. Premare is researching concepts that see yachts powered by four Volvo Penta IPS engines or, on the other end of the spectrum, utilising eco-friendly electric motors.

Revealing photos of the in-build Amer 94, we see that she is well underway to being ready for her autumn debut. The Amer 94 should be on-hand at the Cannes, Genoa and Doha yacht shows in 2015.
