Moran Yacht & Ship delivers Amels 242 yacht Plvs Vltra

18 August 2016• Written by Chris Jefferies

The first yacht in the Amels 242 Limited Editions range, Plvs Vltra has been delivered by Moran Yacht & Ship. The 74 metre yacht features exterior design by industry stalwart Tim Heywood.

Moran Yacht & Ship sold the yacht in 2013 but it wasn't until January 2016 that we were given a rare glimpse of Plvs Vltra as she briefly emerged from the shed in the Dutch shipyard.

Plvs Vltra is one of the Amels Limited Editions range, which aims to create a balance between pure custom building and semi-custom, meaning that the yachts can be delivered faster without compromising on quality.

Although the systems and technical aspects of the yacht come as standard, owners can choose a designer to help make the interior fit their own style. Plvs Vltra's interior design is by Winch Design and will accommodate 12 guests in six guest cabins, including a large owner's suite on the upper deck and two main deck VIPs.

On the main deck aft there is a large infinity pool with tenders stored below on either side. The sun deck features an intimate hot tub surrounded by sunpads, while the bridge deck includes a touch-and-go superyacht helipad.

Twin diesel engines will provide a top speed of 16.5 knots and Plvs Vltra will be more than capable of ocean crossings with a 5,000 nautical mile range at 12.5 knots.

The new construction team from Moran oversaw the construction process form the start. In a statement, the firm added: "We would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at the Amels Shipyard for their collaboration on another successful project."
