Motor yacht Sea Rhapsody christened at Amels

The new 65.5 metre motor yacht Sea Rhapsody, the second hull of the Limited Edition 212 series, was christened at the Amels shipyard in Vlissingen, Holland, on April 20th 2012.

More than 600 people were there to witness the christening, including naval architect Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch, who designed the interior. The sleek curves of Heywood’s exterior looked spectacular as different coloured spotlights lit up the gleaming superstructure.

Representing the owners, Nicholas Dean of Ocean Independence said: ‘The owners cannot wait for their first family cruise and truly enjoyed the building process.’

Her interior designer, Andrew Winch, says, ‘Sea Rhapsody’s architectural design has been subtly developed, incorporating new material choices to create an individual signature, specific to the client.’

Sea Rhapsody is now delivered and she's currently cruising the Ionian Sea.
