57.3m superyacht Amara emerges from Feadship refit
First launched as Cacique in 1986, Amara was bought by the current owners in 2020, who spent the first season aboard in Alaska. Following the season, the owners wanted to update and reinforce Amara’s helideck.
The new helideck was engineered and built in-house by Feadship, with the finished article bearing Amara’s logo, rather than the customary “H”.
Speaking about the new helideck, captain Tim Rowland said: “Our new deck is state of the art, designed in the same shape as the previous one while being strong enough to accommodate twin-engine helicopters”.
The yacht also underwent a number of additional works, including alterations and upgrades, as well as the Lloyd’s 35-year survey. The sun deck was treated to a new layout and is now open plan with fitted with aluminium lockers.
Elsewhere, the original main engines were overhauled with all turbos, pumps and heat exchangers revised. The rudder shafts were replaced, and new bronze rudder shaft bearings fitted. Amara features exterior design by Frits de Voogt and interiors by Terence Disdale.
