It comes after the 67.1 metre yacht was delivered last month, marking the last handover of the Dutch yard, which has delivered four new build Limited Editions yachts, as well as three refit projects.
Amels managing director Rose Damen said the delivery of Aurora Borealis marked the end of "one of our busiest seasons ever".
"We're delighted to see our new Amels owners enjoying their yachts delivered as promised," she said.
Aurora Borealis hit the water for the first time on March 16 inside of the yard's covered dry docks.
The event was attended by the Amels project team along with the owner’s team, including the captain Paul Bickley and Fraser sales broker Antoine Larricq, who acted as the owner’s representative during the build. Mr Larricq also has her listed for sale.
Larricq said at the event: “Everyone is really impressed with how seamless this project has been. This is the result of all those hours of work and meetings, cutting materials, selecting marbles, and now we are right on schedule.”
Exterior design comes courtesy of British designer Tim Heywood and builds on the design of the Amels 212. However, the Amels 220 features elongated decks and a 65 square metre swim platform and beach club.
The custom interior design, meanwhile, has been created by Winch Design. Accommodation is for a total of 14 guests in seven suites, comprising a master suite forward on the main deck, two VIP suites on the bridge deck and four convertible twins/doubles on the lower deck.
Special features include a guest elevator to all decks, a steam room, spa and a fully-equipped gym as well as a tender garage spacious enough to house two eight-metre tenders.
