AMELS 188

Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS has added a superyacht, AMELS 188, to its fleet of six 55m to 83m-long Limited Editions range.

The new 57.70m-long AMELS 188 superyacht is the first in the Limited Editions range to be equipped with a hybrid power system and combines advanced solutions.

Additionally, the yacht also features heat recovery, which will facilitate the reuse of energy already on board minimising the carbon footprint while also reducing the operational expenses.

According to the company, AMELS 188 has been designed with a holistic approach to hybrid technology for hotel load.

AMELS managing director Rob Luijendijk said: "Our clients have been tremendously excited about these yachts.

"If you look at the 55m AMELS 180 and the 60m AMELS 199, they are both unique and very successful designs.

"The 57.70m AMELS 188 fits perfectly between these two yachts, bringing something entirely new to a market segment that we have traditionally shown leadership in."

Designed by a team comprising of Tim Heywood, Pascale Reymond and Andrew Langton, the yacht features open decks with generous outdoor spaces, 30m² Beach Club and the Wellness Centre's gym, sauna and Turkish steam shower.

According to the builder, the yard leveraged the dedicated research and development resources of its parent company Damen Shipyards, to perfect its new design.

With the construction of the yacht nearing completion, it is expected to be delivered in early 2018.
