Industry news

By Katia Damborsky  2 December 2019

Known only as Amels Custom Project 78, the yet-to-be-named superyacht is due to hit the water for the first time on December 4. 

Custom Project 78, the largest Amels-built yacht in terms of gross tonnage, will be making waves with a technical launch later this week.

Once launched, she will head onwards to Amels’ outfitting facilities in Vlissingen. She is due for delivery in 2021. 

First unveiled at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show, the yacht sports exteriors by Espen Oeino and interiors by Francois Zuretti. 

She marks a major milestone for the Dutch yard, as their largest fully-custom superyacht as measured by gross tonnage.

Rose Damen, commercial director at Amels, has previously called the project “a particularly significant contract for Amels and a great compliment for our full custom team.” 

Renderings suggest a sleek exterior with a foredeck spa pool and sunpad selection. A second pool can be seen on the aft deck, alongside ample room for alfresco living. The sundeck offers both interior and exterior areas, ensuring the space is suited to a number of different purposes. 

Espen Oeino has previously commented on the Custom-built project, saying; “We are very impressed by the know-how and professionalism that the AMELS custom yachts team have displayed during the design development and negotiations and look forward to working together towards making this vessel a unique custom yacht we all can be proud of."

The yacht’s interiors have been kept largely under wraps. However, François Zuretti has promised a “contemporary, comfortable, functional vessels with distinct ethnic notes.”

The motor yacht has a gross tonnage of 2,850 GT and will be the third-longest yacht in the Amels fleet.

She supersedes the 83m/ 272ft motor yacht ‘Here Comes the Sun’, which has a gross tonnage of 2,827 GT. There are just 23 tonnes between them.

It is not yet known whether the superyacht will be available for private yacht charters.

This is a particularly significant contract for Amels and a great compliment for our full custom team.
