Delivered in early 2017, the 83m/272ft motor yacht ‘Here Comes The Sun’ is one of the largest – not to mention one of the most exciting – superyachts available for charter.
Boasting an enormous volume and a number of unique design flourishes, the latest superyacht from Amels promises to deliver an unforgettable charter experience.
The first hull in the Amels 272 range, Here Comes The Sun marks a huge landmark in the history of the award-winning Dutch shipyard. Indeed, with a range of pioneering features and a similarly fresh approach to the general layout, the motor yacht is unlike any that have come before her.
With years of yacht ownership under his belt, her Beatles-loving owner was largely involved in the design process, ensuring every space on board is fully optimised for use and comfort.
Boarding Here Comes The Sun and entering the calmly styled main salon, guests receive the warmest of welcomes to the intimate world at their disposal.
Framed by a charming grand piano, the main salon of superyacht Here Comes The Sun forms the social centre of the interior, with a large bar on the starboard side serving up endless refreshments.
The lounge area to the port side is comprised of a large semi-circular sofa, allowing the entire party to comfortably gather for conversation and cocktails well into the evening.
What’s more, the dining table located at the aft of the main salon is an ideal alternative to the numerous alfresco options found out on the exterior.
The distinct lack of glossy surfaces around superyacht Here Comes The Sun leads to a calming environment made up of attractive materials and textures
Foregoing the shiny finishes common to many motor yachts, the interior sections of Here Comes The Sun are instead composed of warm matte browns, creams, bronzes, and golds. This palette ultimately serves to create a tranquil ambience whilst at the same time accentuating the impressive volume on offer.
In addition to this inviting design scheme, there’s plenty of natural light illuminating the main salon thanks to the expansive windows which enclose it. Of course, this also means guests are able to enjoy panoramic views even once they’re returned from the exterior.
Immediately forward of the main salon guests will find a state-of-the-art home cinema – the perfect place to catch up on all of the latest blockbusters Hollywood has to offer.
Split across two spacious levels, and with the option to block out any natural light passing through from outside, this thoughtfully laid out area can be enjoyed by the entire party at any point during the day.
Particularly popular amongst younger charter guests, the home cinema is sure to appeal just as much to adults in search of some evening entertainment.
Another inspired communal space found on board the superyacht is the alfresco dining area and intimate lounge area found on the bridge deck aft.
What makes the dining section so unique is the way it looks into the galley, meaning charter guests can observe and communicate with the chef as their meals are being prepared.
The lounge – situated right next to the elegant glass elevator – is just the place for catching a quiet moment during the day or gathering in for some post-dinner cocktails.
What’s more, should guests desire to join the captain and enjoy the views available from the bridge, there’s ample seating which will allow them to do so in comfort.
Also on offer to guests chartering superyacht Here Comes The Sun is a stunning collection of wellness and fitness facilities.
Located just aft of the beach club on the lower deck, the health and wellbeing amenities include a fully-equipped gymnasium, a dedicated spa area, and a peacefully designed sauna.
All certain to appeal to guests who enjoy combining sunbathing with even greater forms of relaxation, these features are all finished in the same attractive styling found elsewhere on board.
Typically the preserve of the principal charter guest, the owner’s deck of luxury yacht Here Comes The Sun is in every respect a private sanctuary.
Indeed, with its own lounge, which is comparable in both size and quality to that of the main salon, the occupant can enjoy select company in supreme comfort and privacy.
A large centrally positioned television screen has also been included to entertain guests or couples who find themselves unwinding here.
With lounging spaces, a fully-equipped office, and an inviting balconies, the owner’s deck offers a private world of luxury
Curving off the port and starboard sides, superbly furnished balconies provide the perfect spot for the occupant to enjoy a morning coffee with a view.
Seamlessly integrating the interior with the exterior, this design ultimately means that the owner’s deck offers everything which could be possibly be desired whilst away on a private yacht charter vacation.
Should any business require seeing to, a well appointed office – complete with gold Beatles records – is located aft on the starboard side of the cabin.
With a large desk and additional seating, charter guests are able to easily take calls, send emails, or simply catch up with some reading amongst some seriously attractive surroundings.
The large floor-to-ceiling window directly behind the sleek office chair means that stunning views can also be enjoyed in this space.
The cabin itself is accessed through a short corridor to starboard which also provides access to both the dressing room and en-suite facilities.
Located in the middle of the cabin, a large bed with a dark wenge backboard offers style and comfort in equal measure, with a television screen surfacing from a forward facing cabinet should entertainment be needed.
With sliding doors found to both port and starboard of this cabin, it’s always possible to have a gentle breeze pass through when such an effect is desired.
It should also be mentioned that there is a ‘her’s’ cabin on the port side aft of the dressing room. In terms of charter purposes, this guest space could be occupied by a child whilst the parents take the master cabin.
The exterior section of the owner’s deck undoubtedly rivals those found on the bridge and main deck, with a large collection of furnishings presenting a luxurious environment for the principal charter guest to unwind in.
With informal coffee tables situated between generously proportioned sofas, there’s no question that it would be enlivening to return here following some time in either the lounge or office.
Spread across the main and lower decks, the remaining eight guest cabins on board superyacht Here Comes The Sun share the same quality finish as the master cabin as well as a flexibility which will nicely accommodate groups of both families and friends.
More specifically, with a total of three additional VIP staterooms on offer, and six doubles – two of which can be converted into twins – there’s no chance of difficulties arising when it comes to deciding who is sleeping where.
With the option to create cabins out of existing lounge space, superyacht Here Comes The Sun is certain to please every kind of party
No doubt the most innovative use of guest space is the way in which the salons attached to two of the doubles can be closed off and transformed into extra doubles. What this means, of course, is that smaller parties can enjoy the benefits of even more lounge space.
Altogether, superyacht Here Comes The Sun is capable of sleeping up to 12 guests whilst away on a private yacht charter vacation.
To take a walk around her guest spaces, as well as all of the communal areas on offer, be sure to spend some time taking the virtual tour below.
Heading out onto the sundeck, charter guests will find themselves immersed in a sunbather’s paradise. Indeed, with not only loungers but extra ‘nooks’ on offer, guests are able to both socialise and enjoy time to themselves when out in the surrounding climate.
With a glass sliding door towards the aft section of the deck, it’s also possible to encase the sundeck in order to allow guests to cool off after being out in the sun, with a cold cocktail sure to add a refreshing touch.
For the truly adventurous, an inflatable water slide can be attached to the sundeck to provide guests with the most fun means of accessing the water.
Measuring 6.8m X 3.4m, and with an incredible depth of 1.25m, the swimming pool featured on the main deck of superyacht Here Comes The Sun is the ultimate cool-off zone, and will certainly prove popular amongst both children and adults.
Nicely shaded, the feature is indisputably the crowning accomplishment of the main deck, and a day spent entirely in this area wouldn’t be a day wasted at all.
Lowered into the deck for even greater convenience, entering the swimming pool on the main deck could not be easier
A centre for rest and relaxation by the water, the beach club of superyacht Here Comes The Sun has the further advantage of balconies retracting off the port, aft, and starboard sides.
Allowing guests to socialise in style, or board tenders with great ease, this section of the motor yacht is sure to be the place everyone wants to be.
Whether guests choose to refresh themselves whilst looking out across their chosen cruising grounds, or indulge in the wellness facilities on offer, the beach club comfortably anticipates every last need of those on board.
It should also be mentioned that Here Comes The Sun benefits from enhanced soundproofing throughout the communal and guest spaces, as well as discreetly positioned crew corridors for an even greater and more discreet service.
Ultimately, she is the perfect charter yacht for both friends and families looking to escape in both comfort and style.
