  1. Amels launch first unit of the LE199 series

    Dutch yard Amels kicked off 2013 with the launching of not only their first yacht for the year but also the first yacht of the Limited Edition 199 line. While a name has not been disclosed by Amels, the Tim Heywood design has been widely refered to as "Event". Hull 5501 bears interior by Laura Sessa with the ability to sleep as many as twelve guests and fourteen crew plus the captain. The yacht's bow gives her a distinct appeal and one that isn't that unfamiliar from Amels. The straight bow is somewhat reminiscent of Amels Sea-Axe line of Fast Support Shadow vessels.
  2. The first LE199 boasts many features that you would expect on a 60-meter superyacht. Many of the superyacht's notable features are inclusive of a touch and go helipad that is located on the bow -forward of the bridge- and an enclosed lounge on the sun deck. Additionally there is a sizable beach-club in the aft hull that spills out onto the yachts' bathing platform and there are two large folding balconies located amidships. The beach-club boasts an enormous swim platform, retractable stairs a Sauna, a steam shower and the latest gym equipment. Her tenders are stored up front in the forward bow in a garage behind flush-fitting gull doors.

    The new superyacht is expected to run at a top speed of 16.5-knots being fed by 149,000 LT capacity fuel tanks. She has been built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure with Naval Architecture coming from Amels themselves. The stylish Heywood design comes in at just shy of 200-feet LOA (198'.98'') with a handy beam of 33.79-feet (10.30-meters). Her maximum draft is around 3.45-meters. When hull 5501 is delivered to her owner, she is expected to be thrusted into the charter market for late Spring/Summer season.
