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.
