Superyacht Yard Signs Two New Orders

Things are looking up in the superyacht market and the market place is beginning to show the signs the industry has been waiting for.  Build slots are being filled and some yards are reporting that they are operating to 100% of the capacity.
One such is the Dutch superyacht builder Amels that has sold two more yachts from their LIMITED EDITIONS range.
Both orders are for the semi custom 177 designed by Tim Heywood.
The sales came off the back of a very successful Monaco Yacht Show for the Vlissingen-based yard, already operating at 100% capacity.
Both new yachts are to have their interiors styled by Laura Sessa from Italy, although she has been commissioned to produce very distinct and individual styles for each yacht.
The sales were orchestrated by Moran Yacht & Ship and conclude a busy and productive year for the yard,
Currently there are twelve projects under way, and the next delivery will be the first 212, the design collaboration by Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch. The keel has been laid for Hull No.1 of the 199, and not far over the horizon is the launch of the 242, the largest yet conceived in the range. (Video’s of models can viewed on
