AMELS and DAMEN to host four debuts at the Monaco Yacht Show

Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS is proud to introduce 74-metre NEW SECRET, one of the largest and most prestigious superyacht debuts at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. AMELS will also welcome the newly delivered 55-metre LILI to the famous event, while DAMEN will display its new generation of Yacht Support vessels GAME CHANGER and NEW FRONTIERS in Port Hercules from 27 to 30 September.

NEW SECRET – AMELS 242 showcase

The 74-metre AMELS 242 from the Limited Editions range is the second of four AMELS 242 yachts now delivered or in build. NEW SECRET has an exterior design by Tim Heywood and the Owners’ choice of Winch Design for the custom interiors in a sophisticated modern style.

NEW SECRET was delivered in May 2017 and has since cruised Norway and the Western Mediterranean. The Owners have kindly agreed to bring NEW SECRET to the Monaco Yacht Show as a showcase for the AMELS Limited Editions range. NEW SECRET is not for sale or charter and the superyacht will be open to a limited number of exclusive visits by appointment with AMELS.

LILI – AMELS 180 showcase

On display at the prime T-Central location, LILI is a wonderful showcase of the AMELS Limited Editions range. She is a highly customised 55-metre AMELS 180; the first to feature a Bridge Deck Master Suite. LILI has quickly proven popular as a charter yacht with IMPERIAL as Central Agent. AMELS is exhibiting LILI together with IMPERIAL, offering clients the most exclusive high-end charter experiences with the very highest AMELS quality and finishing.

AMELS delivered LILI in June 2017, just over 12 months after her sale in May 2016. IMPERIAL acted as broker for the sale, Owner’s Representative and Construction Supervisor. Among the Owner-requested features, LILI has a unique Tim Heywood exterior colour scheme, extended Sun Deck with an extra-large 4-metre swimming pool, and custom interiors by designer Laura Sessa.

NEW FRONTIERS – DAMEN’s new generation adventure yacht support

Alongside the AMELS superyacht LILI on T-Central, the 55-metre NEW FRONTIERS is DAMEN’s latest project — the culmination of nearly 10 years of DAMEN Yacht Support design and engineering experience. NEW FRONTIERS is currently completing outfitting at DAMEN’s yard in the Netherlands before heading directly to Monaco.

NEW FRONTIERS will take her Owner into new territory with a blend of adventure and superyacht support functions. This is a new evolution in the Yacht Support range featuring for the first time accommodation for 6 guests – as well as the Yacht Support functionality with a large deck crane and accommodation for 4 staff, pilots, security or guides.

GAME CHANGER – DAMEN’s new generation yacht support with Helicopter Hangar

GAME CHANGER is DAMEN’s latest 70-metre Yacht Support vessel which now features the much-requested all-weather protected helicopter hangar. Berthed at the Monaco Yacht Show next to the AMELS 242 NEW SECRET, GAME CHANGER stands out with a superyacht quality finish, offering a perfect combination of style and capability to support the mother yacht.

Delivered in early summer 2017, GAME CHANGER has offices, facilities and accommodation for 23 staff, pilots, security and crew. The vessel also has a fully certified helideck, deck space for tenders and toys, below deck space for cargo, dive centre or owner-specific function. It can also carry a huge amount of extra provisions, fuel (marine, aviation and petrol), luggage and spare parts.

AMELS and DAMEN stand – Full Custom, Refit and SeaXplorer

AMELS will welcome visitors at its traditional stand location on T-Central. Visitors are welcome to see models of the 55 to 83-metre Limited Editions range, including the new AMELS 206, and discuss new AMELS Full Custom yachts and AMELS Refit projects. The DAMEN team will be on hand to discuss the Yacht Support range of vessels as well as the SeaXplorer range of luxury expedition yachts, including the recently sold SeaXplorer 75 and the newest member of the range, the SeaXplorer 55.
