Damen Shipyards Group’s yachting division Amels is working on 26 yacht projects at its new build and hull building facilities in Vlissingen. This includes the hull of a 78-metre Full Custom yacht. When completed in 2021, the yacht will be the largest Amels to date.

Right now, twelve yachts are at the busy Vlissingen hub, including both the Vlissingen City yard and the Vlissingen East yard. In addition to the Full Custom yacht, these are four Amels Limited Editions yachts, two Damen SeaXplorers and five refits. In total, Amels has 26 yacht projects underway.

78-metre Full Custom Yacht

In early January, the hull of the 78-metre Amels Full Custom project arrived for outfitting from the hull builder, Damen Shipyards Galati on the Danube river. When completed in 2021, the 2850 Gross Tonnage yacht will be larger than the current Amels flagship – the 83-metre Here comes the sun, which has a 2827 Gross Tonnage.

The yacht is the Dutch yacht builder’s first fully custom built yacht since introducing its Amels Limited Editions range in 2005.
