A new 74-metre Amels 242 emerged from the Amels and Damen Yachting drydock in the Netherlands last week. Known as Project Shadow, the Tim Heywood-designed Amels Limited Editions yacht is in the final phase of outfitting before its delivery later this year.

Following the sale announcement earlier this year, Moran Yacht & Ship’s new build team has been supervising the completion. The owners have been closely involved in tailoring the yacht to their personal requirements including an Ice Blue hull colour and custom interiors by Winch Design.


The yacht is equipped with the latest IMO Tier III clean emissions power and propulsion package. The Amels 242 also features a dedicated owners deck with foredeck jacuzzi and an increased capacity helicopter deck.

The Amels 242 is the sixth from the 74-metre design in the Limited Editions range. The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts offers a proven technical platform with custom interiors. Engineering and construction of the yachts start before an owner has been found. This can reduce delivery time from several years to as little as a few months according to Amels. The yacht builder has delivered more than forty Limited Editions yachts since 2005.
