The first Amels 80’s build journey is officially underway. On 17 May, the steel cutting of this all new 80-metre Amels Limited Editions took place at Damen Yachting’s hull building location in Galati, Romania. The yacht is to be available for delivery in 2025.

The Amels 80 was introduced earlier this year in an online launch.

‘For all of us at Damen Yachting, the steel cutting of the first Amels 80 is a really significant milestone,’ says Romke van der Linde, project manager of the first Amels 80 (8001). ‘It represents the first stage of the build and the start of this new design being transformed into reality. The Amels 80 is a very exciting project to be part of and we are all looking forward to seeing her through the build journey and watch as this new Amels Limited Editions comes to life.’

Hybrid technology

The Amels 80 continues the Amels Limited Editions designs of which more than forty have been delivered to date. This new 80-metre, featuring exterior design by Espen Øino, will be built with sustainable materials and leverage the most suitable and innovative hybrid technology available today. It has been engineered with the future in mind and the resulting design is modern and dynamic whilst still retaining the Amels DNA.

The custom interiors for the Amels 80 have been created by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, a Dutch studio. They have, in line with the Amels Limited Editions concept, designed the architectural basis for the interior to host a personalised layer of loose furniture and decorative elements.
