The hull and superstructure of the Amels 120 Full Custom has arrived at the Damen Yachting shipyard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, for outfitting. It marks the start of the final construction phase of this 120-metre superyacht, which is currently the largest superyacht in-build in the Netherlands.

The arrival in Vlissingen provides a first look at the design of this confidential project. In addition to being the largest superyacht in-build in the Netherlands, it is also the largest Amels to be built to date. The Amels 120 is scheduled for delivery in 2025.

It features a striking five-deck exterior design by Espen Øino and Naval Architecture by Damen Yachting. Details regarding the custom interiors remain private. The yacht was launched at the Amels hull building facility at Damen Shipyards Galati one month ago.

Future flagship

‘The launch of the hull was an emotional yet incredible moment for all of those who have played such an integral part in the realisation of the Amels 120 Full Custom so far,’ says Amels Project Manager Jeroen Waalewijn. ‘To see her out on the water and to now have her here in Vlissingen is a testament to the entire project team. We look forward to this next stage in her build journey as we transform her into our future flagship.’

As the future flagship of Damen Yachting, this 120-metre incorporates the latest in design and technology features. To limit its impact on the environment, the superyacht will be powered by diesel-electric engines and Azipod electric propulsion. It is set to operate with the lowest levels of noise and vibration ever recorded on a yacht of this size.
