Damen’s first Amels 80 is afloat. Measuring 80 metres in length, the new hull and superstructure was seen outside of its hull build shed for the first time since the concept was introduced in March 2022.

Preparations are now underway for its journey from the build facility in Galati, Romania, to Damen Yachting’s main shipyard in the Netherlands for final outfitting.

This next-generation Amels Limited Editions, and the first of the most recent designs to be introduced, is on track to be delivered to its owner in 2025. Since selling the yacht exactly one year ago, the team at Burgess has remained involved in the build process to represent the owner.

‘Taking the Amels Limited Editions platform as a superior baseline, the owner has embellished the design in specific areas making the yacht a truly custom vessel,’ says Sean Bianchi, partner-head of Burgess New Construction, Naval Architect.

Damen Yachting continues to evolve its products and, for many years, has perfected the Limited Editions superyachts and their various sizes and designs. With the classic Limited Edition designs still a firm favourite of many, the range increased in 2019 with the Amels 60 and now the largest Limited Editions yacht to date, the Amels 80.

In keeping with the Amels DNA, designer Espen Øino created a holistic and modern exterior design. A key factor of the next-generation design is that it features sustainable materials and innovative hybrid technology. Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design is the design studio behind the first Amels 80’s custom interiors.

Other features on board the Amels 80 include an impressive 200-m2 sun deck, a waterside beach club which opens on three sides with a nearby wellness and spa, a dedicated owner’s Deck and large framed windows for panoramic views on the main deck. The yacht also houses a multitude of watercraft and toys and a helicopter landing area.
