Romke van der Linde, Project Manager of the first Amels 80 (8001), explains the importance of this key moment for those who have been involved in the project so far. “For all of us at Damen Yachting, the steel cutting of the first Amels 80 is a really significant milestone. 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.”
This new 80-meter features exterior design by Espen Oeino and will be built with sustainable materials and leverage the most suitable and innovative hybrid technology available today.
“It turned out to be a very holistic design in the sense that everything seems to be right, starting with a very good layout. It’s a very clear and logical GA and I think we’ve managed to somehow reflect that in the exterior design with relatively simple lines. Simplicity in design does stand the test of time well and I like to think that this will be the case here as well,“ says Espen Oeino.
The custom interiors for the Amels 80 have been created by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design. They have, in line with the Amels Limited Editions concept, designed the architectural basis for the interior to host a personalized layer of loose furniture and decorative elements.
“It’s a very neutral and natural palette. Materials are treated in such a way that the natural characteristics remain as pure as possible. The style is distinctive and yet still allows plenty of room for owners to customize and add their personal style,” says Paul Costerus, Lead Designer Sinot.
The next build milestone on the calendar for the Amels 8001 is the keel laying which is scheduled to take place next month.
The delivery of the Amels 8001 is planned in 2025.
