The second hull in Amels’ new line of 60 metre Limited Editions superyachts has been rolled out of the shed and into the water at Amels and Damen Yachting’s Vlissingen facilities. Known only as Project Witchcraft, the superyacht will now enter the final build phase ahead of delivery in the Autumn of this year.
The yacht marks the second Limited Editions 60 designed by Espen Øino, and according to Amels the launch has been met with “much anticipation”. Key design features of Project Witchcraft include customised windows and a light-drenched interior that was chosen by the owner.

The project was sold by Moran Yacht & Ship, who also negotiated the technical specification and oversaw the complete construction of the vessel. “We are truly excited to see Project Witchcraft emerge from the finishing shed and into the water for the first time,” commented a representative from Moran. “This milestone is always a special moment in the construction schedule. Moran Yacht & Ship is very proud of the many customizations we were able to implement into this platform, which is a testament to the Damen Yachting engineering and production team.”
He added, “the entire owner’s team is looking forward to the final stages of production and moving towards another successful delivery.”
Project Witchcraft represents the 7th collaboration between Moran and the Amels shipyard, and is one of nine projects that the company is currently handling.

Project Witchcraft features a gross tonnage of 830 GT and accommodates 12 guests and 12 crew. The yacht boasts space for a 9-metre tender to be stored in the foredeck, and there is “an emphasis on space” across all her exterior areas, according to the yard. Power comes from hybrid propulsion.
“Watching 6002 head outside for the first time signifies everything the team has achieved since she arrived here in Vlissingen last July. And by team, I mean everyone involved in making this milestone happen – the Damen Yachting team, the owner’s team and all our co-workers,” commented Arie Midavaine, project manager at Damen Yachting.
“It’s down to the great collaboration between all of these parties that we are standing here admiring this stunning new 60-metre in the daylight and open air. I am looking forward to the final outfitting phase now and getting her out on the water!”
