|For centuries Holland has launched many great oceangoing ships. The AMELS family built its own first seakindly vessel in 1918, and the shipyard has built about 450 since. After a sea change, AMELS turned its expertise to creating only luxury yachts, launching its first in 1982. In 1991 AMELS joined the Damen Shipyards Group, absorbing more advanced
||technology and financial strength. Now AMELS builds and refits yachts in shared modern facilities of Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding, since 1875 builder of some 400 military and commercial ships. |
Through these deep historic connections AMELS has converted tradition into modern mastery.
