“We start building in advance, so we can offer you shorter delivery times with proven high performance, quality and reliability and lots of customisation options.”

The 74-metre AMELS 242 (242 ft) is a six deck, full displacement luxury yacht. We invested heavily her naval architecture to ensure outstanding seakeeping, manoeuvrability and whisper quiet engineering.

The master of exteriors

Renowned designer Tim Heywood is the master behind the AMELS 242’s streamlined exterior lines. He created well-balanced proportions and slim volume with attractive details like the long curve of her bridge wing stations.

“She exhibits strong athletic feminine curves, lots of beautiful curves, lots of strengths.”

Interior Inspiration

We asked Winch Design to create a brand new interior concept for the AMELS 242. Based in London, Winch Design has developed many interior designs for AMELS clients.
