Go make memories together...

Superyacht GENE MACHINE built by AMELS,
star of the FLIBS 2018.

Take the time to create unforgettable moments and you won’t regret it. Discover the wonders of the world with the ones you cherish the most, shaping the characters of the next generation with memories that will last a lifetime.



GENE MACHINE is an AMELS 180 delivered in Holland in 2013. Her American owner has enjoyed the most incredible vacations with his young family – making the most of his AMELS Limited Editions yacht to see the world. Sharing unforgettable moments and relishing the free spirit of yachting has made GENE MACHINE one of the world’s best known superyachts.

Exploring the Exumas, GENE MACHINE made the most of the picture perfect Bahamian cruising grounds.


Passion for yachting

Our special thanks to the owner and his family as well as the amazing GENE MACHINE crew for their generosity in sharing these memories.


“We’re lucky that GENE MACHINE's owner is adventurous and happy to share photos of the yacht and the places we go. It’s unusual in our industry, and people often think that GENE MACHINE must be for sale or charter, but she’s not! The owner and his family spend 5-6 months on board every year; he’s passionate about yachting and always keen to go beyond the basic Mediterranean itinerary.”
