The new Amels 80 Superyacht


One of the most in-demand yards in Europe introduced their largest model to date, the Amels 80. While the yard built and refitted larger yachts, it’s the first time such a model is introduced on a semi-custom platform. Back 20 years ago, building a 50m yacht would have been a large yacht and you would have had to build custom. In today’s world with more billionaires than ever before, better infrastructure for yachts and an appetite for travel, the world of UHNWI is seeing a new revolution, the introduction of semi-custom yachts of 80m!

The Amels 80 is probably the best yacht in this class, offering all the luxuries you would imagine from a yacht this size while coming for a limited engineering cost. The advantage of building semi-custom is that design and engineering costs are shared across the multiple yachts that will be built on the platform.

Her exterior comes with a simply stunning beach club, ideal to jump in the water. Opening on each side and bathed in natural light just under the glass-bottom pool of the main deck, the beach club truly connects the owner to the water. It comes with a wellness area dedicated to full relaxation. The bow offers a large lounge with ahead a multi-purpose area, that can carry a helicopter, transform into a basketball court or offer a dancefloor. The sundeck is the largest in her class, offering a stunning on-deck spa facing forward.

Inside you will find accommodation for up to 14 guests across 7 suites, ideal to accommodate a large family or a group of friends. The master suite is ideally located on the upper deck, with direct access to the bow, a private terrasse and a hot tub. The remaining guest suites are located on the main deck, each with an ensuite bathroom. Among her most notable features inside you will find a fully equipped gym, ideal to stay in shape during your stay on the yacht as well as a movie theatre, to entertain the kids for the evening.

The yacht is a true marvel of engineering coming from the drawing boards of Espen Oeino for the exterior and Sinot for the interior. The first unit is currently in build in Holland.
