Five years after taking delivery, the owner of the Amels-built megayacht Ilona wanted more. Specifically, he wanted more ways of making his megayacht more enjoyable. An eight-month stay at Amels, which wrapped up last month and which marked the yard’s 37th refit, made it happen.

When I first saw Sarah, her towering aluminum superstructure had just been lifted into place atop an enormous steel hull at the Makkum yard of Amels Holland. Even at that early stage of construction, this 203-foot motoryacht's potential was obvious as I climbed the outside staging on a temperate May afternoon.
She looks quite sleek afloat, thanks to clever styling by Donald Starkey, but Sarah is actually five decks high. Two full decks fill the hull from tank top to main deck. The superstructure is three decks, although the uppermost is relatively small.
