Amels Launches Another 180

The 700-ton yacht, designed by Tim Heywood, is now afloat after ‘RoFlo’ maneuvers.

Amels has launched another in its 180-foot series. The Tim Heywood design was first moved from a climate-controlled dry dock onto a floating pontoon, then was moved to a floating dry dock that was submerged to let the yacht float. Amels calls the process "RoFlo." This slide show demonstrates the process.
