Dutch yacht builder Amels is adding a 188-foot model to its popular Limited Editions series, which includes six models in a range from 180 to 272 feet length overall.
Hull No. 1 of the Amels 188 is scheduled for delivery in spring 2018. Like other Amels Limited Editions yachts, the 188 is designed by Tim Heywood.
Details unveiled at the recent Monaco Yacht Show include the first-ever hybrid-electric power system engineered into a Limited Editions model from the project’s start. The system is meant to increase efficiency and eco-friendliness while reducing cost of ownership.
Interior design will be by Pascale Reymond and Andrew Langton. The yacht is expected to house a 322-square-foot beach club, a full-beam owner’s suite spanning nearly 860 square feet and including a folding balcony, and a “wellness center” with gymnasium, sauna and Turkish steam shower.
