Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show, the innovative 57.70-metre AMELS 188 (970 GT) combines advanced solutions including hybrid electrical power with the modern elegance and timeless pedigree of designer Tim Heywood. The Dutch luxury yacht builder’s completely new superyacht joins the 55 to 83-metre Limited Editions range, now with six unique designs all built to the absolute highest AMELS quality.

As details emerged during the summer, the buzz around the AMELS 188 built quickly. The yard has nearly completed the engineering phase of the AMELS 188, which has a preliminary scheduled delivery in Spring 2018. Managing Director Rob Luijendijk says AMELS is already handling a number of serious enquiries.

“Our clients have been tremendously excited about this yacht,” he says. “If you look at the 55-metre AMELS 180 and the 60-metre AMELS 199, they are both unique and very successful designs. The 57.70-metre AMELS 188 fits perfectly between these two yachts, bringing something entirely new to a market segment that we have traditionally show leadership in.”
