VIDEO: Amels Launches 55-metre Superyacht Nomad

Just five months after the sale of a new 180-ft Amels 180 from the Amels Limited Editions range was announced, the 55-metre yacht named Nomad has emerged from the Dutch luxury yacht builder’s yard in Vlissingen.

The Nomad is the second Amels 180 to be launched this year. The Amels Limited Editions seek to combine individual design choices with fast delivery.

Stable Seakeeping

The Amels 180 has proven full displacement naval architecture with a large volume (671 GT), offering strong and stable seakeeping behaviour for excellent comfort and global range. The logical layout and properly-sized storage for equipment is a direct result of the larger volume, ensuring no compromise for journeys requiring extended periods at sea.

Colour Scheme and Interior

The owner created the bespoke colour scheme in collaboration with exterior designer Tim Heywood and the Amels design team, with a blue tone hull and anthracite grey superstructure for an uninterrupted geometry highlighting the long lines on Bridge Deck and Sun Deck. 

The custom interiors are by the owner’s choice of designer Bonesteel Trout Hall, a California-based boutique residential studio, working in collaboration with Amels interior specialists. The vessel boasts an 180 m2 sun deck and the main deck owners suite has a folding balcony, plus a wide-body bridge deck sky lounge.
