The team at Amels and Damen Yachting together with Moran Yacht & Ship has sold a new 74-metre Amels 242, Project Shadow, for delivery in autumn 2021. The Amels 242 is the sixth from the 74-metre design in the Limited Editions range.

The Tim Heywood designed yacht from the Dutch builder’s Limited Editions range will be completed with an interior by Winch Design.

Moran Yacht & Ship’s new build team will also supervise the completion and delivery of the yacht this year. It is the second 60-metre plus Amels superyacht signed by Moran Yacht & Ship in the last twelve months.

‘We have a very challenging project to achieve all the owners’ requests in a short timeframe,’ says Damen Yachting Managing Director Rose Damen. ‘However we know the boat very well and we have an excellent and experienced project team working on the yacht together with the owners’ team and our co-makers. I’m extremely confident that we will deliver another beautiful Limited Editions yacht on time and on budget for her owners.’

Amels Limited Editions range

The Amels Limited Editions range of superyachts offers a proven technical platform with custom interiors. The builder has delivered forty Limited Editions yachts since 2005. The innovative business model of upfront investment in engineering and construction, while maximising customisation, represents the perfect balance between full custom and semi-custom – and reduces delivery time from several years to as little as a few months.
