Dutch yard Amels has confirmed that it sold a model in its Amels 180 Limited Editions range at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show earlier in November.
Already under construction, the yacht is due to be delivered in mid-2019.
She will feature a bespoke colour scheme outlined by the owner, designed in collaboration with exterior designer Tim Heywood and the yard’s in-house design team.
According to Amels, the blue hull and “anthracite grey” superstructure will exacerbate “long lines of the bridge sun decks”.
California-based boutique residential studio Bonesteel Trout Hall will implement the yacht’s custom interiors, which have been specifically selected by the owner, in conjunction with the in-house designers.
Rutger Dolk, Amels sales manager, said, “The owner was looking for proven ocean-going performance so he and his family can enjoy destinations around the world.
“Creating such a bespoke yachting experience while still offering delivery in less than a year is a great compliment to our design and project teams, and demonstrates how well our Limited Editions approach works.”
Key features aboard the 180 include a 190-square-metre sun deck, bridge deck sky lounge and main-deck owner’s suite, equipped with a folding balcony.
Accommodation is for 12 guests across six staterooms, while the crew quarters can house the same number of staff.
Building has already commenced on the next available Amels 180, with a summer 2020 delivery pencilled in.
