Project Amels 242: 13th collaboration between Imperial and Amels & Damen Yachting

Project Amels 242 Skipper ONDECK

Imperial is proud to confirm the sale of a new Amels 242, part of the Limited Editions Range designed by the iconic Tim Heywood.

The 74-metre superyacht will be delivered in the spring of 2024. Imperial is acting as Owners Representative and will supervise the construction period until the completion of the build. This project marks the thirteenth collaboration between Amels and Imperial.

The Amels 242 superyacht will include a wide array of custom features tailored by the Owner. This project is for a repeat Amels client, which shows Amels technical capabilities for a vessel of this size and fast delivery. The superyacht incorporates innovative modifications to the stern for a modern design as well as integrated hydraulic swim stairs. In addition, the exterior colour scheme will set this Amels 242 apart with the elegant empress blue hull, and snow-white superstructure complemented by an anthracite grey mast. The superyacht’s custom interiors have been appointed to Winch Design for a contemporary feel.

“Amels 242 is our latest groundbreaking project to accompany our successful collaboration between Imperial and Amels. After being partners for over a decade, and thirteen projects later, this current construction epitomises the high standards which Amels are proud to represent under the construction supervision of Imperial. Further, by acting as the Owner’s Representative and Project Manager for this new construction, Imperial works diligently to ensure that this project is delivered seamlessly, and in accordance with Imperial’s continued drive for ground-breaking projects and sustainable excellence in the yacht industry” states Julia Stewart, Imperial Director.

Damen Yachting Sales Director, Rob Luijendijk quotes “we are delighted to have sold this latest Amels 242. This design has captured the imagination of many clients and this one, in particular, is a great example of the Limited Editions concept. The client will receive delivery of their brand new 74-metre yacht in just 2 ½ years and has still been able to customise many aspects to create a yacht that suits their specific requirements. The entire team at Damen Yachting is looking forward to working with Imperial during the build of this unique project and delivering this Amels 242 to her Owner in 2024.”
