Transforming into reality: First steel cut for new Amels 80

First steel cut for new Amels 80

First introduced to the market in 2022, the 80-metre Amels Limited Editions superyacht is now in build for delivery in 2025.

Steel cutting of the first 80-metre Amels 80 is underway.

After 2 years of detailed design, the project team for yard number 8001 was very excited to cut the first steel plates at the hull-building yard at the end of May. Using plasma cutting machines, the builders will use high-precision engineering and award-winning welding expertise to assemble the Amels 80 hull. Once the hull building is completed, the hull will move to the outfitting yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. The yacht will be delivered in 2025.


Leading the Amels 8001 team is one of themost experienced Amels project managers - Romke van der Linde. He explains the importance of this key moment for those who have been involved in the project so far.

“For all of us at Damen Yachting, the steel cutting of the first Amels 80 is a really significant milestone. It represents the first stage of the build and the start of this new design being transformed into reality. The Amels 80 is a very exciting project to be part of and we are all looking forward to seeing her through the build journey and watch as this new Amels Limited Editions comes to life.”
