The team at Damen Yachting is delighted to confirm the sale of the first Amels 80. This all-new 80-metre (261 ft) Amels Limited Editions is scheduled for delivery to her new Owner in 2025.

BURGESS represented the Owner in the sale of this brand new Amels design which was unveiled to the industry earlier this year. "We are delighted to have worked as a team here at Burgess to provide our client with a seamless experience. After sourcing the right new build, the team has now been instructed to provide technical services and act as the project manager for the entire build process," says Ed Beckett, New Build Sales, Burgess. "We are delighted to be working with Amels, Espen diameterino and Sinot Yacht Design."

The Amels 80, which features exterior design by Espen diameterino and custom interiors by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, is a modern and dynamic yacht which incorporates over a century of yacht building experience. Features include an impressive 200 square metres (2,153 sq ft) Sun Deck, a cleverly designed Waterside Beach Club which opens up on three sides and includes Wellness and Spa, huge framed panoramic views over the ocean on Main Deck and a dedicated Owners Deck. The yacht has also been designed to a multitude of watercraft and toys and there is a foredeck helicopter landing area.

Espen diameterino, who is a trusted Amels collaborator, explains what makes the Amels 80 design so special. "The Amels 80 is a design that will not age. Her modern strong lines will look as good in 10 years as the day she departs the yard. She is a big ship, full of features, with an impressive interior volume at 2,175 Gross Tonnage. She is everything and more that you will expect from an 80-metre yacht. There is a sense of scale, but nothing is wasted."

Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design are the studio behind the concept interiors for the Amels 80 and are also the studio of choice for the new Owner. "The Amels 80 marks the first collaboration between Sinot and Amels. A project which provided us with the opportunity to develop something truly unique. You will feel at home from the moment you step on board."

Rose Damen, Managing Director of Damen Yachting comments, "We are incredibly pleased to be sharing the news that the first Amels 80 has sold. This new Limited Editions design really reflects our continuous drive to adapt and evolve to ensure that we continue to reshape our pedigree, experience, and knowhow for future generations. We very much look forward to continuing the build journey with our client and the team at BURGESS. This is a proud moment indeed for everyone who has been involved in the project so far."
