The team at Amels and Damen Yachting is pleased to announce the delivery of the Amels 200 Moonstone. This second yacht to be delivered from the Amels 200 Limited Editions design features exterior design by Tim Heywood and custom interiors by Luxury Projects.

Captain Nathan Milicich has been part of the build team and will be at the helm of this 60-metre Amels 200 for her maiden trip.

"We'll be heading off to Athens to pick up the guests and from there, we'll be going onto the Aeolian islands, followed by Sicily and finishing up in Sardinia. So a nice long maiden voyage, checking out most of the Mediterranean. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the capabilities and seeing what Moonstone is made of."

The delivery of Moonstone comes just three months after the announcement of her sale and launch and is a wonderful example of the fast delivery that the Amels Limited Editions' build platform offers.

Captain Nathan explains, "I think the timeline line was really the thing that brought us to Amels. The fast delivery time. That Dutch pedigree is definitely a selling point for the Owner, and we've got a good product at the end of it."

Moonstone features custom interiors by Luxury Projects, who were commissioned for the concept interior design for the Amels 200.

Laura Pomponi, CEO and founder of the Ancona-based design studio in Italy, comments, "This was a project with a challenging timeline in terms of final Owners supplied goods. All the interior loose furniture and some of the décor lights were designed and ordered just three months before delivery to the new owners of Moonstone. We are very proud of the end result with on-time delivery and an installation of astonishing quality. The beautiful interior is exactly what we dreamed of thanks to the team effort of our dedicated Italian suppliers, Artisan Workshops, the Owner's team, the Shipyard and the Interiors Contractor."

The exterior design of the Amels 200 carries the Tim Heywood signature and is an evolution of the Amels 188 design. Tim explains how her originality allows her to stand out from other yachts of this size.

"I believe her delicate, fluid lines will prove to be timeless and she will still look as attractive in 50 years' time, as she does now. Her extended length and enlarged windows portray an elegant and sophisticated appearance, as well as elevating the functionality of her interior. This a harmonious design that sits securely in her environment, of which I am extremely proud."

The Amels 200 design shares the same naval architecture, high volume and hybrid electrical power technology as its predecessor, the Amels 188, as well as the four-deck elevator and air-conditioned gym on Sun Deck. Where the Amels 200 differentiates is with her elongated design which allows for larger aft decks and Swim Platform and full-height windows in the Owners Suite.

Amels and Damen Yachting Sales Manager Jorrit Pilaar has been involved in the project throughout the sales and build process.

"We are very proud to hand Moonstone over to her Owners. The collaboration with all parties involved has contributed to the success of this project. We wish her Owners and crew all the very best for their adventures on board."
