AMELS 272, The Marriage of Aluminium and Steel

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his week AMELS successfully completed the heaviest crane lift ever at its yard in Vlissingen. Three cranes in the newly commissioned 200-metre drydock lifted the 120 tonne aluminium superstructure over the 83-metre hull of the first AMELS 272. Fitting together with incredible precision, the ‘marriage’ of aluminium and steel is now being carefully welded by skilled craftsmen. A great example of AMELS’ mastery of modern Dutch yachtbuilding techniques for large superyachts. More updates to follow as the build progresses.
