Preview Monaco 2016 | The yacht he wanted. Amels presents the 55-metre ELIXIR

[dropcap]D[/dropcap]elivered in June 2016, the enchanting new 55-metre ELIXIR by Dutch shipyard Amels will make her debut at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show. Created with the successful AMELS 180 design, ELIXIR was ordered and delivered just in 8 months and it is the 6th yacht built in the 55 to 83-metre AMELS Limited Editions range (180 to 272 ft).

The AMELS Limited Editions project meant ELIXIR’s Owner was able to create the very personal and characteristic yacht he wanted, but much more quickly than a full custom build. The Owner collaborated with exterior designer Tim Heywood and interior designer Laura Sessa to create ELIXIR’s holistic design full of eccentric contrasts: dark meets light; masculine worldliness meets curvaceous elegance; relaxed comfort meets clean contemporary style.

AMELS delivered ELIXIR with Dutch top quality, on budget and more than a week ahead of schedule. With the Owner on board, ELIXIR spent the summer cruising the Mediterranean. The superyacht is also available for charter with Y.CO.
