LILI christened

LILI christened


This wonder is now ready to amaze all who board her: the 55-metre superyacht LILI, the new iconic Amels 180 Limited Editions motor yacht, was christened on Friday 23rd June at Amels' headquarters in Vlissingen (Netherlands) during a special event where Amels, Laura Sessa and Imperial teams celebrated the delivery of this incredible new project. Her season will start immediately, with charter trips scheduled in Norway in July, and LILI has already been announced for winter 2017/2018, with charter options available in the Indian Ocean and Thailand. The ceremony brought together Amels CEO Rob Luijendijk, renowned interior designer Laura Sessa and Imperial CEO Evgeniy Kochman. Once officially christened by the talented Italian designer, the time was right to recall that Imperial is one of the most active partners of the Dutch shipyard, with more than eight hulls delivered jointly by Imperial and Amels since 2009. The delivery of LILI, with Imperial acting as Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor, confirms the successful collaboration between Imperial and the renowned Dutch shipyard, resulting in superyacht projects  such as BEL ABRI (52m), ASTRA (55m), EVENT (60m), or the state-of-the-art Damen Yacht Support Vessel 6711 (67m); all are the result of this fruitful partnership. Delivered less than one year after her official announcement, LILI confirms the excellent work relationships and expert knowledge gained by Imperial and Amels over the last eight years. Ready to rock the charter market, LILI is already highly soughtafter: while her Norway trips are almost fully booked, she is offering options for West Mediterranean charter trips later this summer.  However, her charter schedule remains open for this winter season 2017/2018, as LILI will cruise the Indian Ocean and Thailand waters. Remarkable for her unique "Castle Tan" hull paint or her bespoke 6-cabin layout offering, two master cabins and four guest cabins, LILI is also the perfect social charter superyacht, thanks to her extended sun deck fitted with a four-metre swimming-pool and large exterior areas for a total living space exceeding 175sqm. This latest extraordinary addition to the highly popular Amels 180 Limited Editions series is ready to redefine leisure at sea.
