Amels and H2 Yacht Design unveiled together during the Monaco Yacht Show 2017, in scale model at the Amels booth, a radical and fully-customised superyacht project based on a technical platform that has been developed by the Amels Design team: the 111-metre-long POLLUX. The flowing style of the ocean-going giant was concepted by the team at H2 Yacht Design, with a view to creating a seven-deck superyacht with a huge volume of 4,750GT! From the initial renderings, a curvy and sculpted profile is revealed that is accentuated by duo-tone paint for an elegant yet powerful aesthetic. The metallic silver and jet black gloss superstructure with high-polish stainless-steel grill and cloud white hull compliment the edges, which play with light and create an interesting new design direction for the Amels custom fleet. Hans Konings, Amels Design Manager: “Our top team of yacht-building experts has long experience collaborating with world-renowned designers and architects. We have a deep understanding of shipbuilding and our strong connections with classification societies and flag states. However you imagine your Amels Full Custom yacht, you can be sure of the most advanced design and engineering with our absolute highest quality.” Jonny Horsfield, Director of H2 Yacht Design, explains: “Our ambition was a design that drew on the yard DNA and heritage, but didn’t simply reproduce existing details. We have looked forward to the future design direction of the Amels fleet, whilst maintaining a timeless look that captures the pinnacle of Amels yacht-building.” This style is matched by the on-board space and lifestyle: with a sun deck pool forward and the large firepit outdoor lounge on sun deck aft, POLLUX’s 20 guests can enjoy panoramic sea vistas. Designed to meet Passenger Yacht Code regulations, POLLUX would host 47 crew + Captain, who can discreetly access all parts of the vessel, providing the very highest levels of service, entertainment and hospitality. We look forward to seeing this remarkable superyacht concept coming to life at the yard facilities, confirming our Dutch partner’s firm footing in the superyacht industry as a top player and tree-shaker for all things superyacht!
