52.30-metre GRACE represents a major milestone for Imperial: not only the very first collaboration between Dutch-based shipyard Amels and Imperial, but the very first vessel over 50-metre length to be launched by Imperial. Built under our strict supervision of Imperial, where we acted as Build Supervisor and Owner’s Representative, GRACE is a versatile superyacht part of the Amels 171 Limited Edition series. With an exterior design from Tim Heywood and inetrior created by the hand of Nuvolari Lenard, GRACE is part of this legendary series known as the world’s best-selling 55-metre superyacht since 2007, the Amels Limited Edition series. The full displacement hull and her large volume of 649 GT provide high comfort with ocean-going performance to discover destinations all over the world, together with a modern classic design.
GRACE remains as another exclusive collaboration between Imperial, Amels and famous design studios like Tim Heywood or Nuvolari Lenard. With basic parameters set by Amels, the rest of the yacht’s design is open to personalisation, including three possible interior designs for the future Owner. Her wide outdoor spaces are among the major specificities of GRACE and the Amels 171 Limited Editions in general. From the generous swim platform and garage to the Main deck aft with a large lounge seating area with exterior sets done by Summit and custom made furniture by Metrica, your first steps on board already give the tone of her perfect quality.

Going up to the panoramic Sun deck with Jacuzzi, bar and an extra option for al-fresco dinners with a table for 10 persons. The deep width of the space authorizes to display here exercise equipment.
GRACE’s interior offers rich dark colours reflected by wengé wood and dark leather, and the light colours are shown by white oak, alcantara fabric and light capria leather. Accents are given by a high gloss varnish on the wood. Custom made fittings provide distinguished and original detailing throughout the interior.
