Brimming with rich Dutch history in building luxury superyachts, Amels and Damen yachting have celebrated over 100 years of pedigree and heritage. Damen Shipyards Group, created in 2019 boasts of a growing portfolio of Amels yachts. Most of the team at Damen Yachting are proud to come from a long line of shipbuilders where they were brought up with this tradition of local shipbuilding expertise. Amels began a small shipyard in 1918 where plenty of wooden boats to steel tugboats delivered. In 1991, the Damen family acquired Amels, yet retaining and preserving the Amels name and brand.
Since the move to Vlissingen in 2003, Damen and Amels have established the largest superyacht facility in the Netherlands. Many exciting projects followed such as the Amels Limited Editions range as well as Yacht Support. Imperial has a long-standing relationship with the Dutch shipyard, delivering over eight superyachts since 2009 as well as the addition of 120-metre superyacht PROJECT SIGNATURE. This collaboration will be the largest vessel built by the shipyard Amels and Damen and in the entire Netherlands. The range of superyachts in partnership with Imperial is a true testament to the shipyard's ability to create innovative, dynamic, and luxurious superyachts.
