Amels believes that yachting is about enjoying the finest moments in life with friends and family; everything the shipyard does, this guiding thought is in its mind. How Amels built its DNA? In the 14th century, shipwrights started settling in Vlissingen, Netherlands, which became the first centre of shipbuilding in the country. That tradition has endured to the present day, with the skills and expertise being handed from generation to generation for more than 700 years. Many of Amels’ employees descend from a long line of boatbuilders, the proud family tradition being handed from father to son. Yacht building is in their DNA.

Yachts builder since 1918, it is only in 1982 with the construction of KATALINA that Amels settled out on a more specialised path. Among the successful designs boasts by the Dutch manufacturer, the very successful Limited Editions concept has a place of choice, now providing six designs ranging in size from 55 to 83 metres, all created by the legendary designer Tim Heywood. The choice of interior designer is completely up to the Owner, with endless customisation possibilities. The shipyard has delivered 100% of its Limited Editions yachts on time and on budget, successfully working together with Imperial on the first Amels 199 World Superyacht Award winner EVENT, as well as the beautiful ASTRA, APOLLO, and BEL ABRI.

Alongside its Limited Editions range, the Dutch shipyard also build Full Custom in the 80 to 110-metre segment, creating true one-off yachts at the highest level with all renowned designers. With Amels and Imperial you have found two companies who understand that the successful delivery of your yacht is not the end of the project. Rather, it’s just the beginning of a long friendship.

In parallel, Amels Refit has an outstanding reputation for renewing yachts to the highest quality. The Amels Refit team offers the full range of disciplines and access to covered drydock facilities up to 215 meters.

Probably the most iconic superyacht built by Amels and Imperial: EVENT, ultimate luxury motor yacht, part of the Amels 199 Limited Edition series.

Amels 180 Limited Edition series delivered in 2017, LILI sets new standards in her range with an unique, bespoke layout and a deeper social behavior.

Part of the Amels 180 Limited Editions range, ASTRA is a great achievement from the successful collaboration between the shipyard and Imperial.

The very first collaboration between Amels and Imperial on the Amels 180 Limited Editions serie gave birth to APOLLO, 54m superyacht.

Amels and Imperial launched together in 2010 BEL ABRI, Amels 171 Limited Editions superyacht, the first star of the Imperial delivered projects.

Where it all starts: in 2009, Imperial delivered its first 50m superyacht together with Amels, christened GRACE.
