The Looks



Tim Heywood

British designer Tim Heywood, the acclaimed master of curves, created the AMELS 188’s beautiful and sweeping exterior lines. Athletic structures accentuate the signature Heywood shapely curves – promising a modern classic that will stand the test of time like no other.

“She’s a large yacht for her length, the optimum form of elegance and enjoyment. You always feel close to the sea thanks to generous outdoor spaces.”


The Brains

The four high-volume decks are spacious and airy with 6 staterooms for 12 guests and a smart layout that flows naturally. The AMELS Design team applied all their experience from almost 30 Limited Editions yachts to create the highest level of crew efficiency without sacrificing luxury spaces – that means more enjoyment and more privacy for you.

The Introduction

Strong and Safe

The best superyacht materials are steel and aluminium. Solid and durable, AMELS yachts are built to be collectors’ items, still sailing after 100 years.

“Building in steel is not easy, but the advantages of full-displacement comfort and lower noise and vibrations are certainly worth the effort.”

“The highest level of AMELS engineering and craftsmanship ensures safe passages worldwide with no risk to the yacht.”


The Future is Here

From raw metal to luxury finish – the transformation of the AMELS 188 is now underway at AMELS, the largest superyacht facility in the Netherlands and right in the heart of global superyacht excellence.

Your design choice

One of the great benefits of the Limited Editions concept is the freedom to choose your own interior designer and create your own individual vision of yachting at the highest level.

What experiences and influences will you bring to the AMELS 188? For example, AMELS invited the renowned design duo of Pascale Reymond and Andrew Langton to create their vision for the AMELS 188.
