The AMELS 177 is an evolution of the AMELS 171 first introduced as part of the LIMITED EDITIONS range in 2005,” explains YPI Broker Will Allen. “Since then owners have taken full advantage of the concept's inherent freedom for customisation. Now the AMELS 177 range, with its lengthened hull, allows for a sleeker profile and creates a lot more space.”

British yacht designer, Tim Heywood drew the lines for both the AMELS 171 and 177. "The additional two metres serve both aesthetic and functionality purposes," he explained. "The lengthened hull…(also allows)…sufficient space for a 30sqm Beach Club at the stern, a luxury area near the water for the owner and guests to relax. The large transom door and integrated hydraulic crane also allow for easier handling of the yachts toys and tender.”

“In addition, the 19-metre long sundeck on Hull 458 is absolutely breathtaking and close to peerless,” remarks Will Allen. “The over-sized hot-tub which has been selected is gigantic, rather like a small swimming pool! There is also a separate bar and areas for dining and sunbathing as well as an entertainment centre in the Mast Arch.”

Accommodating 12 guests in 6 cabins and up to 13 crew, the AMELS 177 offers every possible comfort to her guests. Equipped with 2 x MTU 2000 M70 engines, she cruises comfortably at 13 knots, reaching a top speed of up to 15.5 knots.

“At 54.3-metres in length and with a full displacement steel hull, the AMELS 177 is a true global voyager with a comfortable transatlantic cruising range,” says YPI broker Matt Albert. “The seaworthiness is excellent and the advanced design from AMELS ensures that any vibration, noise and emissions are minimised. As we know, AMELS build yachts of extremely high quality – the 177 Series is already very well respected - HULL 458 is an outstanding opportunity to buy a brand new 54-metre yacht now which will be ready for delivery early next year.”

HULL 458 (LIMITED EDITIONS AMELS 177) is for sale by a Private Client through YPI Brokerage. Asking Price: € P.O.A.
