The 74-metre Amels Limited Editions design (242 ft), which features a number of layout customisations, departed the Damen Yachting Vlissingen City shipyard in the Netherlands.
The yacht’s planned itinerary is based around an extensive cruising schedule which will take the superyacht worldwide. Synthesis stems from the successful Amels 242 Limited Editions range. Her experienced Owner is a repeat Amels client and has customised this yacht to meet their personal requirements. She features a dedicated Owners Deck with foredeck jacuzzi and there is a significant focus on blending the interior into the exterior throughout with unique dining and entertaining layouts on multiple decks which move away from the more traditional configurations. There is a large aft deck swimming pool and the Lower Deck Wellness Spa continues this play on the indoor-outdoor with direct access to the swim platform for guests.
Synthesis’ Captain James Griffiths joined the project in spring last year forming part of the team overseeing the build on behalf of the Owner. “‘This has been my first new build Amels project – the previous projects I have been involved with at the Damen Yachting shipyard have been refits. As always, the experience has been great and the cooperation with the shipyard, project manager and his team has gone very well. It is fantastic to see such an amazing product come together after what hasn’t been the easiest of times given the global circumstances.”
