Step into a world of opulence and tranquillity aboard the Amels 60 ENTOURAGE. Hadag takes a closer look, as the superyacht’s custom interior is finally unveiled.
Delivered to its proud owner early this year, this magnificent vessel sets new standards of elegance and sophistication.
ENTOURAGE, the second superyacht in the esteemed Amels 60 range, boasts an awe-inspiring exterior design by the renowned Monaco-based Espen Øino International, complemented by naval architecture from Damen Yachting. However, it is the exquisite interior that truly steals the show. Each Amels 60 superyacht offers a unique interior design, and ENTOURAGE’s experienced owner entrusted the Canadian design studio, Burdifilek, to craft a haven of luxury and serenity.
Having previously conceived exceptional commercial environments such as New York’s Club Monaco and the W Hotel Atlanta, the Burdifilek team embarked on their first superyacht project with ENTOURAGE. Working closely with the owner, they transformed his clear vision into a sanctuary at sea, where every design aspect exudes the highest level of thoughtfulness and refinement. “The owner knew exactly how he wanted to entertain and how he wanted the flow through the spaces to be,” explains Diego Burdi, Co-founder of Burdifilek. “When the sun sets, the yacht transforms, shifting from day to night, evoking a completely different feeling.” The result is a floating oasis of timeless elegance, ultimate comfort and a sense of peace conveyed through a monochromatic palette.
One of the standout features of the interior is the accommodation arrangement for both HADAG YACHTS guests and crew. The main deck offers the owner a spacious extra-large suite, featuring a fold-down balcony, a comfortable lounge area, two bathrooms and a neighbouring twin-bed guest suite. The lower deck boasts four additional suites, accommodating up to 12 guests in total. For the 13 crew members, a modified crew area offers enhanced amenities, including a larger laundry room and dry store. A testament to the focus on the onboard experience, the design team at Burdifilek even reversed the structure of the staircase to create a more visually stunning and spacious passage. “I think the staircase is beautiful and very innovative,” says Arie Midavaine, Project Manager at Damen Yachting. The innovative design choice provides ample space to move around by tucking away the structure on the outside, a departure from previous models. The absence of domes in the ceilings, a feature inspired by the owner’s real estate experience, further adds to the yacht’s allure.
ENTOURAGE is designed to maximise the sense of freedom, especially on the expansive sun deck, which has been extended in the aft by 1.5m and boasts a Jacuzzi pool surrounded by sunpads, a large bar and barbecue, an al fresco dining area and a shaded L-shaped lounge. The sun awning poles have been cleverly repositioned on the outside of the railing, allowing for an even more spacious environment.
Throughout the yacht, guests can indulge in a variety of dining and lounging options, including the swim platform, main deck aft, bridge deck saloon and a casual dining set-up in the main saloon.
“At the request of the owner, we extended the bridge and sun deck aft, which has impacted the use of these decks in such a positive way that we decided to implement this change for all future builds,” says Jan van Hogerwou, Damen Yachting’s Commercial Executive North America.
Collaborating closely with Amels and build supervisors Moran Yacht & Ship, the owner has customised every aspect of the project, leveraging the builder’s well-balanced Limited Editions technical platform and fast build time. Notable exterior modifications include the seamless stream of windows, a departure from the signature angular windows, adding a sleek and uninterrupted flow to the vessel’s design. The foredeck provides room for two tenders and two WaveRunners, while the Beach Club aft holds extra recreational items, such as SEABOBs, wakeboards and diving gear. The Beach Club area also includes a sauna, day head and fitness equipment.
“We are very proud of the many customisations we were able to implement into this platform, which is a testament to the Damen Yachting engineering and production team,” says Sean Moran, Managing Director at Moran Yacht & Ship. As the owner has appointed Moran as the charter central agent for ENTOURAGE, their expertise and contribution have undoubtedly elevated the yacht to new heights.
ENTOURAGE is not only a masterpiece of luxury but also a vessel that upholds ecological responsibility. Designed with the environment in mind, the superyacht features IMO Tier III (emission standards) compliant hybrid power and propulsion technology, cutting-edge equipment and technology, exceptional seakeeping abilities and an impressive transatlantic range of 4,500 miles.
Prepare to be captivated by the allure of ENTOURAGE, as it embarks on a voyage of elegance. Setting the stage for an unforgettable yachting experience, it truly embodies the essence of luxury living at sea.
