On Saturday 12 February another partly equipped superyacht built at Damen Shipyards Gdynia was towed out of the Gdynia harbour. The hull, intended for Amels shipyard from Damen group, is towed by Ikar tug to Holland, where it will be finished and fitted out before delivery to the owner.
It is a vessel with the shipyard building number Amels 6033, probably the third unit of the Amels 60 type, part of the “Limited Editions” product line, which was presented to the market in 2019.
The first boat of the Amels 60 project was delivered just over a year ago and towed from Gdynia to the Netherlands on 22 January 2021.
The Amels 60 line superyachts, with hybrid propulsion and seating for 12 guests, were designed – on the exterior architectural shape – by studio Espen Øino, and for the interior by Winch Design.
Among the most important features of the Amels 60 model is the large area of the available outer decks – approximately 486 m². The highest deck, the sun deck, measures 162 m². It offers a jacuzzi for six people.
The hybrid propulsion system in mechanical mode, while maintaining a speed of 7 knots, reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by 70 per cent. Both the main propulsion and generator set engines are equipped with catalytic converters (SCR).
In electric mode, on the other hand, the vessel has its main internal combustion engines switched off (it is emission-free) and moves only thanks to two electric motors powered by a battery bank.
