During a private event held at the Amels and Damen Yachting Vlissingen City shipyard, the Amels 78m Full Custom superyacht reached a major milestone as she touched water for the first time since arriving at the yard in January last year.

In the presence of the owner’s team and the designers involved in the project, as well as the Amels and Damen Yachting team, the pumps to the dry dock were started. As the water flowed into the dock, the keel was submerged, floating the 255-footer up off her dry dock.

Andrew Tree of Superyacht Technical Services, has been overseeing the build process on behalf of the owner, said: “Seeing the project take to the water for the first time since she arrived here in Vlissingen is a huge milestone. This is a day all those involved in the build can be incredibly proud of and is the result of great collaboration and teamwork.”

Witnessing this milestone event were both the yacht’s exterior and interior designers. Espen Øino and his team were appointed by the owner to develop the exterior design and general arrangement, while Zuretti Interior Designers are behind the custom interiors.

Øino said: “It’s definitely a unique project. The large, open top deck, large aft pool and very wide side decks that can be utilised as private guest balconies are features which come together to make this design very special.”

The 78m yacht has accommodation for 14 guests and 26 crew plus captain. With a gross tonnage of 2,850, the Amels 78m Full Custom will be the largest Amels superyacht to date in terms of volume on delivery. She’s scheduled to be handed over in 2022.

Daan Langezaal, Amels and Damen Yachting Project Manager, said: “When we started the pumps and she floated for the first time here in Vlissingen, it really was a moment of great pride. As a Full Custom, this is a yacht that is very different to the last 40 that we have delivered in terms of design, engineering and project requirements.

“The success of the project so far comes down to the collaboration we have with the owner’s team, with us all working to the same goal – to create something magnificent for a happy client. This latest milestone was a major one and I am very much looking forward the next.”

Custom Line Navetta 30 first look: Timeless style puts emphasis back on boating

When living in a world of ever changing trends that go in and out of fashion faster than a Boohoo bikini, it’s reassuring to have constants you can rely on.

Clean exterior lines are deliberately timeless

That’s why Custom Line eschews the stylistic flourishes of fellow Ferretti Group brands like Riva and Pershing in favour of something more timeless.

The new Custom Line Navetta 30 fulfills that brief to perfection, while still managing to look fresh and modern.

The crisp exterior lines are by Filippo Salvetti but it’s the interior design by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel that makes a more lasting impression.

By revisiting maritime materials such as wood, leather and rope as well as a traditional colour palette of blues and browns and adding a fresh twist of his own, he has created a thoroughly modern alternative to the monochrome glass and steel palaces that dominate the market for yachts of this size.

We rather like the way it puts the emphasis back on boating, while providing ample socialising spaces with stunning views of the surroundings thanks to the vast picture windows and careful orientation of the low-slung, free-standing furniture.

The genteel sundeck with its teak and linen sofa, rope banisters and bar looking over the foredeck in place of the usual sunpads and hot tubs is a highlight.

The layout sticks with convention, putting the saloon, galley and owner’s suite on the main deck with the dining area, sky lounge and bridge on the upper deck.

The four guest cabins are amidships on the lower deck with the crew area forward and the engineroom and tender garage aft.

The semi-displacement hull maxes out at 15 knots but is optimised for efficient cruising at 10 knots when the range stretches to 2000nm.

What better ways to transition from the Med to the Caribbean than in the comfort of this new Custom Line Navetta 30?
