The 52.3m (171.6ft) LIND is an Amels 171 from the Dutch shipyard's popular Limited Editions range - the yard's most successful platform to date with 25 yachts delivered. With exterior design by Tim Heywood, and contemporary interiors by Italian stylist Laura Sessa, she has impeccable pedigree.
Delivered in 2010, her steel hull and aluminium superstructure were built to Lloyd's classification and MCA compliance, and she is currently operating as a sought-after charter yacht. In 2020 she went back to Amels for her 10-year survey and a comprehensive refit, which included a full repaint, technical systems overhaul and interior upgrades.
The main deck aft has banquette seating and a sofa either side of a coffee table with steps leading down to the swim platform and toy garage. Large sliding glass doors lead from the main deck aft into the main saloon with a staircase to starboard accessing the lower deck guest accommodation. An L-shaped sofa and occasional armchairs are arranged around a coffee table, and forward is a formal dining area. Large windows provide an abundance of natural light. Moving forward is the main deck lobby and a dayhead, with stairs leading up to the bridge deck lobby.
Forward of the main deck lobby is the owner's suite with a large office, full-beam bedroom with seating either side and a large en suite bathroom with bath, shower and walk-in wardrobe. Three lower deck double cabins and a twin cabin with an additional pullman berth complete accommodation for 11 guests in five cabins. She also accommodates 13 crew.
The sky lounge has large windows and a U-shaped seating arrangement that faces a large TV screen on the forward bulkhead. Expansive doors open onto to the bridge deck aft where open-air dining is shaded by the overhang, and there is a sun lounge and seating further aft. Walkaround sidedecks lead forward to a Portuguese bridge with built-in settee and a passage leads to the foredeck where tenders and toys are stowed and launched by a deck crane.
An extensive sun deck has a large raised jacuzzi forward with sunpads around the forward section and glass safety screens to block the breeze while preserving the view. Beneath the hardtop and sheltered by sliding glass doors there is gym equipment, a sit-up bar and banquette seating on either side against arched bulwarks. Aft is a large, versatile deck space with a comfortable sun lounge/couch and coffee tables where guests can relax in the sun or watch movies on the outdoor cinema at night. Both the forward and aft sections of the sun deck can be shaded with large canvas biminis.
Powered by twin 1,408hp MTU diesel engines, LIND has a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots with a transatlantic range of 4,500nm. Zero speed stabilisers ensure a comfortable cruising experience while under way and at anchor.
