Burgess marked an upbeat continuation of the year’s first quarter with the February sale of an in-build Amels 180 project. Delivery is scheduled for May 2015 and Burgess Technical Services has been appointed owner’s project managers for the duration of the build.

This exceptional delivery time for a superyacht of such high pedigree illustrates the success story behind the Dutch shipyard’s Limited Editions concept, which enables superyachts of a significant size to be delivered in half the time of a fully custom built vessel.

Guided by Rupert Nelson, Sales Director with Burgess in Monaco, the buyer opted for a customised contemporary interior styled by celebrated Paris-based designer Christian Liaigre to complement the bold and elegant exterior lines drawn by award-winning British designer, Tim Heywood.  

Full of innovative design details with particular emphasis on a seamless flow between indoor-outdoor living spaces, the owner’s suite will feature a folding balcony, as will the main saloon both to port and starboard. Further attributes of special note include a touch-and-go helipad and an expansive beach club, including ample stowage for an armada of water toys, a steam room and a swim platform with integrated stairwells.

The trusted Amels Limited Editions offering eliminates technical risk and allows the owner to concentrate on the enjoyable aspects of customising a superyacht, safe in the knowledge that the yacht will be completed on time. A dependable, fast track delivery timeline now plays an increasingly pivotal part in the decision-making process with clients looking for a new build, explains Rob Luijendijk, CEO of Amels.  “For example, in just 16 months time, Burgess’ client will be enjoying a highly personalised yacht with the finest craftsmanship and design credentials,” he adds.  

Rupert Nelson said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with Amels again. The Limited Editions platform has been a resounding success and Burgess is extremely pleased to be closely collaborating with Amels and their experienced team on this project.”
