Fraser Yachts sells 74m new construction project from Amels

Fraser Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of a new construction 74m AMELS.  The yacht is the second hull of the AMELS 242 Limited Edition range and is scheduled for delivery in spring 2017.
Antoine Larricq of Fraser Yachts Monaco represented the buyer in the purchase of the project. A long‐standing repeat client, this will be the 4th New Build project that Antoine Larricq has overseen on behalf of the buyer and his 9th New Build project sold in recent years.

Tim Heywood is designing the sleek and elegant lines of the exterior, while Andrew Winch designs the interior, working very closely with the Owner to fulfil his personal vision.  

This superb yacht, at 1,787 GT, will be used for world cruising and features an elongated aft deck, thus creating superior exterior luxury spaces with a light and airy volume. VF Yachts, the in‐house Project Management division of Fraser Yachts, will undertake the Project Management of the vessel.

When asked how and why the Owner decided to sign a contract with AMELS, Antoine Larricq explained “We initially visited the AMELS 212 Z during the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show.  Thereafter we explored all possibilities of potential projects under construction.  This took us worldwide, travelling as far as the Antipodes and China and finally extended to the study of a full custom solution. With the Client's brief uppermost, it gradually became clear that the AMELS shipyard ticked all the boxes.

Some examples: Building quality, reputation and design pedigree, spa area, helicopter capability, Owner’s deck layout and delivery date within 18 months. The Owner’s Team, Fraser Yachts Management and AMELS have enjoyed a fruitful collaboration leading to the recent signature of this Build contract.”

Fraser Yachts has a long standing history of collaboration with AMELS including the construction of 46m MAUPITI in 1993, 50m KERMIT in 2001, 52m LADY IN BLUE in 2004 (now FELIX currently for sale with Fraser Yachts), and 65m IMAGINE in 2011 (for sale and charter with Fraser Yachts).
