PUMP UP THE VOLUME Espen Øino-penned 256-footer, the largest Amels superyacht to date, makes first contact with water at the Dutch yard Amels has launched its largest yacht by volume to date, a 256ft custom yacht with a gross tonnage of 2,850GT, shorter but more voluminous than 272ft Here Comes the Sun, delivered in 2017. It’s the first custom yacht that the Dutch builder has launched in a while and its massive size impressed even the experienced team at Damen Yachting, who watched as water filled the dry dock and buoyed the vessel for the first time since January 2020 when the yacht arrived in Vlissigen for outfitting. The exterior design and layout are by Espen Øino International and the interior design is by Zuretti Interior Designers. Details are scarce at the…

eye opener

The Rolling Stones were in good spirits when they hosted a press conference on this yacht in New York Harbour on the eve of their 1966 American tour – even though Mick Jagger had collapsed and been hospitalized with “nervous exhaustion” just two weeks before.

Arrangements were significantly lower key than modern-day Stones shows: tickets cost between $3 and $5 and the opening act was a Battle of the Bands between two local groups. Charlie Watts, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and Bill Wyman (pictured left to right) played a short set of 10 songs, including Not Fade Away, as rain foil on…

Big appeal of little Lürssen For a while now, the executives of supeiyacht builder Lurssen have wanted to remind prospective yacht owners that they are perfectly capable of building in the smaller end of the spectrum below 200ft, and so the builder was happy to announce at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show that they had secured an order for a 177ft yacht. The exterior design concept by Bannenberg & Rowell has morphed a bit since the first iteration, which drew inspiration from the iconic Carinthia VI. In April, Lurssen launched project 13800, now 182ft in length, revealing its well-balanced exterior styling. In contrast to the understated exterior, the interior, also by Bannenberg & Rowell working closely with the yacht’s owners, boasts a “fearless use of colors and textures,” in the words…
