Dutch shipbuilder Amels Yachts is based in Vlissingen, the first center of shipbuilding in Holland, whose maritime lineage stretches back hundreds of years. The heritage of this town and its people is infused with shipbuilding DNA; skills and expertise are passed from generation to generation, and many of Amels’ employees descend from long lines of boat builders. Constructing ships since 1918, it wasn’t until 1982 that Amels charted a new, specialized path, with the construction of the 157 foot KATALINA; this yacht represented a new image of luxury cruising and established Amels’ reputation for building the finest super yachts. Amels built their brand around providing the best quality, proven designs, short delivery time, low maintenance and excellent resale value.
Amels was acquired by DAMEN Shipyards in 1991 (which includes DAMEN Schelde Naval Shipbuilding), and while it may be that today they’re building ships for pleasure, and not war, the quest for military precision in everything they produce endures. Now the largest Dutch super yacht builder, they got to that point by understanding it’s not just about the yacht, it’s about creating the opportunity for shared experiences. Their permanent hunger for innovation, dedication, and knowledge drives Amels to build their incredible vessels.
