Madame Kate delivered to owner
Dutch shipyard AMELS have delivered Madame Kate to her owner.
The 60 metre superyacht, designed by Tim Heywood, showcases a unique pearl effect paintwork. According to Benoit Faure, the buyer’s representative from Yachting Concept, the owner wanted the boat to appear like a spotlight. The designers have thus incorporated an elaborate colour-changing lighting system, above and below the waterline.
“The owner is absolutely delighted with MADAME KATE,” said Faure. “Of course, the TIm Heywood design is very eye-catching and generates a lot of attention. But the Owner has also remarked on the level of quality on board, which is exactly the giant leap up that he wanted. For example, noise and vibrations are very low. In fact, it’s better described as an absence of noise and vibrations.”
According to AMELS, the owner had a long list of modifications to the layout and design of the 60-metre AMELS 199 concept, including tailoring outside areas and relocating the galley from the lower deck to the main deck.
Since departing the Vlissingen shipyard in May, the AMELS 199 Limited Editions yacht has been cruising the Balearics. Madame Kate‘s owner plans to spend the summer cruising the Mediterranean in his new superyacht. Madame Kate will then debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
This delivery marks the end of a busy summer for AMELS, having also delivered 55 metre Vega in June and 55 metre La Familia in May. Construction of the 83 metre AMELS 272 is also underway with delivery scheduled for late 2016.
