Rush Hour at Amels and Damen
On Time and on Budget
With a record 25 Amels and Damen projects underway, business is booming for the Dutch luxury yacht builder. This spring, the two brands representing the yachting division of the Damen Shipyards Group had no less than 16 yachting projects in The Netherlands and nine additional hulls under construction. The current project numbers further establish Amels and Damen as the largest luxury yacht builder and refit provider in the Netherlands and a true centre of excellence. With a full house at its main yard in Vlissingen, the yacht builder is expanding at its second facility, Vlissingen East, a few kilometres away.
Part of the Damen Shipyards Group, the Vlissingen East yard now includes a dedicated 200-metre building hall for Yachting as well as the largest covered dry dock in the Netherlands. At 215 metres in length, the dock can easily accommodate the largest yacht in the world. Spring deliveries completed so far at the builder’s two facilities in Vlissingen include refit projects Dytan and Ventum Maris, as well as new build Amels 180 Papa, all on time and on budget.
