Why Choose Amels

Innovation and Excellence

Amels is the superyacht division of the family-owned and well-respected Damen Shipyards group. Amels is one of the largest luxury yacht builders in Holland and uses its experience in luxury yacht building with its parent company’s research and development to build luxury, state-of-the-art vessels up to 200m long. Impeccably clean and exceptionally organised, the Amels shipyard achieves success through hard work, craftsmanship and a love of doing things the right way. In addition to full custom yachts, yacht builder Amels is known for its pioneering limited editions range, which takes the best from custom and semi-custom yacht construction and combines them into a streamlined build process.

Why Choose Amels

From Wood To Steel

The story started in 1918, when Kees Amels started a family boat building company in the north of the Netherlands, in the town of Makkum. Along with his son Wiebe, Kees produced wooden fishing boats and steel tugboats, building around 100 boats over the 30 years that followed. The company delivered their first superyacht built by Amels: 48.2m Katalina.

Why Choose Amels

Limited Editions Range Success

In 1991, Damen Shipyards Group purchased Amels and preserved the brand, as the Amels name had such a strong reputation for quality and great value luxury superyacht building. Amels was still based at Makkum until 2005, when it moved to the Royal Schelde yard in Vlissingen, the largest yacht shipyard in the Netherlands. Two years later, Amels delivered the first yacht in their Limited Editions series, a series that would become exceptionally popular.
