    Amels is presently building a fully custom 78-meter superyacht which will be completed in 2021. The design is by Espen Oeino and it is not a Limited Edition build of the usual variety. Although not quite the same length as "Here Comes The Sun", this 78-meter will have a higher GT than her when completed.

    An update on this vessel. The yacht which has been under construction in Romania is going to hit the water in a few days. It is expected to splash for the first time on December 4th and then be towed to Amels in Vlissingen for fitting out and finishing in time for 2021.

    This morning the vessel slide sideways into the water, typically you do not see yachts technically launched this way. Amels naturally documented the event on their social media. Below is the Amels 78 Fully Custom prior to sliding into the water for the first time.

    It is interesting in the renders this yacht looks alot sleeker while the real thing looks quite bulky above the waterline. Similar angles used for optimal comparison.

    The first Amels 78-meter Fully Custom superyacht is now floating inside the build shed so her launch will be soon. The yacht is the largest superyacht built by Amels so far in terms of internal Volume which measures 2,850 GT.

    Ill-proportioned even mini-van like; maybe the design gives it great utilitarian value. It certainly gives it enormous interior volume, like a mini-van. But, it's aesthetically challenged. There's not much elegance there at all. I guess that's on the designer and not Amels. Espen Oeino is always hit or miss for me and this is firmly in the miss category.

    It might be that upper-deck extension that seems out of place.

    I wonder if the main deck was painted white with the rest of the hull if it was create a better illusion. It being black, emphasized a top-heavy appearance.

    Yes, that might help. You can see so much of the main deck because of those large scallop cut-aways, the color is even more pronounced than normal. I'm sure the views from the inside looking out are great though. I also thought the promo shot they selected for their Instagram account - which is also posted above - was odd insomuch that it cut-off the rear quarter of the ship.
