The first Amels 199, Event, has been christened at the Amels yard in Vlissingen, Holland. In a few weeks the 60-meter ship will set out on her maiden voyage to Norway to explore the fjords.

Event’s delivery was part of a collaboration between Amels and Imperial.

The christening was an emotional occasion, the owner sending his thanks to the Amels workforce who were there to enjoy the moment after many months of dedication and hard work. The honor of christening the yacht was given to Laura Sessa, the designer who worked closely with the owner in creating an interior that perfectly complements the bold theme of Tim Heywood’s lines for the Amels 199.

After her maiden voyage to Norway, Event will sail south for the Mediterranean where she will become available for charter and then go on to star at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
