Amels Unveiled First Pictures of ‘Here Comes the Sun’ After Refit
A year after arriving at Amels and Damen Yachting shipyard in the Netherlands, the Amels refit Here Comes The Sun has been successfully launched after a large-scale rebuild. In a milestone moment for the largest Amels delivered to date, the now 89m yacht unveiled her new colour.Here Comes The Sun was originally delivered in 2017. The yacht returned to Amels and Damen Yachting in 2020 under new ownership for an extensive refit. The changes include the new colour, an extended sun deck aft with helicopter landing area, extended bridge deck aft accommodation with 2 VIP suites with exterior balconies and alterations to a number of deck and interior areas and layouts. The 6m extension to the main deck aft also provides a larger beach club, spa facilities and a large 7m swimming pool.For the refit design and naval architecture, the owner appointed the yard’s original partner for the naval architecture, Azure Yacht Design, to re-pen this Amels from 83 to 89 meters.“Welcoming any of the fleet back to the yard is always done with pride but for Here Comes The Sun, it runs even deeper. She represents the first step back towards full custom and bigger projects. Many of the same craftsmen and women who were meticulously involved in the original build have been working on her during this refit, remoulding and reshaping her into the new masterpiece she is set to become. Her launch is a very proud moment. Her additional length and brand new colour are stunning and we look forward to the final stages of the refit now coming together for delivery to her owner later this summer,” says Michel Coens, Damen Yachting Sales Manager.Damen Yachting, a division within the Damen Shipyards Group, was created in 2019.
