Delivered in 2016 by Amels as part of their Limited Edition series, the 73,5-meter Plvs Vltra became the first hull in the Dutch shipyard's 242 range. With an exterior by Tim Heywood, Plvs Vltra's interior was designed by Winch.


Built for the owner of 55-meter Amels, Step One, Plvs Vltra was commissioned with specific requirements in mind amongst which were a large swimming pool aft of the main deck, a large master suite on the upper deck, an extensive spa area, plenty of exterior areas for entertaining and two, 10-meter tenders. All of which can be found on Plvs Vltra.


Chosen for the new build following the owner's good experience with his previous 55-meter, Amels built Plvs Vltra as part of their Limited Edition series, a range of customisable superyachts built on a shared technical platform, hence allowing to offset development and design costs over a number of projects.


One of the key areas during the development of Plvs Vltra became her spa area located amidship on the lower deck. Boasting a circular spa pool, steam room, sauna and massage area, the spa area opens up onto the sea through a foldable platform separated from the spa area by a floor-to-ceiling window.


Decorated throughout with various mosaics, the spa area can be accessed from the sea through the foldable balcony, raised high enough not to be rendered useless by waves, or through an elevator that goes from the spa up to the lobby near the master suite on the upper deck. A side-boarding ladder could also be used to access the aft swimming pool from the foldable balcony in the spa area.


Amels' decision to put the spa area amidship was driven by both design and functionality. Even when waves are found at sea, the Jacuzzi can stay filled in this position and usable. This arrangement also allows the aft of the ship to be reserved as technical space for tenders, toys and storage.


Plvs Vltra can accommodate 12 guests across her 5 decks, with the master suite located on the upper deck, two VIP cabins on the main deck and three guest cabins on the lower deck.


Styled with some of the most famed hotels on the Côte d'Azur in mind, Plvs Vltra's interior features windows strategically positioned to provide tremendous views and at the same time flow light through the yacht.


Amongst the features in the 73,5-meter yacht's main salon can be noted the chandeliers, which seem to be free hanging but are in reality well fixed to make sure nothing breaks. Other notable features include a mosaic in the main lobby.


The owner's lounge was on the other hand built as a more relaxed area, with a slightly different colour theme, leaning on light blue. Amongst its amenities are a limited edition Parallèle piano, a crystal bar, a cinema screen and windows that open on both sides to create a breeze across.


The master cabin, stretching across the full-beam of the yacht, has a bed at its center, with access to a private foredeck area from two doors on the side of the cabin. Interestingly, Plvs Vltra's interior was built on a pre-agreed budget, which meant Amels and Winch had to deliver on their plans without modifications increasing costs.


The owner's office area, sitting aft of the master suite, near the lounge, changes themes and is styled in a darker manner. 


Delivered in 2016, Plvs Vltra became the first hull in Amels' Limited Edition 242 series, with the second one becoming New Secret, earlier this year, and two more of these hulls currently in build at the Dutch shipyard.

31-metre superyacht Francesca launched by CCN for an American owner
Following the launch of 40 m M/Y Kanga, a few days ago another mega yacht hit the water – M/Y Francesca, the sixth craft in CCN’s successful line of CCN 102’ Flyingsport yachts, to be delivered to an American Owner.This 31 m boat in composite material can boast very slender lines and a skilful, balanced mix of style and functionality, combining the characteristics of a flying bridge yacht with the sporty features and high speed typical of large open yachts.The metallic light-champagne colour shade endows the hull with elegance and a strong personality – the same that can be found in the interiors designed by Tommaso Spadolini, who perfectly interpreted the taste and wishes of an Owner particularly keen on design.The layout is the classical American one, with a spacious open country kitchen located on the main deck. This area is extremely bright thanks to the wide glazed surfaces of the salon letting in plenty of natural light, and to the skylight above the central dining table, which can be shaded by an electrically-driven liquid-crystal film. The furniture of the main deck also includes a comfortable custom-made sofa.Across the yacht, the furniture and furnishings combine classical style and ‘bolder’ solutions, overlaying and alternating different materials, like sycamore and dark wood, glass and satin metal. Other materials also include a wide range of leathers, supplied by Marine Leather, obtained through different procedures (braided, smooth, pleated) and coming in different colour shades. In the full-beam master cabin, located on the lower deck, for instance, dark, lacquered colours alternate with lighter and brighter ones. The marbled sycamore wood on the walls is interrupted brightly-coloured fabric panels by Pierre Frey and is stylishly combined with the soft colour shades of C&C fabrics.Great care has also been devoted to the selection of furniture, which is entirely custom-made and carefully designed to use lightened materials, so as to ensure no impact on the yacht’s 40-knot required speed performance.Conceived for cruising in tropical seas, Francesca can boast an over-23 sq. m flybridge equipped with an easily removable awning and ensuring great comfort thanks to an icemaker, a barbecue, and a high-performing custom-made refrigerator. Indoor, a tropical air-conditioning system (248,000 Btu) will ensure the ideal temperature at all times.Onboard technologies also include a state-of-the-art home automation system that fully integrates the two MTU 16V2000 M96L engines, the modern steering system, and all onboard utilities.Another peculiar feature of this outstanding boat is her limited draught (1.20 m), allowing to move safely and quickly even in the shallow American waters, as explicitly required by the Owner.Francesca can also rely on a 4.40 m Williams water-jet tender.After cruising the Mediterranean Sea during the summer, the yacht will be presented as a world première at the Cannes Yachting Festival, to be held from 11 to 16 September.Timeline
