Dutch shipyard Amels has launched the latest hull in their successful Limited Editions 180 series, named Galene.

The 55 metre motor yacht hit the water on Saturday at Amels’ yard in Vlissingen. The name, Galene, derives from Ancient Greek meaning ‘serenity, tranquility, calmness’.

Sold in January 2019, Galene is the 25th hull in Limited Editions 180 series. “The owner will be exploring many destinations around the world,” said Rutger Dolk from the Amels sales team. “He was looking for a yacht that was built to travel the world.”

Galene was designed by Tim Heywood and features ‘calm’ and ‘subtly art-deco’ interiors by Laura Sessa. She can accommodate up to 12 guests in five cabins. An extended version of the 177 model, she offers an enlarged sun deck which is now 25 metres long and has 155 square metres of relaxation space.
