When you think about what a superyacht should be, then a lot of luxury features will immediately spring to mind such as plush interiors, gleaming decks, rows of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass walls, as well as plenty of fun things included to keep us amused.
Nothing embodies the idea of a perfect mega-yacht more than the 106.5-metre Amadea mega-yacht, a veritable floating palace of a luxury vessel being the most detailed superyacht ever built!
The Amadea yacht was built from steel and aluminium in 2017 by German shipbuilders Lürssen, and is currently up for sale with Imperial the Monaco-based luxury yacht broker, and is looking for her next privileged owner.
However, the next lucky owner of this amazing yacht will grab themselves an absolute bargain because even though the Amadea is classed as ‘brand-used’, it has been refurbished to be in an even better condition than you would get when buying an off the peg new-build.
According to Imperial’s management team, the Amadea is a “true turn-key superyacht” because of the precise synchronisation between all parties that were responsible for creating such luxury.
So, what’s inside? Let’s take a peek inside one of the most desirable luxury yachts on the market today…
To infinity and beyond
One of the first eye-catching features that guests will notice once they board the Amadea mega-yacht is the 10-metre mosaic-lined infinity pool that sits on the main deck created by exterior designer Espen Øino. Taking a cooling dip in this pool will really allow guests to connect with the splendour of the sea and the beautiful surroundings wherever the owner chooses to anchor the yacht.
The Amadea has a clamshell arrangement of three overlapping shell structures containing five decks that hold endless world-class features to entertain her honoured guests, including a cooling air-ventilation system to keep guests and crew cool and comfortable, a future-proof bridge and a very grand white marble central staircase fitted with red carpet that links up each deck on the yacht.
The decks contain many hidden and convertible features such as a deck with 20,000 Watts of built-in speakers, lights and lasers, and a spa pool that can be converted into a stage for live bands or DJ’s to play.
Even the cinema on the bridge deck can be retracted when not in use, but when in use you can really get into the zone with the film you are watching because the two main sofas have D-Box motion control, allowing you to tip and move around mimicking the motion seen on-screen. The cinema even has its own popcorn machine!
Designer interior layout
Every detail of the interior décor has been carefully chosen. From the custom-built furniture to the matching books and ornaments, interior designer Zuretti left nothing to chance and pulled out all the stops to over-deliver a high level combination of chic comfort and class.
Zuretti was given a brief from the original owner asking for an authentic classic representation with the integration of classic furniture from the 18th century. You really get this feel as you walk through the yacht with alcohol, books and accessories being a key part of the interior design.
Øino and Zuretti collaborated extremely well to deliver external and interior designs that complement each other perfectly. Cosy and intimate nooks are not in short supply on board with plenty of recessed seating kitted out with cushions and sun loungers in warm, organic tones.
There are very eye-catching features to take in, such as the hand-painted Michelangelo clouds above the dining table, backlit bottles of whiskies, brandies and rums behind the bars, and the stainless steel, onyx panels and deck motifs.
All play and no work?
Despite the Amadea mega-yacht being unmistakably built for pleasure and leisure, the business needs of the guests have not been overlooked. The multi-functional bridge deck offers a private space for guests to conduct digital business meetings or to catch up with the news through the onboard cinema.
The main remit for the Amadea’s general arrangement was to deliver a luxury yacht with plenty of space, privacy and intimacy that meets with all purposes for both business and pleasure.
Other unique features you can find aboard include a helipad, outdoor firepit, gym, beauty centre, four Sea Doo watercraft, a vast art deco-style albatross off the bow that was created by Netherlands artist Willem Lenssinck, a ‘guests galley’ on the top deck that offers guests the opportunity to cook their own food with a grill area, copper pots and pans, a live lobster tank, and use of a winter patio dining area.
There is even a storage area containing a teppanyaki grill, a rotisserie and a hog-roaster. The yacht also has a crane to lift the equipment overboard so you can moor up and take your party to the beach!
