MES AMIS Dubois Yachts | From US$ 115,000 /wk
The luxury sailing yacht MES AMIS (ex ARTEMIS, SALPERTON III) is a 44m Dubois design, with interior design by Adam Lay Studios. This beautiful yacht was conceived by a very experienced yachtsman, built in New Zealand by Fitzroy Yachts and launched in 2007. She was the winner of the ShowBoats International award at Monaco in 2007.
Combining the innovative design work of Dubois Naval Architects with the workmanship of Fitzroy Yachts, MES AMIS is a performance-orientated luxury yacht. S/Y MES AMIS is currently one of the very finest recent sailing yachts worldwide in her size range.
A beautifully appointed interior is the design work of Adam Lay Studios and includes a full-width owner's suite, three generous guest cabins and three crew cabins. Yacht MES AMIS's luxury interior makes lovely use of Oak and Walnut with Wenge and could be described as “warm, calm contemporary”. Her style of wooden joinery is simple, clean and crisp with a tactile countertop nosing incorporating a practical up-stand and a walnut bead for emphasis. The Walnut cornice gives a crisp emphasis between bulkhead and deckhead. Oak floor perimeters, in wide boards combined with natural cotton carpet in an off-white colour, reflect the light bulkheads and deck heads. Natural fibres maintain the feeling of calm. Leather, bronze, granite, onyx and slumped glass continue the ‘natural’ theme throughout the superyacht.
The yacht’s unique transom opens hydraulically to form either a swim platform or a boarding platform 800mm above water level. The transom can be lowered to 300mm in calm water. Twelve underwater lights have been fitted into the hull.
Another unique design feature is the layout on one level from the cockpit through the saloon and then down a few steps to the dining area, thus creating an expansive area for entertaining. Within the MES AMIS upper saloon, and adjacent to the bar, is the inside steering and navigation station with autopilot and engine controls.
The yacht’s five spreaders Martin Spars 60m main mast and Leisure furl booms are constructed from carbon fibre. Her mainsail and mizzen are fully battened with the Leisure furl in-boom furling and reefing systems. Her hull, deck and superstructure are welded aluminium construction and her fin bulb keel is an elliptical section and is filled with 60 tonnes of lead. There are 5 watertight bulkheads.
She provides duel steering positions with custom-built carbon fibre wheels with sunpads to aft. In the centre of the cockpit is a console carrying the sailing controls and instruments and navigation systems. Forward to the steering position is a dining area and a large sunpad area.

"I loved the look of boats from age, well, nothing. It was the look of boats was as interesting to me as the hydrodynamics, both were equally compelling. I always wanted to design boats which were pretty, and I used to design model boats to begin with." - “Ultimately, the key to any business is the driving force and the ability of the person who founded it, but you do need a good team behind you,” - Ed Dubois
