Originally known as motor yacht PROJECT WAKA, the 68-metre Amels 220 superyacht is now known as motor yacht NENINKA (AURORA BOREALIS, PROJECT WAKA) after her technical launch in Q1 2019. Her naval architecture from the shipyard and exterior styling from Tim Heywood features classic elements such as her raked bow and circular and square portholes on the lower deck, while her plain white hull and superstructure contrasting with a charcoal-coloured waterline also add to her timeless refinement. Winch Design created the beautiful bespoke interiors for her owner, using an earth-toned palette and plenty of textures and reflective elements for a mesmerising and stately environment. Her accommodation sleeps a maximum of 14 guests across 7 en-suite staterooms, and the professional crew of 16 will ensure that every guest receives impeccable service.
NOTABLE FEATURES OF NENINKA: ~Sundeck Jacuzzi to seat seven ~Two VIP staterooms on the bridge deck ~Beach club ~Swim platform with shower and swim ladder ~Sundeck skylounge ~Sundeck helipad ~Air conditioning ~Wi-Fi
From the swim platform, guests have access to the beach club and two stairways leading up to the main deck aft, where a C-shaped sofa, seats and a coffee table create a casual gathering place for breakfast or conversation in the shade while cruising.
The bridge deck aft is completely shaded by the upper deck overhang to create an all-day environment for alfresco dining and enjoying conversation outdoors at the sofas lining the stern.
The Portuguese deck in front of the wheelhouse provides two sofa-sunbeds for meals and relaxation in the sunshine, and on the bow there is a Davit crane for the launch and retrieval of the tenders and motorised water toys.
The sundeck is split into two sections: The forward section is dedicated to relaxation in the sunshine, with a Jacuzzi, a massive sunpad and an abundance of seating both around the sunbed and in the aft port corner, where there is also a drinks table.
The aft sundeck has a grand alfresco dining table beneath the shade of the hardtop, with the skylight above to provide greater illumination or cover as required. The oval sunbed and sun loungers towards the stern form a second guest relaxation area with uninterrupted views of the environment. The sundeck aft can also be used as a helipad.
The lower deck hosts four en-suite guest cabins as well as the crew accommodation, a side-loading tender garage and a beach club within the stern.
On the main deck, the Master suite is placed forward, while the formal dining area, is placed within the open-plan main salon.
On the upper deck, the bridge is forward with the Captain's cabin immediately behind, and two large VIP cabins amidships and aft.
The sundeck interior hosts the skylounge, which enjoys elevated views and an abundance of light through the full-height windows. A bar is placed forward with oversized armchairs and a sofa creating a cosy social area close to the windows.

"Since yacht design is highly competitive, you could be forgiven for thinking that there might be some animosity between designers. But that notion is far from reality. I am blessed with being able to count on some of the world’s leading designers as close friends, among them Tim Heywood, with whom we have collaborated on various large motor yacht projects, including the award winners Pelorus, Ice and Kogo." - "Creatively, Tim is afraid of nothing and will often conceptualise ideas that bewilder shipyards." - Terence Disdale speaking of Tim Heywood, the designer of this yacht.
