The 106m/348ft mega yacht AMADEA from Lürssen has been listed for sale and is due to make her inaugural appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019. Ahead of the event, her onboard amenities and interiors have been revealed in stunning detail for the first time since her launch in 2016.
M/Y AMADEA was constructed under the name PROJECT MISTRAL and began life in complete secrecy, the general arrangement for this six-deck luxury yacht and her onboard amenities are completely unknown. The exterior design by Espen Oeino was created to a brief from the Owner desiring a strong personality to show through in the unique appearance.
The resulting form blends classical and modern elements, such as the raked bow culminating in a silvery figurehead of a stylised albatross. Dark accents are restrained and used only around the tinted windows, which are numerous enough to flood the shared guest spaces and cabins on the lower deck with natural light.
The exterior spaces are replete with guest amenities for the utmost comfort and convenience, such as the helipad on the foredeck, a lower deck aft beach club and a 10m/32.8ft glass-sided pool on the main deck that has a mosaic floor. This is surrounded on the port and starboard sides by plush sun-drenched sunpads while a Jacuzzi with a similar arrangement is to be found on the sundeck aft.
Zuretti styled the awe-inspiring interiors, for which the Owner’s brief called for an ‘authentic classic’ 18th Century appearance complete with furnishings from the period, integrated into which are all the modern conveniences and luxuries that make the cruising experience so desirable today. Intimate spaces within the generous proportions have not been ignored, and guests can find a cosy corner to admire the leather book-lined walls or listen to live music from the hand-painted Pleyel grand piano.
There are myriad subtle elements that might never be noticed by some guests, however, others will cast an appreciative eye over the hand-painted clouds above the formal dining table, or notice how the back-lit bar has a display of decorative bottles for a variety of spirits. Onyx panels, semi-precious marble, dark wood varieties such as burl and stainless steel work in harmony to produce the neutral-toned interiors accented by a splash of colour such as the crimson carpet covering the stairs. Hidden behind the beautiful surrounds is a wealth of technology providing the lighting, entertainment systems, power and other systems integral to the security and smooth operation onboard: Altogether, there are 6,500 devices across the decks with curtains and sound systems controlled by dedicated iPads.
The detailing isn’t confined to the inside either: Alfresco diners will be in admiration for the deck motifs. The outside is brought in on the top deck, which has a paler colour scheme to the lower decks and dazzles with a glass ceiling, a waterfall, climbing vines and indoor planters. In the centre of this room are an extended formal dining table and a grand chandelier that mimics the natural concept.
On the lower deck as well as hosting the beach club there is a wine cellar, humidor and a large conference room for business on the go. While cruising out in the wilds or after a tiring day in town guests can unwind in the Moroccan-themed spa wellness centre that offers a hammam, sauna and massage room.
The desirable onboard accommodation sleeps up to 16 guests over 8 en-suite staterooms, of which the private Owner’s deck is filled with personal spaces and luxuries such as a beauty salon, gym, and a bath in the bathroom that is slightly sunk into the floor. In the cosy office, there is a hand-painted map on the ceiling and an overstuffed armchair that exudes charm from a bygone era, perfect for time spent reading or working in privacy. The indoor lounge also comes with a piano while out on the Owner’s deck aft there is a circular alfresco dining table for eight that folds out to cater to 16, and near the stern, there is a fire pit surrounded by sofa/sunbeds that are exposed to the sunshine or stars.
Off the Owner’s deck and the foredeck is one of the most original touches on board: The ‘clamshell’ balconies which are obvious in shape from the air, yet provide subtle outdoor social areas for those living on board. The high glass balustrades keep the view while acting as a windshield so that even on more blustery days space can be used.
The rest of the guest accommodation is spread across the main deck and is named after a classic era colour, such as ‘Emerald’ and ‘Burgundy’ which hints at what is to be found within. The VIP stateroom on the main deck forward is the highlight of these other cabins: Its pretty-in-pink colour scheme is a dream come true for many little girls and feels palatial due to its large dressing room, light-filled lounge and spacious en-suite bathroom.
For power, M/Y AMADEA uses a pair of MTU 20V 4300 kW engines that produce a maximum speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots, at which she can achieve an exhaustive range of 8,000 nautical miles for reaching and returning from the farthest corners of the Earth.
