Since hitting the water in early spring, the latest Amels 180 Limited Edition superyacht Galene has spent her first summer in the Mediterranean. SuperYacht Times steps on board to take a closer look at the design work of Tim Heywood and Laura Sessa Romboli before she heads to the Caribbean for the winter.
With her Greek name meaning serenity and tranquillity, Galene has calm and light interiors to complement the 25th Amels 180 series platform she was built with. The design includes a large sun deck which – with its optional awnings, bar area and large Jacuzzi – is one of Galene's standout features.
Up to 12 guests can be accommodated overnight in five staterooms, including the full-beam master suite. Those who occupy the owner's stateroom will be treated to the use of its fold-down balcony, the his-and-hers bathrooms and large wardrobes. Just like the rest of the yacht, the accommodation is decorated with an understated art-deco flair – a recognisable trait of the Laura Sessa design.
With a team of 13 on board, Galene is looked after by a dynamic crew led by Captain James Verity. The crew have mastered the yacht's extensive toy store and have been taking this season's charter guests out for a spin on the E-foil, Seabobs, wakeboards and windsurfs. Once back onboard, the guests can take to lounging in one of the saloons or outdoor seating areas.
