AMELS delivered around more than 60 superyachts and 100 vessels of up to 120 metres from wooden fishing boats to steel tug boats.
It was in 1918 that Kees Amels established a family boat building business in the north of the Netherlands. In 1991 AMELS was sold to Damen Shipyards Group. The name AMELS was retained, preserving the brand which was, by then, synonymous with luxury yacht building and is now also renowned for its high value, quality and finish. In 2018 AMELS celebrated its centennial milestone. From its origins as a Dutch boat builder, AMELS has grown as part of the Damen Shipyards Group powerhouse into the largest luxury yacht building yard in the Netherlands, recognized world-wide as a symbol of pedigree and the absolute highest quality and finish. It’s a heritage that we are proud to continue.
