Yesterday the recently delivered first Amels Limited Editions 212 IMAGINE came to Gibraltar. Giovanni Romero took photos from all angles.

30 March 2011:

A very interesting yacht is berthed next to HERMITAGE at the Lürssen yard in Rendsburg: TÜBINGEN is a 47m ancient minesweeper of the German Navy, built in 1957 at the Burmester yard and converted into a motor yacht for an Italian owner at the Neue Jadewerft. She still looks very much like the original Lindau class minesweepers. Carl Groll took fantastic aerial photos.

28 March 2011:

Yesterday two tugs conducted the hull of an AMELS 177 Limited Edition westwards through the Nord-Ostsee-Channel. Olaf Eggert took photos in the Kieler Förde and Andreas Jens photographed near Rendsburg. It seems as if the hull had been constructed for Amels Holland by a yard in Gdynia, Poland.
