Nick Flashman, Director & Founder Deeside Maritime and Owner’s Representative shares, “I have worked on a number of Amels new builds over the years and have great experience of working with the Damen Yachting team and their fantastic technical build platform and operational performance. It was this experience and knowledge that the Owner and family office were looking for when appointing someone to not only oversee the crucial final stages of the build but to take the operational management of the yacht forward beyond delivery. Today’s delivery represents one of the more significant milestones as, together with the yard and the owner’s team, we mark the move from build towards onboard enjoyment.” 

KHALIDAH comes equipped with six spacious staterooms in total, for 12 guests with 12 crew members and one captain also accommodated for. Notable features of this Amels 60 include the sun deck, swim platform, owner’s suite with private folding balcony, 9m (30ft) tender on the foredeck, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and touch-and-go helipad.
