AMORE was built by an exceptional team at one of the premier yacht builders in America, Christensen Shipyard in Vancouver, WA. AMORE was originally built for a knowledgeable yachtsman with close relations to the shipyard. Her subsequent current owner has kept the tradition of keeping AMORE in immaculate condition by consistently maintaining an exceptional Captain and crew.
The beautiful contemporary interior of AMORE was designed by interior designer Carol Williams & Associates and handcrafted in-house by Christensen. Her outstanding features include striking walnut walls and cabinetry and some of the world’s finest marble inlay and stonework.

She has an incredible 6 stateroom layout that includes a full beam master stateroom on the main deck, 5 guest staterooms below, all ensuite, comprised of a full-beam VIP stateroom, 2 King guest staterooms and 2 guest staterooms with a full, a single and Pullman berth, giving her accommodations for up to 16 guests.
The elevator can access all four decks, from the guest cabins up to the sun deck.
Built to ABS class, AMORE can be privately or commercially registered, allowing her to charter anywhere in the world. In fact, she has been an incredibly popular charter boat because of her incredible flexible layout, elevator, and reliable service.  

AMORE has been extremely well kept and improved over her lifespan. She has had exceptional ownership, keeping her to the highest standard possible. With a completely new top to bottom paint job which is currently being completed along with a full shipyard service, she will be ready for her new owners to enjoy and explore for many years to come. AMORE will prove an outstanding opportunity for any buyer looking for a high-quality pedigree with superb fit and finish, 6 staterooms, large outside deck space, elevator to all decks, and a 4000+ nautical mile range.
