MY Amaryliss Superyacht Stories 1200x800 With design inspiration drawn from the Belle Époque, Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras, Amaryllis was conceived by acclaimed German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2011, with an interior design by award-winning London-based studio Reymond Langton.

This 78.5m midnight blue steel hull and white aluminium super structured craft boasts classically styled custom made furnishings from Silverlining against a harmonious white, cream and Japanese-themed wood décor incorporating ash, elm and fumed oak throughout. This winning combination serves to accentuate, and indeed underline an elegant and stylish ocean-based escape, imbuing it with more than a hint of last century luxe.

Top line features across her five decks include a spa, gym, beach club and more toys than you can imagine, including two SeaBob F5S underwater scooters, two Jetsurf surfboards, jet skis, wakeboards and a wave runner, destined to satisfy even the most hardcore water sports enthusiast.

With a top speed of 16 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a dedicated crew of 23, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered another dimension; it’s the last word in a slower, more enviable mode of living.

The Captain

Amaryllis Captain Johan Harris hails from Mossel Bay, South Africa – although he now calls Savannah home - and joined the yacht as captain in October 2019 having spent 11 years in the yachting industry.

His career began on sailboats before he made the transition to motor yachts and previous captain stints on board motor yachts Blue Moon, Sycara IV, Freedom and Bella Vita all preceded his appointment to Amaryllis.

A devoted classic car enthusiast, he possesses extensive knowledge of the world’s best cruising destinations and his adventurous nature ensures a memorable trip for all who sail with him.

The Experience

Sleeping 12 guests, accommodation on Amaryllis is spread across three decks comprising an owner’s full beam master suite on the upper deck. Accessed via a dramatic curved lobby, the master offers a stylish study and desk carved from rare English wood as well as a private terrace.

The VIP suite on the main deck features an automatic shoji screen providing access to panoramic views, with three further double cabins and a twin on the lower deck. In keeping with the decorative period detail of the entertaining areas, Amaryllis staterooms also enjoy fine artistic accents and a sense of peace and calm is maintained by the choice of tonal warm, taupe textiles and furnishings.

A state-of-the-art glass elevator at the core of the central spiral staircase transports guests between the lower deck and bridge deck. 

Sybaritic pleasures include a comprehensively equipped gym boasting a spinning bike, treadmill and power plate, a beach club and a spa area where you can while away an hour or two in the Asian-themed sauna, steam room and plunge pool before heading to the tranquil massage zone. Additional ocean activities include scuba diving and deep sea fishing. 

Impeccable Glamour

Those in search of more sedate relaxation will relish the elegant music lounge – complete with elegant Schimmel Pegasus piano – which provides an impeccably glamorous location in which to enjoy after dinner cocktails.

The entertainment system on the upper deck appeals to those in search of an indulgent and relaxed evening while the 5m jacuzzi pool on the sundeck - equipped with an array of jets, lighting variations and a temperature potential of 39c - is the perfect way to round off a vigorous gym workout or partake in an apero by moonlight.

The voluminous main salon is stylishly adorned with sycamore wall panels and discreet recessed lighting. Dining areas include a 12-seater al fresco table for casual lunches while a more formal panoramic circular dining room is dominated by an exquisite chandelier centrepiece, with 360 degree windows making it the most idyllic setting for a gastronomic degustation dinner party.
