Amels Custom 78 delivered to her owner

Built-in 62m Custom Superyacht Rio

The custom 62m steel and aluminum superyacht Rio was delivered by CRN in May 2022. The tight, flowing hull lines and near-vertical bow are a striking testament to her remarkable elegance and dynamic, sporty personality. She was designed and built by CRN in close collaboration with the design and architecture studio Omega Architects, who created the exterior concept, and designers Pulina Exclusive Interiors for the interior styling. TWW Yachts represents the owner, while TWW Yacht Management has provided integrated technical advice overseeing surveying and project management through the final stages of construction and beyond through her operational management. At 62 meters in length and 11.2 meters in the beam, this four-deck yacht can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in the owner’s suite and five guest cabins, including two full-beam VIPs – one on the main deck forward, the other on the lower deck – and three suites on the lower deck, namely two doubles and one twin, served by a lift to all decks. There are also nine cabins for the 15 crew. The main salon This true yacht has an unmistakable aspiration: to make life on board uniquely comfortable. The owner specifically requested bright, colorful spaces and a happy atmosphere for the younger family members to enjoy. A vibrant concept with a tropical atmosphere has been developed, where the prevailing optimistic white tones, clean lines and natural materials are set in motion by a judicious mix of lively colors and vibrant decor inspired by exotic motifs. The white walls harmonize with the marine palette, from pastel turquoise to the various shades of azure to furniture and textiles in matching textures. And lovely details – in tones of blue and fuchsia or green and gray – further decorate each deck. Main deck aft Rio’s generous full-height windows form a visual continuum in sync with the elegant exterior architecture. The main aft deck profile revels in harmony with designer Frank Laupman’s signature arches, which protect the deck and ensure guests’ privacy while framing stunning views from the side and stern. Strandklub The outdoor rooms are intended as multifunctional areas for relaxing and sociable moments. This wealth of space includes the aft lounge with bright, airy al fresco dining facilities or the bow lounge on the owner’s deck with a generous spa pool and sun area for fitness use and parties. The wellness lounge has water toys at the beach club, the huge spa pool and cinema zone aft located on the wheelhouse deck. Main saloon dining area The main deck spaces are fully integrated inside and out in a harmonious flow. The cockpit hosts a large, comfortable outdoor living space with a versatile layout that emphasizes the owner family’s desire for quality time together. This lounge and welcome area features furniture by contemporary Italian design brands with a color palette that plays with natural elements such as the sea and the sky, blending with the tropical ambiance. A sliding glass door reveals the palatial main salon. This multifunctional space makes a great social and dining area. Guests are welcomed by an American bar at the entrance, which becomes a bridge between the indoor and outdoor lounge areas. Dining area The dining area is designed for more formal occasions. Its centerpiece, an impressive all-custom round drum table, seats eight and can be quickly expanded to accommodate up to 12. VIP CabinThe full-beam VIP cabin is grand enough to be considered a second owner’s suite. Here, a spacious walk-in wardrobe opens up to another very bright room in white tones and light blue profiling, complete with relaxation zone and desk area. Guests can work there in absolute comfort and peace, even when on cruise – an amenity offered in all the larger cabins, at the direct request of the owner. At the bow, the full-beam garage holds two jet skis, a selection of toys for the whole family and guests to enjoy, an 8-metre Pascoe Beachlander tender and another almost 5-metre tender for the crew, which doubles as a lifeboat. In addition, there is also a 14-metre SACS Rebel 47 tender chase boat. On the lower deck, the Beach Club is a multifunctional lounge area with direct ocean views, equipped with a spectrum of water toys for unparalleled aquatic enjoyment. In addition to the wellness area, which includes a hammam and shower, there is a lounge with bright, cheerful floating poufs shaped like starfish, which guests can enjoy with a large TV that doubles as an interactive board for games and other entertainment. Down from the main deck lobby to the lower deck, a fully equipped gym forms a team fit zone in combination with the bow area. The four en-suite guest cabins consist of a full-beam VIP, two identical doubles and a twin with third Pullman bed, all with whitewashed oak stud walls with dashes of colour. Children’s Cabin With 323 sqm for the exclusive use of the owner, this deck is known for its harmonious symmetries, its great openness to the sea and its eclectic mix of spaces with privacy paramount. To the stern, an al fresco dining area connects to the sky lounge for an unforgettable indoor-outdoor experience. The area includes a lounge zone for relaxed interaction and features some of Italy’s most prestigious design brands. The center is a custom-made round dining table identical to the one in the main deck lounge. Owner’s suite The owner’s suite with 180° windows offers an incomparable sea view. At the entrance, a walk-through wardrobe leads to a beautifully lit bathroom made with premium materials, from Calacatta Vagli Oro marble on the walls to the Crema d’Orcia marble floors. A unique feature is a spectacular bathtub by the windows. Owner’s Suite At the heart of the room, the fully fitted king-size bed has a white leather headboard with a 3D effect from the vertical petrol blue leather inlay. To port, the study area has a desk made to the owner’s exact specifications: it can rotate 90 degrees into an L shape so he can always enjoy the sea view while he works. Upper saloon The wheelhouse deck hosts a spacious outdoor area for guests to relax in the spa zone and have fun in the sun. The fully fitted pool is a welcome feature, raised and with a conveniently integrated sunpad along one side. This highly versatile area becomes a fully equipped outdoor private cinema with a large screen and projector sliding down from the ceiling; it can also host lively karaoke nights with friends. The yacht has a top speed of 15 knots and cruises at 12 knots, she is IMO Tier III certified. Rio will make her debut with a world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show from 28 September to 1 October 2022.
