The win­ner of this year’s ex­clu­sive Bac­carat Su­pery­acht World Tro­phy is the 55-me­tre Amels Elixir. The award was pre­sented to her owner at the Monaco Yacht Show at an event hosted by Da­men and Amels aboard the yacht. The Bac­carat Su­pery­acht­world award is pre­sented each year to the per­son, the yacht or the yard that has most in­spired Su­pery­acht World’s readers.

“Elixir is a won­der­ful ex­am­ple of Amels’ hugely suc­cess­ful Lim­ited Edi­tions range,” said Paul Ash­ton, ed­i­tor of Su­pery­acht World. “The yacht is the perfect il­lus­tra­tion of how an owner’s vi­sion, along with the cre­ative pow­ers of ex­te­rior de­signer Tim Hey­wood and in­te­rior de­signer Laura Sessa, come to­gether to pro­duce a unique and char­ac­ter­ful yacht.”

“Bac­carat is proud to present the tro­phy to the new Amels yacht Elixir, an ex­quis­ite ex­am­ple of crafts­man­ship, el­e­gance and unique­ness,” said So­phie Cotelle, Bac­carat’s light­ing and fur­ni­ture busi­ness unit vice pres­i­dent.

“Elixir had a lot of cus­tomi­sa­tion in a short timescale of only eight months,” said Rose Da­men, sales man­ager at Amels. “The owner’s idea of ap­ply­ing jet-black gloss on the su­per­struc­ture is un­usual, but the re­sult cre­ates re­ally en­chant­ing con­trasts. When we de­liv­ered her on bud­get and ahead of sched­ule, the owner’s team re­marked on the high-qual­ity crafts­man­ship.”
