Amaryllis, launched in fall 2011, features a Reymond Langton design. She offered quite a contrast to Mogambo, docked next to her at the Genoa boat show. Her restrained exterior styling, with a classic navy and white paint scheme, belies an ornate décor inspired by the French Belle Epoque and Art Deco periods. The craftsmanship is extraordinary in a plethora of details that include carvings, stainless glasswork, inlays, antique mirrors, forged iron, silver and marquetry. Thanks to the huge volume, high ceilings and large windows, those details are never overwhelming. Much of the extraordinary furnishing, including a carved mahogany desk that serves as a focal point in the master stateroom entrance, is by Silverlining. The owners enjoy a full private deck. The entrance to the private suite features two curved walls covered in embossed leather that set the stage for that stunning mahogany desk. The large master stateroom beyond is a private location with panoramic views. A sculpted king-size mahogany bed features carvings of generous blooms. Screens in different materials conceal most of the audiovisuals on board, except in the spectacular owner’s salon and the skylounge where entertainment takes center stage with a modern Schimmel self-playing piano and a 105-inch-wide screen. Glass columns, made by Crystal Caviar with antique silver details and built-in lighting, are found in the owner’s salon and in the skylounge where a custom game table by Silverlining is yet another extraordinary piece. Is that Galuchat leather on the backgammon pieces? A spectacular staircase with forged iron banister wraps around the yacht’s glass elevator. The lower deck is also quite extraordinary. The garage houses great tenders. Alongside a 32-foot (9.9-meter) custom Graf Ipanema tender in full mahogany are a Master Craft ski boat and a 29-foot (8.8-meter) Pascoe beachlander tender with a top speed of about 50 knots. The beach club has opening terraces for an outdoor massage at water level, a sauna and the fully equipped gym with a good selection of workout equipment that includes a power plate, hydraulic rowing machine and climbing machines. The sun deck at the very top is a private space. The focus here is the huge contra-flow pool, containing about seven tons of freshwater (which is recycled). On board, 23 crewmembers (including two chefs) tend to this floating piece of art and her 12 pampered guests. The yacht cruises at 14 knots and uses about 3,698 gallons of diesel a day. The bridge deck is a professional space with several offices. The emphasis here is on functionality with big screens and vertical windows. The yacht was in Antigua for two months after spending the early part of the year in Scotland. Available for charter, Amaryllis is managed by Hill Robinson.
