A beautifully elegant gentleman’s yacht, Amali of London was built in 1991 using the best modern technology of the time with a Dutch influence in design, built using cedar, mahogany ash and teak. The creator of this magnificent yacht was Sean McMillan, who today is still building both motor and sail yachts to the same proven construction at Spirit Yachts.

Amali offers the most wonderful entertaining space on her decks, with a raised dining area for up to six people and ample sunbathing/entertaining space under her custom made awnings. With two helm stations, one on deck and one below you are able to navigate come rain or shine. 

Spacious and well-thought-out accommodation can be found onboard, with a full galley and large salon with dining area which converts into berths for three if needed. Two double cabins each with wash basins and a separate shower room with electric toilet.

Powered by twin Volvo Penta diesel engines on shaft drives which burn around 5/6 litres per hour giving you a 500 nautical mile range.

Amali has been well maintained in her current ownership with absolute no expense spared when replacing parts. Now ready for her next custodian.
