The initiative for putting the yacht forward for the Green Passport came from OCEAN Management, a division of OCEAN Independence. The company’s project and management director, Daniel Küpfer, said: “It is time to monitor the lifecycle of a ship from ‘birth to grave’. We also feel that this may enhance the resale value as this passport is set to become compulsory for superyachts in the future.”
Amels Project manager, Sjoerd van den Broek, commented: “Fulfilling all the requirements for the Green Passport has entailed a very large effort from Amels over the past three years and also for all the suppliers and contractors involved in building the Amels 212. Hopefully she will sail for more than a hundred years but at the end of her life on the sea, her materials can be recycled in a controlled and environmentally responsible manner.”
With annual growth of 10% over the past four years, Amels is the largest superyacht builder in the Netherlands. Already 2012 has been a busy year, with three new-builds and two refits successfully delivered on time, and with another nine new construction projects underway.
