The 89m/292ft luxury yacht HERE COMES THE SUN from Amels has left the Dutch shipyard at Vlissingen, the Netherlands following the successful completion of a 16-month refit.


Delivered in 2017, she returned to the Amels facilities in 2020 under new ownership for an extensive refit. During this time, the hull was extended from 83m/272ft to 89m/292ft with original naval architects Azure Yacht Design appointed to create the extension.

On her first voyage, she stopped by in London where onlookers could see her 6m/19.8ft extension which has increased her volume from 2827 GT to 2977 GT and a brand new colour scheme, changing her hull from champagne to navy. Modifications include an extended sundeck aft that now has room for a helipad, and an extended bridge deck aft for two VIP suites to have exterior balconies, plus an extended main deck aft for a 7m/23ft swimming pool and a larger beach club with spa facilities. Other tweaks have been made across the decks to the interior areas and layout.
