Amels is a popular member of the shipbuilding group known as “Damen”. The exquisite interior design of this beautiful yacht was created by the ideas and artistic decorative capabilities of more than one individual – Laura Sessa Romboli and Nuvolari & Lenard. The superyacht now known as “Addiction” took only eleven months after the original hull for the water vessel was relocated to the facility of Amels’ Vlissingen.

Addiction is a luxury yacht that is actually just one of five in their line of yachts that are semi custom designed. This line is identified as “Limited Editions Amels 171″.

Recently released as simply “The Fifth Limited Editions Amels 171″, the company has now decided that it is deserving of a name that is unique to its design and overall level of appeal.
