The exterior design of the vessel, which combines traditional features with modern, dynamic look, was created by Tim Heywood. The Amels 199 overall shape features a vertical bow, gentle tumblehome, winged decklines, and round ports. Decks are configured to maximize choices of outdoor entertainment, relaxing, and dining. The general arrangement creates easy private access from all luxury areas, including the beach club, to outer decks.

The yacht also has “green” features including: a low-resistance hull for good fuel economy; low-power LED lighting; HUG filters to eliminate genset exhaust soot; genset energy output applied to heating fresh water throughout, reducing fuel consumption; ecologically approved refrigerants and sewage treatment plant; fully insulated glass to reduce heating or cooling loads in any outside temperature.
