Amore Mio was designed for loving speed – the naval engineers at Heesen gave her a top speed of 30 knots. The sporty and elegant exterior look came from the pens of Omega Architects. The third design party is Cristiano Gatto and his design team.

Heesen constructed her semi-displacement hull in full aluminum and equipped her with two MTU 16V diesel engines, gyro stabilizers, and active interceptors to name some key features of Amore Mio.

“The motto is simple: power with comfort.”

The sun deck features a flybridge the typically high-end yacht “standard” like a dining, lounge area with armchairs and a special for the chef: Teppanyaki – a style of the Japanese cuisine.

The build captain developed the Man Overboard (MOB) Rapid Reaction System. If someone noticed a man overboard, the person can push one of the multiple buttons placed around the yacht to open the hatches, dropping life rings in the water, to trigger the alarm on the bridge and crew areas and to record the position in the card plotter.

The tender garage will house a 5.90m mahogany tender by Swiss boat builder Boesch.
