TheAmer 116 gave us our first design award. The distinguishing feature of its design and of several others we have proposed, is the arch that extends seamlessly from stern to bow. This solution was hinted by Palmer & Johnson of the time, but made extreme in our Amer and later even more so in Sir Norman Foster’s Rodriquez, extending the arch to include the bow.
The Amber 116 was nominated the ship of the year 2009, thanks to its extremely performing waterlines, reaching 26.5 knots with two little 1800 horsepower engines in line, results that have not been replicated yet in a 36m yacht. It was nominated for the Compasso d’Oro award.
