Bottom two photos showing LE180 hull / casco NB 470, which Polish tug IKAR delivered yesterday. Limited Edition hull

number 468 arrived at the yard in Vlissingen / Flushing less than one year ago. So far AMELS’ entry level LE model has

proved a succes. Popular charter boats. Hull 470 is the 20th in this LE171/177/180 series.

With so many boats sold, “Unlimited Edition 180” seems appropriate  😉
