When it comes to naming a superyacht, the sources of inspiration seem limitless.
Many owners select the name of their spouse or their children. Others opt for themes, such as romance and affection. Of course, movie-themed names remain popular as well (e.g. John and Jeanette Staluppi and their James Bond yacht selection including DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, CASINO ROYALE, and Benetti yacht SPECTRE, Project FB269.
The multi-yacht owner of 83-meter Amels motor yacht HERE COMES THE SUN, has an inspiration. In specific, it is music. It is somewhat obvious to most Baby Boomers. Obviously, songs by The Beatles.
The owner had two other yachts. First, the 47-meter Heesen yacht LET IT BE. Second, the 65-meter Amels Limited Editions 212 yacht IMAGINE (now INFINITE SHADES).
In a way, the name seems entirely appropriate. This yacht is a behemoth. Additionally, she seems to be the size of the sun. In specific, in silhouette against the evening skyline. She is the new flagship of the fabled Dutch yard. In addition, the first Amels Limited Editions 272. The yacht comes in at 2827 gross tons, more than the 95-meter Lurssen yacht KISMET (2700GT).

As a kid, I used to love going to the beach on Key Biscayne in Miami. The concession stand had the best snow-cones in town, and the long, paved path along the edge of the beach was the perfect place to ride my bicycle.
