Amel 50, European Yacht of the Year 2018Edward Green ▼ | April 26, 2018
While not aiming to compete with racing yachts, the AMEL 50 promises superb sensations, allowing owners to choose the way they use their boat.
Yacht The new AMEL can accommodate six people
The choice of this feature required twin rudders, something new for AMEL, allowing the boat to maintain great manoeuvrability under sail. Extended by the bow sprit, the inverted deck line refines the profile of the superstructure. The AMEL 50 brings a new silhouette to the range, reflecting the desire for change expressed by the La Rochelle company. The AMEL 50 will charm those customers interested in evolution but who also remain fond of the brand’s style and elegance.
The new AMEL can accommodate six people, thanks to the two large cabins each with a double bed and one cabin with bunk beds. There is plenty of storage room; under the beds and the benches, in the wardrobes and lockers. The galley, positioned in the starboard passageway, offers a very generous living area in the saloon, maintaining optimal ergonomics. The chart table is located to the left of the entryway and communicates directly with the entire saloon.
Amel 50 is a popular new model and that's not surprising. It is both a manageable size of yacht for a couple to handle and a lot of exceedingly comfortable and quality built boat for the price. It is a modern-looking design that sails surprisingly well from a yard with decades of experience with building bluewater cruisers. If you're out thinking what to buy, she's definitively something worth every cent. ■
