An exceptional launch for an exceptional edition! AMEL is taking advantage of its presence at the Cannes Yachting Festival, from September 12th to 17th at stand QSP144, to orchestrate the global launch of AMEL 50, the latest model to leave the La Rochelle shipyard. Another model representing the spirit of AMEL, AMEL 55, will also be on show.

AMEL 50: Why this yacht marks a new trend

Midway between continuity and evolution, the AMEL 50 is a versatile, 15-metre sloop, perfect for coastal excursions and round-the-world trips. And while navigation safety still has pride of place, AMEL has not neglected on-board comfort: wood essences, lighting, atmospheres and contrasts all offer limitless possibilities for relaxation... Everything on the AMEL 50 is an invitation to make the most of good weather: the sundecks extending the cockpit and around the boat, to help to appreciate the pleasures of mooring and water sports.

The new features on the AMEL 50, including her straight bow, bow nose and two-rudder blade, all go towards making this a surprisingly high-performance yacht and always easy to manoeuvre while sailing.Relaxing experiences to share together: this is what the AMEL 50 offers, and her dimensions and price will seduce a new clientele.

Christening of the shipyard’s newest arrival

The AMEL teams are proud to announce the christening of the AMEL 50 in her Indian rosewood version, to be held on Thursday 14th September at 6.30pm on the AMEL stand.The event will feature a speech from Emmanuel Poujeade, AMEL’s managing director, in the presence of the couple sponsoring the new model in the yacht range.

Nomination for the European Yacht of the Year 2018

AMEL 50 has been nominated for the European Yacht of the Year 2018, in the “luxury cruiser" category, organised by the magazine Yacht. The yacht will be tested at la Rochelle on the 23rd and 24th of September and the verdict will be revealed during the Dusseldorf BOOT boat show, in January 2018.
