Amel Yachts is a French company based in La Rochelle that specializes in the design and production of luxury sailing yachts. Founded in 1964 by Henri Amel, the company has a reputation for building high-quality sailing yachts known for their seaworthiness, comfort and performance.
The company's flagship yacht is the Amel 60, a 60-foot sailing yacht that was the 2020 European Yacht of the Year. Designed to be sailed by a couple or a small crew, the Amel 60 has an innovative deck layout that allows for easy handling and maneuvering. It also has a spacious and comfortable interior, with a variety of customizable options to meet individual preferences.
Other popular models in the Amel lineup include the Amel 50, which was introduced in 2017 and the Amel 55 was first introduced in 2011. Both models feature the same high-quality construction and attention to detail that characterizes all Amel yachts.
One of the unique features of Amel yachts is the use of a ketch rig. A ketch rigged yacht has two masts instead of the more common single mast found on most sailing yachts. The ketch rig allows for more flexibility in sail handling and offers a more balanced sail plan, making it easier to sail in a wider range of conditions.
In addition to their innovative design and construction, Amel yachts are also known for their focus on safety and reliability. All Amel yachts are built to the highest standards and undergo rigorous testing and quality control processes to ensure they can handle the most challenging ocean conditions.
In short, Amel Yachts is a respected and esteemed name in the world of luxury sailing yachts. Their dedication to quality, performance and comfort has earned them a loyal following among sailors around the world.
