2017 innovation


An accessible and versatile model

With this model, the shipyard broadens the scope of use and opens up new prospects at sea. While not
aiming to compete with racing yachts, the AMEL 50 promises superb sensations, allowing owners to choose the way they use their boat. A family trip for a relaxing weekend break, a coastal getaway for two or a cruise on the high seas with friends … AMEL 50 is all of the above.

Sloop rigging is added to the range

The AMEL 50 brings a new silhouette to the range, reflecting the desire for change expressed by the La Rochelle company. While maintaining AMEL brand-specific fundamentals, such as safety and manoeuvrability as mentioned above, and remaining faithful to proven expertise, the AMEL 50 will charm those customers interested in evolution but who also remain fond of the brand’s style and elegance.

Opening up without losing what is essential

With this 50-foot sloop, emphasis is on the shipyard’s ability to break with traditional codes while maintaining continuity. While AMEL’s know-how can be detected in every last detail, new horizons are also opening up.

A redesigned hull

Among the innovations on this new model, the choice of a straight, powerful bow is a break from the shipyard’s habits. The waterline is extended to improve performance, making the front part of the boat more spacious.The flat, wide stern, with a midship beam that extends to the rear, offers great dimensional stability and increases comfort at sea. 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.

 Outdoor facilities and indoor space

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. An interior designed by Berret-Racoupeau.

« At AMEL we are all enthusiastic, deeply attached to the history of our shipyard and always striving to continue
to express our know-how and perpetuate the AMEL spirit »

Emmanuel Poujeade

Managing Director, Amel

« The development of embedded techniques such as motorized furlers,
means that manoeuvring a 50-foot sloop is much easier today and ketch rigging is no longer necessary on a
boat of this size»
