The Amel 50 is a centre cockpit global cruising yacht built to the highest standards of safety, comfort and ease of use. Every Amel 50 is built to customer order in France. The 3 cabin, 2 head layout is ideal for cruising and longer stays aboard.
Behind the modern lines of Amel yachts hide fifty years of know-how, born from Henri Amel's passion for oceangoing sailing and shipbuilding. The Amel equipment and design are in constant development to guarantee optimum onboard comfort, regardless of the sailing conditions.
The AMEL 50 on it's release in 2018 won the "European Yacht of the Year" which has firmly placed the Amel 50 as a high quality blue water cruiser. The Amel 50 is a modern design by Berret Racoupeau which encompasses all the Amel features which have made Amel synonymous with comfortable and safe blue water cruising into a 50' cruising sloop with a bright spacious interior layout. The layout has 3 cabins, L-shaped galley and large saloon with chart-table. Choices of fine interior timbers are available, Light Oak or American Walnut.
Sailing performance is not compromised in the Amel 50 with tall mast head sloop rig, Hydranet furling sails, twin rudders and performance keel. The centre cockpit with hardtop and opening roof are the nucleus of the yacht with sail controls and helm all enclosed from the elements for comfortable passage making. The cockpit is also the centre of outdoor living with large dining table and seating for entertaining. A large optional sunbed can be enjoyed on the aft deck.
The heartbeat of the Amel 50, the Volvo D3-110 is housed in the unique centre engine room which is water tight, fully insulated from the boats interior and provides easy access for service. The central engine room is akin to a superyacht and houses all the boats machinery providing quiet enjoyment for all passengers.
The AMEL spirit is behind every stage in the construction process, from the choice of materials to internal finish, along with the service provided to AMEL customers around the world. Fully designed and manufactured in La Rochelle, each unit is delivered by an AMEL technician, with one week to get to grips with the yacht. Owners can familiarise themselves with their new yacht and begin to appreciate the true pleasure of effortless, safe and comfortable sailing.
