The modern lines of the current AMEL range conceal fifty years of know-how, born from Henri Amel’s passion for ocean-going sailing and yacht building.  Equipment and design are constantly evolving to guarantee optimum comfort on board whatever the conditions.

AMEL’s ethos lies in every stage of the construction process, from the choice of materials, the internal finish to the service provided to AMEL customers worldwide.  Each yacht is fully designed and manufactured in La Rochelle, the attention to detail is extreme and owners reap the benefits of this care, sailing their yachts effortlessly in safety and elegant comfort.


Feeling Yachts

AMEL Yachts was founded by Henri Amel who, fascinated by sailing from an early age, dreamed of building yachts that are robust, comfortable and easy to manoeuvre.  Based La Rochelle, the business he created continues to innovate with the new AMEL 50 which, breaking with AMEL tradition, is sloop rigged.  Yet the ethos remains the same: safety and ease of handling in comfortable, elegant surroundings, globe-girdling or coastal cruising.  These features have undoubtedly contributed to the AMEL 50’s award of European Boat of the Year 2018 in the Luxury Cruiser Category.
