I wonder how you like it and how well it is holding up to everyday use.
Ive been looking at the Amel a little to do some crusing on.
I would be sailing short handed or by myself sometimes so need it
to be easy to sail. I wonder how the workmanship and everything on the
boat has been holding up. It looks to come with most everything you need
so I would have to add to much.
'Cause we all need 54 fters to do a "bit of single handed cruising" on
Close on a million bucks is a big step up from the 23 ft fishing cat as well amel Boats For Sale
Going on how they are holding their value I would say they are holding up very well
IMHO, best PRODUCTION cruising boat in PLASTIC out there. The Amel ticks a lot of boxes in the 'Excellent' column. The only 'bad' thing is the owners, the majority, well, they seem to march to the beat of a different drum. Got hit twice in the same anchorage by the same boat in one day.
There is a good article in the May issue of Yachting World, on the Amel 55 and the concept that Henri Amel developed and followed throughout his long career as a boat designer and builder. I am glad to say, that the current owners of the Amel company, have continued in following the direction set by him.
