Henri Amel

I like the latest Amels but do you think Henri Amel would like them or roll in his grave?

Re: Henri Amel

He espoused change when needed to make his boats better.. for instance his later models like the SM and the 54 saw increased water line lengths...

The 55 offers a lot of comfort.

Re: Henri Amel

I like the Amel boats I have seen, but my focus has been on used boats prior to 2000.

What, specifically, do you see that might make him upset?

Post photos to show others what you see.

I guess they seem to be getting more complex in their systems which would be counter to the intended goal.

Re: Henri Amel

I do not have good knowledge of the new boats. But... Amel always used simple, proven components. For instance, the 55/64 have Webasto AC/heating. We chose the same components for our SM and can assure you the AC works extremely well.

The windlass is the same Italian manufacturer, the water makers are still from Dessalator AFAIK..

We do not need an ice machine on board...:big grin:
