Amel 50: simple, safe and technologically advanced

An accessible and versatile model, European Yacht of the Year 2018

Drawn by the “pencil” of Olivier Racoupeau for the Amel shipyard, the Amel 50 brings in the sloop rig to complete the Amel range.

With this 50-footer, emphasis is placed on the shipyard’s ability to evolve from traditional codes. Amel’s know-how is clearly evident in every detail, yet it opens up new horizons.

Awarded European Yacht of the Year 2018 in the “luxury cruiser” category, the Amel 50 continues to seduce customers interested in evolution while retaining Amel brand staples such as safety and ease of handling, Amel style and elegance.

Amel 50 – Exterior

Traditional values and top quality, combined with innovative concepts and modern lines, led to the Amel 50 being awarded the “European Yacht of the Year 2018” award immediately after its world premiere! In addition to this highly honourable recognition, it was also awarded the American award for “Best Yacht 2020”!

Amel 50 – Interior

The Amel 50 comes with a unique layout featuring two large cabins each with a double bed and a cabin with two bunk beds. There is ample stowage space, as always in the Amel, in the wardrobes and lockers, under the beds and sofas. The galley, located in the starboard passage, offers a very generous living area in the saloon, while maintaining optimal ergonomics. The chart table is located to the left of the entrance and communicates directly with the entire saloon.

The Amel 50 has all the characteristics that make it a true Amel

  • Maximum security
  • Easy handling
  • Virtually unsinkable thanks to watertight bulkheads
  • Central cockpit with protected steering position
  • Excellent behaviour at sea, even in bad weather
  • Maximum comfort
  • Central engine compartment and easy access to all systems
  • Plenty of storage space inside and out
  • Rigid cockpit
  • and much more…

In view of the size of the Amel 50, the yard decided to dispense with the tried and tested ketch rig and, as in the past (for example with the Amel Santorin), to equip the boat with a sloop rig that is also very easy to use. Instead, the use of a double rudder system is completely new. This means that the yacht remains completely controllable even in the most demanding conditions!
