May 2014 : departure of AMEL 55 Arctic "Owl"
AMEL 55 ARCTIC "OWL" has just left La Rochelle for a 2-year navigation around the north pole. Her first challenge will be to cross the north-east and sail in northern Siberia. She will then have to cross the north-west above the American continent, and sail back to La Rochelle. This Amel 55 has been prepared for this expedition and she remains faithful to the AMEL tradition of great comfort !

AMEL 55 Cabriolet
The new version of the AMEL 55 was introduced on the last Paris and Düsseldorf boat shows. The cockpit shelter has been redesigned and a convertible version is now available, with a fixed windshield and a foldable bimini, still offering a good protection against water and sun, but with the choice to have a more opened cockpit and steering position. This new version will meet our current and coming customers' demand, giving them the choice between an AMEL 55 with a hardtop option (for extremely well protected navigations) or with a convertible cockpit (to fully enjoy open air).
The aft part of the 55 also has a new design : the bathing platform is larger and now folds up to cover a large part of the transom. The steps aft are also longer. The possibility to install electric davits for the dinghy is still available.
