Amel 60, The Spirit Of Amel In A New Enhanced Version

The new Amel 60, a big sister to the Amel 50, has been officially launched this autumn.

In a dynamic evolution and complementary to their range, Amel launched a larger model, with a higher specification and built with attention to details. Riding on the success of the Amel 50, of which more than 55 have been sold since September 2017, the Amel 60 is an enhanced version of the new Amel design (9 hulls yet sold).
