Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel 55 layout

Wow!   Great timing for me.  Thank you so much.   I have to agree with your over-all position that marketing must have gotten too much power after the Master passed away.  Although I have yet to own an Amel, I am a fan of the brilliant dedication to its purpose.  And as a seasoned offshore sailor, I could not understand the layout change to something more like a Beneateau with a forward cabin that is not a serious passage making choice.   Your other details have confirmed an unfortunate move to the mean of production boats.  While my plans have not wavered to obtain an Amel for our planned circumnavigation, I am leaning towards a 54, and make her Bristol. 

Having said all that, I would love to hear from a 55 owner as to the usability of the forward master stateroom during offshore conditions on extended passages.   Thank you all.   You are a very generous owners group.
