Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] A take on the 55

The structural strength of monocoque construction allows lighter scantlings and reduced overall weight so I find it hard to believe there was weight saving. Perhaps more likely to be trying for the "modern" layout.

I am stunned !!
The structural  integrity of the Amel monocoque was one of the main reasons I bought an SM.
I find it hard to believe that they would stop doing this....and especially for reasons of weight.
How much extra weight would be involved...seriously ?
