I hope no one took my own inquiries about the layout of the 55 as derogatory -- I'm in love with Amel and chomping at the bit to land one. I didn't mean to bring the group down a rabbit hole or anything.
Just doing my own assessment of pros and cons of 54 v. 55. I would be in heaven with either. This is almost a Sophie's Choice -- unfair to have to choose, but chose we must.
I have never participated in a yahoo group before that displays so much knowledge and passion about their brand. If there's anything positively clear about the last few days of discussion, it's that everyone who owns their Amel and participated in these threads is loyal and passionate about Amel and protective of its reputation. I'm extremely impressed by that. Thank you for jumping on my neophyte questions with such much energy. I know it is all constructive and well motivated and I certainly do not compare these with with "B" word boats. I could not live with myself for settling for such a thing. I only meant to compare layout trends and not build quality, reputation, over-all value, etc.

I think before we all run off half-cocked on stories and rumors, about how far Amel has fallen, maybe we should actually look at what Amel says. This is cut and pasted from their current Amel 55 web brochure (link here: http://www.amel.fr/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/AMEL-55-standard-equipment-January-2016.pdf)
That very much sounds like their tried and true production techniques to me… Always remember—half of everything you read on the internet is wrong, and the rest is suspect!
