I agree with this view.
In the past AMEL did not care about the main stream. They built the boats the way they thought they should be built.
And they had their own in house architect.
Now they have an architect who also works for Beneteau, Jeanneau, etc. And the result is a main stream boat with with some AMEL groove.
