“I've worked on three Amels yachts, and all owners have been delighted with the experience. Having total confidence in our vessel means we're able to design intenaries that push boundaries whilst knowing that the comfort and safety of everyone on board is assured. The boat handled it extremely well. At the time she already had 75,000 miles on the hull, but we didn't have a single mechanical failure the entire ship. Nothing. She's really a superbly built vessel.”
– Fraser Gow, Former Captain GENE MACHINE
