Welcome aboard Bagabonda Sailing Vessel!
Bagabonda is an Amel Santorin.
An Amel is a unique boat. People who sail an Amel (Amelians, as they call themselves) are, in one way or another, fans of Henri Amel. The story of Amel reads like a thriller. The young resistance fighter of world war II becomes a visionary designer and builder of blue ocean sailboats.
Amels garner unwavering dedication from their owners, earning them the moniker “cult boats” frequently. Some of the design elements are distinctive, and practically all of them, in my opinion, are advancements over conventional boat design.
Between 1989 and 1997, Les Chantiers Amel built around 150 of the Amel Santorins. Bagabonda was the 20th Santorin they produced.
