The founder of Amel Yachts, Henri Amel, was born on the 16th April 1913 as Henri Tonet. Henri was captivated with sailing at a very young age. In his late teens, Henri began sailing and crewing on small yachts. Shortly thereafter he started building boats at his business in Paris. After the war he continued his boat building activities in Lyon, France. Henri Amel never lost his dream to build yachts that would be tough, comfortable and easy to maneuver and maintain.
