AMELIA is a supremely elegant classic schooner launched in 2007, blessed with designer Ed Burnett’s amazing ability to create yachts in the style of an earlier age and which really do sail. With a single minded, even stubborn approach to the concept he has applied his skill to every element of style, substance and detail, thus combining the beautiful lines of a pre-war \"gentleman\'s yacht\" with the comfort, spaciousness and equipment more appropriate to our times. Built of first class materials to the very high standard one would expect from the yard of Martin Brake, AMELIA attracts admiration and compliments wherever she is seen.

The owner\'s brief to the designer of this bespoke yacht was for a fast and stylish vessel that could be sailed with family and friends in comfort. Special attention was given to some particular aspects such as providing wide berths and allowing generous space on deck enabling for example a table to seat 6 for al fresco dining.

AMELIA has every modern convenience including air conditioning and electric lavatories, which together with the spacious interior makes her possibly the most comfortable \'spirit of tradition\' yacht of her size afloat.

She sails like a dream. Her long keel and fairly heavy displacement give her a very sea kindly motion even in adverse conditions. Nevertheless she is fast, for example averaging over 7 knots, nearly 180 miles per day on her maiden voyage from Falmouth to Lisbon.

Yachting World Magazine\'s predicting we could \"expect something special\" with this yacht has undoubtedly been well founded. Moreover - at less than 3 years old, AMELIA’s condition remains faultless and her inventory complete. It would be hard to find a yacht as ready - as there is simply no work to be done.
