Discussion in 'Amels Yacht' started by christo303, Jan 29, 2004.
One of the most majestic yachts around : the 1996 Montkaj. She measures 75 meters, 246 ft.
She a regular feature in the South of France where you can usually see her at either Cannes, Monaco or Antibes.
She was designed by Terence Disdale who was a Bannenberg pupil, many years ago.
