Launched in 2009, Amelie Rose has worked as a charter and sail training vessel and is a familiar and much welcomed sight in harbours from the Solent to Brittany where she has introduced hundreds of folks to the experience of sailing aboard a traditional vessel. With nearly 20,000 miles under her keel she has proved to be a fast passage maker and in 2015 won the St Mawes Pilot Cutter Review proving her mettle against her kith and kin. In 2012 she achieved fame when she starred in the ITV series “The Hungry Sailors”, carrying Dick Strawbridge and his son James from Fowey to Tower Bridge in the heart of London.
Key benefits of her charter life have been a continual and thorough maintenance regime and an ongoing programme of improvements fitting her perfectly to her role and making her the one of the best examples of her type available at this time. At just 10 years old she combines the best features of a new build with those of a vessel that has had the kinks ironed out of her rig and systems.
Incorporated in 2006 Topsail Adventures Ltd was established to finance the build of Amelie Rose and then to operate her as a charter vessel. The business has proved capable of generating turnover in excess of £100k pa and in 2017 achieved a utilisation rate of 94% on a 95 day season with a 78% returns/referrals rate and promotional expenditure of under £750. The business has significant marketing assets including; brand new “responsive” website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest pages, “Pilot Cutter Amelie Rose” brand, clean permission-based email subscription list and many other useful business management tools.
