The older Amel, that were smaller boats than today were very particular center cockpit boats:

Most that don't like CC boats are referring to small center cockpit boats where the compromises regarding having that implies a high freeboard and sailors siting on top of the boat, not inside the boat. Amel older smaller boats where CC but sailors were low, well inside the boat and non on top of it.
