Re: [Amel] Re: Maramu performances by engine and sails

Hi Giogi,

We do not have the vast experience of many other Amel owners but this is
what we have found -

Our boat has been our home and we have seen 9-10 knots under excellent
sailing conditions. Motoring in flat calm at 22-25 RPM 7.5-8 knots. As we
usually are motor sailing in less than perfect conditions we usually do
about 6-7.5 knots with boat at 2500 – 2800 rpms and a genoa/main or both
out. We have the original feathering prop and a 100 turbo Yanmar.

Each yacht is unique and it will take at least 1 to 2 years for you to
determine your yacht’s optimum performance, it is fun learning and tweaking
along the way.

Best of luck!

George and Kim

Thank you Jean Paul for the informations you sent me.
I'm trying to optimize the performances of my boat. I suppose the propeller
has been replaced, I will check now the code to make a comparison with your
data. Regarding the speed under sail, I think my boat is very heavy due to
all the staff stored (she is also my house).

Hope other friends Maramu Owners will send their comments to help me to make

Hi Giogi
I bought a maramu last generation last year.
I have not enough experience to tell You the comportment of the boat under
sail but in good conditions with 12-15 knot wind 135° I made easily 6,5
I traveled in the med and with motor at 2100RPM I sailed on 7 knot. (with
a calm sea, with a bad sea I had to puch to 2500 to keep ± 6 knot)

This ar the references of the original propeller : 20 12 85 C5 RH 16, with
a Perkins 60cv type 4.154.
I'll try to put a picture of the propeller on the forum.
Best regards
