Dave, thanks for the note. In my search of AMEL's I saw Exit Straightly last year with you in Sausalito and your right Morning Dove is an outstanding Maramu.

I was in error Morning Dove was not Henri's personal yacht. My 65 year old memory got the better of me, my error.

Hi Bruce,


From everything I saw on the internet and from a conversation with the broker, Morning Dove seems like an outstanding Maramu and it was an excellent price. Our boat, Exit Strategy, was Henri's personal boat prior to Morning Dove. I'm curious if you know the original name of your boat. Ours was Maramu 3 and was one of the brochure boats.

Hello all AMEL owners and lovers of these great sailing vessels. I joined this site because of my interest in these boats and wanting to learn more. It wasn't long before I knew this was the vessel for me.

Since I live in Alaska it's been an exhausting search taking me to Hawaii, West and East Coast and USVI to find the right boat. May 7th my wife and I finalized our purchase of "Morning Dove" a 46' Maramu in Virginia. If you have seen this boat on Yacht World, well it's no longer available, it's now mineā€¦

Morning Dove was originally Henri Amel's personal yacht. Its last owner has sailed it for most of its life, crossing the Atlantic many times. If anyone is familiar with Morning Dove, I'd be interested in hearing from you.

I plan some upgrades this summer then to the Caribbean in the fall then next spring through the cannel then who knows where! I will be looking for interested crew willing to share expenses so drop a note. morningdove@

I will also be looking forward to this site for is wealth of information and share some of mine.
