Re: [Amel] "Morning Dove" 46' Maramu has new owners

Hi Jo,

Here goes –

Do you want to actually enjoy sailing? Do you want your family to enjoy sailing? Do you want a yacht that can take you around the world in comfort and ease? Do you want a yacht that enjoys a reputation that is top notch in the industry? Do you want a vessel that has been so well thought out that improvement is relatively unheard of?

Amel is all this and more!

To begin with, she is a forgiving vessel that you will enjoy sailing with electric winches and furling (read ‘no grunt work wrestling sails up and down), an incredibly comfortable center cockpit and a layout below decks that ensures comfort and safety as well as privacy amongst captain/crew with two cabins and two heads, situated at opposite ends of the vessel and has the added safety of water tight bulkheads (fore/aft and engine room). Couple this with the washer/dryer combo, dishwasher and unsurpassed storage, beautiful wood interior and appointments and your wife will be a happy camper! Stainless steel lifelines encircle the decks, a rarity amongst production sailing vessels, and the hard dodger will keep you warm/cool and dry (when coupled with the waterproof canopy). Amels are incredibly well balanced vessels, and when the sails are set correctly, one can sail the vessel with little to no steering corrections.

Dual autopilots are great on passages (long or short) and deck storage is also great for all your lines/fenders/anchors/toys.

In five years of sailing the Supermaramu Millenium 2000 with about 15K nautical miles, primarily just my husband and I (55 and 53 years old) we have never had any real problems with the vessel. The cockpit is dry, below decks is very dry and the ride is comfortable.

Each person has their own set of wants/needs in a vessel, but if you were to purchase an Amel, I think you and your family would have made a great investment for the adventure of a lifetime!

Kim and George

Hi Amel owners,
We're so glad to see that Amel owners are really proud of their yachts and we're looking at them seriously for our family of four to go long term cruising. Can anyone do a "hard sell"on us as to why they're so great? We are of the mind that you're buying a top-notch system, among other things, when you go with Amel, and we like the idea that employees share the ups and downs of the company (ie great service). Apart from that we love how they look & the type sailing they seem to offer :-)
So why Amel Super Maramu? This is the big plunge for us and there aren't many to view in Australia so we'd love your feedback.
Many thanks,
Western Australia (for now!)

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 mine…

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.
