First of all the early models were certified as French merchant-ships.
This implied that all batteries etc. had to be in the engine compartment
sealed and separated away from all cabin areas.
Initially four 105Ah Batt. Were installed, but the capacity was way too
small, although "Mallamok"s mainsheet winch is manual (which is good).
So to get rid of the list of 2 deg to port, Amel installed the Batt.
Underneath the berth, as it still is today.
We have the 2V Batt. For one season only, but they were performing
The boat is located at Port Toga, a municipal port of the city of Bastia
The wiring was discussed between a local electrician and Amel in La
Rochelle, Amel was very helpful indeed. (Imagine this, the boat is made
in 1989 as SM#3) Try this with another yard.
Amel made many proposals and was very cooperative. We had "Mallamok" in
their yard in Hyeres/Southern France and are fully pleased.
Should you need further info, please let me know, I am in the US quiet
So long, fair winds

Betreff: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Mastervolt Rules
Glad to hear from someone with an older SM, in many ways these are
differnet boats to the new ones. I do believe that Amel solved the
problem of the + 2 deg list to Port by moving the battery bank under
the pilot berth. How did you go about achieving this? wiring runs,
sealing the under berth locker, etc?
Are the 2v Mastervolts as good as they claim?
Where is Mallamok?
