Henri's old boat is for sale in Ft Lauderdale.  I looked at it, but had to be careful to not step on any rat crap.  The boat was a mess.

There is one mango for sale (renissance is the boat name) i hear it is in great shape and much cheaper than the price you are currently looking at

Hi All,


Thank you for your inputs. Regarding Nirvana rigging it seems that two spreaders mast can be associated with in mast furling only.

Yesterday I was on Mango # 66/87 which is for sale. It is nice, clean and maintained unit with original cover fabrics, running rigging, sails and electronics.

I liked the vessel very much, but I can see in addition to purchase price around 50k € costs to outfit the boat for blue water cruising – to bring it up to date. As the boat is on sale for over 2 years and owner is fixed with the price, I am wondering whether cca 150k € purchase price (170k € set price) + outfit costs aren’t too much for a 25 y.o. boat where plenty of gizmo’s is up to be expected. I.e. Yesterday on the test, during the engine startup its vibrations did break the main power cable tired clamp on the Battery bank so the boat lost the power source completely. Owner, his friend and I did locate a problem and did fix this within 20 minutes, what I like to do very much; but the question remains …


Thank you for your help so far,

Hi Tadej
as a long time SM owner (since 1995 same boat) and several atlantic crossing, I'm glad to give you my input concerning your question:

"Is the boat rolling on long ocean waves going downwind as it is quite narrow for its length?" Not so much, specially with the genua and balloner rolled out with the two poles the boat is well stabilized.

80 hp enough ? Yes ! Speed in flat water, no head wind, clean bottom and fix prop: 8.4 kn with 2800 rpm, 7.5 kn with 2300 rpm, 6 kn with 1900 rpm
( Max speed anyway: 2.43 * SQR 12.60 = 8.6 kn )
Hope that helps
SM # 16 Tamango 2

Betreff : [Amel] AMEL MANGO and OLD VIDEO

Hi all,
I am looking for some data over the older model AMEL MANGO and would like to get as much information as possible; there is quite scarcity of data on internet available.
I found a nice page on which there is an old 45 minutes long video of factory tour (must be from 80-ties) - and Mango shown on production line.
Can anyone advise me on the Nirvana rigging; I found some Mango models for sale which have two spreaders main mast as well as some with single spreader mast. I found some old posts regarding this but they were never properly answered. Is there a difference also in sail size or?
If anyone can share data about their Mango would be glad to receive it (manual, polar diagram etc.);
I am wondering why such a renowned boat yar
d does not have all the data available on their homepage. The only yard to my knowledge with all the data online is Hallberg Rassy.
Some questions:
- Is the boat rolling on long ocean waves going downwind as it is quite narrow for its length?
- Is the installed 80HP Perkins too weak for today's standards? Can anyone suggest what are the actual cruising speeds at given RPM with clean boat with original propeller and with some other type if installed (I've read on older posts that original propeller is 1" too small).
Thank you very much for your inputs.
Cheers, T
