Re: New to group
The European equivalent to Joel Potter is Michel Charpentier sadly he does not tend to make regular contributions to this group in the manner Joel does.
Charpentier is held in very high regard across Europe especially for Amel. I bought my own boat through him and found him to be a man of the highest integrity .
Either way you have two first class representatives to help source your Amel.
I would recommend that you make both of these people aware of your plans and they will eventually guide you to the right vessel.
I have sailed a Super Maramu half way around the world either with one crew member or single handed if there is a better boat for the cruising that you aspire to I don't know what it is.
