Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 2001 Amel SM (Norfolk) HIN 1045353

Duane,

I know all previous owners well. Without seeing her for years, I am certain that there is probably very few Super Maramus this age that are in better condition. I believe if you buy your Amel based on all of the previous owners, you will get a boat as good as the owners. If the previous owners of Norfolk were the following, they are some of the the best owners you could hope for:
Potter - Lorado
Steele - Doodlebug
Hayden - Norfolk

I am confused at the HIN, because that does not seem correct for the SM that I know of as Norfolk...check the number you posted. For instance, the HIN for hull number 387, BeBe, is AMLSM387I203. The digit between the 7 and 2 is the letter "I". This letter indicates the month that the hull was laid up.

We are seriously looking at the boat above, currently in Ft. Lauderdale.  If anyone has knowledge of the boat (good, bad, indifferent) I would appreciate it.  You could email me directly at carlylelk-at-aol-dot-com if you prefer.


I would also be interested in what you think would need to be done for a boat of this vintage (maintenance items other than electronics and rigging).  


What would you have the surveyor check in particular that may not be included in a standard survey?  


Are there any recalls from Amel, or items that have a bad history on the boat?


Thanks in advance,
