Just to correct the information on the Maramu:
From the mid eighties this model was equipped with electrical furling genoa
and main as well as with a retractable bow thruster.
The difference between late Maramu’s and Santorin’s is therefore mainly the
Amel C-drive system, the winged ballast and some hull modifications – e.g.
it is somewhat lighter and will sail a bit faster in most situations.
