Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Davits for a SM

We have the Solar/Gantry. Ours has the lateral braces, which I believe are now standard with the package. If not standard, insure you spec them in the buy.
However, carrying the dinghy in the Emek davits is not a perfect fit and you will need to attach 2 jamb lines (fore and aft of the dinghy) to prevent the dinghy from swaying to and fro and ragging during passage. We tried a couple of times y in davits but it is not very convenient. Our annex is an alu AB 9.5 (37Kgs) with a Yamaha 2 stroke 15 HP (also about 37Kgs). Anything much larger might not fit.
We now haul out the engine into the aft lazarette and carry the dinghy inverted atop of the forward cabin.
If you choose the EMEK unit, ensure you get triple swivel blocks to haul out the dinghy. You can also rid the aft deck of the passerelle trapeze and use the dinghy swivel blocks to hoist the passerelle.
