Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Super Maramu FRIENDSHIP II Hull #415 From San Francisco


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Ed,

Welcome to the group!
I understand the appeal for Friendship II as a project boat.
I am far from an “expert”, but in my opinion, a vessel that has not run in 8 years will end up costing way more than one in working condition.
Engine, generator, all the pumps (air conditioning, fresh water, anchor wash, water maker), etc. will need to be rebuild if not beyond repair…
So if you are on a tight budget, I personally don’t think this would be a good boat.
You also should have a look at Bill cost spreadsheet on the Super Maramu, and this is for one that has always been meticulously maintained…

3 years ago, I met a Mango owner that purchased a project, the vessel was beautifully renovated, but he said he spent 3 times the cost of one in good running condition…

The Maramu is definitely an excellent boat and being smaller will cost significantly less.
Just my opinion.

Looking forward to have you as an owner!
Very smart to be part of the forum prior to your purchase.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Everyone



We joined this amazing group a few weeks ago as we are
looking at Maramus as a strong possibility for us to take
our young family on a world cruise. With a fairly tight
budget I'm quite keen on a project so would love to find
out more about Friendship II. It's amazing what you guys
found out about the owner so quickly. Any pointers on how I
might proceed would be great.



Many thanks



Ed
