Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Viewing Amel 54 - what to look for?
I truly am not aware of anything that I would consider Amel specific problem areas. Every boat has design considerations that appeal to some and not to others. Other than design related issues, the rest are maintenance related. It is an extremely well thought out vessel that we will enjoy for years or decades to come and will probably never buy another vessel. That being said, the reliability of this or any vessel depends on the level of care.
Good luck with your search.

Apologies, I'm Scott.
Thanks for the recommendation on the surveyor. The boat I'm looking at is in France, so I'll reach out to Olivier and mention that you sent me his way. :)
I'm visiting her without the broker/surveyor for the first look to determine whether to move forward with the survey. Your tips are helpful and it'd be great if you (and others) could note any Amel specific problem areas.
I understand the Volvo D3-110 can cause headaches if bad fuel is encountered. I also understand they revised the engine to take care of these problems, but unsure when those revisions were made?
