Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dome light in aft lazarette needs replacing


Hi Derick.
When your SM53 #400 was built for me originally, I ordered optional lights for both the cockpit port side locker and the stern locker. Amel had a fairly extensive list of options that we didn’t actively sell but could respond in the positive if someone asked for additions and enhancements.
I can’t remember what these extra lights look like so if they are different than the other lights fitted elsewhere, send a photo to Apres Vende and see what they can do for you. 
When you are finished enjoying Brava, please keep me in mind.

Have fun on your Amel! Joel

Hi all,

After five years of ownership, I just discovered that the aft lazarette has a dome light. How did I find it? I was cleaning out the lazarette at night and noticed a light was on.  Having discovered the dome light, I went to switch it off.  Instead, it just dimmed to about 1/3 the intensity.  I tapped on the dome a little too hard, and found that the glass of the dome was now in 3 pieces, but the light still would not turn off.  Switching off the aft lights on the 24 volt panel did cut the power to the dome light, but otherwise it looks like the switch in the dome light is faulty and needs replacing.

Does anyone know where to get these dome light fixtures?
