Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Santorin Manuals?

Congratulations on your Santorin. A very fine boat. I don’t believe there was ever a Santorin manual. I had a downloaded version of the SM annual which I found invaluable.. you just ignore the sections that the Santorin doesn’t have (dishwasher, washing machine, generator dessalator etc.) I believe (but willing to be corrected) that most other parts were the same as the SM - sail gearboxes and motors, windlass, bow thruster, C drive, rotary autopilot, ballooner poles and setup and many other things. If true then the Santorin is very well over engineered, which is a great plus.
Anyway, there are one or two original Amel plans on the Yahoo site which are worth downloading.
Otherwise, there are quite a few of us ‘smaller sisters’ on the Amel owners sight always ready with support.
For my part, if you are planning ocean passages - try and acquire the ketch. I never had a ketch before, but very glad I have one now. Extremely versatile for short handed sailing.
The Santorin is the biggest boat I have owned and is a dream to manoeuvre in and out of a tight space.
