I cannot tell you how Amel wired your lighting. I would start by finding the circuit breaker that controls that light and see if it working. However I had a similar problem on Kimberlite in my forward cabin. The wire started in a cabinet in the forward cabin. I had to lift up the glued down material, As I followed the wire I stuck a straight pin into the wire to measure the voltage between the wire and the ground wire.
The wire did not have voltage under the material. I then followed the wire along the moldings that ran along the cabin side. They routed out the molding to accommodate the wire. Still nothing under that piece of molding.
The wire continued under a piece of molding that ran across the cabin top inside.
I finally found a break in the wire and fixed it.
In other areas of the boat I see that they ran wires under the headliner.
I would start by checking the breaker and then tracing the wire. It will probably follow a similar path as I have described either under molding or headliner or other fabric. They were quite cleaver in routing these wires.

Yes mine as well from the salon main panel however I discovered more breakers....
If you haven't done any electrical work I find it odd that the positive leg is dead...zero volts right?
