Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Gas struts for fridge/freezer lid and engine hatch

Barry Connor

Hi Jeff,

Sorry, I don’t understand your question about the ‘stem’ fitting. Is this on the bow for the furler?

I was able to get the strut in Martinique at the refrigeration specialist's store. He had a selection of them. Perhaps you could find one at a similar refrigeration outlet locally.

On a separate subject, I see you are 54 #17. I wonder if your stem fitting is the thin 6.5mm version that my 54 #14 had, or if it was built with the "modified" 20mm fitting that Amel installed in later versions. Could you let me know? I'd like to pin down when the change to the 20mm stem fitting begins.
Best Regards,

I am wanting to replace the gas strut for the lift up lid on the galley fridge/freezer.

The original unit does not have a maker name - brand name printed on the strut. On the strut and the same for the lift up hatch for the engine compartment is a symbol of what looks like 3 sails in 3 squares.

Does anyone have information on where to get the correct struts. The pressure on the fridge strut is 300N and the overall length is 410mm.

Much appreciate any assistance.
