When we did the gear boxes we just did the brushes
However both the I mast furler and Genoa curlers died. The latter full of water the former was a short in the armature
Bugger! So I have just had both motors rebuilt. (We are heading in to the pacific early June)
The guy who dealt to the motors said he could build two new ones if I wanted but someone in the Amel group when I asked if anyone new a source for the motors response that I should just rebuild cause that’s what they did......so I followed that advice. I now have two completely rebuilt motors at cost of $1100 NZ or about us$750

John, did you use your existing electric motor? Or did you get a new one? If new, what was it ie. manufacturer and model?
Ian & Margaret
Below are the details of what I put in to my Santorin
The same gearbox goes in the mast and on the boom out haul
We had a second issue recently but found the aluminium peg that links the in mast foil to the gearbox had snapped so had a new one made by a local engineer from a hi tensile aluminium
The gear boxes have worked fine and were sourced from bonfigilioli in Auckland
We can offer the following gearbox to suit.
1 x VF44P 70:1 P63 B14 B3 $325.90 net + GST.
This is usually supplied as a raw aluminium finish however we can paint it using a two pot epoxy if you’d like. Allow an extra $45 + GST for this and 1 – 2 days for the paint to fully cure.
Parts available ex stock NZ.
For the DC motor, we’d need to know power, voltage and speed in order to offer a replacement.
Prices exclude GST and freight.
Please see attached dimensional info for reference.

Photos are attached. 4.jpg has the best picture of the gear box.
Let me know if you need more
The part number came from a fellow in Europe who has the same gearbox on his boat and he says he got a gear box with that part number from the UK
Thanks for your enquiry regarding a replacement Bonfiglioli worm drive. If you can please provide photos of the gearbox as well as any motor details available I’ll have a look into what we can offer.
