Re: Amel SM 2000 in the UK
Not sure it is the same boat; can very well be.
I have met & know the lady you mention but have not seen her since I left NEW CAL 3 ½ months ago.
The boat listed on the bulletin board is at this moment the (rough) equivalent of USD150K.

Pretty sure I looked at it a couple of years ago…
The male partner died his lady from South America had inherited and was selling it; but wanted an unrealistic price…………high by even Noumea standards. Ports were uv damaged and needed replacing. Motor was fairly new having been replaced in Japan. Two years sitting in tropical sun will also have taken a toll on running rigging etc.
Maybe price expectations by now have moved to a more realistic level…………..if it’s the same boat

Just returned last week to my boat in NOUEMA - NEW CALEDONIA and noticed on the Marina bulletin board an AMEL MARAMU 46 1986 for sale. The note says that she is ready & equipped for a round the world voyage.

Hi Mark & Nicky,
I’m in a similar position, based in the UK and interested in purchasing an Amel, not sure of the exact model yet but likely a SM.
I’m almost 100% sure that there are no SM's here in the UK.
There are a couple of Maramu’s for sale in London and here in Scotland there is one Amel, a Maramu called Clova based at Ardfern marina. Clova is available for charter through Argyll Yachts.
You’ll be totally amazed when you finally get on board an Amel. They are built like tanks :o)
Your best bet would be a wee trip to the South of France where there are lots of Amel’s on the market and you can see and compare the range. I was initially looking at a Maramu or Santorin but when you get on board a SM, the extra space really impressed me!
Good luck with your search.
