New Caliper design for the Shaft Brake

The price Amel quoted is 416.24€ plus freight. It is my understanding that Amel is shipping this new caliper now, but I do not know how much inventory they have.
I agree, I like the design. I spoke with Thierry regarding the fit and ease of installation. He said that he could not be 100% sure of the ease of installation, but he assured me that it would install. It is made by the same company that made the older design on your boat. If I were you, I would ask Amel SAV directly, as the answer may have evolved in the last 2 months.

It looks very nice. What was the cost from Amel?
I have some parts waiting to get put together at Amel for shipment. When do you think this assembly will be shipped. Is it for the Kimberlite Amel Super Maramu?

I have been waiting to respond because there were some things developing.
Amel recently quoted a new and improved caliper assembly to one of my clients who originally ordered brake shoe assemblies. I added a photo of this improved calipher here: https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/photo/84614/0?p=Created,,,20,2,0,0
From what I understand from Amel this will be used going forward and that the pads and other parts for the old caliper may not be available anymore. I also understood from them that they were not sure of the difficulty in installing this new part.
I like the design of the new part. As soon as my client installs it, I will post whether there were and difficulties.
