SM - Aft Deck Cushion

Ian Townsend

For those SM owners interested in an aft deck cushion, we purchased this three years ago. It is left outside all the time and is still in good condition. Lies flat, folds up. It fits almost perfectly. The corners just need to be trimmed.

We also had a Sunbrella cover made, and went one further having a teak frame made to measure as a base to keep it all off the deck hence allowing it to stay dry. This has worked perfectly and we have not had to remove the cushions except when leaving the boat for hurricane season.

We were in the same position about eight months ago – all these beautiful cushions seemed to do was take up space!

However my wife, being the ingenious one, suggested we cover the cushions in a waterproof Sunbrella covering.   We did so in Panama and now keep the cushions on 100% of the time even if we have the dinghy on the deck and now we have a fantastic star viewing platform at all times!

Regardless of weather the cushions stay nice and clean. We often just use the Sunbrella covering itself as the functional covering of the cushions, and now rarely take the cover off as it looks so good and is so easy to clean with a spritz. 

I offer this to you because I was ready to get rid of what I considered a nuisance and now they’ve become one of the things we enjoy most on the boat. 



Best of luck!

Dear AMEL Group/ Owners,


I want to sell my sunbed cushions/ upholstery for the sun deck (above the aft cabin) on my AMEL 54 - seen on the pictures.

They are in a very good condition, like new. 

I guess they were never used.


If anyone is interested, please send me an offer or visit us on board.

We are still in La Rochelle for a few days.

No news from cleaning the watertank so far, but Olivier told me, there are 4 (not 3) compartements, means 4 accesses ... :-)
Good to know.


Best regards
