Welcome to the Amel Family, Volker and Michaela. You have made a choice that you won’t regret, and you will find all the help you will need getting to know Aquamarine right here. Please never hesitate to ask a question, we’ve all been new to our boats and are happy to help you get acquainted.
Always sign your posts with name, boat name, hull number (SN27), and where you are. That will help us when making recommendations about repairs, parts, and nearby professional help.
Be safe and have fun! We hope to meet you somewhere for a beer/wine/rum and shared cruising stories.
Kent & Iris
St Michaels, MD, USA, heading South soon.

we just registered a few days ago with the Amel Owners Group and thought its no a bad idea to introduce our self.
Michaela & myself (Volker) just bought a Amel Santorin from 1990 (SN 027). The boat is currently in Borneo/Malaysia, however we will bring her back to Langkawi/Malaysia soon.
We are long term expats in Malaysia. Our previous boat, a Hans Christian 43, was sold a couple of years ago because work commitment was too high, however now time is "ours" and we plan to explore the Andaman Sea and in future most likely a "bit" further as well with our Amel.
We took the chance to rename the boat, she is now called "Aquamarine"
I started to read with much interest the mails from the group and enjoy the information shared.
Since our Amel is not quite new, I am sure we will have as well "this & that" to share or to ask the group about some advice.
Greetings from Malaysia
Volker & Michaela
