Re: Are Amel boats quiet?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I was at the boat show in La Rochelle with my wife two years ago. There we visited a Lagoon, a Hallberg-Rassy (beautiful yacht) and the New Amel 50. As soon as we entered the boats, the loud creaking of the floor boards on the first two yachts could be felt and heard.
With the Lagoon, it must be said that a charter version is always different from an owner version.
A friend of mine wants to buy a catamaran and has the same problem. My objection here is that with a catamaran of similar size and price, the quality has to take a back seat.
In addition, these products are mass produced.
Thank God I own a 20 year old Amel Super Maramu 2000 and I can safely say that it is a very quiet boat. Nothing rattles, the floor is solid and all cupboards still close tight.
It is clear that there is always noise from shrouds, beating sails, ropes and waves while sailing. But these are minimized by the quality of the construction.
You should also not neglect the safety aspect when making your purchase decisions.
The Amel shipyard is also known for this.
