Re: SM2K dishwasher space


Hi Jeff and congratulations on your acquisition. Unfortunately, the early boats that had the front opening dishwasher, it is no longer available and is not supported for spare parts.  Same thing with the later top opening version. The “brain’ on the top opening version seems to be particularly vulnerable. Any electrical/computer engineers out there who could reverse engineer one? I am told it is a very simple device.


Tom and Kirstin on L’Orient, I could tell by the petulant look on Tom’s face when I showed him how to operate the dishwasher that likely this would be the only time it would be used. If you do convert this space to storage, refridgeration, icemaker or ???, could you operate it one more time to prove that the brain is functioning and then save the brain for me so I can get it reverse engineered?


If you repurpose this area thoughtfully and to Amel quality standards, it will not adversely affect your resale value. I used and appreciated the dishwasher on both of the Super Maramus I was fortunate to own and enjoy. Got the water up to 180F and used less of it than hand washing while being whisper quiet while doing so. That said, about 1/3 of the boats I resell, the owners indicate that

the dishwasher was not used much if ever.


All the best,

Hi All,

Just bought Spruzzo SM#379.  Dishwasher was removed and the Admiral insists I install one.   


Any suggestions?

The most useful domestic appliance on board. It uses less water and frees your sink space. You power it on when you charge your batteries with the generator and produce water by the watermaker. Thank you captain for installing it on board

Cindy actually likes using our dishwasher. Who am I to diminish her happiness?

On SM2K 422, we've adhered to the "keep it original" mantra pretty faithfully. No panels of aircraft breakers, holes in wood, etc. 

10.5 years ago Joel Potter activated the dishwasher to show me it works. That's the last time it was used. Having lived aboard for 9 years now we are pretty sure our habits won't change. We consider it unnecessary and wasteful for 2 people to have one on this boat. We keep wine in it now.

Wondering if anyone out there has re-purposed this space in some clever way. Wine fridge ? Storage ? Something else ?
