Re: Installing a holding tank Amel Maramu

Sarah & Trevor McIlwaine

Hi James,

Ahhh, no the boat is in the UK & we're currently in Portugal.  

Can I ask if it was timely, costly, and/or involved ripping the boat apart?  

We're heading back to the UK & will be living on board, so wondering how much of a headache it would be.

I have Maramu hull 185 and while there was no holding tank in the forward head there was one in the aft head.  I had it done by a knowledgeable Amel person and can recommend hs contact.  I assume you are in the US?

Hi everyone,


We're in the process of buying a 1985 Amel Maramu & were surprised to find there is no holding tank on it. 


Has anyone installed one in a Maramu? Did you do it yourselves or get a professional?  We're looking at costs, in the water or (I'm presuming it needs to be done whilst out of the water for a through hull)?


Any information or advice would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance,
