FW: Super Maramu dimensions

amelforme
 

Hello Amel owners. Here are some dimensions we can use regarding the Super Maramu.

 

 

 

Shipping dimensions on a Amel 53 Super Maramu of any year of manufacture are as follows. Boat level and standing on the bottom of the keel.

 

14’11”/Top of the dodger

14’5”/Top of the bow pulpit

12’10”/Top of hard dodger base with dodger removed

12’5”/Top of bow roller with life rails removed

3’1”/Widest part of the keel

57’6”/ Main mast length without antennae

43’4”/Mizzen mast length

15’1”/Vessel beam max-measured

 

In my 35 years plus of selling Amel boats, I have been responsible for shipping quite a few SM 53 by truck in North America and by ship worldwide. In most cases I oversaw or actually took the boat out of commission with disassembly at the starting point and recommissioning at the arrival destination. My first advice is DON’T! It is a big job. You must have full faith in the firm moving the boat and they must be absolutely certain of the quality of maintenance and the dimensional characteristics of their equipment. I once had a truck driver chase me around a shipyard with a pistol because I refused to put my clients boat on his poorly kept trailer. Really. Turned out he was diabetic and his blood sugar was giving him fits. He took some insulin and then spent three days correcting the faults I brought to his attention regarding his rig. He did a first class job delivering the boat across the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Seattle. He later did other work for me until he retired.

Life as a yacht broker is seldom boring.

 

All measurements provided by Chantier Amel in January of  1993. I have relied on these figures faithfully but I cannot absolutely guarantee their perfect accuracy. But having worked closely with Amel for more than three decades, I would bet that they are right on the money.

 

I have a document from Amel, faxed on September of 1995, that was drawn by Jacques Carteau, the technical manager of Amel at that time and Captain Amel’s right hand man. It represents the main mast height with full fuel and water and 2240LBS. of gear aboard as follows:

 

63’4”/height above water to the top of the mast

64’1”/height to the top of the masthead light

64’4”/height to the top of the Brooks and Gatehouse wind instrument assembly

67’6”/height to the top of the Amel provided VHF antennae

 

Same caution about accuracy applies but I have used these figures without incident but cannot be held responsible if they are not spot on. I live in the USA. We have more lawyers than engineers over here and they all gotta eat.

 

I hope this is helpful.

 

All The Best, Joel

Good morning Stefano,

I replied to you twice, so looks like my email are going to your spam box.
In order to prevent that add my email addresses to your contacts.
Here is my answer to your email:

Yes this is a picture of my boat.
I did not know there was different shaft.
I just look back at http://nikimat.com/auto_prop_h6.html
on picture 19 (you can do a right click, save as to see the picture number), you can see the Spur’s rope cutter is fixed on a portion of the shaft that is flat (or horizontal).
On photo 56 you can see the reinstallation of the Spur’s.

Here is the Spur’s you need: http://nikimat.com/spare_parts_spurs_marine.html
But prior you need to make sure the Amel part number: 3184 which is: VE DE COUPE ORIN 20 mm ACIER 18/12 MO / V bolt for rope cutter (steel)
http://nikimat.com/spare_parts_c_drive.html
As it will hold the bottom part of the rope cutter.

I suspect the plug that hold the transmission oil doesn’t look like this on yours.
I would make sure it is at the same location than on mine and that there is sufficient place on the shaft as well…

Hope that helps… Alexandre

Kent:

I have a curtain that zips at the top to the canopy that pulls out from the hard dodger. It also fastens to side windows. It has a zipper door and drops vertically down to the cockpit floor. I would post a picture but I am not aboard right now. Will try to do this next month when I am back.

Kent,
  The first cell phone manufacturer that gives the option of turning off the dreaded spell checker will have my business!  (Grin) Thanks for letting me know that the hard dodged can be removed.  I was estimating over 15' tall by scaling the SM drawing online when measured to the top of the dodger.

thanks JP, we also changed now the engine and transmission mounts, engine vibrations are gone, but the vibration of the propellor is still there if we are "sailing fast", but now it starts when sailing more than ~ 7,3 knots, below that no vibrations. when these vibrations start we put in the reverse gear to avoid the propellor spinning. we will not takle any more action on that.

OK… 

In this case, add 2.05 meters to the 65 foot 2 mast height.  

You’ll like the SM and if the wallet can stand a big refit, the comfort is better.  We bought a “lightly” used (9300 nm under the keel) 26 yo SM with many of the high cost work done.  (Engine, genset, standing rigging an masts/booms.)  Then we redid the interior to 2015 standards including the electronics.  Our old 007 is absolutely magnificent with more modern AC (we chose Webasto), new soft goods/mattresses, cockpit enclosure and water maker.

We’re ready and leaving wintering grounds prob on Sat 28th Apr… come on world!!!

Gary,

It was a while ago.

However I believe they were just regular O tings. I would go to a hydraulic shop that does cylinders for bulldozers etc.  they have the big rings.

If you are in Sint Maarten, FKG has a great hydraulic shop. The also made me a hose for my stove covered in braided steel and then rubber.

They also made watermaker hoses for me with hydraulically swaged fittings and 2 hoses for the actuator on the brake.

Hi Eric:  Thanks for the confirmation of what I am seeing in the diagram concerning all the seals and hydraulic fluid being in the end nearest the brake pads.  From your experience were there just o-rings on that business end or were there lip or other types of more complex seals that I will need?

 

Is the diagram posted on this site somewhere?

thanks JP, we also changed now the engine and transmission mounts, engine vibrations are gone, but the vibration of the propellor is still there if we are "sailing fast", but now it starts when sailing more than ~ 7,3 knots, below that no vibrations. when these vibrations start we put in the reverse gear to avoid the propellor spinning. we will not takle any more action on that.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Vibrations Propellor Shaft, engine ?

Herbert,
   I am looking to buy an Amel but have not yet decided on which model yet.  The Super Maramu is very tempting but the size, transportability and mast height all make the 46' models more practical.  I own an inland yard in Florida where I would like to do the refit and there is one fixed bridge to the marina and then overhead wire considerations for the hydraulic trailer ride to my shop.  On this note if anyone might know the total vertical dimension of the SM it would be helpful.  I have looked at the Maramu and like it a lot. The workmanship, the thought put into the design and construction really impressed me.  I like the lines of the Santorin and the transom design would certainly be a nice feature.  I was originally thinking of going with the basic Maramu without a thruster, c drive and the in mast furling.  The input I am getting from experienced owners is that the retractable thrusters are well worth the complexity and maitenance required so I am rethinking all of this.  As a Sanotrin owner could you give me some input on how your boat differs from the Maramu?  Does the Santorini have the more modern underwater lines that the AM does?

Thanks,
James

Ian,

 

Our curtain enclosure zipped to the top panel.

 

Thinking outta the box here: Perhaps you could have some made if you could get access to a 3D printer?  

 

 

 

With best regards,

Bill:

 

The curtain looks original to me. It zips to the fold-out canopy that comes off the hard dodger. It hangs straight down (bisecting the cockpit) and fastens to the cockpit floor, benches and coaming.  

 

I suppose I'll just have to replace them with standard metal ones though having used these plastic ones for a while now, I prefer them. Very elegant. Tres chic. And they break before you can ever rip the curtain material.

One of the plastic fasteners on the enclosure curtain has broken. Does anyone know what brand/type these are? Where can I source them (if possible) in North America?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] boat preparation for summer in trinidad

I left Kristy on the hard at Peakes in Chagauramas for a summer.  I rented an AC unit that mounts on the salon hatch.  I had a guy from Dynamite Che k it once a week, flush the Watermaker membranes. I left all cabinet doors and drawers closed.  The outside was filthy when I returned but the inside was exactly as I left it.

we will leave KALI MERA in Trinidad on the hard for 6 months this summer. Until now we are only experienced how to "winterize" a boat, not to "summerize" it, as we do not know how the boat "behaves" in the hot and humid climate we have some questions.

1.) Should we put the main and mizzen down and store it in the boat or should we just roll it in completely? During the cold season in Europe we always wash it, dry it and store it in the boat, but maybe it is here better to leave it in the mast?
2.) are you using a dehumidifier (if possible we want to avoid that, but we also do not want to get mold inside...)
3.) should everything inside be open or closed (chests...)
4.) is there something special to do to avoid bugs, ants... coming into the boat?
5.) anything else that is important to avoid problems from the humidity / sun

thank you very much for your help,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] In Water Hurricane Lay Up

There's also a nice Morningstar Marina there, but far enough from town that you'd probably want a car.  The price is about the same, but Morningstar has nicer amenities, pool, and a great restaurant.  It is more exposed if a major storm were to land there.

Kent, I assume are you happy with Brunswick Landing. I am considering going there. Do they have the capacity to pull boats out of the water in the event of an approaching storm? Would you want or need to?

Hi Ian.
There is a lift there, but it looked old and not well maintained last time I saw it a couple years ago.  There's a better place to haul out at Tiger Point Marina and boatyard a daysail South in Fernandina Beach, FL.  I would probably leave my boat in the water at Brunswick Landing.  Almost zero chance of getting a direct hurricane hit there and it is well protected.

Hold it down. The attach points are on the floor. Plus there are some on the benches and coaming.

I've visited a canvas shop and gone through fastener catalogues. No luck. Guess I'll try Amel. 

Thanks Bill.
