We are thinking of trying to get into New Zealand later this year on the basis Memo will need a refit. Can any one recommend New Zealand yards that would have experience of Amel yachts.

Hi again Bill,

Attaching a few photos but will post more and explanation how it all was put together.
The 220V from the Victron now powers completely the 220V panel in the galley. 
The generator and shore power go straight from the Amel installed switching devise through the Victron to only charge the batteries.
The 170amp engine 24V alternator is controlled through a Wakespeed direct to the batteries, I will send you photos of the engine room soon.

I can actually simultaneously charge the batteries from - Generator 170amp + Engine Alternator 120amp + Arch solar panels 20amp + Bimini solar panels 12amp. have actually put in over 300amp at one time.


Very Best

Barry

Maybe. if the rep had offered new oven trays and baking dishes I would have gone further with him. Just Kidding.

I will try to post very soon our complete experience with the conversion. I actually fitted the Victron Quattro 8000, all is now working as should.

Thanks, Barry.

I will contact him. BTW, the oven and other dimensions on GN Espace are driven by standard dimensions of pans. As far as I know, no other manufacturer of stoves for boats does this.

"These systems have been designed around the Gastronorm standard sizes of containers used in commercial, professional, and catering kitchens. These standards form the building block of GN Espace's integrated systems. The GN Espace stoves and sinks have been designed to transform the galley space into an ergonomic, functional, and significantly safer place to prepare and cook food while at sea."

Gastronorm (GN), sometimes spelled Gastro-Norm, is a European standard for kitchenware tray and container sizes that is commonly seen worldwide in the catering and professional food industry, as well as in certain parts of the high-end consumer market.

So now you know where the "GN" comes from in their name. Big is not always better, but usually perfectly engineered is BEST.

Hi Bill and All,

When we were looking at electric ovens with induction cooktops the only 2 basic choices were the Ocean Chef 3 from Gn Espace UK and the Horizon 3 from Marine Cookers "Techimpex.tv".
The retail price we found initially was about £4,000 for each from different Marine Suppliers in UK.
We actually spoke to the Techimpex representative in Italy and he gave us a special price of 1,850 euro without tax.

What the main advantage was between the 2 units was that the Horizon 3 had bigger inside width and we could still use the baking trays from our Eno 4 burner gas oven and all S/S pans still fitted on the cook top. The Ocean Chef oven was a smaller width inside and we would have had to buy smaller baking pans. The Horizon 3 as well as the Ocean Chef 3 overall oven is smaller than the old Eno but we have roasted 2 chickens with vegetables. It heats up much faster (200deg in 10min) and holds even temperature constant when set.

We had a lot of back and forth between the 2 companies to get all the exact specifications and measurements. The Ocean Chef rep was disappointed when we pointed out his inside oven measurements were less than the Horizon 3 and that we would need to buy new baking pans. We didn't then try to negotiate any special price with him so I can't say that he would have matched the Horizon 3 price.

As we took all the LPGas out we also bought the Techimpex electric grill which fits perfectly inside our Kumma LPGas s/s frame.
Was fun fitting this, took a few tests to get it inside and are still doing the High Temp Silicone seal. Had to put in a cooling fan to keep the electric switches cool. See Photos. BBQ with lid off.

Bill, I think if you contacted the Techimpex representative "Frederico" that you could get a very good deal for the group. He was relentless in keeping in touch and answering email and queries immediately. 

Very Best

Hi Mark,
I had a lot of work done at Deltaville Boatyard between 2010 and 2016, including the isolated bonding system for the new Yanmar I had installed in Puerto Rico in 2015.  That electrician has moved on (not sure where), but the yard has always gotten the job done right, although at a price.  You might call Keith Ruse ( keith@...; (804) 776-9812 and ask if they have a new electrician who knows Amels. He loves working on Amels, and tried for a while to be a US certified Amel facility...they never even replied, even after I wrote them to recommend him.

If you contact him, tell him I said hi.

Re: Companionway hatch removal

 

I agree that there should be an easy way to do this, and I found a woodshop owned by a New Zealander in Antigua who repairs this door without removing it. Chris Waelen in Jolly Harbour Boatyard, Jolly Harbour, Antigua. Chris works wonders with anything wood. I looked him up because he replaced the veneer on the companionway door of an Amel 54 with a teak veneer. Here is a photo, and here is a link for contact and more information: 
https://preparetocastoff.blogspot.com/p/anything-wood.html. Chris uses a 3M self-adhesive veneer and has choices of several different kinds of wood, including cherry.

I've heard much discussion about renewing the vertical  companionway hatch.  The veneer on the hatch takes a beating from sun and rain. I've seen several boats that had their doors sanded and new veneer applied. The new veneer surface is less than 1/32nd thick and cannot be sanded.  It is an easy process.  A one day DIY project and shouldn't cost more than $100.00 US. (Woodworkers are charging much more)

A better solution - I  cut the door horizontally, in the middle,  reattached the pieces with a piano  hinge, added a gasket between the two halves, replaced the sweep and viola! I can now remove the hatch in less than 5 minutes. (See the results on the attached photos.) Cost was about $100.00 US including the hinge, sweep and varnish.   I have a full set of pictures of the process if anyone is interested

Jeremy,

If you are referring to induction OceanChef3 I'm interested.

Here is quote I got 3 days ago: The cost of our OceanChef 3 zone gimbaled Induction model (with a glass door) is: £3995.83 excluding VAT and the current lead time on this model is 3- 4 weeks from order confirmation payment

Shipment is extra cost.

I asked confirmation is quoted price is before or after Yacht School Clients discount but no answer yet.

Best Regards,

Companionway hatch removal

william reynolds
 

I've heard much discussion about renewing the vertical  companionway hatch.  The veneer on the hatch takes a beating from sun and rain. I've seen several boats that had their doors sanded and new veneer applied. The new veneer surface is less than 1/32nd thick and cannot be sanded.  It is an easy process.  A one day DIY project and shouldn't cost more than $100.00 US. (Woodworkers are charging much more)

A better solution - I  cut the door horizontally, in the middle,  reattached the pieces with a piano  hinge, added a gasket between the two halves, replaced the sweep and viola! I can now remove the hatch in less than 5 minutes. (See the results on the attached photos.) Cost was about $100.00 US including the hinge, sweep and varnish.   I have a full set of pictures of the process if anyone is interested

Jérémy Lajotte,
 

Who would be interested in a group buy for the OceanChef3 ?

For owners who already installed it : how much was it ? GN website only mentions a price starting at ~£2000...

Thanks,

Jérémy

Hi Nicolas,

Mark is busy wrapping up another project so I am jumping back in.  If you mean the SS plate with 3 screws in this photo, it is included with your oven from GN Espace.

Personally, I think double braided dyneema (with polyester core) in this application is a mistake.

4mm Single braid (uncovered) dyneema has almost TWICE the strength as 4mm double braid (dyneema core with polyester cover). Further, with double-core, I am unable to reliably form an eye splice with a tucked cover. If I was concerned about chafe, I would rather have dyneema exposed than a polyester cover.  

Also, I don't think you should rely on the lifting lines to hold your dinghy. I only use it to lift and then use ratchet straps to secure the dinghy.

Dear Thomas, dear Scott,
 
thx a lot for your appreciated responses.
I will do it the same way, but (first) trying Dyneema with a polyester cover to have a better protection for the core.
 
Best regards

Re: mounting 12" chart plotter

 

Herman,

That area behind the B&G analog devices or chain counter is accessible by opening the sliding panel in the ceiling above the galley sink. Inside that panel, you will see 2 or 3 conduits that lead to the Nav Station. Amel left a pull-string inside the conduit and it is there unless someone has removed it.

You can use a cable gland, or there is another solution for the cable which I used. 
My solution: When not in use my cockpit monitor laid face down at the Nav Station with the cable coiled on top. When in use, we brought the monitor and cable through the companionway hatch. No holes to drill. I initially did it this way because I was not certain of the final location of the monitor. Since I also resist drilling holes of any kind, and because this worked so well, it became the permanent solution for me. If I were you, I would try my solution at least temporarily.

I’m wondering if the cable gland could be mounted to the starboard side of the chain counter. Does the void behind the instrument panel extend that far to allow the cables to exit there? I would rather have the scanstrut gland in the vertical plane to avoid water ingress.
