Amel 50: Preview of my upcoming review

 

Amel 50: First Experience:
I have first-hand experience with many models made by Amel, including Maramu, Santorin, Mango, Super Maramu, 54, 55, and recently I was aboard a 50 for the better part of a week. All of the above models have Amel DNA throughout the yacht and in all of its systems. But, of course, each of these Amel models is different. One thing for sure, as each model was introduced by Amel, the newest model represented a major step forward for Amel and each became part of building Amel's remarkable reputation.

The Amel 50 has Henri Amel's DNA throughout the boat. In my opinion, it is not only the best Amel yacht ever produced, but I am also absolutely certain it will outperform any previous model in all categories, including downwind sailing. I realize this will ruffle some feathers because we all love our boats as I do, but until you test the 50 in every conceivable way, you cannot have an informed opinion. Amel "checked all of my boxes" when they produced the 50. The 50 is going through some minor changes as a result of great owner input and unusual builder listening.

I suspect that Amel will someday soon figure out how to achieve the production numbers with the 50 that they enjoyed with the SM. They are certainly on their way with a huge backlog of sold orders that equate to a 2.5-year waitlist.

The Amel 50 will have an important place in my Amel Book and all of the other things that I offer Amel owners.

Next week I will post a complete review of the Amel 50 on my website: www.AmelOwnersYachtSchool.com

Here is one of the many things I was impressed with. These photos show how Amel integrated solar into the 50 design. The panels glued to the Amel 50 hardtop and are Solbian Flex panels (I have recommended these for several years).

I have done the measurements.  My bow thruster takes 480 Amps.  It seems there are some misunderstandings with most Alternator systems installed on the main engines, and the amount of current you will get out of your GenSet.

1. Your GenSet is usually a 6.5KW Onan, or maybe you have a bigger one, but this has nothing to do with the current supplied to the 24V system.  The current supplied to the 24V system is only a factor of the battery charger/s on board.  If you only have a 60A battery charger, you will only get 60A into your 24V battery system while running your 6.5KW Onan.

2. I don't know about you, but when I am backing into a "Parking Spot",  and I engage the bow thruster, the engine is usually at idle. "Most" alternators, on an engine at idle, don't produce much current.  If you have a 100Amp Alternator, you may get 25Amps at idle, but probably more like 15Amps at Idle.  There might be alternators that provides max current at lower RPM's, but would you want this?  

3.  Rated power output of the Super Wind 350 generator is 350Watts, which is about 12 to 13Amps into a 24V battery system.  

4.  I believe the rated power for the main outhaul and furling motors is less than 1500W.  This is less than a 60A load.  There is no comparison to the amount of current the bow thruster consumes.

So, if you have Lead Acid Batteries, and lets say your capacity is 300AmpHours...  If you use the bow thruster with no alternator, and no battery chargers, it will be over 1C, which is not so good for the batteries.  If you turn on your Genset, and your 100A charger, you are still over 1C.  And if you also have an alternator that is adding 50Amps, you are still over 1C.  

Good reason to get LiFePO4.  These issues go away.

Re: Downwind pole control lines-replacement

amelforme
 

Hello Dave. The lines for the ballooner have two specific peculiarities. First, they have a soft sheath on the outside which makes them easy and comfortable to use. Second, and most importantly, it is a fairly stretchy, by design, cordage.

Once while in La Rochelle conducting a sea trial in puffy wind, the alleged new Amel boat buyers were hard core racers who were very successful around the buoys and were now looking to expand their horizons. They wanted to sail around the world as fast as humanly possible. When the ballooner was set, they were annoyed that the clews would not stay exactly where they were set but moved a few inches as the puffs arrived. I explained to them what my Amel colleagues had told to me, these lines were the “shock absorbers” in the system. Much the same as a boxing glove taking much of the smack out of a punch, the stretchy lines took the pop out of the puffs and limited the shock loading of the fittings on the poles. They laughed this off.

They did not take the plunge and buy a new Amel boat during that occasion in La Rochelle. I did sell them a used one several years later and they changed the ballooner control lines to skinny ones that did not stretch at all. The only good things about that situation were that replacement female fittings on the end of the short poles were still available from the original OEM producer and they didn’t discard the original ballooner lines. Oh, and the skin on your hands grows back quickly.   

 

All the best,

Joel

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for the info.
Scott, you are correct about antenna condition and quality.
I did notice that with the AIS connected to the mainmast antenna the range was better than the mizzen antenna, but both good. 
My VHF works perfectly and has amazing range. Last year I talked to another Amel owner 60 miles away, clear as a bell.

Thanks so much Ryan, that’s great, I had just PM’d Bill, and he didn’t know, so I was resigned to using regular double braid, (which I am sure would work fine), when your reply came in.  i have one good set, it will be nice for them to be symmetrical.    The source might be something to add to the book Bill?   Thank you both for your responses to my queries,  I appreciate it.

Re: VHF antennas

Scott SV Tengah
 

Nick, 

I know this is nicking pits, but check your AIS receiving AND sending range. My A54 came with the Banten antenna on both main and mizzen (VHF and AIS, respectively) and both had failed.

I noticed the failure on the VHF antenna when I could barely hear the admiral on a handheld a few hundred meters from the boat. She could not hear me at all, indicating that a quality cable/antenna setup is more important for transmission. I replaced it all with RG-8X from mast to VHF radio and both reception and transmission improved dramatically.

Same with the AIS antenna. Earlier I'd see boats maybe 10nm away. Now I can see cargo ships 40nm+ away. I am certain my transmission has improved too.

Cheap to replace with a Shakespeare VHF antenna and RG-8X and not too difficult as you can re-use the existing holes in the mast to mount the antenna. Search for my posts on the replacement if you want to do it. You will connect rigging to bonding as a result, but that's not a bad thing as Amel started doing it in 2009.

I used VHF antennas for both applications so the mizzen one can act as a backup VHF antenna. In other words, I didn't get an AIS tuned mizzen antenna.

Hope this helps.

Volvo buys their sensors from Bosch, puts in a Penta box and charges you 5x. Maybe that's the cost of the green paint? :)

Re: Storage Hatch gaskets

 

Pat,

Compression set and set memory were the biggest issues with the D profile gasket I bought to replace the original gasket, and the original had the same issue, except it didn't happen as quickly as the replacement.

My guess is the foam density was the issue, with the Amel OEM being denser. 

Knowing what I know, and  based on my experience with the OEM and a US substitute, I believe I would go with the new gasket used on the Amel 50 and source it from Amel.

Bill, That gasket looks like it would really provide a good seal. My concern about the height of the gasket was concerning the gasket on the hinge side of a hatch. While closing the hatch it would seem that if the gasket was too high ,that the side of the gasket would first come into contact with the frame as you close it, dislodging the gasket as there is only a fraction of an inch space when closed ,between the hatch and frame. That is why I wanted confirmation that it is 1" in height before ordering it. 
Enjoy your time on the 50 ,I am sure it is fun to sail and points well.
