Re: Hardtop for Amel 54 and SM

VICTOR MOLERO
 

Hello Seckin.
We did the hardtop for our SM last spring with the invaluable help and advice of our friends from Laddy Anilla. It cost us around 6000, canvas, inox and solar panels included. I can share the expenses in detail, if you want.

Dear Amelian Friends;
I hope all of you had a good season.
This year we sail in Turkish coast in Marmaris - gökova - Gocek.
We spent about 90 days at sea. (ıt is quite long for us as a young family of 3, had a school age girl at 5 years old) 

I wonder about HARDTOP project that is last been discussed in january.

Is there any other friends who implemented hardtop for their boat this summer?

I wonder about the price of the hardtop from those who had previously assembled. (and also the pictures please…)

Hello Halsinger;

 

Nice looking hard top. Do you have more pictures and/or videos that show more detail?

 

Where did you have this top fabricated?

Do you, or anyone, know if the solution is feasible for a Super Maramu 2000? Any idea about the cost?

It's a wonderful improvement, very well thought out.

Dashboard drawings Amel 55 mk1

Joan Blaas
 

Hello,

We are doing a refit of our Amel 55 from 2012 and replacing the instruments etc. I was wondering if anyone has a drawing of the cockpit dashboard with the exact measurements.

I was also wondering if somebody has the material specification of the black panels used on the dashboard.

Thanks,

Re: Autopilot drive on a Amel Maramu 46ft

Can someone tell me which drive unit fits on the quadrant in an Amel Maramu?


Re: Autopilot drive on a Amel Maramu 46ft

Dirk Hazenoot Maramu Huli 171
 

Dear Volker,
 
Thank you for your comment. I've seen your setup. Looks nice. I also checked the Jefa site and saw that a Maramu is too heavy for the direct drive autopilot drive unit type I (30' to 45'). When I want to use Jefa I have to install the direct drive autopilot drive unit type II (40' to 55'). The drive unit type II is 252 mm high and I cannot store that height in the hatch at the quadrant. Too bad because I think I would also be very satisfied with a Jefa drive. Thanks again
 
Yours sincerely
Dirk Hazenoot

Re: Galley sink drain

Joerg Esdorn
 

Further info on this topic.  I just learned that an A55 owner installed a direct drain to a new through hull for the galley sink.   Anyone on this forum?  That sounds like a great solution - furthering the idea that the boat has all the comforts of home.  And given that that the engine room is water tight I see the additional risk posed by the additional through hull as small.   So I’m considering doing the same.  Thoughts?  Do other Amels have more than one through hull below the water line?

Re: which pump?

Scott SV Tengah
 

We have used a variable speed Marco UP-6E on our A54 for over two years.

Without the accumulator, it died within 3 months, with an accumulator, it has lasted almost two years and is still going strong.

Two differences with the A54, compared to previous models, is that our domestic water lines are all rigid (I believe PEX) AND further our toilets are fresh water flush, using a water solenoid. In my extensive conversations with Marco engineers, it appears that those two result in a hammer effect that damaged the seals within our Marco pump.

The pump is great and provides more water than we need. I believe the SM has flexible domestic water supply lines so potentially its not an issue, but I would still use an accumulator.

Re: Autopilot drive on a Amel Maramu 46ft

Dirk,
we do have a Sharki snd did install the second autpilot in the aft compartment as a complete independent drive from our old 6000 system.
The second system is a Raymarine with a Jefa drive. We are very pleased with its performance.

Re: Maramu replacement autopilot drive motor

Here are some pictures of our Raymarine type 2 setup. It’s unfortunate that it sticks out but we are happy with it. 

You can see that the casing have been drilled on the side so that the electric cables don’t exit through the back of the unit anymore.

Re: 12V alternator for D3 Volvo on Amel 54

Ian Fraser
 

Thanks Dean. It certainly looks like this is a common issue with trying to find an isolated ground alternator that fits on the D3……seems the Volvo ones needed to be “modified”.

Ian,
I have recently replaced my alternator with the (expensive) Volvo numbered model. I had to modify (ie machine) the alternator mountings to accept the delrin 'sleeves' that Scott mentioned. I suspect these sleeves were installed by Amel. So be aware that the Volvo numbered alternator does not just fit without modification, even if you do have those sleeves to hand.
Good luck.

Re: which pump?

Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)
 

I'll add that we do not use an accumulator. The variable speed pumps don't need them. I've heard mixed reports about whether or not an accumulator actually messes up the operation of a variable speed pump. At any rate, it's just one more thing on a boat... simplify whenever possible.

Hi Eric,

We've been using the Jabsco Vflo 5.0 (42755-0094) for years now without pressure issues or leaking fittings. It's factory shutoff pressure is actually 60psi. The pressure set screw can be adjusted. The pressures created by the hot water boiler when it heats up cold water and no faucet is opened seem much higher anyway.

You should be fine installing your Shurflo 55. It will move more water so be aware of that when you turn things on wide open.

I was happy with the water volume.

I have on board a Sureflow rated at 55 psi and more volume.

I had bought it a while ago and then realized that the original Amel pump was not rated at such a high pressure.
I wonder what the group thinks of using this pump. If I recall a few owners use the 55 psi pump.

Re: Installing rub rail inserts

Hi Craig,
I was looking into the rub rail rubber replacement and found your last mail to Darren and Karen.
It seems a little late but have you in the mean time already found the 10 to go ahead for an order?

We are very much interested only would like to know what the costs would be for a Super Maramu
Als we have potentially two other SM owners who are also interested.

Appreciate to know if we would still join for a next order
