Thanks Victor,
I appreciate if you share the detailed price figure.
And I am also interested in photos of your hardtop.
Thanks in advance

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.

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…)

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.

Re: Galley sink drain

 

The Amel 50, 60, 55, 54, SM & others have a gray water tank that is filled by gravity-drained gray water. The tank has an automatic pump which pumps gray water overboard.

Sooner or later you will sell your Amel. Modifications contrary to long-standing Amel design that you might consider smart will be looked at by a large number of buyers as devaluing the Amel.

So, maybe it isn't smart.

Joerg,

I learned that the Amel 50 has a separate grey water tank.

"All tankage is housed under the cockpit sole, including a grey water tank set in the bilge sump, which collects waste from all sinks and showers, serviced by a float switch for automatic emptying. This system ensures a dry, clean bilge elsewhere".

Have you considered copying this setup? Or does anyone has images / drawings of the grey water system on an Amel 50?

Hi Seckin , 

We had a carbon fibre hard top made for us this year by FYS in Porto Cheli. Complete with solar panels , LED lights , solar screens at the side and back and for this winter we have designed a winter enclosure ( not unlike the original SM winter extension to the Amel Bimini but with far more headroom . )
We love it . It has taken an already generous cockpit to a new level . 
That’s the good news . The bad news is that the man who made it has sworn never to make another ! He is a perfectionist . A keen sailor of a fast catamaran , he has built a number of carbon fibre hard tops for catamarans but this was his first SM hard top . I think it took him a lot more time than he had anticipated . As his last hard top it is a real tribute to his skills 

I have posted some pictures on this site and will rustle up some more —- but not just now as it’ s raining in Kilada !

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.

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”.

On 16 Oct 2021, at 02:38, Dean Gillies <stella@soundthinking.com.au> wrote:

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.
