Re: [Amel] Alternator on Perkins Prima m80

john rogers <jsrogers@...>
 

Rainer, while I have been occupied about how to replace my Motorola Prop
generator, I did not realize that you are asking about the main 24V
alternator. The previous owner of my SM replaced the original Motorola
alternator with a Balmar 65 Amp alternator, Model No. 9024, Serial No. 10713
model, and this has been working without any issues.

Regarding the selection process I found the attached pdf file which may be
of help to you.

John

Hello everybody,On my Perkins Prima mt80 I have a 30amp Motorolla alternator

wich I would like to replace with a Balmar 70amp unit. As I'm in the US

right now I would like to by it here, because it is less than half of what

it is in Europe. Unfortunately I don't have the measurements of the

Motorolla with me and here comes my question: Does anybody know witch Balmar

model has the same measurements as the Motorolla unit? Every suggestions are

appreciated.

Joel, your comments are aways a pleasure to read and we all wait for that

book....

Eric, your hurricane story and your seamanship are both incredible....

Yossi, I was looking over 3 years around the world at every Amel for sale

(Maramu and Mango). Finaly I bought a Supermaramu for 145.000.- Euros(the

cheapest I ever heard of) but invested allready 30.000.- and will invest

another 30.000.- to feel confident with the boat.(all the work done by

myself) A seworthy Maramu will cost you 100.000.- Euros, everything else is

a projectboat

Yossi,



Good luck. I think at that price point you will have a project boat needing

a major refit. Perhaps you may want to consider the Sharki. It's very much

like the Maramu except there is no toilet compartment in the aft cabin.



You will find it far more economical to buy a Maramu that has been updated

than to refit one yourself. Our Maramu had approximimately $130,000 USD

invested in it by the previous owner over four years and we probably spent

another $20K ourselves.

I visited the factory last week where Amel is just building the new 55'. A lot of improvements to the 55'. The 54' will still be available along with the 55' and 64'. Antoine Rioton, Directeur Commercial Adjoint, indicated that they have a number of orders for the new 55' and are just finishing off the last 54' units.

Yes it is amazing how well this blog works. I met another couple last
summer on an Amel Mango, who replaced their alternator with a Balmar and
were very pleased. For me the project has been on a back burner, till I
check my cruising rpm, pulley size and bolt dimensions, etc. However, you
are prompting me to look into it further.

Re: [Amel] Spice Rack bottles

They are made by a German Company called Emsa. You will find the product, as it is sold (i.e. not by it self but on a rotating rack) at

I have not checked but I am pretty sure they are distributed in the US.

Good advice , Dave. For $100,000, even in a soft market, all you will
find is a challenge at best or trouble at worst. Good Maramu's fetch a
minimum of @ $145,000 and up for a boat with no issues. A ready to
cross oceans boat is $165,000 and more.



Be careful Yossi.
