Now
I reckon someone removed the spare halliards  to use the holes for the forward  aerial and the wind transducer. They seem to be occupying the places where my two halliards are located.

Bill Hi,
I am far away from my boat now but checked pictures and my 1997 model #201 is without that extension on the main mast. I am certain that it is original and there was no modification made to the mast top. I took the masts down for the first time since new for repainting (see picture).

If you find one with a replaced Motor, under 60000, it will be a good solid bargain.

Dear Bill and Amel Yacht Owners Group,


Many thanks for giving me the possibility of listening to Olivier Zoom meeting, excellent informative event!
I am not yet an Amel Yacht Owner but interested in the Sharki model.
Will definitely contact Olivier for a survey, once identified good candidate units.

With my best regards,

Re: Check valve on Heat exchanger Raw Water Pipe?

Chris Doucette
 

Yes!  Thank you for helping me figure it- everything has a purpose original or not- and now I know I'm not removing something critical.   Chris


Re: Check valve on Heat exchanger Raw Water Pipe?

 

Chris,

Now that you have your answer, remove the rusty part completely, always use a good fresh OEM quality impeller and change it every 400 hours or less, always cleaning the pump interior, and you'll never have to worry about loose impeller pieces.

Chris,

Thats a "wye" strainer.  Definitely an after-market modification placed there probably in an attempt to prevent pieces of a failing raw water impeller from getting lodged in the heat exchanger.  If you take off that plug, you'll find a basket in there to catch solid bits.  Or, given the condition of the outside, you might find parts of a basket!

Not exactly an elegant implementation, but not a terrible idea.

Reminder: An Amel Survey by Olivier Beaute

When: Saturday, 16 January 2021, 20:00 to 21:00, (GMT+00:00) UTC

Where:From La Rochelle, France

An RSVP is requested. Click here to RSVP

Description:

All,
 
It is my great pleasure to announce that Olivier Beaute will present at our first ZOOM Meeting of 2021. It will be held on 16 January 2021 20:00 to 21:00 UTC. Details:
 
Many members of the Amel Yacht Owners Group trained on their new Amels with Olivier in La Rochelle. Many of us relied on Olivier as the manager of Amel SAV. And, a substantial number of our Group have used Olivier's surveys when purchasing their pre-owned Amels. As most of you know, after a long and successful career with Amel, Olivier Beaute went into the survey business and established ATLANTIC YACHT SURVEY.
 
The topic of Olivier's ZOOM Meeting will be "An Amel Survey." His presentation will last about 30 minutes with 30 minutes for questions. Tilo Peters will monitor, queue, and ask Olivier your texted questions.  
 
This meeting will be very good for all of our members. 
  • Members who own an Amel will someday face having their Amel surveyed. These members will be interested in how to maintain and prepare their boat for a survey and some of the common things that are overlooked by Sellers in preparation to sell their Amel. This will be important information to know in advance of a survey. 
  • Members who are searching for an Amel will need a survey to complete the purchase. These members will enjoy learning more about the survey process, especially the Olivier Beaute survey process. This should be extremely valuable.

I suspect that this meeting may book to capacity and urge you to register soon.

Hi have a look a this- I am trying to identify what it is and why it is in place (it is corroded).  Ignore the relay wired thing- as it is just zip tied there.   I believe it to be a check valve put in place on the raw water hose from the impeller to the heat exchanger.  Later Model SMs with the Yanmar have this elevated (and shaky - makes me nervous some times)  heat exchanger.  In other photos i have found, I have yet to see this device on the hose- it is direct.   HOWEVER- it looks original, as it has the same cloth and glue method that AMEL used to secure all the other hoses.  Also there is a custom stainless steel mount holding it (very AMEL).  Does anyone else have this?  Was it added to some later model SMs by AMEL to address some nuance?  I would love to know-as it is getting nasty and needs replacement or bypassing.

These members will be interested in how to maintain and prepare their boat for a survey and some of the common things that are overlooked by Sellers in preparation to sell their Amel. This will be important information to know in advance of a survey. 
  • Members who are searching for an Amel will need a survey to complete the purchase. These members will enjoy learning more about the survey process, especially the Olivier Beaute survey process. This should be extremely valuable.

I suspect that this meeting may book to capacity and urge you to register soon.

Re: Zoom meeting with Olivier Beaute

 

Hallo Marco, i had a sharki before, now an sm #200, sharkis are Really nice for the mediterranean. I sold her, because i did not like the Perkins 4.108 Motor. Difficult to get spare parts (excerpt parts4engine), and an inch system for the screws, and very difficult to repair, because not much space in the motor room.

If you find one with a replaced Motor, under 60000, it will be a good solid bargain.

MfG
GOETZY, Happy with Amel SadoMaso #200

Dear Bill and Amel Yacht Owners Group,


Many thanks for giving me the possibility of listening to Olivier Zoom meeting, excellent informative event!
I am not yet an Amel Yacht Owner but interested in the Sharki model.
Will definitely contact Olivier for a survey, once identified good candidate units.

With my best regards,
marco baldan

Hi Nick,

we ordered a spare one from Antal through euroomarinetrading.
see mail from them:
From  euromarinetrading:
 
Antal part
 
Does not have crossbar, that was added by Amel. 

Shackle on the car

We have a Bow shackle that fits that car.

752-5/16 – M8

No pin -  no threads,  hole Ø  8,5 mm   

(fits the pin in the car. I dry-fitted it on a similar car we have in stock)

Shackle is actually of the HR quality which is some 30-40% stronger than a standard

Net price             $16.40


It does not have the bar, that is Amel specific modification. So far it works fine.
I was concerned using the one with the broken welding. But you could potentially just get a matching shackle from Budget Marine and have David drill out the thread an weld the extra bar in.

Check valve on Heat exchanger Raw Water Pipe?

Chris Doucette
 

Hi have a look a this- I am trying to identify what it is and why it is in place (it is corroded).  Ignore the relay wired thing- as it is just zip tied there.   I believe it to be a check valve put in place on the raw water hose from the impeller to the heat exchanger.  Later Model SMs with the Yanmar have this elevated (and shaky - makes me nervous some times)  heat exchanger.  In other photos i have found, I have yet to see this device on the hose- it is direct.   HOWEVER- it looks original, as it has the same cloth and glue method that AMEL used to secure all the other hoses.  Also there is a custom stainless steel mount holding it (very AMEL).  Does anyone else have this?  Was it added to some later model SMs by AMEL to address some nuance?  I would love to know-as it is getting nasty and needs replacement or bypassing.
