Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Looking for a Super Maramu 2000

As a recent SM buyer (July 2017) here's my recommendations on who to contact when looking for an SM:


In Europe:  Michael Charpentier http://www.yachtworld.com/mcyb/mcyb_0.html

In Caribbean:  Caraibe Yachts JP Bahuaud/Stephanie Dupland http://www.caraibe-yachts.com/fr/broker-detail.php?id=3  

JP works out of Guadeloupe and Stephanie Dupland is in Martinique in Le Marin literally next door to the Amel Offices.  I worked mainly with Stephanie Dupland on my purchase and it was an absolute pleasure.  She even helped me AFTER the sale was closed getting the boat ready to bring back to the USA.  Not something you generally hear about working with a boat broker!

Good luck in your search!  And last, use Olivier Beaute as your surveyor:  http://atlanticyachtsurvey.com/  He's absolutely fantastic.

Hi everyone..
Lovely group you've got
here with an amazing amount of good information to hand. We
hope to contribute in coming years as we
cruise. 
I am looking at a 2001 SM
currently for sale in Europe. We plan on long distance
indefinite cruising with a family. The boat, for some reason
has had it's anchor locker floor cut away, the agent
suspects it was rotten.
Has anyone experienced this
same issue? Just seems a bit strange as I've not heard
this before on a SM.
Many thanks in
advance
James 
SM buyer!

Hi,
There is a fellow in Guadeloupe called JP. If you contact the Guadeloupe marina concierge she knows him. He knows many Super Maramus for sale. There is also Joel Potter he  I am sure can find you a boat.

Hello AMELians,
 
I want to upgrade my AMEL from a Santorin to a Super Maramu 2000 ;-) So, I'm looking to buy a Super Maramu 2000.
 
Does anyone know a SM2000 in good conditions which is on the market or will be soon on the market? I already searched on yachtworld.
 
I'm currently in the Caribbean. But I'm willing to travel to Europe.

I would choose Manoel Island Boatyard, Malta over di Ragusa, and did in 2013. Larger assortment of parts/material, more experience, and less price.

Hi everyone;


We need to haul out in May 2018 for our bottom paint, bow Thruster and C-drive  service. We also need to change out our batteries and possibly install an arch and solar. Looking for recommendation of yards and outfits that you have worked with and can recoomend in southern Sicily, Malta area. I have read most of the discussions on battery selection on the forum. Would appreciate recommended suppliers in the med or other areas that can ship to the med.

VAT in Martinique

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

As I remember my last trip to Martinique, at least some, maybe all, of the venders removed VAT when I gave them a copy of my US documentation. I remember specifically this happened when I bought a new dinghy at Caribe?.

I asked Gaetan (Martinique Rigger) about this. He says, "Yes it's correct, all the Boats from USA get the VAT out of the final quotation." Maybe some vendors are allowed/licensed to do this without you purchasing a permit.

I would love to hear from one of you that's there now.

We are planning on arriving in Le Marin by evening of 15 JAN. Probably spending a week, Gaetan will be re-rigging. Look forward meeting all. One advantage of being on a little bit of France is the bubbly is very affordable.

Some confusion, Mike Ondra and I co-own Aletes, we both are still working at real jobs (well, sort of).
