Hi Kent,
Thank you for that inpjut - I have managed to talk Paul (owner) into the Maxprop or the Autoprop - I did notice the mechanic had Gori props embroidered on his shirt!!!
 
Thanks again

Hey again, Barb,
The MaxProp can be adjusted within a fairly large range.  One model can be done while the boat is in the water, and the other model requires the boat to be hauled out to adjust.  I understand that the AutoProp can be adjusted by the manufacturer if it's a later model.  My old Volvo wouldn't get up to adequate rpm under load and after much expense I decided that the prop that came from Amel when the boat was new was overpitched for the 78hp.  The AutoProp folks said that the prop number on my prop coincided with their recommendations for the SM with 100HP Yanmar.  Amel said that they used the same prop for either 78 HP Volvo or 100HP Yanmar.  My only recommendation would be to rely on the maker of the prop to determine what pitch and diameter to buy.  The MaxProp does offer the option of being able to personally adjust the pitch significantly if you don't guess exactly right.  When I bought the new Yanmar, I was able to adjust my Maxprop enough
to accomodate the new 110 HP after purchasing it for the 78 HP Volvo.

Thanks Anne and John for your comments. We are upgrading from tne Perkins M80T and Paul was concerned that round top end of Australia due to tides and current the 75 might not be powerful enough.
The main concern right now being the C drive ratio.
The mechanic installing recommends this Gori prop - though the responsibility comes back to our choice of size and pitch - apparently with all the spec info the size and pitch is recommended by manufacturer of prop but one only gets the one go at it - so to speak.
 
Have a great day all.

Hello Mr Hansen,

I just beg your pardon because my english is not very good (french people
are used to that I guess ;-)).

I'am no amelowner yet, but I was one (I owned a Kirk #1 from 1970 and was
forced to sale this wonderful boat in 1995 because of a divorce!). This boat
was really like gold. The age of an Amel boat is not the same age as for a
serial "plastic boat" like Bavaria or some other like that. An Amel of 10-20
years sit not old (so far it would be good maintained!)it is still young,
strong and (quite) perfect!!!

The first question you have to answer is: what kind of sailing I want to
make.
The budget you mentionned (180-230.000 EUR, inkl. VAT) is not enough for a
SM in good condition.

If your are searching in Europe or France, I would recommand Michel
Charpentier too.
And when you want to have a look in the States, Joel Potter is THE man of
your choice.

To buy a boat too cheap is like to give a little bit money at first and
realize after the buying that you have to invest a lot of more money to have
what you wanted to have.

Like a very well knowed sentence in my professional branch (translating and
interpreting!) "when you give peanuts, you'll have monkey"...

I wish you luck and success in your quest. An Amel boat is perhaps not like
gold, but it is really a treasure.

Allways good winds and like we said in Germany "allways six inches water
below the keel"

I have been looking for a Amel Super Maramu for a long time. To be honest,
most of the yacht dealers think that a 10-20 old boat is the same as pure
gold. If you really want to sell a SM, and it is not absolutely worn out or
damaged, then I am seriously interested. I prefer to make a deal with a man
who has sailed his ship for a long time, and knows what is good about it,
and of course what needs fixing.

I think that a well cared SM from 1994-1998 should cost about 180-230.000
Euro including VAT which is the amount that I am prepared to pay.

Re: Wanted a SM

Alain Feuillet <alainfeuillet@...>
 

Gentlemen,

After a review of 5 SM, last year, I replaced my brave good old 1980 SHARKI by the SM N° 26 “PILGRIM” produced in 1990. I paid her around 200K€. She was and she is still in perfect condition. At that time the Volvo D2-75 had 200h, the Onan genset 170hours, both replaced in 2006. Dessalator 400h. In bad weather conditions, under shocks, I have been impressed by the absence of ANY cracking noise which reveals that the structure has not been aging at all. Woods and varnishes are like new.

I thought that the standing rig had been changed and I discovered that only the mainstay has been. I plan to change them now. This is not a recommended maintenance scheme but just to illustrate how robust and god quality was Amel SM production. She had crossed twice the Atlantic before I purchased her.

We are just returning from 8 months around the Med (Corsica, Sardinia, Sicilia, Ionian islands, Cyclades, Dodecanese and back to France) 3400 miles in autumn and winter. PILGRIM was just fantastic.

Before departure we only changed the gears of the Raymarine autopilot drive unit, changed the wall carpeting, refurbished the cushions, installed a Webasto air heater and changed the Dessalator “membranes”.
We faced only one (minor failure): one genset injection pump spring broke, certainly due to water ingress in fuel, consequence of a low use of the genset by my predecessor.

Mainsail and genoa are still usable but I need to plan their replacement in the coming two years.

I sent to Lars 6 links of SM in France ranging from 230 to 190 k€ which is the right price here depending of the age of systems, rig and sails. I observe that all SM owners are so enthusiastic with their boat that they are maintaining them in very good condition. My purchase was a real good one but exceptional. The second hand markets in the US and in Europe may be different.

Hope it helps

Kind regards

Alain FEUILLET



PS I bought my two Amel’s through GRALL YACHTING in La Grand Motte: significant choice of boats, reasonable advisor and good knowledge of the brand

Hello Barb,
I managed to recover the earlier posts with a little difficulty as you had changed the subject to New Yanmar thus foiling the search facility.
I wish you luck with the 110HP even though Kent Robertson broke a drive shaft after upgrading to that size which may have been a contributory cause.
I also note that his conversion did not include the drive brake. When I ordered my SM2K for delivery in January 2001 I paid extra to get the 75 HP Yanmar because I knew that the Volvo then standard was being phased out and if I remember correctly either the existing or new Volvo had a belt driven camshaft with all the risks that involved. My Yanmar also came with an hydraulic clutch hence the brake perhaps.
I was caught in a severe squall with wind speeds exceeding 55 knots whilst at anchor but was able to motor out of the anchorage straight into the head wind with no difficulties apart from 50 yards visibility using less than full power from my 75hp engine. I wish you well with the 110HP version.

Re: [Amel] Wanted a SM

Christophe Lascombes <c.lascombes@...>
 

Hello Mr Hansen,

I just beg your pardon because my english is not very good (french people are used to that I guess ;-)).

I'am no amelowner yet, but I was one (I owned a Kirk #1 from 1970 and was forced to sale this wonderful boat in 1995 because of a divorce!). This boat was really like gold. The age of an Amel boat is not the same age as for a serial "plastic boat" like Bavaria or some other like that. An Amel of 10-20 years sit not old (so far it would be good maintained!)it is still young, strong and (quite) perfect!!!

The first question you have to answer is: what kind of sailing I want to make.
The budget you mentionned (180-230.000 EUR, inkl. VAT) is not enough for a SM in good condition.

If your are searching in Europe or France, I would recommand Michel Charpentier too.
And when you want to have a look in the States, Joel Potter is THE man of your choice.

To buy a boat too cheap is like to give a little bit money at first and realize after the buying that you have to invest a lot of more money to have what you wanted to have.

Like a very well knowed sentence in my professional branch (translating and interpreting!) "when you give peanuts, you'll have monkey"...

I wish you luck and success in your quest. An Amel boat is perhaps not like gold, but it is really a treasure.

Allways good winds and like we said in Germany "allways six inches water below the keel"




Christophe

Subject: [Amel] Wanted a SM




I have been looking for a Amel Super Maramu for a long time. To be honest, most of the yacht dealers think that a 10-20 old boat is the same as pure gold. If you really want to sell a SM, and it is not absolutely worn out or damaged, then I am seriously interested. I prefer to make a deal with a man who has sailed his ship for a long time, and knows what is good about it, and of course what needs fixing.

I think that a well cared SM from 1994-1998 should cost about 180-230.000 Euro including VAT which is the amount that I am prepared to pay.

Re: Wanted a SM

If you have been looking a long time without success, perhaps it's because you're not being realistic about valuations. Most SM owners are not desperate to sell and do not have to discount their boats. For many it's not their first Amel, and some are being sold so the owner can move up to a 54 or perhaps the new 55. Some recently sold SM's have been bargains here in the US with some 2003's and 2004's selling in the low $400's (usd).

If you find a cheap boat, it will probably be a project that you will spend far more on than if you just start with a good boat to begin with.

While we certainly would enjoy a SM, our budget was better suited for the Maramu that we currently enjoy. Amel has always made superb cruising boats, so if you don't find a SM in your desired price range, then perhaps a Mango or Santorin would meet your needs and fit your budget.

I would find a broker knowledgeable about Amel to work with. Not only they can greatly assist in the search, but they can provide you with data provided by sold boats.com, which is the database showing what boats have actually sold for as reported by the brokerages.

Hello Lars, There is an agent in France who is recommended by Amel as he
specialises in selling Amels. I cannot remember his name so ask Amel for
his name and then please remind us all. I think the US market is very
different. Good luck,they are great boats.

lars hansen,

BeBe, hull #387, is almost 10 years old and is pure gold...at least we
think so. And because it is pure gold it is NOT for sale.

I am thinking you will have a very hard time finding a SM in your price
range.

From your message I am guessing that you have not contacted Joel Potter,
Americas Amel Rep, at jfpottercys"at"att.net. He will give you honest

the vertical drive shaft that goes ro the prop shaft.
