Hi Matt & Jose-Luis,

If all goes according to plan, I will take delivery of my Euros 39 in
December. I do not yet know what the serial number is.

Can you tell me how Amel constructed the decks on this type of vessel? Is
it solid or cored?

What is the standard fuel and water capacity for these boats. The one I'm
buying has 66 gallons of fuel.

The boat, the 1971 model Euros, I'm looking at has a Renault engine.
Any ideas about them? How much trouble to replace with a Yanmar, Volvo or
Westerbeke/Perkins? I have no refrigerator, stove, electronics on it, so
will have to decide which models and types of installations. I also have to
install a holding tank for the head. What is your arrangement? Where is
the tank and where does it vent?

Please keep us up to date on the progress of your Euros.

I installed a danfoss 35 for the icebox below the chart table and it
works well but if I had to do it again, I would remove the box and
install a proper fridge (or 2 fridges). My Euros is a 41 but I think
they perform the same under sail (7-8 knots maximum I got).

I have the workshop manual for the Volvo Penta MD21A (75 HP), but I
do not know if this one is your engine model.

Hi,

I made the down part of the hull. I took off all layers of

I did not want to cover the iron keel with fiberglass because
there
is always leaks, and the keel can corrode without knowing it. I
prefer to see if there is corrosion everytime I haul the boat and
solve it. I spent about 3000 euros in this (made by a
professional).

An advice: To change the cutlass bearing (shaft bearing), you
will
need to move the shaft from stern to bow in order to remove it,
due
to the skeg. That means that you will need to overhaul the engine
in
this case. So, if you plan to overhaul the engine for repair,
take
the opportunity to replace the shaft bearing at the same time. My
mechanic took the measures and made it done in some plastic. In
fact
he asked for 2 units to be done, so I could have an spare one for
the
future.

The engine has the tow hook near the entrance, so you will need
to
dismount the windshield and move the roof forward, in order to do
a
vertical tow.

Hi guys,

thanks a lot for your feedback:)

The Euros#88 I own now, was in the 'drink'without hull out for
the
last 10+ years...sad story-it was rented as trailer and of
course
no
maintenance etc. apparently was twice on the river and the rest
of
her
life in trawler harbor.Painted by hand with the two-pack and
stripped
from 60lt/hr Dessalator watermaker(what model this was?)I have
a
BIG
project ahead but I couldn't resist the lines of this beaut!:-D
AWESOME...and with the oversize rig (EUROS 41)she even won
races.Strange for the ketch, hey?;)

She was equip with the NECO autopilot with the mechanical drive
on
the
port deck next to galley portlight(!!!)Massive unit and such a
hazard
in bad weather?!

After 10+years and 5800Hrs on the motor she make it nice few
miles
trip to the hard stand with 4-6Knts on the top off the tide
idling.
I found heaps of info, manuals even blue print of original
sails
from
1969.
The work will commence as soon as weather permits.
I'm on the budget as many of us but I'll try my best to bring
back
a
little spark to this amazing design.
My last boat was alloy Ovni, sadly lost in Feb. storm in Airlie
Beach,
Queensland, Australia-but this one will see the blue water one
day
again.
I PROMISE:-)))

Please sent photos and any/all info you can get about this

Soon I'll try upload few pics.
But for now thanks ahead to all who can help with any info.

I suggest that you email Amel and they will send you one. Please note that there are two tonages, one net and one gross. Your boat will weigh in at about 23 metric tons.
good luck

Re: {Disarmed} [Amel] new fridge unit Santorin

John and Anne Hollamby <annejohn@...>
 

Hello Phil,
It could be that your fridge only needs to have the system recharged with gas to make it work as new. I assume that you have checked to ensuere that there is enough space above and below the unit to allow good air circulation. Another possibility is that the door seal has broken down or not fitting properly. To check this try sliding a thin piece of card or credit card around the seal. If you can slide it around then that could be part of the problem.

Best wishes, John, SM319

To cut a long story short is there anyone with advice on wich system

Does anyone have the right measures off the fridge space in a Santorin
We want to buy/order the new system here in the Benelux and take it with

And want to buy the biggest model i can get in there?Does somebody had

project ahead but I couldn't resist the lines of this beaut!:-D
AWESOME...and with the oversize rig (EUROS 41)she even won
races.Strange for the ketch, hey?;)

She was equip with the NECO autopilot with the mechanical drive on the
port deck next to galley portlight(!!!)Massive unit and such a hazard
in bad weather?!

After 10+years and 5800Hrs on the motor she make it nice few miles
trip to the hard stand with 4-6Knts on the top off the tide idling.
I found heaps of info, manuals even blue print of original sails from
1969.
The work will commence as soon as weather permits.
I'm on the budget as many of us but I'll try my best to bring back a
little spark to this amazing design.
My last boat was alloy Ovni, sadly lost in Feb. storm in Airlie Beach,
Queensland, Australia-but this one will see the blue water one day
again.
I PROMISE:-)))

Please sent photos and any/all info you can get about this design eg.
rig, specs etc. I think every bit will help.
Soon I'll try upload few pics.
But for now thanks ahead to all who can help with any info.

Best Regards

Hi Matt and Russ,

I have worked in my Euros since 2005. It is a very safe boat and I
would say that it is a solid base for a trip around the world but
of
course it needs to be prepared. It is currently on sale cause I
cannot sail for family reasons, but I keep maintaining and
upgrading
it. I hope I can help you.

There is a hungarian guy - Geza - his nickname is Rotorman and he
started the adventure with his Euros. You can find some logs here.
http://www.meder. hu/eng/logbook10 .htm
http://www.meder. hu/eng/logbook22 _070420-24. htm

I had some correspondence with him but I do not know where he is
now.
He had also a web site but it seems it is not reachable anymore
(www.rotorman. hu).

Best regards
Jose Luis

Re: [Amel] Stoves

Dave_Benjamin
 

In our 79 Maramu we had an EOS 3 or 4 burner that we replaced with a Force 10.
The company is still in business but I am not too impressed with their stoves.

What kind (make, model, # of burners) of propane stove did Amel install

as standard equipment in the 1970's?

I have deleted my comment about Geza because his page about Amel
Euros is not available anymore and what I have found on him is
related to another boat. Sorry for the misleading.

Re: Maramu main traveller

paolo pepere <paolopepere@...>
 

Hi Dave, i'm sure that in Maramu, like in mine Sharki and in all 80'
Amel models, the main traveller was composed by a continuous line moved
by a drum with an handle fixed over a wooden block at the back of the
windshield. There were no stop blocks at the end of traveller,but only a
block on the handle. I think that's the same tat today in SM and Amel
54.

Greetings,

On our Maramu (#29) the previous owner retrofitted a Harken traveller
on top of the existing Goiot track. He reused some of the original
fittings to create standoffs of sorts but the arrangement is too weak
for offshore sailing. In fact one fitting failed due to poor welding.
So we have two choices. One is to properly retrofit the Harken and the
other is to go back to using the original track.

I am asking the Amel community for some assistance. If anyone could
take some pictures of an original Goiot traveller showing the car, end
fittings, and how the control lines are led that would be awesome.

Secondly if anyone has retrofitted a Harken big boat traveller I'd
like to hear how it was done and how well it's worked out
operationally.


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Goiot parts and seals - where to find in North America?

Dr. Seidel <mseidel@...>
 

For Goiot parts for hatches etc., call PRECOURT in Canada. Person to speak to is David and the phone # 1-418-286-2296. He was very helpful. Also he may ask you to take a digital photo and send it to him. Murray Seidel Wilmington NC sundance sm #349

I need new rubber seals and few spare bits. Is there a reasonable
supplier in US or Canada?

Re: [Amel] Leaking a/c in salon

Melbourne <melbourne@...>
 

We had the same problem a year ago with the condensate pan, except
it was in the forward A/C. It was dripping into the forward bilge
instead of flowing through the drain line to the main bilge. I
caulked the pan where it was dripping. So far so good.
