Thanks Roy for posting bimini photos. I have posted some
additional photos in the Bimini Folder of a a very attractive
bimini that I saw in Guadeloupe on a German SM. I don't
recall the name of the boat. It was very well done, attractive
and gave great visibility.

Re: Maramu fuel tank

Jochen Hofmann <jochen@...>
 

To the best of my knowledge this is one of the flaws in the Maramu design -
there isn't any.



We have the same issue on our Blue Song - so far fortunately it hasn't
become an issue !



Has anyone had an inspection opening made for the Maramu fuel tank ?



Any advice would be greatly appreciated !



Fair Winds,

Photos of SM Bimini

rbenven44 <no_reply@...>
 

I took two pictures of a SM 2000 in Auckland, New Zealand last
November, because I liked the look of the bimini, and thought it
would be helpful if I ever decided to make one. I don't remember the
name of the boat, but maybe the owner can recognze his boat. I have
posted them on this web site under SM Bimini. Hope they help you.

Can someone give advice on how to inspect, clean/flush the Maramu
diesel fuel tank? Are there access panels? What is the internal
configuration?

Good morning,
one among the good windvane is Sailomat 601 . It can be installed
center-aft or off-center.
All the info(and there are a lot) can be downloaded thru the site
www.sailomat.com
In case you decide for such a model I can offer you, at a very good
price, my windvane never used.
I am selling it because I am obliged to change my cruising plane.

Re: bimini for Santorin or SM

There is a bimini on my 1998 SM. It consists of 3 crossbars of
stainless tubing. The middle crossbar is attached to the forward
lower mizen shroud. The aft crossbar is attached to the mizzen upper
shroud. The forward crossbar is bent on either end and attaches to
fittings on either side of the hard dodger. There is one other pole
that goes from the center of the middle cross bar to the center of the
forward crossbar. The bimini material is made of a white vinyl that
is cut in the aft section to accommadate the mizzen mast. There are
two zippers on either side of the mizzen, one zipper for the middle
and one zipper for the forward crossbar. The forward crossbar swivels
at the attachment points, and there are two webbing type straps that
attach to either side of the forward crossbar and extend forward to
tension the rig.

Test Sail

P Hall <phall@...>
 

Hi All,
I am interested in purchasing a Super Maramu within the next 6 or 9 months.

I would firstly like to do a test sail in reasonably demanding conditions.

Something like the ARC ( las palmas to antigua) in November this year would be ideal.

It will also be a learning experience for me to get to know the boat also.

I would be prepared to get involved in all aspects... cooking, cleaning, etc, and , of course, I will
pay all of my costs for food, etc.

If any existing SM owners can accomodate me, that would be ideal.

I live in Dublin, Ireland.

Good Sailing
Peter Hall

Galley Space

Thanks Lars, that seems like a sound and logical solution. I guess my
hobby will be shifting from cooking to sailing and shading, and perhaps
some shopping. And, of course, sipping. Thanks eveyone for clarifying
the galley issue for me. Hope to meet some of you in the months to
come.

Be safe,

Jean


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Galley Space

Lars Knudsen <museum@...>
 

Hi Jean



I own a 1993 Santorin which is just about the same as a Maramu. I agree on
using the saloon table as extra space although I have seen a couple of
Maramu's that has been converted from L-shape galley to U-shape galley by
using some of the space otherwise used for the sofa - probably only about 10
inches.



Best Regards

Lars

My apologies on not having my facts straight before posting. It is the
46 Maramu that my husband likes so much. Just to confirm though, the
galley area is the "L" shaped area, and I have no idea what the tray is
for. Thank you so much for clarifying.


Galley Space

anitemaster <a.baird@...>
 

It was very kind of you to refer me to your web site. She is a
beautiful vessel, with a great galley. I am sure you will soon find a
buyer who will love her as much as you have. All the best!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Galley Space

Hi Al and Jean,

As for as I know AMEL have not built a 48' boat. Leonore of Sark is a 16 meter (apx 53') boat, which only recently went out of production. In the past there was a 14 meter (apx 46') ba called the Maramu, which went out of production in the late 1980s and which was followed by the antorin, also 14 meters, which was< i believe built from 1990 to the mid '90s.
The Super Maramu has a big "U" shaped galley- see photos of Leonore. We own a Santorin - at a distance it is difficult to tell the difference between the Santorin and the Super Maramu but the SM has much more interior volume. We have lived on the boat for longish periods and have found no difficulties with the size of the galley but if you are producing anything a bit special in the gastronomic line there is a shortage of preperation space and we use the saloon table. It stays covered most of the time - it is a far too beautiful piece of wood for everyday use! - and has the advantage that you can sit to prepare food for cooking. There is absolutely no shortage of galley / food storage space on any AMEL. In fact the danger is that your possessions expand to fill the available space and i believe we have enouth food stocks on board to survive world war 3! (Aquired before visiting Cuba and then not used because fresh food was available)

Hope this helps

Regards,

Robin Cooter
Belouga - Santorin 004.

Al and I are presently looking to buy our boat and have her ready to go

when I see photos of the 48`s the galley looks so small. Are there
hidden workk spaces somewhere, and what is the purpose of the tray to
the left of the sink. Do owners feel this galley is sufficient?

Thanks for any feedback you may be able to provide and we look forward
