Photos, cockpit seat and table

John and Anne Hollamby <hollamby@...>
 

Hi Eric,
Sorry to have been so long in replying. We do not have an espar or other
heater so I can not help with that.
I have just posted pics of a hatch in the aft cabin top in the SM 319 album
which now has some 26 pics of changes I have made.
One of the best was scrapping the helmsmans chair and putting in a seat
which is on a swivelling but lockable base which also
has gas filled struts to move the seat up and down and in and out. The
actual pedestal can be accessed from New Zealand. I have never seen
any other one with these qualities. This did away with the Amel table but I
got a Swedish mount available by mail order which comes in four parts.
there is a mounting plate which is fixed to the side of the locker astride
the reinforcing web. Then there is a vertical section which slides onto the
plate
and a horizontal section which fits onto the vertical section and another
plate which I screwed onto one part of the Amel table, removing the second
section
andthe hinge. This second part is used when we are more than four for
dinner etc. The table swivels and is lockable in any horizontal position
and of course the height is also variable. I also fitted three teak grab
handles on the underside of the fixed hardtop.
Since then I find that at least 90% of the time the seat is not facing
forward but turned inwards to join in with people in the cockpit. An
additional bonus is that the chair can be lifted off easily to make it
possible to access the big cockpit locker, (which is where the table top
lives most of the time). It is also smaller, comfortable
and, I think, more attractive than the original.

Have a good Christmas, John SM 319


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Outhaul

After much searching I sent a piece of outhaul line to new England ropes. .
They suggested endura braid as a substitute. It works great on my boat. A
trick is to tighten the car using a line from the clew of the main to one of
the mast winches. This will tension the outhaul so there will be little if
any need to further adjust the line. The endura is 3/8 inch.
Fair winds,

I have replaced the outhaul several times over the past two years
cruising, as I experimented with different brands and thicknesses of
Kevlar line. I have discovered that 1) I can't splice worth a damn. I
have replaced Amel's pretty spliced outhaul ends with bowlines. 2) All
of brands of line that I tried - some worse than others, had a waxy
finish on the outside of the line. This is not particularly useful on a
friction drive but it did oxidise off after a couple of weeks exposure
to the elements. 3) To tighten the line, tap the outhaul power control
in the "in" direction without touching the furler control. If there is
slack in the outhaul, you can now remove it by tightening the lashing.
I found it was necessary to do this daily for a few days and then
possibly repeat after a week.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Basic info

Hello all. I am the new owner of a 1982 maramu, hull number 150 I think. I did not get any factory manuals, or any information with or about the boat when I got it. I have gone through the vessel from bow to stern to try to learn all of its secrets, but I have a few(for now) basic questions.

Is there a factory manual, and if so how to get one. If I can't get it from the factory, I would reimburse any other owner the cost to copy theirs and ship it to me.I can provide you with an electronic copy of the manual I have (Maramu # 147) but it does not provide much detail. I am told the Amel service department is quite good, their email address is amel@amel.fr ,

The function of two of the 12 volt breakers, #5 and #8 counting down from the top of the panel. #5 has some type of figure with a green light next to it.This probably activates the clutch to drive the factory refrigeration. #8 is simply blank,This may supply power to the wind instruments and depth sounder. and I thought it might just be an extra, but it is wired to something. I turned them both on and off, but could not make anything light up, pump, or make any other noise.

Transmission type. The heat exchanger of sorts is rotted out and needs replacement. From the design it would appear that this is a common problem.I need to either buy a few, or have them fabricated out of something more durable, ie copper or brass. I have no idea of who supplies the transmission. The engine is a perkins 4-154.I have the same engine and probably same gearbox.(Hurth) The heat exchanger (bolts on to the side of the gearbox) was alloy and went the same way as yours. I had one built of stainless steel and put it back in the same place. Because the g.box housing is alloy I used plenty of Duralac between the two.

The rig tuning specifications, if they are available.Sorry can't help here. A good rigger may be the answer or help from Amel.

My boat does not have a generator, and I was considering installing a small one. Has anyone done this, if so recomended type and area of installation. I am thinking of something in the 4kw range installed in the engine room compartment if possible.I installed a 2kva genset but unconventional and probably not for everyone. I built in a Honda eu20 (petrol, air cooled!) It works well and is very quiet, providing enough for a small airconditioner, hot water but not enough for both at once. It is easily removable for servicing, situated against the port side of the boat in the cockpit locker. It took a lot of messing around to arrange exhausting, ventillation and safety for petrol on board but comes at around 20% the price of a diesel genset.

Thank you all. After crawling all through this boat, I can't tell you how impressed I am with its design and construction. Sales pamphlets are one way to get info, but getting down on your hands and knees really makes you appreciate things.

New aft cabin hatch

John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@...>
 

Hello All,
We found the ventilation in the aft cabin very poor even with the aft
hatch wide open.So we bought a Vetus hatch and had it installed by a
freelance shipwright here in Malta.
He made up a teak mounting to go on the deck to provide a flat mount.
He sealed the balsa between the two layers of GRP with resin and then
cut a strip of white plastic and fixed that to the resin with contact
glue and made up mahogany frame to cover the underside in the cabin.
He had prefinished the mahogany with four coats of varnish.
The total cost was about £500stlg.
The opening is on the port side for two reasons. It is directly behind
the opening part of the windscreen and as we altered the aft cabin to
make a doublebunk across the boat with the pillow end on the starboard
side we did not want the draught or rain to disturb us.
The result is a huge improvement and we rarely open the aft hatch any
more.
We have added two pics at the end of the album SM319 in the photos
section of this site. (Nos 25 and 26).

Best wishes, Anne and John SM 319

I am in the process of purchasing a 2002 SM. The engine is the 100hp

engine and generator. Thank you. Peter Pappas

Re: Crash course on KIRK and EUROS

Firstly, are there any general factors which are typical of Euros
and Kirk which one should be warned of (both positive and negative,
that
is), such as structural, behaviour under sail and/or motor,
rigging,
etc? On this forum there is a lot of info relating to Maramu, but
much less on Euros and Kirk. Maybe some current Maramu owners are
ex
Kirk and Euros owners...?!?

Second, any information, advice, photos or other media which can
help
me understand the boat which I may be about to purchase?

Third and last, how do these boats perform in light breeze...our
north Adriatic can kick up some serious gale force "Bora"....but
most
of the time the wind plays hard to get.

I understand these questions are very broad (and may be considered
vague by some) compared with the detail which I have been seeing in
messages belonging to this forum, but it's a starting
point ....then
we'll worry about the details!!!

Hello Mario,

a short while ago I put some pictures of my Kirk # 81 in the photo
section. Already seen those ?

I own my Kirk now for three years and a good friend of mine own a
Kirk now for 20 years. So there is some experience with the boat
available.

Behaviour of a Kirk in light winds: Light downwind courses need a
spinaker or so upwind courses are no problem. The boat is best in
higher winds and also upwind. The boat ist relatively fast whem
compared on Yardstick. We do win club races quite frequently.

For more specific I suggest that you mail me direct. We have a lot of
photos and some drawings. Also there is plenty of information
regarding renovating a old boat.

If you are planning on using the aft cabin. It is possible for one
person but for the persons too small.

Regards from Hamburg, Germany

If you need more dtailed information please mail direct.


Re: Basic info

Eric,

Concerning the heat exchanger on the engine transmission, mine as well
had worn away. My Perkins has a Hurth transmission, and I contacted
Foley Engines (www.foleyengines.com or 800-23-FOLEY) and they sent out
an exact replacement. Ask to talk to Mr. Foley himself, he'll most
likely be able to tell you which model transmission you have if you
can describe it to him.

Crash course on KIRK and EUROS

etchuuuu <no_reply@...>
 

Hello, G'day, Buongiorno

About 2 years ago, as I was negotiating the purchase of a beautiful
Swedish yacht made by a now closed down boat yard called Vindo, I
read an article about Les Chantiers Amel, which amung other things,
reviewed the SM2000. Being a designer (and sailor, of course), I was
fascinated by the innovative approach of many solutions adopted in
this boat, so I made a concerted effort to see one "in the flesh". I
was driven by pure curiosity, of course, as this boat was well out of
range for me then (and still is). Incidentally, there was one being
exhibited at a boat show in Venice (Italy), which is where I live, so
I rushed off and succeeded in my quest. It really was as magnificent
as it appeared in print. In particular, I found it's hull
proportions and everything above the water to be exactly what I have
always idealized in a boat that size.

My Vindo negotiation was immediately put on standby as I investigated
this new "french" alternative, finding that Euros and Kirk although
evidently a different breed to SM2000, shared those lines and similar
proportions which I found so attractive in SM. Needless to say, KIRK
and Euros are much closer to my target in terms of size and price
too, and have the centre, sheltered cockpit, which is high on my
priority list.

I've been searching around Europe on what is available, at what
price, and after having "touched" about 6 craft and seen dozens in
various ads and classifieds, I have some very general questions.
There is unfortunately very little Amel information available,
compared with what other boat builders in similar categories offer on
past models, which is quite strange when compared to the resources
availble on web alone for boats such as Moody, Wauquiez etc.

Firstly, are there any general factors which are typical of Euros and
Kirk which one should be warned of (both positive and negative, that
is), such as structural, behaviour under sail and/or motor, rigging,
etc? On this forum there is a lot of info relating to Maramu, but
much less on Euros and Kirk. Maybe some current Maramu owners are ex

Is there a factory manual, and if so how to get one. If I can't get it from the factory, I would reimburse any other owner the cost to copy theirs and ship it to me.

The function of two of the 12 volt breakers, #5 and #8 counting down from the top of the panel. #5 has some type of figure with a green light next to it. #8 is simply blank, and I thought it might just be an extra, but it is wired to something. I turned them both on and off, but could not make anything light up, pump, or make any other noise.

Transmission type. The heat exchanger of sorts is rotted out and needs replacement. From the design it would appear that this is a common problem.I need to either buy a few, or have them fabricated out of something more durable, ie copper or brass. I have no idea of who supplies the transmission. The engine is a perkins 4-154.

The rig tuning specifications, if they are available.

My boat does not have a generator, and I was considering installing a small one. Has anyone done this, if so recomended type and area of installation. I am thinking of something in the 4kw range installed in the engine room compartment if possible.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] model identification

Ian Shepherd <ocean53@...>
 

Hi Duncan,

What year is she? The Supermaramu started in 1989 and is indeed 53' overall
(52'10" to be excact). The Maramu was smaller and preceded production of the
SM. There was a parallel production to the SM of a smaller boat called the
Santorin, which looked similar but was 46' overall.

Hope this helps

Maramu chainplates

Mike Gough <mahili_au@...>
 

G'day,

Owner Maramu #147. Recently broke a rear mizzen chain plate. Factory design and built I think, formed part of a rear handrail. Heard a loud bang and the rig trembled. This was during a squall and fortunately nothing was lost. I have moved chain plates to the moulded toe rail so the result should be stronger than original. I warn other owners of Maramus of a similar vintage (1984) to be suspicious of the original design where rear balustrades form the anchor points for back stays.

Regards,
Mike Gough

SM 2000 Fresh water system, hot water heater, watermaker and,antifreeze

John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@...>
 

Hello Mike,
Congratulations on buying a great boat.
To access the water tanks all you have to do is remove the Galley
fridge,washing machine and the fridge under the aft saloon seat so
that you can take off the covers to the three sections of the
tank.The machines can be stacked in the front of the saloon.The
bottom of the tank is at least four feet down so I hope you have
long arms!
How do I know? Amel had to do this to tighten the keel bolts and
they had a long steel bar with a socket welded on the end to do
it.They also had another one with a chisel welded on to remove the
resin sealing around the nuts.
Copy my Subject as above in the search box at the bottom of this
page and read the results, especially 1130 and 1363 for more info.
You refer to antifreeze,I hope you are talking about the edible sort
bought at a pharmacy....the engine sort is methanol and may make you
drunk just before you die.
My boat is five years old and I have never cleaned the water system
and had no problems. The sea water temperature here in Malta varies
from 15 to 30 degrees Celcius so we do not have to worry about
antifreeze.We usually fill it with our 160 litres per hour
watermaker because we hate chlorinated mains water and mains water
here in Malta does not come up to EU standards. When we have to use
the mains we run a lot to waste and then top up the tank with the
minimum needed through a water filter. We then dry the filter
element so that it does not become a breeding ground for nasties.
We have never treated the watermaker with anything other than a
fresh water flush (from the tank) if we are not going to use it for
more than a week. It still produces 160 Litres per hour. We do this
at the suggestion of Olivier at Amel and although we did not believe
him he was absolutely right.
The make of water heater is changed from time to time. Ours is a
Quick and replacing the anode is described in one of my previous
missives and there also pics of it in the Photo section under SM319.
I changed the anode after about three years,the old one had vanished
and I suspect that the new one also dissolved itself within about
three months as the hot water used to fizz when it came out.
Incidentally the reason why I list all the contents of my message
under the Subject heading is to facilitate searches.
I am going to minimise this and check that my broadband connection
is running because the first time I wrote this I hit SEND and it all
vanished as the connection had timed itself out. Two tired fingers!

Enjoy your boat, Best wishes, Anne and John, SM 319


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] model identification

Horst Pause <horst@...>
 

The actual measurement is in metres which translates to 46'. However, it
appears to be that in America a different measurement is applied which
takes into consideration the total, overall measurement. This translates
closer to 48', therefore the American market calls it a 48.

Hope that helps a bit further.

Sorry, did not mean to confuse anyone. I was going by the jpeg images
of
the layouts of both Maramu and Santorin that I obtained last year when
we
were deciding which model to buy. The jpegs that I have indicate that
both
Maramu and Santorin are 48-ft. Apparently they must both be 46-ft.

In that case, what would this guy's 48-ft boat be? Did Amel actually
make a
Super Maramu that was only 48-ft? Or did they also make a late model
Maramu
that was increased to 48-ft?

Wish Amel would post on their website the specs for their various models
over the years. Other boat builders do this.

The Santorin is 13.94 meters, apx 46'. Beam 3.93m It
was the successor to the Maramu which, I believe, was
also apx. 46'.

The Maramu was 48-ft and was based on the previous
48-ft model called
Santorin.

The Super Maramu model was originally described as
52-ft and was based on
the previous 52-ft model called Mango. Then there was
the Super Maramu 2000
(also called Millenium model or SM2) which is 53-ft.

The boat should have either Maramu or Super Maramu
actually identified on
the boat. Every Amel that I have seen has been has
this written
identification somewhere on it. Find the plate
showing the hull number. It
should also identify the model name. In the interior
of our boat, there is
a metal plate reading "Chantiers Amel, La Rochelle,
France, SUPER MARAMU No.
387." Also, on the outside of the hull near the stern
just below the toe
rail, our boat is clearly identified as a Super Maramu
2000.

Don't know if that helps you any.

You could contact Joel Potter; he would know. His
email is

Best,

I'm a broker with a IVAN damaged 48' Amel listed in
Grenada. There is
confusion as to what model this is. Seller insists it
is a
supermaramu. Others believe the 53' is the only
Supermaramu. I'm here
for enlightnment.
Thanks in advance.
