[Amel Yacht Owners] Amel 54 for Sale


Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Craig,

This is perfect.

I know that LONE STAR is an Amel 54 in perfect condition. LONE STAR has been well maintained by loving, caring, and knowledgeable owners.

The fact that Joel is going to be with you on your final ocean passage will enable him to hand over LONE STAR to new owners with complete confidence, and with hands-on experience and  knowledge of the boat. Those new owners will truly be lucky. They will be buying one of the best 2008 Amel 54s, from great first owners and the broker selling her to them is not only Joel Potter, but he has just made an ocean passage in the boat. Fantastic!

Every year several prospective Amel owners ask me to recommend a boat or a broker. I always recommend the Amel Guy (Joel Potter) because he has sold more Amels than anyone in the world and he is the most knowledgeable person regarding Amels. Let me assure you that I will put every person contacting me in touch with you and Joel.

I had a conversation yesterday with a Dutch guy looking to buy a 54 without VAT, possibly in the Caribbean or US. I will see him today and continue the conversation, this time with a discussion about LONE STAR and Joel Potter. If he is serious I will put you and Joel in contact with him.

Good luck. My guess is that LONE STAR will have new owners before you expect it (I hope the new owners keep the name.)

TO: Those people in this Group looking to buy an Amel - This is an Amel that you should look at! It is possible that this will be one of the best Amels offered for new ownership. Even if you are looking for a newer or older model, this is the one you should use as a benchmark against all others.

After seven truly amazing years aboard our beloved Amel 54, LONE STAR, Jan and I have decided to swallow the anchor, at least for a while, as we embark on new adventures.

We have considered our options carefully and have decided to enlist the aid of Joel Potter to find new caretakers for LONE STAR. Joel was the ‘team leader’ in our acquisition process and the good council and advice he gave us as we ordered and outfitted LONE STAR has been borne out as we traveled throughout the Mediterranean and Turkey before an unforgettable Trans-Atlantic passage that was followed by several seasons in the Caribbean and an exploration of the Chesapeake.

We plan to participate in the ARC USA Rally from Tortola to Ft. Lauderdale in May where we will officially import LONE STAR and put her up for sale. Joel will be on board for this final rally in addition to the regular 'salts'. Joel insisted on making the passage to evaluate and make observations about the true overall condition of LONE STAR and to be able to make factual representations about our Amel 54’s ability to keep on moving to the destination of your dreams. We are awaiting Joel’s arrival and inspection of LONE STAR before we set a realistic asking price. Please contact me at 713-898-9830, sv.lonestar"at"gmail"dot"com or Joel at jfpottercys"at"att"dot"net, 954-462-5869 if you have any questions.

I know the Lone Star as we anchored next to them a month ago in Little Josh Van Dyke and had the pleasure of meeting Craig & Jan. We are both from Texas.

I also have an AMEL 54 in perfect condition. BOZO CINQ has been well maintained by loving, caring and knowledgeable owners. It is presently located in the VI’s. It is listed with an outstanding brokerage firm who has sold and knows AMELS. Look at Swiftsureyachts.com for detailed information about the BOZO CINQ. 

TO: Those people in this Group looking to buy an Amel - The BOZO CINQ is an Amel that you should look at! It is possible that this is one of the best Amels offered for new ownership.

Why should this be a problem?  Over the years I have seen every imaginable problem solved by fellow Amel owners.  One of the biggest problems a boat owner can have is the sale of their boat. Certainly one of the most costly. If I know of someone that has a desire to buy and Amel and become a fellow owner I am sure going to tell another owner who might wish to sell their boat  Why would I not share the contact information for the boat that is for sale?

Certainly it is wise for most buyers and sellers to engage an expert on the valuation of any yacht...any brand, any age.  No two boats are ever the same. We all know this. Since every Amel is virtually a clone of the others in the series there is a real logic to sharing this information.  And, don't we all believe that Amel's are very special boats for very special people that actually need an Amel if they are truly going to become world cruisers?

I am 68 and know the day is coming when she will be sold.  She is undergoing a rigorous maintenance overhaul right now by Amel trained specialists.  I now know my lifestyle has changed and I will soon be looking for a small cruising catamaran for short term, regional sailing use.  I will not become the global cruising sailor I once thought was in the plans.  So I too would love to see someone that NEEDS an Amel 54 get a chance to discuss my boat with those that know Amel's best...An Amel owner.

There are probably a handful of truly competent broker/agents that know Amel's and have sailed Amel's and are worthy of handling the listing of our boats. Possibly the answer is to share their names with those that are shopping the global websites in search of a boat that would not meet their needs. I would think that it would benefit this group to create a program where the Amel quality and design are marketed in such a way that any new potential buyer would have a place to find the facts from the owners and agents who act as the arbitrator on the valuation of any specific boat.  

This would be appropriate for every current owner who will one day sell their boat and be fair to every future owner becasue they will know their is a process where they will  have an Amel marketing plan  that will allow them to receive a fair price.

Would one take their BMW to a Mercedes dealer and ask them to sell their car and send them the money?

I wish for Lone Star a fair return for their investment in an Amel.

Warm Regards to all the group,

Duncan Hagemeyer,

Dear all,
 
Maybe we should leave the moderating of this forum to the moderator.
 
I am happy with (most of) the postings I've seen. We sadly enough lost one of our members becaus of "over-moderating" this forum by it's members.
For me it's okay that people discuss their gatherings, the sale of their Amels and even the social things that bond us as cruisers like the plea from Dave Benjamin for support of people in out most beloved sailing areas.
 
So let's develop some tolerance on using this forum. This forum is something precious that's part of the value (and values) of Amel.
 
Best regards,

I agree with Rink.  As many of us are likely to develop friendships as we cruise around, some social/newsy references are welcomed.  Additionally, most of us have held responsible posts in industry so we should manage a broadly spaced latitude in our personal relations.

BUT… I have only been a member for about 2 years and am very much a neophyte here!

Cheers,

Personally I like scanning through all the emails and threads. If there are any that may not hold interest, I'll skip others I devour.

I enjoy the prerogative to choose what I read and the less work the moderators have to do the better. I am fascinated that we are from all corners of the globe with many common interests and respect all comments.

Well done everyone

Bill,
Thank you very much for the very kind words about Lone Star.  We have tried hard to keep her in excellent shape and hope the next owner agrees with your opinion.
