Amel 55 sea chest strainer part#

Billy Newport

Thanks John
Looks like a vetus ftr1320, confirming with Amel before ordering.

The sea chest and strainer are made by Vetus, although the top is a special Amel adaptation.  A quick look on ebay under “vetus strainer” yields a number of different options.

We were cleaning our sea chest strainer for first time since getting the boat and it was pretty dirty but the upper lip on the strainer was also broken and taped back on by previous owner. I'm having trouble contacting Amel for spares whether by email yesterday or by phone, noone answered today.

Is there a spares web site where parts can be ordered or does anyone know if a 3rd party supplies the sea strainer?
