Amel 54 2008 Hull 102 for sale in South France


tony wells
 

Amel expert and principal of Yacht School, Bill Rouse, was onboard in May 2019 and commented “Balthazar’s condition is in the top 10% of Amel 54’s that I have seen”.


We have only owned Balthazar since October 2018 and hugely appreciate her extraordinary qualities. However our plans have changed and we’re now offering her for sale in impeccable condition, at an attractive price, initially to the Amel community. Significantly discounted price for private sale €400k (vat paid in France from new, UK flagged now). This will likely be increased to circa €440k if offered via broker.

Balthazar was originally specified with the Comfort Plus Pack in addition to the Opacmare hydraulic passerelle & Dessalator 24/240v 100 litre per hour water maker.

Lightly used in the Med, renowned Amel surveyor, Olivier Beaute, concludes his survey of October 2018, stating “a good boat”. Since then we have invested in comfort, safety & preventative maintenance improvements, listed in the attached document and including a full Nav technology B&G upgrade & additional autopilot in July 2020.

Tony,

So sorry you are leaving us - that is a superb deal at €400k.

That will sell in a day if anyone has any sense.

Thanks Peter, much appreciated. 

With the fantastic spec / condition and brand new (last month!) B&G total refresh (including second auto helm, radar and 16 inch plotter in fabulous custom-made casing at helm) then I hope Balthazar is a great deal for someone. I’ll stop there. That’s my sales pitch ‘credits’ all used up I’m sure....!!

I’ll certainly miss the fantastic knowledge and generosity of this forum - thanks to All. I’ve received and read just about every post in the last 2 years and am in awe! I’ve met and got to know wonderful fellow owners too. Lastly and by no means finally, Bill Rouse has simply been - and continues to be - incredible (thank you, Bill). But everyone knows that already :)

Best wishes,

Tony

Tony;

 

The Amel 54 is truly a gem that we continue to appreciate more and more every day, even after almost 6 years. Whoever ends up with Balthazar will be very fortunate.

 

Wishing you and your family the best in your next ventures.

 

Happy Sailing;

Thanks Mohammad and Aty

You are right. Two weeks ago in a marina in a Sicily, folk on a neighbouring yacht asked “is Balthazar brand new?”. Surely that makes the Amel 54 a true timeless classic?! 

There have been many such compliments, which I know all Amel-owners enjoy & take rightful pride in. 

Fair winds as you continue your Amel-Adventures! 

Tony

Well, Peter, you were almost correct....it didn’t quite take one day but just a few days to agree the sale of Balthazar! 

There was a lot of interest from wonderful folk around the world and I was about to start arranging viewings in Toulon.

Then one couple took the plunge and committed to buying Balthazar unseen, subject to survey of course and wired a deposit. They won’t be disappointed and it’s an absolute pleasure working with them to agree a handover. 

Bill Rouse might blush, but there is naturally a ‘circle of trust’ in that the new owners and I are both clients of his. Thank you Bill for ‘oiling the wheels’ - well, Corrosion X’ing them in your case :)

David Crisp (A54 Wilna Grace) deserves a special note of thanks too, for introducing me to Antoine Hutter of Nautiplus Yacht Services, here in Toulon (+33 6 12 66 58 20) - he is hugely experienced in Amel and has been superb at welcoming us to France and rapidly making survey lift out and winter arrangements - he even tracked us on AIS on passage from Corsica, phoned me as we entered the harbour and took our lines for us! Wow. (Side note - I haven’t had an invoice yet....!). 

All interested buyers of Balthazar have been advised by me personally of the sale - I was sorry to disappoint them on this occasion and wish them all well in their search for a fabulous 54. Whilst COVID has created challenges in all walks of life, it’s evident that sailors everywhere - and none more so than the “famille Amel” -  have a resilient and especially ingenious and pragmatic DNA! 

Enough effusive ‘gushing’ from me. Thanks to All on the forum and Facebook for the good wishes and I look forward to introducing Balthazar’s new owners when the sale closes.

Then one couple took the plunge and committed to buying Balthazar unseen, subject to survey of course and wired a deposit. They won’t be disappointed and it’s an absolute pleasure working with them to agree a handover. 

Bill Rouse might blush, but there is naturally a ‘circle of trust’ in that the new owners and I are both clients of his. Thank you Bill for ‘oiling the wheels’ - well, Corrosion X’ing them in your case :)

David Crisp (A54 Wilna Grace) deserves a special note of thanks too, for introducing me to Antoine Hutter of Nautiplus Yacht Services, here in Toulon (+33 6 12 66 58 20) - he is hugely experienced in Amel and has been superb at welcoming us to France and rapidly making survey lift out and winter arrangements - he even tracked us on AIS on passage from Corsica, phoned me as we entered the harbour and took our lines for us! Wow. (Side note - I haven’t had an invoice yet....!). 

All interested buyers of Balthazar have been advised by me personally of the sale - I was sorry to disappoint them on this occasion and wish them all well in their search for a fabulous 54. Whilst COVID has created challenges in all walks of life, it’s evident that sailors everywhere - and none more so than the “famille Amel” -  have a resilient and especially ingenious and pragmatic DNA! 

Enough effusive ‘gushing’ from me. Thanks to All on the forum and Facebook for the good wishes and I look forward to introducing Balthazar’s new owners when the sale closes.

Tony,

So sorry you are leaving us - that is a superb deal at €400k.

That will sell in a day if anyone has any sense.

We have only owned Balthazar since October 2018 and hugely appreciate her extraordinary qualities. However our plans have changed and we’re now offering her for sale in impeccable condition, at an attractive price, initially to the Amel community. Significantly discounted price for private sale €400k (vat paid in France from new, UK flagged now). This will likely be increased to circa €440k if offered via broker.

Balthazar was originally specified with the Comfort Plus Pack in addition to the Opacmare hydraulic passerelle & Dessalator 24/240v 100 litre per hour water maker.

Lightly used in the Med, renowned Amel surveyor, Olivier Beaute, concludes his survey of October 2018, stating “a good boat”. Since then we have invested in comfort, safety & preventative maintenance improvements, listed in the attached document and including a full Nav technology B&G upgrade & additional autopilot in July 2020.

 

There’s a spec sheet attached in the subgroup post at https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/yachtforsale  and please contact me by email tony.wells@... for more information including photos which I will send to you via Whatsapp

Thank you Bryce - I imagined the link was that he was similarly verbose! :)  Best wishes, Tony

Thought is was a long shot, but he was a keen sailor as well. All the best with the new plans.

Well, Peter, you were almost correct....it didn’t quite take one day but just a few days to agree the sale of Balthazar! 

There was a lot of interest from wonderful folk around the world and I was about to start arranging viewings in Toulon.

Well done Tony - very satisfactory. The AMEL 54 is the finest yacht around at the moment and it is no surprise that they sell.

Good luck and thanks for the introduction to Antoinne Hutter - I will remember that contact.

Congratulations Tony. That is a great deal for the new owners. We were also tempted to buy our second 54. You can never have enough spares. Lol.
