Hi Paul,

If you referring to steaming / deck light then brand is Aqua Signal. Not sure about exact model but something like this https://www.aquasignal.com.au/shop/masthead-topp/series-41-mast-mount/

If you referring to tricolor on top of the mast then brand is Lopolight.

Hi Mohammad,

Being in La Rochelle I can say from first hand source, Amel does not have the original spreaderlights anymore as they are no longer made. They do have very nice replacements but at a not so nice price.  

The tri-color is for most 54s the Lopolight Tri-color-anchor light. Quite a dissapointing thing as it promises 50000 hours life and if you are lucky you’ll get 1500 hour. I replaced the lot with Aqua signal series 40 LED lights

Hi Arno,

I ordered and received 3 of the spreader lights from amel in 2019. They cost 60 euros each and were a perfect match in color and intensity. Maybe they no longer carry them.

In regards to the tricolor lopolight, ours went out last year. Obviously nowhere near 50000 hours. The mooring and tricolor wiring had shorted internally. I called them and they immediately acknowledged the issue as an internal problem. They offered a 50% discount on a new one which I accepted. I’ve installed the new one, which seems to be of a far better quality and technology and am happy so far. They seem to be a quality company with excellent customer service.

Hi,
Let it be known far and wide that the new Amel people dot not give a f¨¨¨ about old Amel (Maramu and such). They throw away all the remaining spare parts to the great dismay of old Amel hands  and of course owners of older Amel boats. Their only concern is selling million dollars boats  to new clients. I am not saying that their new boats are badly made. They are for sure of vey high quality.
But if you you do not have a couple of millions in your pocket they wont even speak to you. You have  to see the old Amel Hands who have set up their own company. I recommend Secteur Blanc in la Rochelle, not cheap but super reliable.The owner has worked with Henry Amel for more than twenty years and knows absolutely everything that has to be known about Maramus, Euros, Meltems, Santorins, SuperMaramus, Sharkis and the like.
So it goes

Hello Charles,

That has not been my experience. I email Maud Touillet at sav@... and she always responds within a day or so. More often than not Amel has the spare parts in stock.

About Lopolight

My mooring and tricolor light died after 10 years service;  the same with after light.
I  write to lopolight and they tell me the product is out of warranty but  they offered a 50% discount on a new ones which I accepted.
I appreciate the commercial attitude

Charles Macdonald, 

Your rude message shows indifference to 3 out of 4 of the following requests. Although the damage is done and it has been sent to every member of the group, I will delete the message and lock the thread. All of your future postings will be moderated for a while. Many of us have worked hard to make this group stay on point helping one another without a diversion. Please try to control yourself in the future and remember anything you post anywhere on the Internet may come back to haunt you in the future. I suspect that Amel SAV now has your derogatory remarks sent to them by one of our 1200 members. You need to realize that will probably affect you and could have some impact on every one of us. There are good reasons for the following requests. I will not get into all of the reasons.

We encourage postings that will genuinely help Amel owners source needed parts and services. We encourage you to support the Amel brand and be respectful to the brand in your postings. 
  1. Please do not post anything that could be considered offensive or derogatory regarding Amel, any Member, or Sponsor.
  2. Please refrain from political issues and rude, or inappropriate language.
  3. Please refrain from criticism of persons or businesses in which you may have experienced unsatisfactory results, because it would be one-sided, without the ability of the other side to respond.
  4. Please register with your given names and please sign postings with your given name. If you currently own an Amel include the boat name, Amel model, and hull number.

Charles you are so out of line it defies belief. First you have grossly violented the rules of this group which are there for good reason, Second you are utterly wrong about Amel and their long term care of their clients. I speak from first hand knowledge owning a 22 year old Amel and having been a member of this forum for 14 years I have watched the care others have experienced. They have always been pleasant to deal with, I never cease to be amazed at the care they give to the ageing sector of their fleet. That care is precious and we must not jeopardize it.
