Been on a few in the last month or two. Bomb proof, but the interior always seems dated. Not a big deal though, owners always seem safety and equipment focused. I'd rather have well kept equipment than fancy new cushions.

jdesalvo We own a Super Maramu 1998 #207 and will be hauling out this summer. Does anyone have any suggestions on parts and/or proceedures for this process. We have owner our Amel for 2 years and this is the first haulout we have done ourselves. Thanks

Dear Sailmc,
the 220 volt is no problem.
you can use a regular 50 amp 220 volt plug and hook right into US electric.
the air conditioners (3) and battery chargers (2) will run on 50 or 60 cycles.
the microwave, dishwasher, watermaker, and
washing machine have to be run on 50 cycles.
When you are plugged into shore power you don''t have to Make water, or do clothes.
the only problem would be the dishwasher or the microwave. I have never used the dishwasher. If i need the microwave i just start the genset for a couple of minutes. the genset start switch is right next to the Microwave.

With respect to the 24 volt systems.
if you look into bigger boats you will find many including Swan use 24 volts as the standard.wire sizes are half the size for 24 volts. consider what wire size you would have to run if you were using 12 volts and 1000 amps for the Bow Thruster!
All things i need are easily obtainable in 24 volts such as hella fans and jabsco pumps.
we also have a 12 volt supply ( provided as stock with the boat). we also have an inverter with one outlet which i use for my soldering iron and to charge phones and computers.

I used to visit your old T37 website periodically. Do you have a new website for your Amel?

How have you handled the voltage differences on Kimberlite when you were in the States. As I understand the Amel is wired for 220 volt at 50 cycles. What have you done to be able to uses your AC systems while at the dock? I also understand that the DC system is 24 volt. Has this been a problem when you wanted to add something to the boat. Were you able to find 24 volt items in the states?

i have seen both the santorin and the mango. they are awesome boats .
some of the newer mangos have electric furling which is a great feature.
the beauty of the amel is that they are constantly evolving and each one is better than the last one built.
good luck in your shopping-- did you check in with joel potter to see if he has any used older Amels for sale?
