54' Amel, Amel 54
If you are looking for an exceptionally well cared for, one owner AMEL 54 this one should be first on your list. I was instrumental in the purchasing and outfitting of this very thoughtfully equipped example from the AMEL Shipyard. As I had also sold the owner a new SUPER MARAMU years earlier, we built upon a solid business relationship to make this AMEL 54 fit perfectly with his exacting requirements based on a life of sailing and previous AMEL ownership. Every element of the boats outfitting was deeply considered and then considered again. Every question you might raise about "Why did you choose this?" has a thoughtful and satisfying answer.
Always maintained to be ready to head offshore on a moments notice, this boat has always been cared for with reliability first and cost second. Period.
Upon completion of a leisurely circumnavigation at the AMEL Shipyard in La Rochelle last fall/2016, the owner had the AMEL team suggest improvements and upgrades. Replacements included all of the standing rigging from clevis pin to clevis pin, and most all of the running rigging. The engine room was thoroughly scrutinized and new motor mounts were installed along with other enhancements. By the way, the engine and all machinery have not been repainted or pressure washed. They are spotless because everything has been well looked after. All electronics, refrigeration and air conditioning was investigated and brought up to snuff. All the batteries were renewed in 2017. Clean as a whistle and still under the fastidious care of her first and only owner. This AMEL 54 represents incredible value and will please even the most persnickety purchaser.
Please note that the two photographs under sail are of a virtually identical sister ship.
