53' AMEL SUPER MARAMU MILLENNIUM RED LINE
If there is, as they say, success in numbers, then the AMEL SUPER MARAMU is the most successful medium sized cruising sailboats of all time. This example is the 477th SUPER MARAMU delivered out of a production of some 479 SUPER MARAMU'S in total. No one else has ever built as many serious offshore cruising sailboats of this size and description. I remember going aboard this boat before it was delivered as it was undergoing qualification checks in the test pool at the shipyard. I felt a twinge of melancholy as I knew this was one of the last of the most popular medium sized voyaging sailboats ever built. The tooling for the new AMEL 54 was then already completed...
The original owner sailed her into the Mediterranean but was unfortunate, and a serious health challenge he developed demanded all his attention. He was obliged to sell the boat to the second and current owner. The first owner won his battle and is sailing once again.
The second owner loves voyaging and catching fish while passage making. He mainly enjoyed long passages on the boat and has completed three Atlantic Race/Rallies for Cruisers in this boat. While the original sails were in splendid condition, he replaced the working wardrobe in 2012 for some extra performance without sacrificing offshore durability and, he caught and ate a lot of fish! The boat has never been damaged. Nobody has smoked aboard. The boat is in sterling condition inside and out.
I recently had the pleasure to sail this boat almost 1400 miles non-stop with my wife, bringing it to Fort Lauderdale from St. Lucia. We enjoyed a trouble free passage with easy 200-mile days.
I have sold more SUPER MARAMU'S new and used combined than anyone else in the world. Not a boast, just a qualifier for the next paragraph.
This is one of the very nicest, cleanest and best kept AMEL SUPER MARAMU'S I have ever offered my brokerage clients. I believe it is the best SUPER MARAMU, all things considered, on today's market.
I am very familiar with this design in general and this example in particular and look forward to being helpful to you as you explore the possibility of owning this "Best in Class" ocean cruiser that has truly enjoyed the benefits of being well owned and pampered from day one and up until today.
