An affordable and proven world cruiser, a "mini Delos" is for sale. Built by the same company producing "Delos" this is a scaled down version of an Amel Super Maramu in a much more affordable and simpler package.
This Amel Euros 41 was built in 1979.259 Euros were produced and this is the last one. In 2002 she was purchased by the current (2nd) owner. In the following 2 years she was completely refitted and since has been cruising the world while continuously maintained and upgraded.
With a growing family and changing plans the current owner decided to upgrade to a bigger boat so the yacht has been put to the market.
She has a newish reliable Yannar 54 HP engine with low fuel consumption and good motoring range.
She is a central cockpit ketch rigged yacht. She has a comprehensive sail inventory both for light and very strong winds. It's deep and huge cockpit is very safe and comfortable and allows easy line handling.
She would be ideal yacht for a couple with or without children or a single handler. She would be also a good match for someone just started sailing with plans to explore beyond the horizon. New Zealand tax has been paid so the yacht can stay in New Zealand without restrictions.
She is currently located in Langkawi. Langkawi is the yachting center of SouthEast Asia. Berthed in the beautiful Rebak Island Marina where owners can access the Resort Island's amenities. Langkawi is tax free, spares and yacht parts can be easily and quickly shipped from overseas without any paperworks and local businesses are available for maintenance, repairs and upgrades.
This is one of the world's best cruising area, good weather all year around, no strong winds, no hurricanes, friendly locals and cheap cost of living. Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia are all fantastic cruising destinations.
She is in good overall condition however she was on the hard stand for 3 years (the owners were away because of pregnancy then the owners were not able to return because of Covid). She was recently recommissioned but there are some minor things need fixing.
Being a ketch there are 3 sails to handle but the handling itself is very easy because the sails are smaller compared to a sloop and the important lines are all led into the cockpit.
A truly affordable proven cruising boat. Please contact us today for more information.
