Papeete Tahiti French Polynesia
This is a fine example of the sought after Amel Super Maramu cruiser. This centre-cockpit ketch offers true blue water cruising capability, while being considerately laid out and comfortably sailed by two crew.
The owners of this 1995 Amel Super Maramu have maintained and upgraded her constantly, and she is presented in excellent condition. In 2012 the owners undertook a major refit, including new engine, rigging, sails, electronics just to name a few items.
Features include an 2013 Nanni 115hp engine, 3 blade Max Prop, Bow thruster, Onan generator, wind generator, solar panels, water maker, air conditioning, Liferaft, EPIRB, and much more.
This Amel Super Maramu is well equipped and ready to go cruising with her new owners, she is available for viewing in Papeete, French Polynesia.
When we decided to buy our boat to sail around the world, and after visiting several yards we de- cided that the Amel SUPER MARAMU was the perfect boat for us like a couple.
We had the opportunity to visit the yard in La Rochelle, France to see and understand how their boats are built and we were after this visit even more convinced of their responsibility to do their boats.
We found a lot of advantages on the AMEL boat like the SUPER MARAMU:
- Central cockpit that brings security and comfort
- Easy to work with the sails from the center cockpit (just one person can do the job without
going out the cockpit)
- The interior is nice, elegant and classic (The wood work with mahogany is beautiful)
- Working on the engine room is easy and comfortable
- The aft cabin for guest is comfortable and private
- The quality and safety of the AMEL construction has been proved over the years
We bought PITU in 2011 and since we are happy sailing and living in as our home.
We navigate in the Mediterranean Sea until 2014 where we cross the Atlantic. We visited the Antil- les islands the west coast of USA until de Chesapeake Bay.
We decided to continue our adventure in the Pacific and we did the transpacific Panama- Galapagos-Gambier- Marquesas and Society Islands. We are located now in Tahiti and we would like to sale PITU to go back to Switzerland.
When someone is going to buy our boat PITU, she will be ready to sail! This is important, we did already all the improvements!

The AMEL SUPER MARAMU has a construction technique that is absolutely unique in the industry. The yield is an extremely strong and solid one-piece hull and deck assembly; a true monocoque!
All Amels, since 1967, have been built with Amel designed biaxial fiberglass cloth. This is a flat woven fiberglass cloth that is much stronger in sheer and tension hat conventional mat and woven roving laminates. It is lighter, stronger and better. The hull is molded in one piece incorporating one piece/non-spliced lengths of biaxial cloth running form bulwark, down through the keel/centerline, and up to the opposite bulwark. In the same fashion, the next series of laminates run from the bow lengthwise to the stern, again, employing one piece/non spliced lengths of biaxial cloth. The deck assembly is built in a similar fashion. While the hull is a solid fiberglass lami- nate with no core, the deck assembly employs a core of Baltek vertical end grain balsa in strategic horizontal areas to enhance stiff- ness and is insulation from heat and noise. There are also substrates of iron Wood in the deck assembly where cleats and the windlass are installed to easily accommodate the increased and shearing loads in the foredeck.
While the completed one-piece hull is still in the mold, ALL the furniture and structural bulkheads, less non-structural drawers and cabi- net faces, are installed. After all the structural assemblies are completely installed, the separately completed deck assembly is joined to the hull (again, while it is still in the mold) with six layers of the same biaxial cloth used in the primary laminations, around the entire hull to deck interface. What this accomplishes, effectively, is the elimination of a conventional hull to deck joint. The hull and deck are married with a homogeneous fiberglass matrix. Which insures a strong and leak free hull and deck join for the entire life of the vessel.
The interior accommodation is finished in burl cut plantation grown African Mohogany with a semi-gloss polyure- thane varnish. The overheads are cream colored vinyl. The sole in the saloon and galley are made in mahogany and have wonderfully large deep dry storage lockers beneath, and with beige carpet in the state- rooms and hallways.
Beginning in the forepeak and working aft there is a large chain locker that is isolated from the accommodation by a genuine full height water- tight collision bulkhead with a watertight door allowing access in to the chain locker.
The guest stateroom is just aft and has a very large V-berth with 2 single berths. A filler panel and cushion are provided that can convert this V- berth into a large double berth to port with a single berth to starboard.
There is a writing desk hung on the bulkhead that easily folds down or up as require.
Just aft to starboard is a very generously sized hanging locker with the guest head opposite to port. The guest head has a vanity with extra deep wash basin, Jabsco marine toilet with holding tank and an integral shower with a well-designed spray curtain that effectively provides a stall shower. The head includes 6 large deep storage cubicles. A laundry drying rack folds up flat against the wall.
Just aft the head area is the saloon. The saloon is separated from the forward accommodation by a genuine full height watertight collision bulkhead with a submarine type watertight door. The saloon contains a very spacious U-shaped dinette with table port with a couch/love seat opposite to starboard. Outboard of the couch is a pull out pilot-sea berth. Outboard of the sea berth are very deep storage lockers. A virtually identical locker arrangement is opposite all the way outboard to port less the television compartment (We have installed a TNT antenna television that works in all European countries including French Polyne- sia). The storage space in the saloon is extremely impressive.
The full-sized navigation station is aft of the saloon to starboard with the U-shaped galley directly opposite to port. The navigation station faces outboard with a large chart table and a pylon seat. There is storage inside the chart table for navigation supplies as well as two draw- ers and two lockers beneath. Just next to the navigation station is a large hanging locker, suitable for jackets and foul weather gear.
The passageway to aft cabin contains a single berth with the battery containment compartment just beneath. This is a superb sea berth that will guarantee a restful sleep in even the worst of conditions as it is located quite low inside the vessel and very close to the forward-aft pitch axis.
The owner s stateroom is all the way aft and has a genuine full height watertight collision bulkhead at its entry with a submarine style watertight door. The owner s stateroom has an extra deep wash basin, an electric Jabsco Marine toilet with holding tank, and an integral shower with a well-designed spray curtain that effectively replicates a stall shower. The owner s stateroom includes a small settee and queen berth, as well as a nice sized vanity table with swing-out seat. A locker door above the vanity table is equipped with a mirror mounted on the interior side of the door.
Mounted on the exterior side of the head door is a full-length mirror.
The SUPER MARAMU has a C.E. A/Unlimited Offshore rating as well as a French Merchant Marine Class A rating.
