Building and history

Super Maramu 2000 model Bermudian Ketch with central cockpit built in 2002 by the Amel shipyard in La Rochelle - France.
Extremely strong solid laminate fibreglass hull, keel and skeg. Moulded in one piece.
EC conformity category A. Approved by French Merchant Navy 1st category.
Built to the high standards for which Chantiers Amel are renowned, employing specially-designed and patented glass fibre cloth material with stringer and frame hull reinforcing and an especially clean finish to the interior hull, incorporating two watertight doors and bulkheads for security. Externally, the hull topsides are finished with a white gelcoat with moulded boot top line and Amel system anti-osmosis protection below the waterline. The side decks and superstructure incorporate an end grain balsa core construction providing rigidity and good insulation. Decks have an effective teak grain pattern and colour gelcoat finish for anti-slip and superstructure and cabin top moulding have an off-white gelcoat finish with the cabin top again having a good anti-slip moulded surface. Side decks are wide and clear with plenty of flat working space. The centre cock is deep with helmsman seat.
Stainless steel tubular all-round guard rails are a feature of deck safety in addition to grab rails where required. Excellent large size cleats for mooring with alloy fairleads are fitted and the immensely strong chainplates for the main shroud attachments incorporate large eyes from which yacht can be lifted. An all round rubbing strake is a permanent protection feature when mooring together with the special transom fender.
Other features include the Amel twin pole system for ease of downwind sailing, a substantial stemhead fitting with three rollers and anchor wash and the Amel design Genoa car adjustment system. Further Amel features include the easy-to-use boarding ladder which converts to a passerelle.
The mahogany faced joinery is to an exceptionally high standard throughout with joinery fitments finished prior to installation and given at least five coats of spray two pack varnish coating. There is immense stowage  space throughout with individual lockers, stowage spaces above and below beds and in floor areas. There are matching gold curtains and cushions throughout.
The owners purchased her in 2004, being the second owner. The first owner was from Japan and spent just 2 summer holidays on her.
The present owners are from the UK, both Yachtmaster qualified, they took delivery in south of France and cruised Mediterranean for summer holidays returning to the UK in between. In 2008 they joined Blue Water Round the World Rally returning through Suez 2010. They continued summer holidays on board in the Mediterranean until 2014 when they sailed across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. They then cruised the Caribbean each year October through to May each year returning to the UK. 2023 they joined the World ARC Pacific leaving St Lucia arriving in Tahiti May 2023. At 73 they have decided that she needs younger owners.
