HISTORY OF SUPER MARAMU MILLENNIUM # 350
This is a 2002 model built in October of 2001.
I have known this boat since the day it’s construction began. I watched it being built and marshalled the process. It is the second SUPER MARAMU I had built for the original owner and the options were chosen with a great deal of prior experience and very careful consideration. After a carefree crossing of the Atlantic, I personally de-rigged the boat here in Florida and had it placed on a trailer and shipped to the Great Lake state of Michigan. It was used about six weeks each summer season and carefully put away in covered dry storage each fall. Three years later, I sold it to the second owners who cruised the Great Lakes for a season before heading out to the Atlantic Ocean and down to the Caribbean. They eventually became enamored with Guatemala and the Rio Dolce and enjoyed using the boat there for most of their ownership. The third and present owners are a young professional couple who decided to take a break and go cruising. From 2013 - 2015 they casually cruised the boat in and then from Florida up the east coast to Nova Scotia, Canada. In 2015 they did a trans Atlantic passage from Florida to Ireland and then along the European Atlantic from Brest, France to Gibraltar. 2016-2018 the Mediterannean from Gibralter to Israel and back. 2019-2020 to the Azores and Northern Europe to include Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherllands and England. 2021 took them to the Canaries, trans Atlantic to the Bahamas and a return to Fort Lauderdale. They have prepared the boat for sale and moved off. When you inspect the boat, what you see is what you get.
I maintained a friendship as well as a strong professional relationship with all three owners and have consistently and continually been involved in this boats ongoing care. It has enjoyed exceptionally good maintenance and is one of the most well preserved and non-molested SUPER MARAMUS I have ever had the privilege to offer.
U.S. CUSTOMS DUTY PAID
Please reference the layout diagram in the photo gallery.
In the forward stateroom, the two single berths can quickly be reconfigured into a port side double and a starboard side single with the provided filler panel and cushion. The bulkhead in the extreme forward area of the forward stateroom is a watertight collision bulkhead with a water tight door access into the chain locker.
Just aft to port is the forward head with Jabsco Silent Flush electric marine toilet and black water holding tank, vanity and wash basin, and a shower with clever curtain arrangement that keeps everything in the head dry when using the shower.
Opposite to starboard is a very large hanging locker.
The saloon is aft and separated from the forward area by a fully watertight door on a watertight bulkhead. The saloon has a U-shaped dinette area. Opposite to starboard is a sofa. There is an extension for the dining table that allows the sofa to be used while dinning.
The U-shaped galley is aft to port and features the three-burner propane stove and oven, microwave oven, top loading dishwasher and a 24-volt powered extractor cowl directly over the stove. The top loading clothes washer is also in the galley under a lift-up panel. There is a Seagull/Nature Pure water filtration system with a dedicated tap.
The navigation station is opposite to port with an outboard facing navigation desk with seat and storage for charts and navigational equipment. There is an open hanging locker adjacent to the navigation station.
The sea berth is in the passageway to the owner’s cabin aft. This berth is located quite low and is positioned close to the vessels pitch axis. It is very secure even in the most trying conditions. This berth, like all the berths on the boat, has a sturdy lee board.
The owners cabin aft has an ensuite head with Jabsco Silent Flush electric marine toilet with blackwater holding tank, vanity with wash basin, and the same clever shower curtain configuration as in the forward head that keeps things in this area dry. The double berth is offset to the port side and is nearly 6'6"long. Opposite to starboard is a settee and a vanity with seat. There is a good-sized hanging locker in this cabin. The entrance to the aft cabin has a watertight door on a watertight bulkhead. The bulkhead fully aft in this cabin is also a watertight bulkhead.
It should be noted that there is more useable storage in the SUPER MARAMU than in any other vessel of comparable interior volume. Seriously, you will be amazed the first time you go aboard any SUPER MARAMU. A good part of the reason for this is that there are five very large lockers outside on deck and two smaller ones that hold all the bulky and often potentially smelly stuff like awnings, outboard motors and maintenance chemicals outside of the interior accommodations. Seriously when you first go aboard a SUPER MARAMU you will be mightily impressed with the unsurpassed volumes of on deck storage. The interior of the boat is kept uncluttered. Nothing goes down the companionway into the interior unless you eat it, read it, or wear it.
The U-shaped galley is located in the portside after quarter of the saloon. This galley is, truly, an ergonomic “tour de force” that will be very much appreciated by a seagoing gourmet both when offshore or in harbor. There is plenty of counter space for meal preparation and an abundance of storage both in and about the galley so that the sailing chef can have all the conveniences found in a shore side kitchen without the usual clutter present in most fully equipped sailboat galleys. The clothes washer is also located in the galley area.

Probably best described as a ¾ aft cockpit, the cockpit area in the AMEL SUPER MARAMU is situated deep within the vessel for enhanced security and to minimize undesirable motion. The steering station is in the forward port side quarter of the cockpit where it can be completely protected from sun, spray, rain and other undesirable environmental conditions. The cockpit is exceptionally comfortable as the seat backs and the seats themselves are ergonomically designed to conform to the human anatomy with subtle curves in just the right places. As we tend to live in the cockpit, Amel went to great lengths to make this area the most comfortable room in the house. The hard dodger protects the cockpit from the sea and spray while the extendable/pull out Bimini keeps the sun and rain away. If you have not had the pleasure of experiencing the uncommon comfort of the SUPER MARAMU cockpit, be sure to spend a few minutes investigating this for yourself when you get aboard.
The forward deckhouse is a wedge configuration. Both the forward and aft deckhouses are bordered by side decks that are unencumbered by rigging or equipment. It is quite easy and safe to make your way about the decks on board the SUPER MARAMU.
Each and every element of the deck design was drawn, reconsidered, and then ultimately configured to provide the optimum in functionality, comfort, and security. Amel's 30 plus years of experience with offshore sailing boat design really shows everywhere aboard the SUPER MARAMU.
The hull is an evolution of Henri Amel’s cruising keel and skeg hung rudder philosophy that he helped popularize for cruising boats in the early 1950’s. The raked bow with semi-rounded forefoot provides a fast yet sea-kindly face to the waves. The wide low aspect ratio keel gives up maybe a couple of degrees in pointing ability in providing an exceptionally strong and secure mount for the external ballast. All 1000 liters/264 gallons of fresh water are carried in the stub keel, not only providing a double bottom but keeping the weight of the water quite low in the boat (and not in tanks under settees where they would rob storage). The keel has long wings, which not only aid stiffness and weatherlyness, but also act as pitch stabilizers when going 5 knots or better. The keel has a flat bottom and is wide enough to allow the boat to stand, unsupported, on the keel. However, we strongly urge you to use support stands when on the hard.
The propeller is mounted on the trailing edge of the keel where it is well immersed and very well protected from sea junk. It is also not under the bed in the owner’s cabin, as in most center cockpit designs, allowing you to sleep when powering. Propeller noise is effectively marginalized.
The rudder is hung from a massive full-length skeg assembly that can support the entire laden weight of the vessel in case of a grounding.
The hull’s run aft is wide enough to support powerful reaching performance yet shaped with a gradual buoyancy increase so when immersed in waves to impart a steady ride in a sea way. In conjunction with the same gradual buoyancy increase in the bow, there is a very predictable and linear motion at sea.
As in all elements of the entire vessel’s design, the hull and deck were conceived to do their jobs properly and efficiently, not to have a certain look or to make a fashion statement. In cruising yacht design, as in nature, the most satisfactory results are achieved when form follows function.
CONSTRUCTION: 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 than 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 from 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 laminate with no core, the deck assembly employs a core of Baltek vertical end grain balsa in strategic horizontal areas to enhance stiffness 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 compression 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 cabinet 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.
Mast headed ketch rig with AMEL designed and constructed furling on the jib, main, and mizzen. The main and jib furlers can be operated electrically or manually. The mizzen is manual operation only. Additionally, the main sheet traveler and the jib sheet cars can be positioned from the cockpit area. Like all SUPER MARAMU MILLENNIUMS, this boat has the exclusive AMEL double headsail ballooner system. For those who have not experienced this, you are in for a treat. It allows one person to control 1431 square feet of off the wind headsail power from the cockpit absolutely without effort. Full mainsail and mizzen sail, port and starboard preventer system, controlled from inside the cockpit, 2015.
The standing rigging is 1x 19 stainless steel wire with Sta-Lok end fittings and open barrel chromed bronze turnbuckles. The aluminum alloy spars and booms are zinc chromatid, primed and then painted in cream colored polyurethane. Both masts are deck stepped to massive compression assemblies that carry the compression loads into the hull. All new standing and running rigging, 2013. New mainsail halyard and genoa halyard 2020.
Winches are all by Lewmar and all are self-tailing. The #58 primary cockpit winches and the #40 main sheet winch are 24 volt powered yet can also be operated manually.

12-Volt D.C. Ships Generator Start System
12-Volt D.C. Ships Engine Start System.
24-Volt D.C. Ships House Supply System
220-Volt A.C. Ships Generator System
220-Volt A.C. Ships Shore Power System
220 Volt A C. Ships Inverter Power System, New in 2014, AMEL factory spec.
The 12-volt D.C. ships generator start systems draws from one group 31/12 volt - 110 amp hour lead-acid battery to provide starting current exclusively to the generator. This generator start system battery is charged by an 18 amp 12 volt alternator that is powered by the generator.
The 12-Volt D.C. ships engine start system draws from one group 31/12 volt - 110 amp hour AGM battery to provide starting current to the main engine. This battery is charged by a 50 amp 12-volt engine driven alternator. This battery is totally isolated and cannot be co-mingled with the house supply batteries. It can, however, be jumped from the house supply batteries with the provided jumper cables if it ever needs to be. This is the same battery that starts the generator.
The 24-volt D.C. ships house supply battery banks consists of Twelve group 31/12 volt - 110 amp hour lead acid marine batteries, in series connection by pairs, providing 660 ampere hours of capacity at 24-volts. All the boats batteries were renewed in 2015 with AGM batteries, brand: Trojan These batteries are charged by the following; a 175 amp Leece-Neville 24 volt engine driven alternator, as well as the following 220-volt chargers; 100 amp Mastervolt automatic charger and a 30 amp Mastervolt 24/30-3 automatic charger.
The ship’s batteries are secured within and locked down inside of a fiberglass containment system that is both waterproof and vapor proof. All batteries were renewed in 2015.
The house batteries are monitored by redundant monitoring units, which shows voltage, amps out, and amps into the house batteries. These are very accurate and consist of a Xantrex and a Mastervolt EasyView 5 displays.
The ship’s 24-volt D.C. house supply system is controlled by an all circuit breaker master panel.
The 220-volt A.C. 7 KW ship’s diesel generator is an ONAN MDKAL unit with a fresh water-cooled three-cylinder diesel power plant. The generator has less than 4600 hours of total use. It is mounted in the engine room on hydro-feet and is nearly noiseless in operation. It is not contained in a sound shield/cocoon thereby making it easy to access for inspection and maintenance.
The 220-volt A.C. ship’s diesel generator and the 220-volt A.C. ships shore power system are controlled by an all circuit breaker master control panel. There are 220-volt outlets located conveniently throughout the accommodation. There is a ground fault interrupter in the primary 220 supply line.
A helpful note is in order here. Most North Americans tend to worry about 220-volt A.C. systems as we are used to 110-volt A.C. systems. Please allow me the opportunity to discuss your concerns with you as I am absolutely positively 100% certain I can allay them. Briefly, 95% of all docks in the U.S.A. have 220-volt A.C. power. Call your Dock Master and ask him. Most powerboats use 220-volt, often times employing a “splitter”.
If only 110-volt A.C. is available dockside, there is a provided doubler cord that converts two 110-volt dockside outlets into one 220-volt outlet.
Another fact is that 90% of the world, other than the North American Continent, is 220-volt. As Amel’s are voyaging boats, they are set up to receive the most commonly available shore power. As I have been answering the same questions in reference to the same concerns for more than thirty years, you can be sure that I have helpful, honest, and accurate information to pass along to you which will alleviate any concern regarding shore power. All of the hand pluggable devices on board can be safely used with U.S. shore power via the inverter provided the isolation switch is correctly switched.

Natural ventilation of the interior spaces of the SUPER MARAMU is commendable. When on anchor and facing into the breeze, open the three overhead hatches (forward stateroom, forward head area, and saloon) and close the cockpit companionway hatch. Open the hatch at the extreme aft end of the owner’s cabin, and then enjoy the exceptional natural flow through ventilation.
There are two 8000 BTU Climma air conditioners installed, one in the forward stateroom, and one in the saloon. They are both the same model and can eventually be serviced from common spares. There is a 12,000 BTU Airr unit in the aft cabin with electronic controls and reverse cycle air heating, New in 2014
This SUPER MARAMU also has the 24 volt powered fresh air ventilation system that provides dry fresh air to all three cabins as required. This is particularly useful in conditions that warrant closing all other exterior sources of ventilation. Additional ventilation is provided by 9-24 volt Hella 2-speed fans with ten dedicated mounting points/power supply’s to mount them on.
A new Eberspacher Airtronic D5 5500 whole boat ventilation/heating system was installed in 2015 in La Rochelle, France, per original AMEL factory specs with upgraded digital EasyStart digital controller with LCD screen for control & Monitoring from the salon. There is in addition an Eberspacher EasyStart+ wireless digital remote control, with LCD screen and programable timers, schedule on/schedule off, to easily regulate the heating from anywhere inside the boat.

Tachometer, voltage, coolant temp and oil pressure are repeated on chart plotter screens at nav station and cockpit as per user preference.
The engine, and most all of the vessel’s machinery, is mounted in a very spacious engine room that allows easy and unencumbered access to all the machinery for inspection, service and repair. This is a true step in/stand up engine room that contains all the noise, heat, and mess of the machinery thereby keeping it all out of the accommodations. A Reverso electric 24-Volt oil change pump and hoses are installed in the engine room to ease oil changes.
Pull-pull rack and pinion system employing sheathed stainless steel cables/rods. The cables run in greased “tubes” and have no wear points as in systems that use wire and pulleys. There is a finely engineered and fitted emergency tiller system provided that would allow one to steer from atop the aft cabin trunk. The cables were adjusted by the AMEL factory at La Rochelle in 2020.
There is one sea chest with a ballcock type valved through-hull below the waterline for all incoming raw water and three ballcock type discharge through-hulls above the waterline, and a removable transducer for the fathometer and the knot meter. The rudder shaft has a conventional stuffing box. There is a removable transducer for the B&G Forward Scan which is also a secondary depth sounder,.

Comprehensive Amel Owner’s Manual with all Operational Information and Complete Diagrams
You are probably aware of how well respected the AMEL SUPER MARAMU is amongst knowledge-able, experienced ocean voyagers. With four watertight bulkheads describing the five genuinely watertight compartments, it is challenging to think of another fiberglass sailing yacht that offers the same security as the SUPER MARAMU. With the AMEL designed and constructed all furling rig and powerful bow thruster and powered Lewmar winches, the SUPER MARAMU can be managed by one competent sailor offshore and is truly child's play for a cruising couple to manage in any circumstance.
Perhaps the main reason AMEL has been able to consistently build such a top quality product is because every member of the AMEL team, from the floor sweeper to the chairman, are all shareholder-owners of the AMEL shipyard. Since they all know their share of the profit at the end of each fiscal year is predicated mainly on how well they do their jobs, they are highly motivated to get it done right the first time they do it. Few things eat profit as fast as do-overs and warranty work.
Why did AMEL go to the time, trouble and expense of manufacturing their own internal furling spars, furling headstay and potent bow thruster? None of the commercially available options met AMELS standards for fool proof and reliable operation. The only way AMEL could build such a high quality serious cruising yacht for such a reasonable price is because all 479 SUPER MARAMUS built have virtually the same configuration. Ask anyone who has ever been involved in boat building and they will tell you that relocating bulkheads and offering “owner customized” interiors is the best way to become a non-profit organization in a hurry.
With this standardization comes familiarity. The workers repeat virtually the same processes, refining and perfecting the processes each time they are performed. I have had the opportunity to be in the company of as many as 20 SUPER MARAMUS at the same time and it is truly something to appreciate how they all are virtually identical and the perceived quality is absolutely uniform from boat to boat.
How do I know so much about AMEL stuff? I was AMEL’S exclusive representative for North America for over three decades and have sold more than 100 new AMEL boats and hundreds of brokerage examples, some of them four and five times. I remain enthusiastic and knowledgeable regarding all things AMEL. I like this boat a lot and I’ll be pleased to show her to you.
