Languedoc –  2019 Condition and Valuation Survey.

1987 Amel Maramu ketch offered for sale or trade for smaller blue water cruiser.  For more information, contact

46′ length on deck and about 48′ LOA.  The deck walkways were repainted white by the previous owner.  The Maramu model is the pre-curser to the 46′ Santorin and the 53′ Super Maramu, and shares a similiar interior layout, but smaller.  Between the Maramu and the Super Maramu, Amel built the 46′ Santorin.  We prefer the Maramu because it has a more functional dinette table and a conventional transmission and shaft drive, rather than the complex and high maintenance “C” drive offered on subsequent Amel models.

The boat is easy to sail by one or two persons.  Mainsail controls are in the deep, roomy, safe center cockpit.  Furling and reefing is done by a powerful electric motor, with all controls at the helm.  The in mast mainsail is unfurled manually using an out-haul led to a winch in the cockpit.  The mainsheet and the traveler lines are also run to the cockpit.  The cockpit is covered by a large hard dodger, with an expansive windshield.  The helm is dry, comfortable, and extremely safe, even in the worst weather conditions.

Amel sailboats are built to sail comfortably anywhere, anytime.  Languedoc is fully equipped for blue water cruising.  Tankage and storage are excellent.  The water tank holds 275 gallons.  The diesel tank holds 125 gallons.
