1987, 46′ Amel Maramu for Sale or Trade

Posted by on January 12, 2017

Amel Maramu ketch offered for sale or trade.  1987, 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.  A nice upgrade for the original brown faux teak fiberglass deck.   The Maramu model is the pre-curser to the 46′ Santorin and the 53′ Super Maramu, and shares the same 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 two persons, or even one.  Mainsail controls are in the deep, roomy, safe center cockpit and unfurling, reefing, and furling is done with powerful electric motors, with all controls at the helm.  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.

Languedoc has many upgrades. She had an extensive re-fit in 2012. 60 hp Cummins diesel, Hurth Transmission, 5 KW Northern Lights genset, Victron Inverter/charger and Victron 240V-120V transformer, Air Breeze wind gen. AC electrical system new in 2012, standing rigging new in 2012.  2015 Rocna 73# anchor,  2015 Highfield aluminum RIB.   2015 KATO dinghy davits. 15hp 2 cycle Yamaha, (2012) and 3.5 hp 2 cycle Mercury outboard (2015).   Languedoc’s hull and ballast are expoxied and painted with Micron 66. The topsides are painted with Awlgrip, polished, and in excellent condition.

New in 2017:
Removable jackstay for hank on storm jib and staysail. New headstay and Harken Roller furling. New Genoa.  New Balmar alternator. New holding tank and toilet in forward head. Refinished cabin sole in main salon. New Victron battery monitor.  Bottom painted, Oct. 2016.  Masts and booms cleaned, sanded, primed, and repainted in July 2017.

Languedoc is now in land storage in Anacortes, Washington, undergoing repairs and upgrades after 4 years in the Caribbean. After a trailer ride from Brunswick, GA., Languedoc is one of the rare Amels on the U.S. west coast.

The asking price is $165,000, Thee boat is in very good condition.  The most recent survey (2013) revealed no major issues.

We will consider trades or partial trades for another blue water cruiser on the U.S. west coast.  No “project boats” or “fixers“.
