Renowned as one of the most perfect cruising yacht ever created, the Amel Maramu and her big sister the Supermaramu have all the features that one could possibly wish for to explore the most remote corners of the world in safety and comfort.

Safety and the ability to be operated by one person is one of Amel's top priorities. To make things even easier, "Chara" is ketch rigged with electric furling on the main, mizzen and jib. The boat is fitted with a hard dodger offering a well-protected comfortable cockpit for offshore cruising.

With a short draft for a boat of this size at only 6'5", she is ideal for tidal areas or for sailing amongst reefs, while her keel is still substantial enough to give her very good tracking ability and pointing remarkably high when sailing upwind.

The Amel is one of the only yachts that doesn't misbehave when going straight down-wind, and to add further power when following the trade winds to your next destination, Amel yachts have developed the unique double pole-out system which is easily snapped onto the two forward sails to benefit from a well-balanced, 'goose-wing' sail configuration that acts like a powerful team of horses.

The centre cockpit provides a well-protected area with a large amount of space to relax, dine and to keep the skipper company underway. It is fitted with removable clears and sunshades to cater for all sort of weather. 'Chara's current owners began their cruising in the high latitudes and needed a warm, safe cockpit that could also adapt to warm climates.

The well-positioned steering area offers good visibility and with its specifically designed seat will prevent the skipper from sliding around or having to find somewhere to brace himself in heavy weather.

All the lines and sheets are run to the cockpit for convenience and safety, using the Amel developed, unique features that make these yachts so popular to single-handed or short-handed sailors.

Inside, the Amel's magnificent skills and attention to detail are visible everywhere. The timberwork and joinery is exquisite. The wide-open salon centres around a versatile table with wings on either side that can be lifted to accommodate more guests, each side seating 4-5 people comfortably. Storage is exceptional throughout and will easily rival a 60' cruising yacht. The 2-cabins / 2-bathroom layout is perfect to give the owners plenty of privacy and for their guests to also have a little 'apartment' of their own forward, with a door separating their cabin, wardrobe and head area from the rest of the boat.

A very large quarter berth in the salon has a swing-out backrest that is hinged in a way to become a comfortable lee-sheet, making this berth an ideal spot to rest between watches at sea.

The galley is very large and designed in a way to be safe to use in all conditions. As with the rest of the boat, storage is abundant and well-thought of, so to have room for everything you need on a long voyage without cluttering the boat.

The aft cabin is exceptionally large for a boat of this size, with a proper queen size berth, huge amount of storage, very good headroom and it's own access to the ensuite head / shower area.

'Chara' is faultlessly presented and a credit of her owners of many years. She presents in absolutely beautiful condition and is equipped to suit blue-water cruising in comfort and safety. She is immensely strong, powerful, manoeuvrable, and to make you feel even safer, fitted with two water-tight bulkhead in the event of a collision.

She is regrettably offered for sale and presented in beautiful condition, ready to continue sailing around the world.
