AMEL 46 MARAMU
AMEL 46' MARAMU KETCH
Amels are focused, oceangoing machines not dock queens to be tucked ashore at the slightest breeze. The 46 Maramu is truly a classic ready to circumnavigate shorthanded or singlehanded.
AMEL 46' MARAMU KETCH LAYOUT
As you walk down the modest stairway to down below, you notice that the galley on 46 Maramu opens up to the saloon. All the way forward is a V-berth that provides two sea berths with lee boards. The master head is to port with the traditional hanging closet starboard side. The forward head and V-berth close off behind a watertight bulkhead. The saloon has an L-shaped dinette arrangement to starboard and settee port side. The afore mentioned galley is starboard with the nav station to port abreast of the companionway. To get to the master stateroom, you walk through starboard side. This walkthrough steps down and up beneath the low set cockpit. The suite aft consists of a characteristic U-shaped berth, excellent storage, and headroom. An en suite head and shower are port side.

- hard dodger
- chainplates attached on the exterior of the hull for easy inspection
- watertight large engine room
- deep and big anchor chain locker
- tons of storage
- no wood to varnish outside
- easily balanced ketch rig...
