53' Amel Super Maramu 2001

Rock Hall, MD


Yashar, has had some mishaps during her travels. Read about them in the listing.

Hull has been surveyed by two independent surveyors and has excellently been repaired. 

"YASHAR" is an AMEL 53 Super Maramu Millennium and comes from a family of renown world cruisers.

  For 48 years the legendary Amel Shipyard founded by Henri Amel in LaRochelle France has been sending yachts to sea.

There are not many places anywhere on the oceans of the world that an Amel has not ventured. If you are looking for a yacht that is easily sailed by a couple, that is at home on a quiet bay or rounding Cape Horn-it's very hard to find a yacht more qualified.

Additional Information

YASHAR has sustained some damage during her voyages. In 2004, in Grenada, she was blown off her supports by a hurricane. Both masts and rigging were replaced at that time. She also sustained some hull damage that was excellently repaired.

In 2008 she ran aground in British Columbia and damaged her keel. She was taken to Seaview Boat Yard and they ordered a new keel from Amel and replaced it at their yard.

Neither of these mishaps has resulted in any seawater intrusion.  

Current owner purchased YASHAR in 2014 and spent several months upgrading the electrical and cosmetic condition of the boat. He also replaced the Jib and mizzen sails at this time. He then sailed her to Bermuda and stayed there for 10 months, and returned home to Maryland. A new dodger canvas was purchased in 2016.

The yacht was surveyed in 2014 and a loan was given to the owner for the purchase of the yacht.

The French have built high quality yachts for more than thirty years. YASHAR is a nice blue water cruising vessel.The deck accommodates a large group of guests for entertaining and enjoying an afternoon cruise. Below decks the interior is finished in a beautiful African mahogany.  The Onan generator was installed July 2012 and only has 250 hours.  

The watermaker, bow thruster, Climma heat and air conditioning, clothes washer and clothes dryer make this cruiser complete.  B&G, Furuno, complete the safety items.

 The 12-volt D.C. ships engine start system draws from one group- 110 amp hour lead acid battery to provide starting current to the main engine. This is the same battery used to start the generator. The 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 a quick charge.

A helpful note is in order here. Most North American's tend to worry about 220-volt A.C. systems, as we are used to 110 volt A.D. systems.Briefly , 95% of all docks in the United States have 220-volt A.C. Power. Call your dock master and check before docking. Most powerboats use 220 volt, often times employing a splitter. If only 110-volt A.C. is available dockside, there is an available doubler cord that plugs in and converts two 110-volt dockside outlets into one 220-volt outlet. These cost less than $400.00 new

90% of the world , other than North American Continent, is 220 volt. As Amel's are voyaging boats, they are set up to receive the most commonly available shore power.
