Marandina is an Amel Maramu from 1981 fully prepared for blue water cruising. The Amel is a well-known ocean sailing boat, respected for its comfort and seaworthy construction, a boat to sail on all oceans. The cockpit is protected by a bimini and groups all the necessary equipment to manoeuvre the boat. This makes the Amel an easy boat to sail short-handed, and safe in all sea conditions.
The interior is cosy and functional: a large aft cabin for the owner leading off a corridor with technical storage area. The saloon has a drop-down table for extra bunks if needed or table seating. The galley is well organised, and there is a double cabin forward.
Marandina has been recently equipment with several important equipment items: windlass and anchor setup is new in 2019, sales are only 5 years old, generator with just 1000h, water maker, Raymarine C120 chart plotter with radar and AIS. See the inventory for a full listing.
Aesthetically there are some small items that need to be taken care of, but the strong technical setup of the boat and the strength of the Amel construction are to be valued. This is a comfortable and seaworthy boat, excellently set-up for ocean sailing and on a very reasonable budget.
