The Amel Maramu has an enviable reputation as one of the most popular blue-water cruisers in the world. Whilst she may not be as fast as her larger sister the Super Maramu, the Maramu is regarded as an extremely comfortable boat that allows you to cover the miles without really noticing. Like all Amels, Clova has her quirks, but we feel she is ideally suited to cruising on the west coast of Scotland and beyond.
One of the many features that makes the Maramu so attractive to long distance cruisers is the fact they have an integral watertight main bulkhead. This allows her to be Coded to MCA Category Zero, which means that she can be bareboat chartered for trips to Iceland, the Faroes, Norway or northern Europe and, in the future, for winter trips across the Atlantic in the ARC and similar rallies. Similar features which make the boat so suitable for long distance charters include a 1,000 litre water tank, integral (padded) lee board in the saloon and full lee-board provision in both the fore and aft cabins.
