Amel Super Maramu 2000
Entering from the Navigation Station you see on the starboard side the captain berth
Cabinet and drawers opened - under the drawer you will find empty space to store more.
Aft of the captain berth, there is a small hanging closet
At the bottom which was the plank to secure the aft cabin water tight door
View facing forward of the captain berth
Added by the previous owner is a chart closet
Near the water tight door you will see a handle to shut a valve connecting the aft head to the bilge
Above it is a L shape device to lock the cockpit storage where you fill up the diesel
In the middle is another L shape device to lock the engine compartment
Forward you will find a shut off valve for the diesel tank - as well as a mechanical fuel gage
If you remove the cushions of the captain berth, you will find the battery compartment
NIKIMAT had 8 house batteries + 1 starting battery
some Super Maramu came with 12 house battery + 1 starting battery
The house batteries are connected 2 by 2 in series to provide a 24 volt system
(which allow thinner wires compare if it was on a 12 volt)
Closing the battery compartment, putting back the cushion and installing the leeboard
This is how you secure the water tight door, with the plan at the bottom.
Note: the valve on the right of the picture is "NOT" closed, and will need to be in case of emergency
At the top, you will find 2 access panels
One to access the breakers of the starboard electric winches, main sail electric winch, dinghy inflator
One to access the starboard winch
I was very impressed about the quality of these winches.
After NIKIMAT sunk, the vessel remained 3 months under water before being salvaged.
The winches were removed and were still working
