About Amel Owners Yacht School:  

Judy and I enjoyed 11 years circumnavigating the world aboard our 2003 Amel Super Maramu, BeBe. We logged over 40,000 miles and visited 58 countries. Our Circumnavigation Blog aboard BeBe, SM #387, is at www.svbebe.com AND see the 10-year average costs aboard Amel BeBe.


During our circumnavigation aboard our 2003 Amel Super Maramu, BeBe, I became self-taught on almost everything about Amel yachts and the systems installed on Amels. I obtained hundreds of OEM device 
installation and operations manuals, thoroughly reading every one of these.  When in doubt, I consulted experts at the OEM device manufacturer. Additionally, I networked with dozens of highly experienced Amel owners. I audited Amel employees performing routine maintenance. I created maintenance instructions with illustrations that are used by hundreds of Amel Owners. The culmination of this 11-year effort is my 400-page Amel Book and my Premium Yacht School Course. Since that beginning, I have developed a full assortment of products and services that will be very helpful to you Before you buy an Amel and After you own your Amel. Some of my products and services are at no cost while the others are low-cost. My services and products are divided into two categories, Before and After you buy an Amel:

Before You Buy - Pre-Purchase Products and Services

This learning and Amel orientation cruise cost a couple less than one-half what it costs to charter a cheap sailboat gives the couple a complete orientation of an Amel Yacht. I now offer an Amel 7-day Orientation Cruise aboard an Amel with an experienced owner/captain in the US, Caribbean, Mediterranean, French Polynesia, Australia, and New Zealand. More...

I will share my experience with Amel yachts or any question I can answer about yachting with you at no cost for 1 hour. If you have any questions regarding anything Amel, I offer a free 1-hour consult on any subject. Ask anything you may want to ask and get experienced answers. I prefer zoom meetings, but a phone call is OK. More...

Pre-Purchase Consulting, Amel Boat Reviews, and Advice & Recommendations to Help You 
Pre-Purchase/Sale Consulting is now available to both Buyers and Sellers of AmelYachts. I am an experienced Amel Yacht Specialist and I understand the complexities of selecting the right Amel yacht, as well as, the issues in the sale & purchase process. I am not a broker, nor am I a surveyor. I am a non-conflicted knowledgeable consultant to future Amel owners and current Amel sellers. I estimate that I am the Buyers Consultant on 3/4ths of all Amels sold, worldwide.

After You Own - Post-Purchase Products and Services

The Amel Owners Yacht School Course is my premium course perfect for those people who are new to Amels. The course is taught aboard your Amel with as many members of the crew as desired. It is an intensive and complete course. More...

FastTrack Course
If you have recently purchased your Amel,  I recommend the Premium Yacht School Training Course aboard your Amel. However, not everyone has the availability, time, and/or budget to take this course. If you choose to not take the Premium Amel Yacht School Course, the FastTrack Course is a pathway to gaining important operating and maintenance information.

I wrote this 400 page "Amel Book." I have it color-printed on 100-pound (271gsm) gloss cardstock and 100-pound (271gsm) matte paper. It is 3-hole punched and inserted in a custom 3-ring binder with custom tabs. This book is an operation and maintenance reference guide for many Amel models. More...

This Online Amel Book is included at no charge if you have subscribed to 2 or more years of 24/7 Support. It is updated weekly and has links to over 2,500 individual files regarding your Amel. These files (Supplement) are stored in the Cloud and require the Internet to access them. More...

Amel Book Supplements are available online to all Amel Book owners: These are different than the Amel Book. This is a total of all of the Amel information I have acquired and compiled over a 15-year period. I have made available over 2,500 individual files (over 3 gigs of information) for download. If printed, this would be more than 20,000 pages. More...

Not knowing how to operate, maintain, repair, and replace systems and components will cost owners who are new to Amel from hundreds to thousands with each occurrence. And, this is true whether or not the owner hires a typical boat mechanic to do the work. I have seen this cost as much as 30,000. My 24/7 Support, coupled with my Amel Book solves the vast majority of these issues. More...
