I will share my experience with Amel yachts, or any question I can answer about yachting with you at no cost for 1 hour.

5 Year 24/7 Support          $1,800 
*$1500 if you already have an Amel Book and will forego new book fillers shipped with every major printing. 
Included in 5 Year 24/7 Support is a new Amel Book each time there is a major new printing of the book, 5 years special access Online Amel Book, and Transshipment of parts purchased from US retailers such as Amazon via DHL to anywhere in the world, charging only for the cost of transport to you. With the addition of the Online Amel Book, some 5 Year 24/7 Support clients may choose to forego the mailings of a new book at each major new printing and rely on downloads of new pages and access to the Online Amel Book. If you already have an Amel Book and you opt-out of the 400-page fillers each time there is a major new printing of the book, the price is reduced by $300. NEW All 5 Year 24/7 Support Clients now have access to the Online Amel Book (click for a sample view)

FastTrack Course with 24/7 Support for New Owners  $1,000 Plus Shipping 
Support, Amel Book, Updates, & Discounts

With FastTrack, new owners of Amel Yachts will receive the 400-page Amel Book, 2 years of 24/7 Support, the Yacht School Training and Orientation Outline for self-education, Owners Manuals, Amel Book Supplements, and substantial Discounts on Amel OEM parts, and access to the Online Amel Book (click for a sample view)Extended Support is available.
