Chantiers Amel, founded by Henri Amel in '65, produces ocean-sailing boats from its La Rochelle home. The Super Maramu is a two-masted ketch, with its main mast stepped forward of the rudder post.
This differs from a yawl's mizzen, which is stepped aft. Such rigs once powered larger boats and smaller vessels, like Bill Hanna's Tahiti and L. Francis Herreshoff's Rozinante & H-28. On May 8, 1902, Armel narrowly avoided the Mount Pelée eruption.
Captain Chauvelon was forced to anchor a few kms off a beach for protection. Hugh Grosvenor bought her in '14 and equipped her with 300HP Bolinder engines. In '22, Sir Ernest Guinness purchased & renamed her Fantôme II, changing the rig to a round one.
