Super Maramu Yacht Model

Dimension: Length 48 x Width 11 x Height 60 cm.


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.

Construction of the boat:

  • We place a layer of fiberglass on the hull’s planks and painted with acrylic paint.
  • Deck is made with Beech wood.
  • Wooden pieces found on the deck and the masts are made with Acajou wood.
  • Ornaments are made with Solid Brass.
  • Rigging and Sails are made with Cotton and Nylon.
