Beginning Forward there is a large chain locker that is isolated from the accommodation by a full height water tight collision bulkhead with a water tight door allowing access into the chain locker.

Access to the bow thruster is also in a locker forward of the cabin

The guest stateroom is just aft and has a very large v-berth with provided filler panel and cushion that then converts this v-berth into a large double berth to port with a single berth to starboard. . – Just aft to starboard is a very generously sized hanging locker with the guest head opposite to Port   The guest head has a vanity with wash basin, marine toilet and an integral shower with a well-designed spray curtain that effectively provides a stall shower.

Just aft of the head area is the Salon.  The saloon is separated from the forward accommodation by a full height watertight collision bulkhead with a watertight door.  The saloon contains a very spacious u-shaped dinette with table to Port and a Pilot Berth opposite to starboard.  There are numerous storage lockers and drawers below the pilot berth and outboard.  There are also numerous storage lockers outboard of the Dining settee and storage below the settee, as well as an additional refrigerated compartment below the seat.   The full-sized navigation station is aft of the salon to starboard with the u-shaped galley directly opposite to port.  The navigation station faces outboard with a large chart table and a pylon seat.   There is storage inside the chart table for navigation supplies as well as two drawers and two lockers just beneath. Just next to the navigation station is a large hanging locker, suitable for jackets and foul weather gear.

The Large U-shaped Galley (on Port side) has extensive counter space and storage cabinets. It is convenient to the companionway stairs to the cockpit, and the lower dinette

The passageway to the aft cabin runs along the Starbd side of the vessel and contains a single berth with Storage just beneath.  This is an excellent sea berth, as it is located quite low inside the vessel and very close to the center of the boat, fore & Aft -There is also a door to the engine room along this companionway.

The owner’s stateroom is all the way aft and has a full height watertight collision bulkhead at its entry with a watertight door.  There is another full height watertight bulkhead at the extreme aft end of the owner’s stateroom, partitioning this cabin from the huge “garage” lazarette accessed from on deck.  The owner’s stateroom has an ensuite head to port.  There is a large double berth to port with a settee and vanity opposite to starboard. 




There is also a watertight crash bulkhead forward

Salon: The interior features a “yacht quality” burl wood interior with excellent joiner work.  The main salon features a U-shaped dinette with table that seats six comfortably and a locker and drawer storage outboard. Opposite to starboard is a Pullman style sea berth and additional storage.  Galley occupies the after section of the Salon with a working counter and double SS sink that separates the two areas.

A helpful note is in order here.  Most North Americans tend to worry about 220-volt A.C. systems as we are used to 110-volt A.C. systems Briefly, 95% of all docks in the U.S.A. have 220-volt A.C. power.  Most powerboats use 220-volt, often employing a “splitter”. If only 110-volt A.C. is available dockside, there is an available double cord that converts two 110-volt dockside outlets into one 220-volt outlet.  They cost less than $400 new. Another fact is that 90% of the world, other than the North American Continent, is 220-volt.  As Amel’s are voyaging boats, they are set up to receive the most commonly available shore power

The Amel Super Mango has a construction technique that is unique in the industry.  The yield is an extremely strong and solid one piece hull and deck assembly; a true monocoque. All Amels, since 1967, have been built with Amel designed biaxial fiberglass cloth.  This is a flat woven fiberglass cloth that is much stronger in sheer and tension than

All Amels, since 1967, have been built with Amel designed biaxial fiberglass cloth.  This is a flat woven fiberglass cloth that is much stronger in sheer and tension than conventional mat and woven roving laminates.  It is lighter, stronger, and better.  The hull is molded in one piece incorporating one piece/non-spliced lengths of biaxial cloth running from bulwark, down through the keel/centerline, and up to the opposite bulwark.  In the same fashion, the next series of laminates run from the bow lengthwise to the stern, again, employing one piece/non-spliced lengths of biaxial cloth. 

The deck assembly is built in a similar fashion.  While the hull is a solid fiberglass laminate with no core, the deck assembly employs a core of Baltek vertical end grain balsa in strategic horizontal areas to enhance stiffness and is insulation from heat and noise.  There are also substrates of “Iron Wood” in the deck assembly where cleats and the windlass are installed to easily accommodate the increased compression and shearing loads in the foredeck.

While the completed one-piece hull is still in the mold, ALL the furniture and structural bulkheads, less non-structural drawers and cabinet faces, are installed.  After all the structural assemblies are completely installed, the separately completed deck assembly is joined to the hull (again, while it is still in the mold) with six layers of the same biaxial cloth used in the primary laminations, around the entire hull to deck interface. 

What this accomplishes, effectively, is the elimination of a conventional hull to deck joint.  The hull and deck are married with a homogeneous fiberglass matrix, which insures a strong and leak free hull and deck join for the entire life of the vessel.
