All boats involve trade-offs. There just does not seem to be a perfect one out there. Ours is a larger boat than you mentioned -- 16 meters or about 53-ft. Definitely built for ocean crossings and can be handled solo easily even if all the electric
and hydraulic niceties fail and must be handled manually. There is a manual override for everything.
Our son recently visited us in Greece
for a couple of weeks. He is 6 ft 6 1/2 inches tall and weighs just over 400 lbs. --- yes, that is not a typo. Over 6 1/2 ft tall and over 400 lbs. He fit in both our heads and showers with no problems. Plenty of headroom
in the saloon
and forward head
and inside the aft head
; he had to duck like everyone else in the passageway and when going through the 'submarine' doorways at the points of the watertight bulkheads.
Our boat is an Amel Super Maramu 2000, year model 2003. This is not an attractive boat but one we have been extremely comfortable living aboard
full-time --- now in our 6th year. The aft cabin bed
is what boat manufacturers call a queen size. In reality it is more like only a double or full size one would find in a home. Don't believe the manufacturer's literature claiming queen sized beds in boats. Check these out and you will find the beds are much smaller than what one is accustomed to in a home or hotel
More importantly in your boat search, check out any prospective boat's engine
room or engine
compartment. Then check out the engine room on an Amel Super Maramu 2000.
Good luck in your boat search.
happy owner of an ugly Amel
