General Details

The French boatyard of Henri Amel has been building high quality cruising sailboats for more than thirty years, their successful ingredient the unique combination of elegance, simplicity and functionality incorporated into each yacht. Elegant in her design and construction, simple in her systems, and functional in her layout and outfitting, PAPA II is an extraordinary blue water cruising vessel. The Super Maramu 2000's unique engine and mechanical space is completely isolated from the main cabin - both sound insulated and watertight. The result is exceptional stand up access to the engine, genset, filters, pumps and electrical system. On deck, her spacious cockpit with large folding table easily accommodates a large group of guests for cocktail hour. The cockpit is protected by a hard dodger and bimini which can easily be stowed forward and out of the way. Below decks, the spacious and comfortable interior is finished in striking African mahogany. Two private staterooms and additional sea berths in the aft passageway and main salon will accommodate six. Load carrying capacity above and below decks is well conceived and amply sized for all the gear necessary for long term cruising. Equipped with a NEW Onan 7kW genset installed in July 2012, watermaker, bow thruster, Climma heat and air conditioning, cloths washer, dish washer, B&G and Furuno electronics, Raymarine autopilot, and solar pannels, PAPA II is well prepared to head for blue water and far off shores.

Additional Equipment


PAPA II's interior accommodations are characteristic of Amel's unique design approach. She is finished in gloss varnished African mahogany bulkheads and trim, with a combination mahogany and fiberglass cabin sole. Floorboards are hinged to allow easy access to storage below. Three wide steps lead from PAPA II's cockpit down into her main salon. Her spacious interior with two staterooms sleeps six. Both staterooms have private heads with integral showers. There is ample storage space for personal gear, spares, stores and other equipment throughout the yacht in large lockers, cabinets and finished storage spaces below the cabin sole.

Starting forward, the guest stateroom features a comfortable arrangement with berths to port and starboard. There is excellent storage in four lockers with a shelf and drawer above each berth along the hull side. Forward, there are two lockers with a shelf above. Below each berth, there is excellent compartmentalized storage. A small writing table stows out of the way against the aft bulkhead. Light and ventilation are provided by a bulkhead mounted lamp, two reading lights, two fixed portlights and an opening hatch.

Aft of the forward stateroom is a passageway to the main cabin. Outboard along the hull side is a large hanging locker. To port is the forward head. The sole is fiberglass with a deep molded sump which is covered by a teak grate. The bulkheads are finished in vinyl with mahogany trim. A shower is integral to the space. A curtain surrounds the shower area. The shower wand is mounted on the aft bulkead. At the forward end of the compartment is a deep sink with single lever faucet and molded soap tray.

Light is provided by three bulkhead mounted lamps, one overhead light and four fixed portlights. An opening hatch above provides light and ventilation.

The galley is aft of the salon to port. The deep U-shaped arrangement creates an excellent seagoing galley with ample counter and storage space. At the forward inboard end, a panel lifts to reveal the top-loading Thomson washer/dryer. Just inboard is a long open counter space that is divided into three sections with teak fiddles to prevent items from sliding. Below, there are two drawers - one with dividers for silverware and two large lockers - one with bottle storage, the other with three shelves. Further outboard is a cleverly arranged dry storage locker with customizable shelves. Above and outboard along the hull side is a locker with two shelves.

A long shelf runs the length of the counter. There are two smaller shelves below and two stainless soap/sponge holders above the sink. Below the aft counter, there are two large lockers. A trash bin is mounted on the back of the outboard locker door. Below the starboard end of the counter is a large front loading fridge. There is additional fridge/freezer space in large compartments below the fore and aft dinette settees and a custom top loading freezer below the nav station seat.

The outboard facing nav station is adjacent to the bottom of the companionway to starboard. The Furuno GPS and radar displays, ICOM VHF and SSB radios, B&G Hydra 2000 FFD display and Sony CD/stereo receiver are located outboard above the large chart table. The lift-top panel reveals a large locker below the chart table for full size charts. Two drawers below provide storage for other navigational instruments.
