Our Boat

TouRai is an Amel Super Maramu built in La Rochelle, France in 2003.  As a 53 foot long monohull with a ketch rig, she was designed to cross oceans with a small crew.

When we began looking for a boat that would serve as our family’s full time home, we spent hours, days and weeks online reading reviews, recommendations, first hand accounts and most everyone’s personal opinions.  This led to numerous searches on Yachtworld which eventually led to several trips to Annapolis and then Green Cove Springs and Ft. Lauderdale.  Along the way we looked at boats from Tayana, Hylas, Stevens, and others before concluding that the Amel was right for us.
