The Boat

Tour Our Super Maramu – Delos

Delos is a 53 foot Amel Super Maramu and she is one of the finest built cruising sailboats in the world! She was built in La Rochelle France in 2000 and has seen what most sailboats dream of seeing.

Why’d you name her “Delos?”

The name Delos may sound familiar; it is a mythical island off the coast of Greece. The story began long long ago when Zeus, god of the sky, cheated on his wife with a human. Even more disastrous – he got her pregnant. When the half-god-half-human twins were born, Zeus’ wife banned them from being born on any land. Poseidon, god of the sea, took pity and raised a small piece of land from his underwater kingdom for the twins. The island of Delos was a floating oasis for the half God, half human offspring, and is now our floating oasis.

What makes this world cruising sailboat so special?

She’s a sailing ketch (2 masts) and has enough room to comfortably sleep 6 people. Delos is able to turn salt water into fresh water, sun into energy, provide food and shelter, travel for months on end without visiting a dock and best of all, be the place we call home.
