The Amel 53 Super Maramu offers a center cockpit layout that affords a very deep & protected center cockpit for security while on deck while giving you a large aft cabin with a huge double berth. 

As you descend the companionway, the well equipped offshore galley is to port with a great nav station to starboard. Moving forward is the U shaped dinette to port with additional refrigeration under the seats. To starboard is a straight settee.

Forward of the main bulkhead is the head to port and an open forward cabin with berths port & starboard.

Aft of the companionway to starboard is the passage way to the aft stateroom. There is a single berth outboard in the passageway that makes for a very comfortable and secure sea berth.

The aft stateroom features a large double berth to port with a dressing area/desk area to starboard. There is a large hanging locker and large head with shower.

The stowage is excellent throughout the boat. Amel certainly had long range cruising in mind and provided a place to put everything.
