We do not see many of the 39′  Amel Sharki  in the USA.  Tina recently arrived in the US, having taken it’s owners on a year-long adventure from Europe to the Caribbean and up the East Coast to Deltaville. This vessel has spent most of its life near St Tropez in the Mediterranean.

The ‘Amel DNA’  is evident in the design:  Fin keel, fiberglass toerails, solid S/S safety rails from bow to stern, Amel painted decking, ketch rig, deep cockpit, hard dodger, wide side decks, engine access through the floor of the cockpit, watertight companionway and watertight forward bulkhead. Tina has a Lombardini 60HP engine that was installed in 2006. The ketch rig & fin keel makes this boat very manouverable  and manageable to sail, especially with the electric genoa furler.

Tina has the following upgrades and cruising gear:

ROCNA 20KG Anchor 
CQR 35 lb anchor
Furlex Electric furler on forestay
Lofrans Tigres Electric Windlass
Seasafe 6 pax Liferaft (in date)
ACR EPIRB (2021)
New Blue Wave Standing Rigging (2021)
New running rigging (2021 – as needed)
Hard dodger and bimini
Solar Panels (4 x 150W)

Lavac Vacuflush toilet
Handheld VHF
Raymarine ST6001 Autopilot
Taylor’s Heater

Buyers should be aware that this boat has a number of outstanding projects to be completed by a new owner. Improvements to the electrical systems, electronics, cooking gas and a full bottom strip would be some of the items to be considered. 

Tina has EU VAT Paid and US taxes paid too.




The Galley is to port as you descend the companionway stairs, with plenty of storage, it has a fridge, stove w/ oven and double sink.  To starboard is the nav station, with electronics of varying ages.

Behind the nav station is a walk-through to the aft cabin.  The walk-through has extensive storage on the hull side and astroturf on the floor.  The aft cabin has a sink and a vanity just inside the entry, with storage below and behind it.  The double berth is Pullman style on the port side of the cabin. It has storage below and portlights in the cabin top, on both sides and at the stern.  A hatch provides ventilation.

The salon consists of 2 straight settees with a central table that has leaves that fold up as needed. More storage, behind and above the settees.  Through the forward bulkhead is a head to port, with shower, basin and toilet and a hanging locker to starboard.  The forward cabin is roomy, with a V-berth that is configured as 2 separate bunks, but which can be joined by an insert.  There is an overhead hatch and at the foot of the bunks is the mechanism which controls the bowthruster.
