The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


The Amel name is synonymous with a high quality blue water cruising yacht whether built in the 1990’s or the current day. This Santorin is no exception, always in private ownerships. The first French owners sailed her in the Med from 1995 until they sold her to Italian friends in 2005.

Since 2005 she was berthed in Siracuse, Italy then cruising in Turkey and Greece where she has spent many of the last years. A well equipped, comfortable centre cockpit cruising yacht.
