The Sailing Yacht Kolibri,
there's no comparable sailing yacht on the world's oceans. She was built in 1996 in the shipyard of Henry Amel in La Rochelle.
Henry Amel was a perfectionist and the Super Maramu is regarded as the crowning achievement of his work and design. The design is carefully thought through down to the smallest detail due to his extensive experience and his unique perception. He handed down his shipyard to his workers and so his spirit and his respect to the sea „la respect de la mer“ and to the people live on. The shipyard Amel now ranks among the most prestigious shipyards worldwide and is famous for it’s quality and sustainable performance and service.
SY-Kolibri was in good hands. Her former owner from Switzerland was sailing just occasionally and kept her in top condition. With less than 1000 hours of motoring and almost new sails we continued sailing Kolibri in top condition.
Her home port was Port Grimaud at Saint Tropez, where the renowned shipyard SMN Chantier NavalSMN Chantier Naval took care of the maintenance.
SMN was advised to perform various maintenance and renewal tasks. The complete underwater hull was provided with a new special teflon coating. The main engine, the generator, the angular gear have been fully serviced. She was examined by an official expert and received the highest possible score. We are proud of SY Kolibri. For further details see the technical details in PDF.
The decision for this yacht was guided by high professional demands and aimed for a yacht without limits. With SY-Kolibri we approach the yachtsman’s dream of independence and freedom. With our partner agency Star Yachting we can offer the realization of this dream to friends and ambitious sailors. This is a task full of responsibility and joy.
The ship is built for all of the world’s oceans. It is safe, easy to handle, equipped with a center cockpit, that provides protection in rough seas. It has spacious berths, where it is possible to enter and walk upright.
Kolibri is equipped with:
This ship allows you to explore the world.
Sailing SY-Kolibri with her two masts alone is impressive. With extending further sails the ride is as fast as joyable. SY-Kolibri is not just fit for worldwide sailing but also fit for high seas, certified by the french marine for class 1. A distinction only a few yachts can claim for themselves.
See our videos for a detailed presentation of the Super Maramu.
SY-Kolibri allows stable and constant sailing on all courses. She is not a race yacht, but she is 10 Kn fast on all courses, without the avid interaction of skipper and crew. Reefing and rigging-up are performed electrically and the autopilot system ST 7000 is a reliable partner.
A ship for those,
who appreciate travelling.
