Replacement to the MANGO 52.
Listed Sail Area: From Amel’s documentation on standard upwind sails:
Main Sail: 35 sq Metres
Genoa: 67 sq Metres
Mizzen: 19 sq Metres
Total: 121 sq Metres (1,302 sq feet)

It can also carry (at the same time as the above although you usually drop the main):
Ballooner: 69 sq Metres
Mizzen Ballooner: 35 sq Metres
Which would bring the total to 190 sq Metres (2,045 sq feet)
Auxillary power: There were three different standard engines used, the Perkins MT80 (80 HP) was the original, the similar but rebranded Volvo TMD22A (78-83 HP) and the Yanmar 4JH4-HE (78 HP). The most popular engine by far was the Volvo TMD22A
The SUPER MARAMU 2000 was introduced in 1999.
