      We have a 2003 model Super Maramu 2000, built November 2002. We
      strongly suspect that the clothes dryer is not vented correctly. The
      washing function works great, but the dryer leaves the
      clothes "steamed" rather than dry. They get too hot to touch, but
      still quite moist. Our only conclusion is that the dryer is not
      vented correctly.

      The manual onboard is simply a users manual, with no description of
      the installation process. Can anyone tell us how this dryer is
      supposed to be vented?

      Thanks in advance,

      The dryer in the SM 2000 is not vented. Heat is created by evaporation/condensation of fresh water. You will use 20 gallons of water to get your clothes warm

        The AMEL 54 has a vented dryer but the AMEL 53 does not.

        Have fun with your boat.

          Hi, I have SM 407 of May 2003 and had last year the same problem.
          Amel at Hyeres took the mahine out and got it repaired. It was a
          little problem in the elecronics. Since then it works OK again.
          Best regards
