  1. 30-meter Performance Cruiser "Bella" Delivered
    A 30-meter Performance Cruising sailing yacht has recently been completed and delivered to her owner. The yacht was built by a yard called YYachts and has been christened as "Bella". While the yacht evokes a luxury feeling onboard via its minimal contemporary décor and design the vessel is very much a performance-oriented yacht. In fact, the yachts construction was made out of carbon fiber just to enhance her performance capabilities.
  2. On the exterior you will find design and Naval Architecture by Bill Tripp. One of the main facets to the design of the yacht was the ability for ease of use. In other words it must be easy to operate with a just few persons onboard. Tripp said, "we have designed a boat that can comfortably be sailed by a few people. Equipped with a self-tacking jib, hydraulic furling code sail and staysail, these boats can sail well in blue water and in the worst conditions and have light air performance to attract the keenest of sailors." The design of this yacht is from the so-called 'Yseries' and follows on from the award-winning Y7.
  3. That minimal contemporary interior was the work between Design Unlimited and Norm Architects. Oak has been utilized on the interior and many curved or slanting surfaces designed to give the eye the impression of larger spaces. This is particularly important when working on a 100-foot vessel. The crew cabins are particularly spacious which is purposeful as the owner and design team wanted to keep the crew happy and that usually translates into satisfaction for the owner.
  4. When white surfaces combine with ample glazing and tall ceilings it creates a sense of spaciousness. Below we see the main salon area onboard this yacht and how the designers utilized color, shape and materials to achieve a voluminous space. The interior design language is actually termed soft minimalism taking inspiration from the simplicity associated with Scandinavian elegance and design. The interior rooms all offer ample contrast without compromising the feeling of spaciousness.
  5. Since she is a Performance Cruiser, she is of sloop configuration but her tall mast helps provide the space for a large main sail that measures in the region of 242 square meters alone. For close-quarters maneuvering or when the wind is less-than-ideal, the vessel is powered by a pair of Volvo Penta engines which can be fed by fuel tanks holding up to 3,000 LT of fuel. Fresh water storage amounts to 2,000 LT. Bella measures 29.71-meters long with a beam of 6.8-meters and a maximum draft of 4.7-meters (with the ability to be reduced to 4.1-meters).
