A unique opportunity to purchase a long-distance cruising vessel with all the necessary equipment. She has been lovingly looked after with countless upgrades to her extensive inventory. Viewing at Port Solent available at short notice by calling +44 (0)2392 373300.
Only sailed in local waters for day trips, I believe Bella Dessa is the best example of her kind on the market. Her performance under sail following the change from Ketch to Sloop rig has transformed the boat into a true sailing yacht. The interior has benefited from being stripped out and refitted above and below decks with up-to-date changes to the living spaces and rigging. She has had all modern conveniences installed such as generator and water maker so she can sail around the world and be self-sufficient and practical.
