The Best of Both Worlds

Belle is an elegant custom built 1929 design bridge deck cruiser with a traditional mahogany house and interior.  Built in 1982, she is crafted in classic style with modern materials and techniques.  What sets Belle apart from other classics is her exceptionally strong and lightweight Airex-fiberglass hull.

The current owners purchased Belle 15 years ago and completely restored her. They have made more than $300,000 in improvements over and above her purchase price. Virtually all systems have been replaced.  She has been boathouse kept for the past 15 years. She has only about 1,500 hours on her Isuzu 120 diesel engine since a major rebuild by Klassen Diesel. She cruises at 9 knots using about 2.5 gallons/hour. She is 47' long with a beam of 12 feet.

Belle is an ideal vessel for economical, comfortable cruising or would make a great live aboard/cruiser. She can sleep five people, two on her king size bed in the forepeak, two on a U shaped couch that converts to a double bed in the salon and one on the "captains berth" in the pilot house. She can seat six people in the main salon, four at the dining booth, three in the pilot house, four on the aft deck and two in the teak recliners on the foredeck. She has copious storage space, fuel and water tankage.

Belle is a true classic; she is a member of the Classic Yacht Association and has won the Peoples Choice Award twice at the Bell Harbor Classic Rendezvous.  She is one of the only fiberglass boats ever invited to attend the Victoria Classic Boat Festival. She is available with or without her boathouse (B246) at the Tacoma Yacht Club.

To reproduce Belle today with her custom mahogany interior and exterior is estimated to cost $1,500,000.00. She can be yours for $299,000.  If kept in pristine condition this is a vessel you could cruise for years and may be able to sell for more than you pay for her.

She has a fiberglass hull… and a mahogany heart.
