READY for YOUR CRUISE of a LIFETIME!!
"OLD WORLD" CHARM AND CAPABILITY with
"NEW WORLD" REFINEMENTS
EASILY HANDLED BY A CRUISING COUPLE!
"BELLA" lives up to her name as she is unquestionably one of the finest Formosa 51's ever offered. Her knowledgeable owner has spent 10 years and untold thousands of dollars bringing her back to "exceptional". About the only thing on this small ship not re-worked is her fiberglass hull! All other components have been made new, tweaked, added to, or improved.
If crossing Oceans in comfort and safety is your goal then "Bella" is a MUST-SEE. She is easily handled by a cruising couple while providing her owners with the sense of being one with the sea.
Here are just a few of her recent improvements:
We look forward to introducing "Bella" to you at your earliest convenience. Prepare to be impressed!

Forward of the settee is the generous nav station with chair. The steering station was removed from the pilothouse as it served no useful function as located. This space now accommodates the new electrical panels and wiring. The entire pilothouse overhead and windows were removed from the boat and completely rebuilt eliminating the moisture problems found in other Formosa's.

"Bella" is a small ship that has been thoughtfully outfitted to provide the owner and his wife with a vessel that could be sailed by just the two of them and yet provide the security and comfort that could only be obtained by a vessel larger than usually selected by a couple sailing alone. The result is a cruiser with maximum space and comfort allocated to the owner and spouse while providing ample accommodations for guests. Bella is just back from the Bahamas and is ready to go again. Her owner will be happy to spend ample time with you on-board to learn Bella's ways and get you comfortable with her.
She awaits your closest inspection!
