Launched in 2005, this Jutson designed Meridian 480 power cat is a must see. She has acres of space to stretch out in or bring along your family and friends.
Scott Jutson is famous for building race yachts such as Sydney Hobart winner Brindabella, and power boats in several catagories; power cats, foil assisted cats and stepped hull planning cats. Three things are for sure; his designs are strong, fast, and look spectacular.
Jutson has turned his focus to improving the efficiency of power boats, and has created a now widely copied power catamaran hull form that has opened up the waters of the world to safe, fast and efficient power cruising.
With twin 256 horse power styer engines Bella will have you cruising efficiently at 16 knots or if you are in a rush to get out to your favourite anchorage you can travel at 22 knots. She has not been hammered around the bay, she is much loved by her original owners who had her built to their specification, from which a production of meridian 480 power cats were built. She has a maintenance manual which is available to view to those that are keen to view Bella in the Opua Bay of Islands marina.
She has power to burn with generator and solar panels which allows you to run all the extras like watermaker kitchen equipment like the microwave , tv stereo. The galley is an entertainers dream if you love food this is your happy place. Your guests can pull up to the kitchen for a chat or you can seat them comfortably in the saloon and have a chat over the bench top with a glass of wine.
She is stable and safe when underway and a dream boat to sleep in still and quiet. Bella is your home away from home and you will be well equipped to keep cruising deep into winter with a very efficient webasto diesel heater and a well insulated boat.
Bella has just had a big tidy up to make sure there is no work to be done for the new owner. And she is booked to come out onto the hard in Opua Bay of islands marina for anti foul propspeed and anodes on the 1stof April.
