BELLA II is a 54.7m (179.4ft) motor yacht delivered in 2008 by the Proteksan Turquoise yard to exterior designs by Paolo Caliari and interior designs by Jean Guy Verges. Her steel hull and aluminium superstructure were built to ABS classification and the yacht is RINA and MCA compliant. She has been refitted twice, once in 2011 and again in 2020, work that is ongoing.
In her 2011 refit, her interior was redesigned by Verges to feature wenge wood and dark brown and camel coloured leather along with cotton and satin in shades of white. Her current yard period involves a full repaint, changing the hull colour from white to light grey, sanding and recaulking on all decks, the fitting of a new telescopic passerelle, upgrades to the yacht's AV equipment and other routine maintenance.
Her sun deck has a jacuzzi forward, flanked with sunpads, a dedicated gym, open air dining for 12 guests and a U-shaped sun lounge with, as its focus, a glass skylight that pours natural light onto the formal dining room on the upper deck below. Watertoys are stowed on the upper deck aft on passage and there is a very large daybed for sunbathing. Forward on the upper deck is a Portuguese bridge overlooking another skylight that allows natural light into the owner's bathroom.
On the main deck aft is a good-sized glass-backed pool with sunpads and a large shaded lounge area. Steps lead down either side to a large swim platform.
There are excellent views from the upper deck formal dining room with the sliding glass doors opened and the sky lounge with fully equipped bar also features good views with plenty of glazing. The main saloon is large and open plan, again with excellent views. There is a large lounge area aft and a smaller media lounge forward with a 70in TV.
The full beam owner's suite is forward on the main deck and has a king size berth, seating areas, a his and hers bathroom in marble, lit by the skylight above, with bath and shower, walk in wardrobes and a private office. A full beam VIP suite is on the lower deck, also with a walk in wardrobe, a seating area and a desk. Three further double cabins and a twin cabin on the lower deck complete accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins.
Two 1,750hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a maximum speed of 16 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum range of 4,000nm.
