NECKER BELLE (Ex Lady Barbaretta) was built in 2003 at the CMN Shipyard in Cherbourg France. At the time of her launch she was the largest performance sailing Catamaran ever built. In 2009 NECKER BELLE completed a two-year major refit in Australia. The interior received a complete interior build-out with the addition of a fourth stateroom and the exterior upper deck was modified to achieve more deck space. Many other improvements have been made over the last few years including the installation of two brand new Caterpillar C7 main engines in 2014.
NECKER BELLE was designed to maximize fun, with a spacious trampoline, a diving board and a unique crow’s nest that lifts guests to the top of the mast. Whether youre an adrenaline seeker into sailing, scuba diving, paddle boarding and game fishing or just into some serious sun tanning action then NECKER BELLE is the yacht for you!
Great sailing performance combined with beach club styling and a carefully conceived layout to create a versatile living space for up to 10 guests. NECKER BELLE’s interior is spacious and contemporary with bamboo wood flooring and accent lighting in all the right places. Guests are accommodated in four cabins, with a master suite, a double cabin and two double/twin convertible cabins. A double sofa bed can be made up in the main saloon to provide a further two berths if required.
