HULL & DECK:
Launched in 1987, BELAIR is constructed of composite California redwood/ glass/epoxy resin sandwich on massive laminated kauri floors and frames. The hull is 32mm (1.25 inches)planks edge glued with 32 ounce triaxial fiberglass plus two layers of 12 ounce glass cloth inside and outside. The decks are three inches thick with the same core/glass construction overlaid with marine plywood sealed with glass cloth, and teak decks laid into fiberglass resin glue. The teak deck was refinished in 2013.The center cockpit design with high topsides and waterproof enclosure provides for a very dry and protected cockpit. The foredeck is clean without "Toe Stubbers", and has five large deck hatches. The trunk cabin has an attractive low profile , and extends the main saloon roof providing about 7'- 8' headroom below. This trunk cabin is varnished heavy teak.
BELAIR has a voluminous interior layout, offering seven berths in three separate cabins, a large saloon and galley, two separate heads with full sized wash basins and a separate shower stall up forward. In spite of this, BELAIR is relatively light at 15 tons displacement.
This vessel is a very fast ocean passage maker having been first boat home in regattas from New Zealand to Tonga, and New Zealand to New Caledonia, featuring up to fifty other vessels. A full stern platform built into the transom with fish hold under a floor grate makes it ideal for the keen fisherman. A shower is provided above the platform for a fresh water washdown.
The cockpit is spacious and includes a solid fiberglass pedestal with large wheel and binnacle Sestral compass, together with a removable teak and kauri table. The cockpit sole is covered by a teak grate, engine RPM counter, oil pressure and temperature gauges as well as wind, speed/direction, log and depth sounder are situated here for constant viewing while underway.
BELAIR has painted white Awlgripped topsides in 2001 with maroon boottop and black bottom, maroon sail cover, maroon dodger, grey Bimini, varnished teak rails and superstructure. The stanchions are large size to marine survey standard. All deck fittings are substantial and to the highest quality including huge Canon turning blocks, multiple sheet leads, 32" Barlow S.T. winches, removable inner forestay, through line leads combined with substantial cleats.
SAILING & POWERING PERFORMANCE:
BELAIR is a superb performer as a sailing vessel. Her hull is very easily driven with a six ton semi fin keel on which she is designed to stand against piles, and a large skeg rudder imparting good control though a Wagner hydraulic steering system.
The result under sail is very stiff and powerful vessel to windward, close hauling to 33 degrees to the apparent wind, fast on all points of sail, maintaining good performance even in light airs, unusual in a cruising vessel of this size. Under sail in blue water conditions 200 mile days are not unusual with BELAIR maintaining a steady boat speed between 8 to 9 knots.
ENGINE & MECHANICAL:
BELAIR has a 44 HP Yanmar diesel driving a hydraulic gearbox and an Australian stainless Max prop. The Yanmar is well protected by salt water cooler intake filter, and triple oversized diesel filters. Batteries are charged by the excellent hand wound Balmar 140 amp hour alternator and high input regulator system especially developed for cruising yachts.
A heavy duty refrigerator system has also been immaculately maintained to ensure no refrigeration losses in the tropics. Current owners have owned BELAIR for 15 years. Bought in New Zealand they sailed to the Pacific Islands for several seasons before sailing north to Alaska via the Cook Islands, Christmas Island and Hawaii in 2003. They then sailed extensively down the west coasts of North and South America sailing through Patagonia, around Cape Horn, to the Falkland Islands, continuing up the east coast of South America arriving in the Caribbean in 2009. Without a doubt, BELAIR has proven herself in all weather conditions.
