Charter Champion: Captain Dominic Armistead of 75.4 Metre Bella Vita
With an ice-classed hull and nautical range of more than 7,000 miles 75.4 metre Bella Vita (formerly Northern Star) is ideal for those seeking an adventurous charter experience. With a top cruising speed of 17 knots she is extremely comfortable underway, and her tenders include two Zodiac Hurricanes and a Hinkley T29R.
Despite her explorer credentials Bella Vita’s six decks are packed with luxury amenities, including a cinema, gym and beauty salon. Her interior, designed by Pauline Nunns, is described as being similar to a “grand country home” and offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in six cabins.
Here her captain, Dominic Armistead, explains why she is such a versatile charter yacht and how his crew ensure a top experience for guests on board.
Bella Vita is available for charter with Moran Yacht & Ship, with a weekly charter rate starting from €650,000 per week.
