Dubbel & Jesse sailing yacht Vita Bella for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
The 24.95 metre sailing yacht Vita Bella has been jointly listed for sale by dahm international and Fine Yachts.
Built in aluminium by German yard Dubbel & Jesse to a design by Joachim Kinder, she was delivered in 1991 and regularly upgraded since, including a full refit in 2011. Accommodation is for six guests consisting of a master suite amidships and two twins forward, all with entertainment centres and en suite shower facilities. In addition there is a twin cabin aft for two crew.
A large and comfortable saloon with mahogany panelling has built in semi-circular seating around a round table and offers a bar, ice maker and entertainment system. There is also updated heating and air conditioning throughout this yacht for sale. The aft deck area can be protected from the sun by a removable awning and a stainless steel ladder leads down to a carbon fibre swim platform.
On the technical side, Vita Bella is sloop rigged with a carbon fibre mast and boom by Southern Spars, Elvstrom sails and Lewmar hydraulic winches. One of her upgrades included the installation of a Quantum Fusion in-boom mainsail furling system, enabling worldwide cruising with a small crew. All the rigging has been completely checked and renovated in 2012.
Under power, twin 168hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 10 knots and she comes complete with a tender, two sets of scuba diving equipment and a Bauer dive compressor.
Lying in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Vita Bella is asking €950,000 with VAT paid.
