2007 Bella 572C with a Mariner 60hp outboard engine (2017), a walk-through multi-purpose boat with forward and aft self draining cockpit,ideal for fishing. Broads Authority tax paid to March 2020 and current safety certificate to July 2021. Suitable for coastal or inland use.
Step straight onto the boat from a jetty or pontoon, the built-in steps in the corners of fore and aft decks make it easy to climb back out onto the shore. On the stern there’s a folding stainless boarding ladder for access from a tender.
Moving about the boat is easy with access to fore and aft cockpits through the cabin. Plenty of free-board and stainless hand rails make for safe movement even in rough conditions.There’s even a stainless rail extending across the back of the roof and down both sides should you need to hold on to something when coming alongside. Excellent visibility from inside the cabin help accuracy when approaching a mooring buoy or pontoon.
Rated for use for up to 7 people, there’s plenty of comfortable seating inside the cabin and on deck.
The cabin is comfortable whilst underway or at rest. The adjustable sunroof and opening front and rear doors allow plenty of air movement when the weather’s hot, & lots of protection when it’s not. The helm seat is fully adjustable fore and aft and the seat back folds down when required.The forward facing passenger seat folds down and hinges fully forward to reveal a space below where you can fit a small cooker and sink if required. The 2 single bunks have storage space under to stow rods and tackle out of view. There are adjustable ventilation grilles above both rear windows help to keep damp out during storage.There is also interior lighting and a 12v power point.
At the back of the cabin roof the stainless handrail extends full width with the steaming light mounted high up in the centre.Ventilation grilles are located above each window and the handrail continues down both sides of the cabin. Note also the full width sliding sunroof which may be locked open in different positions. High handrails on both sides give maximum safety but do not impede movement or get in the way when fishing or mooring.
The forward deck is easily accessible from the cabin through the sliding door. There is also room to walk around outside the cabin with stainless handrails extending the full length at roof height.The deck is self draining, has enough room for 4 rods and will seat 4 passengers when under way. From the cabin there is excellent visibility for-ward and the window in front of the wheel has a windscreen wiper. Stainless handrails and cleats provide maxi-mum safety and secure mooring forward. The anchor locker has a self-closing lid that will not lift at speed. Seating for 2 is available over the roomy fender locker which also has a lockable cover.It is also easy to step up over the locker onto the bow for access between the handrails for-ward to exit the boat over the bow when coming in bow-on to a pontoon. The corner seats on both sides immediately in front of the cabin double up as steps to make it easy to step off on the side especially as the stainless handrails terminate just in front to avoid obstruction
