Bella Boats 9000

Every other year Finland’s island-strewn Archipelago plays host to the country’s latest boat designs

The Bella 9000 is as sensible as the APB (above right) is wacky. An aft-cabin 30ft cruiser, the 9000 boasts a central cockpit which doubles as the saloon with a neat galley opposite the dinette. In the forward cabin the berth cunningly ‘jigsaws’ between two singles or a central double, while back aft there’s a double and a single berth. A sliding door next to the helm allows easy access to the side deck and, in conjunction with a huge opening sunroof and an open back, the wheelhouse feels as fresh as could be.


Top Speed: 22 knots
Beam: 10ft 10in (3.30m)
