Bella 9000

The Bella 9000 is as sensible as the

APB (above right) is wacky. An aft-cabin 30ft cruiser, the 9000 boasts a

central cockpit that 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. A

single Yanmar 180hp diesel sterndrive delivers a 20-knot cruise at 33 litres an

hour and the handling is safe, planted and predictable. There can be few boats

of this length that offer the space, accommodation and cruising ability going

on here.
