At this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Belize 66 Daybridge was unveiled for the first time. The 66 Daybridge, with her sleek and tapered window line, curvaceous transom design and free-flowing bridge form, has been designed for all seasons, and all reasons.
“The 66 Daybridge will give yachtsmen seeking a true, long-range motor yacht with expansive and flexible living and accommodation spaces their ultimate motor yacht. The Belize 54 Daybridge has been exceptionally popular since her release and we believe the 66 will follow with great admiration and acceptance,” Riviera Australia CEO Wes Moxey, says.
“The interior volume and level of appointment and craftsmanship, along with her effortless performance, will really set the 66 apart.”
An immensely accommodating four-cabin arrangement has been specified for the Daybridge featuring a classic layout with the master stateroom amidships with ensuite bathroom on the starboard side, VIP guest stateroom forward with ensuite, port guest cabin with ensuite that also serves as the day head and a twin bunk cabin to starboard.
The saloon of the Daybridge has a helm console to starboard, accommodating a single-seat, 22-inch screen, sports wheel and controls. To port of the helm is a dining area.
The main helm station is on the bridge and boasts two 22-inch navigation screens and a 17-inch screen integrated with the Volvo Penta systems. Three pedestal helm seats are upholstered with premium Sunbrella outdoor fabric.
The Daybridge access is via internal stairs adjacent to the aft galley, offering optimum safety when underway and keeps the cockpit space uncluttered. Optional front and side clears can be fitted to the Daybridge, while for added comfort, optional air-conditioning vents can provide a cool breeze.
The wetbar contains two fridges and an icemaker, plus an optional electric twin-grill barbecue. There’s also an L-shaped lounge surrounding a stunning timber dining table.
A tender garage resides beneath the large teak-laid cockpit, availing the foredeck space to be utilised for a U-shaped lounge surrounding an additional timber table.
Volvo Penta IPS3 drives, married to D-13 1350 engines, will deliver a top speed of around over 30 knots, according to Mr Moxey.
“We’ve seen that the hull handles extremely efficiently from a performance, economy and range perspective whilst delivering a ride that just has to be experienced to believed.”
