This very comprehensive refit addressed structural issues and, among many improvements too numerous to mention individually, strengthened the vessel, upgraded her steering to a new hydraulic system and repositioned the helm stations, re-rigged her with a carbon mast of 38m high and re-engineered the structure of the mast base. Sailing Cat NECKER BELLE has a Range – 1,500 nautical miles under cruising speed and a tonnage of 171 tons.

At the same time the superyacht's interior was treated to a totally new electrical system and wiring, a complete overhaul of the engine room, and a completely new scheme of interior decoration in which all surface materials were replaced or refurbished to provide a relaxed beach house atmosphere. Thanks to this thorough refit, which addressed the many issues affecting the original catamaran, this attractive yacht now has a new lease of life.
