NECKER BELLE can accommodate various guest’s interests whether you’re into sailing, scuba diving, paddle boarding or game fishing. The sailing performance combined with beach club styling and a carefully conceived layout to creates a versatile living space for up to 10 guests. The yacht's interior is spacious and contemporary with bamboo wood flooring and accent lighting in all the right places. Guests are accommodated in four cabins, with a master suite, a double cabin, and two double/twin convertible cabins. A double sofa bed can be converted in the main saloon to provide a further two berths if required.
As you enter the salon from the aft deck you’ll find the bar to your left and the main salon seating area to your right. Featuring a large L-shaped sofa and additional seating this is a comfortable area to sit and relax before adjourning to your cabin (which are all on the main deck).
All accommodations are directly off the main salon on the bridge deck. A unique feature which allows for ocean views from the cabins, all of which feature en-suite heads. Separated into port and starboard cabins, a center hallway separates the port side VIP cabins and on the starboard side Master and guest cabins for a total of four cabins accommodating 8 guests.
The Master suite offers stunning views of the ocean through large windows along the starboard side. There is ample storage space along with a queen size bed, en-suite head with double basin and shower. A 52-inch TV, DVD player, and sound system provide entertainment. You can also connect your smartphone or tablet to include your personal music choices.

The salon area can also be converted to accommodate an additional two people by converting the couch to a queen bed. This area features a privacy screen and separate head and shower.
The flybridge can be entered up integrated ladders but is typically accessed via the stairs at the forward end of the main salon. The stairway leads right into the main sitting area which easily accommodates 20 or more people. This area can be set up for alfresco dining or can be enjoyed as a large outdoor lounge by lowering the center table and using the cushions to fill the entire area. This is an entertainment area that features custom awnings to keep you protected from the sun during the day and allows for stargazing at night. Just aft of the sitting area are the two main helm stations and sail control centers where the captain can use the hydraulic sail management systems.

As you enter the yacht from the passerelle, day beds to the outboard of two large dining tables allow guests to comfortably rest outdoors under the shade of the aft deck during the day or sleep under the stars at night. The main entertaining area includes two large tables with seating for 16 people make for comfortable outdoor dining accommodations.
