ABOUT SUZY BELLE

SUZY BELLE, a 60' Grand Alaskan Pilothouse has been luxuriously updated and has been meticulously maintained by knowledgeable owners since their purchase on this yacht in 2013. A great live-aboard or long range cruiser with very economical D-rated 275hp Caterpillars and the low profile and solid fiberglass hull of this yacht results in an extremely stable and safe vessel. She features three staterooms, including a spacious mid-ships master with private entrance. Her bright and airy salon is adjacent to the on-deck galley with convenient day head nearby. The timeless handsome profile of this Pilothouse yacht, great visibility, beautiful high gloss teak interior, excellent handling characteristics, full walkaround decks with Portuguese bridge, and great systems make this yacht a first choice for a cruising couple, or for family use.

WALKTHROUGH

SUZY BELLE is an exceptional three stateroom raised pilothouse offshore cruiser. Her design and equipment allows for easy operation by a couple without the need for crew.

A large aft deck/cockpit with built in seating leads into a spacious salon through double doors, or allows easy access with built in steps to an integrated swim platform. Covered walk around decks with bulwarks and a Portuguese bridge forward make line handling simple and provide safety at sea. The foredeck has a built in seat ahead of the Portuguese bridge, and easy access to the double capstan windlass with a substantial anchoring system and ground tackle.

The main salon and galley are adjoined with abundant built in seating, dining area, large opening windows, on deck head, granite galley counters, pantry, and with exceptional headroom provide a very spacious feeling. Moving three steps up and forward is the raised pilothouse, with built in seating, hinged table, Stidd helm seat, opening port and starboard doors, chart and additional storage areas and great visibility. From an inside staircase on the starboard side of the Pilothouse there is access to a huge flybridge with a Stidd seat, built in seating, vast storage areas, tender and davit.

A curved staircase from the pilothouse leads to the two guest staterooms, including a large guest stateroom with upper and lower berths to port, large guest head and shower to starboard. The VIP centerline queen berth stateroom in located further forward with ensuite acess to guest head.
