New Model: Belize 52 Daybridge

All you could want with that something on top, that is how the Belize 52 Daybridge presents itself in the official website. That unique wind in hair and sun on face boating experience came alive when the stunning new Belize 52 Daybridge made her world debut at the Sydney International Boat Show. Following on from the considerable success of the new 52 Sedan nine sold just after its launch, Belize impressed boating enthusiasts with the new Daybridge flybridge version recording three sales at the show. The Daybridge features a plush L-shaped lounge with hi-lo table, which can be converted to a second sun pad. The second helm station located on the Daybridge offers essential navigation aids, and if the weather becomes too hot, or cold, the Daybridge cover can be snapped on and the party can move to the protection of the lower station with saloon and aft deck. The bespoke Belize Motoryacht line is inspired by classic timeless US down East lobster boat style, incorporating traditional with Australian practicality matched with latest modern boating standards. This showed with tender garage, and three lower deck interior with a full beam midships owners cabin all simulating what was shown with the 52 Sedan at the start of the year. Power for the Belize 52 Daybridge is twin Cummins 600 horsepower delivering a top speed of around 30 knots, 25 cruise.  A comfortable range 400 nautical miles is reached at 22 knots leaving a safety10 per cent reserve fuel margin.
