Belize 54 Daybridge

Belize – 54’ Daybridge

 

Having sung the praises of the completeness of the one-level Belize Sedan, it may seem almost contradictory to introduce a Daybridge sister. But experience again informs the Belize designers of a demand that’s just as enthusiastic for this kind of variant.

Flybridge lovers aren’t necessarily an age group. Nor a psych-socio-graphic. They simply have different needs.

They may be more traditional boaters keen to embrace the outdoors and the weather in all its moods. They will relish the wind-in-the-hair and sun-on-the-face experience that a Flyybridge affords.

They could just as easily be parents, or grandparents, who welcome an extension to the main entertaining area, or a separate fun space for children.

And those living in higher latitudes, where every warm moment of a very short season is seized upon, will find it an ideal way to make the most of it.

Both boats’ main decks are identical as far as saloon, galley and accommodation areas.

On the Daybridge, though, an elegantly curving deep-tread staircase leads up from the cockpit.

Every bit as sociable as the main saloon, the Daybridge area has a large L-shaped lounge and hi-lo table that can drop to create a second sun pad. Opposite is a wet bar with sink and fridge. And a second station acts as a day helm and offers the essential navigation aids.

Obviously a bimini can be added, but full clears are probably unnecessary. When weather becomes too hot, or cold, the Daybridge cover can be snapped on, the stair-ladder hatch closed, and a retreat made to the cosy protection of the lower saloon and main helm.
