·   Throughout:

    • Bella Via  has proven to be a dry boat.  This is not something to be taken for granted in a sailing yacht, many of which leak miserably.
    • Bedroom cabins are in cherry timber and vinyl wall finishes, to give an elegant, clean look. Each cabin has polished cherry privacy doors.  All cabins have extensive storage and cupboards.  Each cabin has dual reading lights at the head of each bed.
    • All storage cupboards have locking, cherry wood-veneer doors polished to perfection.
    • All over-head cupboards have smoked Plexiglas sliding doors.
    • All cabins and bathrooms are completely private with polished lockable doors.
    • Co-ordinated premium designer laminates, surface finishes and upholstery.
    • Select cherry joinery work including bulkheads, cabinetry & trim.

Extras and Modifications:

·   Aft Cabin – Design and Functionality - The aft cabin in the starboard hull of Bella     Via, unlike any other Seawind 1200 ever built, was customized by Seawind during     construction to meet the desires of this owner to have a truly owner’s version of the     Seawind 1200.  It features a king single bed with overhead opening hatch, a hanging     locker, 4 storage cupboards and an exceptionally spacious 3 shelf pantry with locking     wood-veneer doors.
Aft Cabin

·  4 additional Gebo hatches were installed during construction, two in the saloon, one in the galley and one in the office for a total of 12 opening hatches that make Bella Via an extremely well ventilated and airy home.


·   Made-to-measure Gebo hatch insect screens for each of the 12 opening ports.

·   A large ottoman (portable stool) provides additional seating at the saloon table and     complements the saloon settee.  This stool is elegantly finished in the same cherry     veneer of the saloon and upholstery of the settee.  The top of this stool easily lifts     off to provide additional storage space.
