BRIEF HISTORY OF VESSEL
This Bellamy 90 comes with a diversity of opportunities unlike other vessels in her class. Her equipment, living square footage and floor plan are unheard of in vessels of her size. The most important aspect of a vessel, the hull, has been updated to a new state recently and the mechanics are all in good working order.
Between 1978 and 1979, she voyaged from the Bahamas to Montego Bay and then on through the Panama Canal. The Cousteau family was reported to have used this vessel off the coast of Catalina Island to test underwater communications gear while their boat was in dry dock in Europe.
In 1983, she began a 29-year tenure as an ocean learning vessel that was quite extraordinary. The vessel was used to provide ocean science experiences to an estimated 100,000 youth who were given the opportunity to conduct science experiments along the California coast and in waters beyond Catalina Island.
The interior improvements included updating several of the interior rooms from bunks to staterooms which changed the vessel from a strictly commercial use vessel to a private/commercial vessel which increased the overall value of the boat.
She is a ship that can be used for commercial or private accommodations purposes. This particular type of “massive framed build” is built to last much longer than your average wooden boat, and she is built out of the best materials to ensure strength and a long lifespan. The hull improvements represent a “major refit and refurbishment to good industry standards” of the entire hull below the waterline and the entire hull above the waterline of the vessel. This was a major feat, which raised the value of the vessel dramatically. All the wood below the water line was in great condition. This fact reinforced how well built the vessel is. Even the Coast Guard said, “She’s built like a tank.”
