First Belize to be seen at 2012 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show
Published: Wednesday, 28 March 2012
Belize Motoryachts, the new Australian owned-and-designed luxury marque, will make its world boat show debut at the 2012 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show with the world release of the new Belize 52 Hardtop.
The luxury-positioned Belize 52 features spacious internal volume, especially the master stateroom which runs the full beam of the boat. The boat feels very large in scale: the handrails are big and ship-like, the bulwarks and the wide side decks make moving around the exterior of the yacht easy and comfortable.
Built at the Kha Shing shipyard in Taiwan, the limited-edition, semi-custom Belize 52 is created in two variations (single-level, sports yacht-style Hardtop, and split-level Day Bridge) with a limited production output of just nine boats in the next twelve months growing to a maximum output of 30 per year by 2015. Powered by twin Cummins Zeus 600hp diesel engines, it can reach a speed of 30 knots and a cruising range of approximately 400nm.
Belize Yachts were devised by Wes Moxey, who has recently been reinstated as CEO of Riviera Yachts. Belize will now be distributed through the existing network of Riviera dealers.
