They say the best time in a boat owners life is the day they purchase a boat and the day they sell it!
After hurricane Irma ripped our lives apart and took everything from us – our boat, our business and our home, saying goodbye to Restless Spirit was definitely NOT the best time in my life. It was heartbreaking. Nearly a year to the day it was heart wrenching having to watch my then 5 year old cry because her mum couldn’t save her. It was by far one of the worst days of my life.
Fast forward fifteen long months and I am thrilled to introduce you to our new boat, Belline II.
I started searching in earnest for another boat during the Summer months. I originally put an offer on a different boat, but after the survey she ended up not being the boat for us. Tony, my broker, and I had been looking at Belline since December 2017 when she came on the market, but I couldn’t afford the asking price.
Lo and behold circumstances change and due to an unfortunate series of events, I put an offer on her and it was accepted!
Belline II has only had two previous owners. She was purchased by Waltie (Walter Wegmann) in 1995 and was part of his family for the next 23 years. She was well loved and looked after by Waltie and together they chartered up and down the Caribbean entertaining over 3,000 guests. Captain Arlette and her family started sailing with Waltie when she was 5 years old. She fell in love with the experience and has been working alongside Waltie for the past 8 years.
She is now part of our Adventure Charters BVI family after Waltie unexpectedly passed away in October. He is deeply missed by his family and friends. I am forever grateful to Arlette for making this process as smooth as possible and for all her help
We will continue his legacy and will also offer weekly charters, alongside our day sails, for this season only.
