Yes, this is a Formosa 51 Ketch. Yes, her hull was built in 1977. And YES, you really do need to consider this yacht if you are looking for a blue water cruiser with character, strength and the ability to take care of you at the dock or at anchor halfway around the world.


As you will see, over the years, the very knowledgeable owner has made sure that virtually every component, system and surface on this yacht, has been replaced, upgraded or improved. Bella still retains many of the elements that reflect her traditional beauty such as the original carved cabin doors forward; however, unlike many of the Formosa's from this era, this yacht is Ready-To-Go.
