Eye Candy - Bella Pita

I got to the boatyard today and about fell off the ladder when I looked across the yard to find this boat tied up to the bulkhead.

She is Bella Pita, a Tripp 75 built by Maxi Dolphin in Italy. The pictures DO NOT do it justice, I couldn't get far enough away to get it all in a single frame.

The entire boat is built from Carbon, even the flag pole.

Truly an impressive sailing yacht. She just arrived from the BVI last night.

Lovely Flatbread? Nice winches. Each one cost more than my car.

Could you, like, steal it? Just for a little while?

NICE!!!!!!!
I look at boats like that and think, "I could not afford the rigging."
Than I say to myself, "Looks good, but probably needs a crew of at least ten to sail her."

These guys do get very excited around winches. They often confuse them with wenches!
Carbon fiber winches, a crew of ten to sail: eh? I like the old shoes that I own. I can also afford them.

I think there were 3 on board for the trip from BVI to the Chesapeake. I mean, it's all push button sail handling - even the upper shroud is tensioned hydraulically!

Winches that cost more than my car and a carbon rig that probably cost more than my house.

It IS very sexy....if completely unatainable for all but a very very select few.

It's ironic, this multi-million $$ sailboat tied up in a 'working' yard (not a marina). You don't see this everyday.

The owner can afford new lifelines out of pocket change, and the crew doesn't care...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
