Classic lines and a large gaff rig make Ciao Bella a truly beautiful daysailer that is sure to turn the heads of even the most "salty sailors" in the harbor. With her large sail area and broad hull she will clip across the water with ease and deliver a thrill to even the most seasoned of sailors, yet with her simple single sheet rig, lazy jacks, and jiffy reef system she is simplistic enough for single handed sailing and novices alike.
For those long weekend cruises she is equipped with a Garmin 431s chartplotter and sounder as well as a Raymarine ST1000 Plus Tiller Pilot, allowing you to set your course and relax while she briskly clips along towards your destination, and when you're tired of beating into the wind her 2011 Nissan 9.8 hp outboard can get you home in a hurry. Her spacious ash trimmed cabin is equally well appointed with new cabin cushions, double berths, v-berth, teak and and holly sole, 12V receptacles, and unique touches such as her bronze cabin lights and classic cat's eye ports. She also has plenty of storage for your crew's gear with seven under berth lockers and two net hammocks! Ciao Bella is spacious enough to allow you to entertain up to eight adults while maintaining the ease and simplicity of a daysailor.
This Menger Catboat 19 is a classic design with unique touches and modern equipment throughout. To truly understand the beauty that is Ciao Bella you must see her in person as photos simply cannot capture the level of detail and meticulous maintenance that has been put into her!
