1988 Belliure Ron Holland 12.5
A unique combination of lovely cruising amenities and excellent performance at a very affordable price. All halyards and sheets lead aft to oversized self-tailing winches, the jib is roller furling, the cockpit is large and comfortable; characteristics which allow her to be easily sailed by a couple or single-handed. At the same time the hull, foils and rig by Ron Holland with refinements by Jim Taylor - both noted for their race boat designs - produce fast and powerful yacht which can make you the star of your local PHRF fleet. Above all else, she is gorgeous both at the dock and under sail.

Note: A feature that makes Big Blue an exceptional boat for single-handing and couples is her nke Autopilot and its MOB function. The Pilot Remote Control is synchronized with the autopilot; it can, therefore, recognize when the person wearing the remote has gone overboard (the pilot instantly loses the signal from the remote when the remote is submerged or is at a preset distance from the computer). The loss of signal sets off an MOB alarm which turns the boat head to wind and HOLDs it there until (a) the skipper climbs back aboard and disengages the MOB function or (b) the remaining crew reads the nke displays for distance and bearing to the MOB and makes a successful retrieval. There are also programmable EPIRB and distress signal functions.
The NKE system installed is the same system found on boats like those in the Vendee Globe and cost in excess of $50K.
