|About La Bella Vita|
La Bella Vita, was custom built by two of the most experienced Mega Yachtsman in the world, John Staluppi and John Rosatti. They chose to build this super yacht, with a Dutch pedigree and it was constructed by the famous Neptunus ship yard in Holland. This yacht was built for the US market and then shipped to Florida where it was custom fitted by Millennium yachts at the Denison Ship Yard.
She is out fitted to the industry's highest standards by her owners. No expense was sparred in this build and re-fitting. This amazing yacht was painted and updated in 2014 and has continually been updated through 2018.
Walking up the dock towards La Bella Vita you immediately realize that she is a very special Super Yacht. Beautiful Hull shine and updated condition makes her very sleek and sexy! Spotless engine room. She looks like a much newer yacht that has been loved and expertly maintained by her owners.
Seller states that La Belle Vita is in turn key condition and ready to go anywhere anytime.
|Water Test Cruise|
My first voyage was a couple of weeks ago, while shooting the video on La Bella Vita that hopefully you have already watched.
My first impression of her is how solid she is built (Great Bones) and her magnificent quality throughout this Holland built Super Yacht. We were heading off shore and the Captain barely pushed the throttles forward and I was expecting the bow to pop up high to plane BUT she surprised us all with virtually no noticeable bow rise.
She went from 8 knots right to plane at 13.5 knots and felt extremely comfortable at that speed. WOW... planning at 13 knots, no engine sound... this experience felt very different than other yachts of her size.
The next moment after cruising at 13knots the Captain smiled and pushed harder on the controls and we were running at 25knots in 2 to 4 chop. Again, my impression was impressive... this yacht was cruising effortlessly in total silence at 25knots. No bow rise, excellent visibility and still in near silence. The MTU's were pushing this yacht without even trying, THANK YOU Holland Builders and MTU! You Got This build, RIGHT!
I kept looking at the GPS confirming our speeds, because this was a very unique water experience for me with over 10,000 hours on the water and a life time boating since 1961, when I started yachting with family.
Still very much amazed I looked around the salon and found 8 other people all smiling in dis-belief of how cool... this ride was going. We stayed at 25knots for 10 minutes or so...then!
And YES, the Captain inched the throttles up even further and we were easily moving along at 32knots and that is very fast for a 75' Super Yacht, the 1350hp MTU M2000's were beginning to start to sing their Turbo song of SPEED!
We never went to wide open throttle, but I will tell you that... the MAGIC was happening for me and our guests to be in a 75' Super Yacht running at these speeds so effortlessly in luxury and comfort. You have to try this experience because you will never forget it in your life time!
This water experience is burned into my lifetime of water memories! Not much makes me this excited in life. Thank you Neptunus and Millennium yachts for making me feel a little like " James Bond" for a day.

It can be said "James Bonds 007" Super Yachts, are very, very sexy.
Millennium Super Yachts began in the 80's with a triad of very powerful Megayachts whose names conjure the essence of opulence and responsive speed- "Octopussy", "Moonraker" and "Thunderball". They were some of the fastest super yachts in the world. Millennium yachts were designed by John Staluppi, as were the rest of the James Bond 007 super yachts born in Holland. "La Belle Vita" wasn't a 007 Bond Super Yacht in the Bond movies but all the love, quality and speed went into building this very special Millennium Super Yacht in Holland.
