This special offering is likely the most expensive yacht ever built by Helsen Hunter, and the owner just reduced the price! She cost over $700,000 to build, and her name is Belle Ile!

The story of the Helsen Signature 470 is such; Helsen turned the stock 46-foot Hunter into an elegant high end cruising yacht at Sailor's Wharf, in his boatyard on Salt Creek in St. Petersburg. One of the most dramatic changes is in the hull itself. Helsen cut off the transom of the production boat and designed a new sugarscoop that adds 1.5-feet to the overall waterline, giving the boat better performance and an updated look. The extended transom also provides a platform for diving and swimming. The trailing edge of the keel is faired for good upwind performance. Other upgrades include a stainless steel and vinyl rub rail, an Awlgrip paint system in custom colors, a 22-karat gold leaf sheer stripe, Harken hardware, electric halyard winch and a steel cockpit arch. Helsen worked with Mark Pooch of Doyle Sails in Clearwater to produce a performance sail package and added 100 square feet to the sail plan. The upgraded interior is elegant ash and teak with a teak and holly sole. The interior features an entertainment system that includes multiple flat-screen televisions. Stainless steel hatches and ports have custom shades that convert to screens. The master stateroom berth has a thick custom mattress made in California specifically for the yacht. Corian custom counters and faucets with gold accents were added. The Signature 470 has 167 upgrades from the standard Hunter 46.

Belle Ile is Helsen's masterpiece with a rich dark forest green Awlgripped hull. The three stateroom two bath layout provides perfect accommodations for two couples with some grandkids included. She is designed to be comfortable and pleasing in every aspect with the interior design completed by a professional (expensive) interior designer choosing the window treatments, upholstery, carpets, artwork, brass lighting, Corian, and soft high quality coverings all professionally implemented. The intention of total comfort continues right into the cockpit that is perfect for entertaining with seating for about ten people with a walk through transom, swim platform, and a large cockpit table and many drink holders. The canvas dodger and bimini provide shade and of course there are cockpit cushions.

There is no shortage of amenities to rival any home with the ice maker, flat screens TVs , air conditioning and a large 6kw Northern Lights Genset with less than 600 hours on it to run everything. 

This vessel is complete with everything you need to start enjoying sailing! The electronics, navigation and communications systems are all current with Raymarine color radar/plotter with displays at the helm and at the nav. There is nothing else you need to buy, nothing to upgrade, just write one check and start sailing right here in the Chesapeake. Cruise down to Florida and see how life looks from the water side. You won't miss home, that is safe to say.


Give us a call. You really must see this vessel to appreciate the opportunity!
