Range, Speeds and Fuel consumption (reported):
Under the yachts current ownership and roughly 13,000 miles of cruising the main engines were typically operated between 1500 and 1650 rpm. Below are performance and fuel consumption estimates, actual speed and consumption will vary depending on loads, speed, weather, sea conditions and other variables. This data is intended only as a general reference: R.P.M. G.P.H. Speed Knots 1800 31 12 1700 25 11.5 1600 18 11 1550 16 10.5 1500 15 10 1400 12 9 1300 9 8.5 1200 7 8
Generator fuel consumption is estimated at approximately 1 gallon per hour average (accounted for in the above reference table) when operating between the 33 kW and 20 kW units. Consumption is of course directly related to the electrical loading. Range is conservatively 5500 nautical miles and that can be greatly extended with slower speed and or single engine operation. The yacht was designed and constructed with serious world wide cruising ability.
Construction:(intended only as a brief overview)
Hull exterior is white with a white deck house and superstructure. Tinted tempered glass windows throughout. Reported that the yacht was constructed Lloyds Maltese Cross 100 A1 SSC Yacht G6.

Double bottom tanks: fuel oil, fresh water, black water, grey water, lube and waste oil and sludge. Bilge keels are closed box construction of 8mm plate. 2 balanced streamlined rudders 850 x 1000mm in size with hole to facilitate shaft removal. Superstructure, "Triclad" welded between the steel deck and aluminum house. Aluminum materials are seawater resistant aluminum alloy.

Additionally acoustic foam and rockwool were used in the bulkheads. In general the builder worked to achieve at 1500 cruise rpm dB(A) readings in the 60 to 62 range.
"La Belle Yvette" is the culmination of two and a half years of engineering and construction creating the ultimate world cruising yacht. Every effort was made to make her exceedingly quiet, comfortable, reliable and versatile. No expense was spared outfitting from the Malcolm Cole stainless steel oval and round hardware to the custom DMP electronics and monitoring systems. Her reported maiden voyage was trans-Atlantic with an average sea state 8' to 15' seas and 30 knot winds with no significant problems or failures. The yacht has continued to prove herself. 2004 and 2005 she cruised in excess of 13,000 miles in a variety of weather conditions with comfort and reliance from the Great Lakes, U.S. East Coast, Bahamas and Caribbean. Many times it is the little things that really add up to make something outstanding and "Las Belle Yvette"really needs to be carefully viewed to fully appreciate here numerous attributes. For example the air conditioning outlets are part of the ceiling soffets to not only hide them, but provide an even distribution of air. The cabinetry is bull nosed, wood grains and color match, subtle accents throughout and stunning custom polished stainless steel hardware. This yachts quality is a significantly above the average yacht of this size and characteristic. It is suggested that interested parties should first view the other "expedition" style yachts so as to be more fully able to appreciate the attributes "La Belle Yvette" offers. While similar VriPack/Dick Boon design have been built by yards other than Kuipers those yachts typically were not constructed to the extraordinary standards that were incorporated into this yacht.
