CARMELLA is a yacht built to go places - in absolute comfort, style and with a good turn of speed. She was engineered to live away from the docks with no generator running – all systems except air conditioning run from the DC batteries so she’s a silent ship. For high latitude cruising, the pilothouse controls and heating systems are well-conceived. In the tropics, with an abundance of opening hatches, hull ports and skylight, the natural ventilation is excellent – and backed up by powerful air conditioning. She is simple to handle under sail, with a seakindly motion and great performance. She is a proper yacht in all respects.
