Boat Review - Belzona 40CC

Boat Review - Belzona 40CC
The Belzona 40CC sports an individuality easily recognizable by her rakish profile and forward angled Pacific styled windshield.



Belzona Marine took an unconventional approach to the design table while conceiving the layout for their new 40CC. Based on the concept that luxurious interiors sell boats at boat shows but are rarely enjoyed to their fullest potential once you bring the boats to water, the new Belzona 40CC begs the question, “why not bring these amenities out into the open air?” Built for the boater who enjoys the “Total Boating Lifestyle” and views the boat as more than just a vessel to carry you to the fishing or diving location.

The 40CC proves to be the perfect platform to entertain friends and family whether on a sunset or moonlight cruise, dinner or cocktail party at the dock, or relaxing day anchored in a quiet cove with a dozen of your closest friends. A large wraparound forward sofa style seat faces aft to a pair of high backed bucket seats facing forward at the foot of a tandem elevated Sun Lounge with reclining backrests. This seating arrangement invites a large social gathering into the sunlight and fresh air. Should you require a break from the sun's rays a move to the helm area provides additional seating for six around an L-shaped lounge seat facing the helm seat all under cover of an oversized shade top. The helm area may also be enclosed with isinglass curtains and cooled via the cabin air conditioning.

Understanding the need for the capability to overnight occasionally on board, Belzona didn't completely move the party outdoors. The interior cabin features 6 feet 7 inches of headroom and a forward V-berth large enough for a couple to sleep on that also converts to a dining area by the addition of a removable table. A fully enclosed head is also roomy enough to accommodate a separate glass enclosed shower. A small refrigerator and microwave complete the space and easily meet the needs of the occasional overnight stay.

Despite the user friendliness for social engagements, this boat is still extremely capable of wide open sports endeavors as well. A traditional style fishing cockpit is roomy enough and comfortable to work a big game spread behind. Two large fish boxes and a corner transom located live well are standard equipment. The cockpit can be configured with a more serious fishing layout by adding aft facing Mezzanine seating in favor of an open air Galley as well as substituting a 60-gallon transom live well for the rear folding bench seat. Dive fans will appreciate Belzona's trademark sliding cockpit dive door which slides aft on a trolley system track rather than opening inboard or outboard. This clever design not only offers a larger opening for water entry, it also provides an easy passageway for dockside boarding. Belzona Marine has carved out a nice position in the boating market for itself with a very unique design that blends a comfortable boating experience and outdoor sports with its own signature style.
