BLISS 2 had her first successful sea trials and satisfied the naval architects from beiderbeck designs, her suppliers, and people who were involved the project. BLISS 2 has a very elegant design which makes her light-flooded. An eye-catcher is a contrast between the metallic white colored hull and her dark windows under her rail. The windows don’t just “look good”, they provide an all-around vision without a pilot house.

Thanks to the lightweight construction of glass fiber and carbon fiber (including carbon rig), the yacht reacts promptly when the wind blows moderately in the 300 m² sail area.

Captain Henk van der Vaart comments:

“The ship is truly unique. There is probably no other with merit on details.”
