Bella Darya is a 34' sailboat designed and built by George Kurzman. Originally designed and launched in 2003 as a rigid-inflatable prototype with 32"-diameter airtubes on the sides, Bella Darya got wider decks and solid-cedar topsides in 2015. Her dimensions are: 34'-4" on deck, 9'-4" beam, 6'-0" draft (board down), 2'-0" draft (board up) 18hp Diesel, 400sq/ft sail. She has 3 bunks, a small galley, and a small head forward. She is cutter-rigged, with a boom-footed, roller-furling headsail. The main is fully-battened and controlled by running-backstays. She sits on a trailer when she is not in use.
