Size in a power boat has been redefined by Ray Beale when he designed this ultra-modern, top-performance launch. The spaciousness of this planing launch needs to be seen to be believed. Hull-form has been carefully drawn providing exceptional stability and easy planing with minimal fuss. Top speed of 30 knots can be expected depending on motor configuration and interior chosen. Single or twin motors are provided for. The volume allows features expected in motor boats of much greater size and the stock plans provide three different layouts to choose from.

Motoring in comfort and safety, and at anchor in style, you can enjoy fishing, relaxing or entertaining with confidence in this powerboat that is unmatched for overall features, functionality and innovation.

Shallow draft yachts are perfected by Beale Boats Ltd. The Beale 13.7m (45ft) “Longreach” provides amazing comfort, space, stability and performance yet floats in less than one metre with keel and rudder raised.

Perfect for cruising short-handed she can still accommodate a full crew in the 4 private cabins ( two double berths) with spacious, separate shower and toilet compartments and Master ensuite. The large entertaining area is still practical at sea and there is a galley worthy of the most discerning chef.

People often assume “Longreach” is a 60 ft boat because her volume and speed are so superior. Being a fast passage maker allows you to enjoy more time in port while the others are still at sea.

“Longreach” is also designed with special interlocked construction and foam to be a survival pod - even when holed below the waterline (where she will float with water up to bunktop level only) - allowing opportunity to remain on the vessel and repair damage.

With such looks, features, handling, practicality and style it is hard to imagine a more perfect yacht than the BEALE 13.7 Cruising yacht.

Cruising the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland, New Zealand 
(home of America’s Cup)
in a BEALE 12.8.

Powerful, handsome, spacious and very fast but gentle as a lamb - with this exciting yet comfortable boat Ray Beale proves yet again that you can “have it all” in a Beale designed yacht.

While most boats as fast and exciting as this modern sloop need a full yacht race crew and have no comforts below decks, these Beale Boat designed 42ft yachts have proved to be reliable, docile, family cruising yachts around NZ’s Hauraki Gulf - they have also done many comfortable ocean miles both racing and cruising.

BEALE 12.8m owner’s have won many racing series on Auckland (home of THE AMERICA’S CUP) ‘s competitive yacht racing courses.

The vessel’s interior has a versatile, open and spacious layout yet is totally practical and great to live aboard. The style of boat construction allows great flexibility to suit owners individual preferences.

Sailing in a Steel Beale is fast and easy.

Space, grace and pace you have only dreamed of are hallmarks of Beale Boats Ltd designs and they are very apparent in this desirable steel cruising yacht.

Cruising in a Steel Beale Boat has to be as close to perfect as possible. Naval architecture used to create these affordable, comfortable, ultimate ocean cruising boats pays great attention to detail and styling making you feel you are on a much larger ship. Sailing from port to port as quickly as possible makes for a safer voyage and Steel Beales perform as well as most timber hulled vessels.

Sound proofed and insulated the Steel Beale interior
is great for getting away from it all.

In a BEALE 10.5 m you can relax in the comfortable cabin or entertain in the roomy saloon. Like all Beale Boats the interior is able to be configured to suit your individual taste.

Contact Beale Boats Ltd to ensure you “steel” away in a Beale design.

Trailer Sailing is sheer exitement 
or total relaxation
– your choice in a real Beale Boat.

This fast, trailerable keel yacht is capable of out performing many larger boats yet it has all the necessary features for enjoyable cruising, unlike many high performance yachts. It can be built in any modern construction medium e.g. cedar strip plank sheathed in fibreglass or foam/fibreglass.

The rig is modern high aspect.

A feature of this type of yacht is the ability to high speed plane down wind, even on a beam reach, (making for very exciting sailing) while still having extremely good handling characteristics. Gennakers (set from pivoting, retractable prod) are more suitable than spinnakers for this type of sailing.

As with all Beale Boats the shape gives good heeled hull form and ease of control. The interior features comfortable berths, a compact galley and separate W.C. compartment allowing for enjoyable, fast cruising.

Auxillary power is from an outboard mounted on a pivoting bracket that brings the motor forward, when retrieved, to house in a cockpit floor compartment.

There is also a stock 9 metre version of this design adding to the extensive range of modern, trend setting Beale Boats Ltd yachts and launches.
