As soon as you step inside âBe Happy" you know you have stepped into something unique and special. The quality, design and colors have an immediate effect on you (you almost expect 007 to step forward and introduce himself). The feeling inside is cheerful and light. As you take two steps down to enter the cabin you find the galley area is to port and the head is to starboard. There is a large salon with two long settees, a fold down table and a large private V-berth forward. The galley is equipped with a two burner vitro-ceramic cook top, a stainless steel sink with cold and hot running water and a stainless steel refrigerator/freezer. The sink and stove top disappear under a, color matched, table top for a nice clean finish. The head and sink are beautifully molded and in excellent shape. The walls and ceiling are mirrored to give it an expanded feeling. The head has a vacu-flush system with a 25 gal holding tank. The salon is large for a boat of this type and has plenty of head room. There are two sofas port and starboard facing each other and an ingeniously designed fold out table that folds out of the forward suite door! The previously mentioned door opens up into the forward birth. The V birth is large and has plenty of stowage room. Under the V birth there is access to the fresh water tank and a large covered storage area. On the bulkhead to port as you step inside there is an electrical panel as well as a Standard Horizon Spectrum + VHF radio and a JVC CD am/fm stereo. On the electrical panel there are temperatures read outs for both refrigerators (we don't want our drinks to get warm!).

Physically, âBe Happy" is a real head turner. There are two custom molded helm seats forward (one for the captain and one for the navigator) and a large bench seat aft. Behind the captain's chair to starboard is the out side stainless steel refrigerator/freezer and behind the navigator to port there is storage. Both to port and starboard, on the gunnels behind the two seats, are doors that not only give you access to storage, but, transform into two tables for the passengers on the aft bench seat. There are two hatches in the sole of the boat for access to the fuel tanks and storage. Behind the aft seat is a large tanning pad and behind that there's the swim platform with swim ladder and hot and cold shower. âBe Happy" comes with both a forward bimini top and an aft bimini top plus full sides and forward ensign glass enclosures plus a full cover for the sun pad area so that you can lay on the pad and be fully enclosed. The vessel has stainless steel bow rail and a stainless steel Danforth type anchor. There is a Stainless steel anchor with a Lewmar windlass and 300 feet of chain.

âBe Happy" comes equipped with a Garmin 2006 GPS/color plotter and depth finder; a Standard Horizon Eclipse+ VHF stereo and a JVC CD am/fm stereo

It is exhilarating to run and handles just like any other high performance Italian medium. Tullio built this vessel with Caterpillars 3208TA diesels, each pushing 375 horses but what's most impressive is the straight inline surface props and rudder system for greater efficiency and superior handling. It is reported that it burns only 22 gallons per hour at cruise! The engine room is exceptionally clean for an eighty nine and there is absolutely no smells in the bilge or the cabin. It has two fuel tanks, a stainless steel hot water heater, and two banks of dual batteries each side for a total of four 4D batteries, one bank for the engines and one for the house. There are two smart battery chargers. These battery chargers are connected separately to each of the two banks and are of the smart type so even though the batteries are installed in series it can sense the voltage on each of the two batteries and charge each particular battery as needed. âBe Happy is also equipped with a NextGen 4KW generator w/ soundbox as well as 50amp shore power and a PolarBay 12,000 BTU reverse cycle A/C-Heat system.

âBe Happy" is a very well built vessel and meticulously maintained with very low usage. It is built in the classic Italian tradition and grows even more beautiful with age. If you want to see and be seen then this is the boat for you. Whether having fun at a poker run or cruising the keys or the islands it would be hard to travel in this luxury for this amount of money.
