2000 Little Harbor 40

Annapolis, Maryland


Georgia Bel is, and always was, one of the very nicest Little Harbor 40 WhisperJets built. Her life began at the Little Harbor facility in Portsmouth.

With brand new Hinckley Yacht Services awl grip paint and fresh varnish, completed late August 2021, she shines as few others do. Additionally her jet service has just been freshly completed.

She has been lightly used in Virginia since 2009 and has been stored covered in a building in a lift system. She does not show the typical exposure one would expect. Her interior soft goods look nearly new.

Previous to 2009 she lived in fresh water, in the Great Lakes and was lightly used there.

She needs your food, beverages and a quest for adventure.

She sleeps four below, has many upgrades such as the private cabin plan including the couch option forward, two big air conditioning systems, upgraded 420hp Yanmars, big generator, transom door option, couch option, newer JetStick System by Rolls Royce.

Few of the WhisperJets have similar features as Georgia Bel.

She is ready for another season of enjoyment. SO, create great boating memories with your family. But don't wait long as a yacht with these upgrades and in this condition will not last on today's hot market.
