About BELLINE II

Operating in the Caribbean

Sailing on Catamaran Belline II is like a magic carpet ride...

"On a cloud of sound

Any place it goes is right

Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here... " 

(Steppenwolf)

Her two hulls give space... speed and stability

Leave your stress, traffic jams, gotta-do’s, hafta-do’s and if you wish even your cell/mobile/wifi/keepintouch-devices behind and experience the richness of a lonely island, a quiet bay, a deserted beach on the fully equipped yacht.

Diving... off the yacht and into crystal clear, warm waters, blending into the world of stunning underwater playgrounds, showing the fish your big grin.

Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the most fascinating reefs still alive in the world today. Or even blow the first bubbles under water with your own PADI dive instructor.

During your sailing cruise you can enjoy all the on-board toys and top your vacation experience with our wakeboard, double seated kayak, fishing rods, aquanaut and much more activities tomake your sailing holidays a great success!

We love eating, so we love food - and we love to cook!  We are devoted to enjoying preparing new and different meals as well as the classic, traditional dishes. You will see how we can surprise you.

Belline II is perfect for a sailing vacation with both, friends and family. It’s Sun and Fun. Who knows, maybe soon you are sitting on deck with a cold drink in your hand! (and a big grin!)!!!

Crew Profile

Captain: Walter Wegmann (60)

Walter Wegmann – Captain and Chef

After April, 2017, Walter will be available for charters "on request", with Arlette and Jeremie taking the helm on a full-time basis.

Walter (59) is a licensed captain and a certified mechanic from Switzerland. He always has a helping hand for other boaters, too! They call him, “Walter-will-fix-it”.

During a very cold and rainy summer in Europe in 1987, Walter shruffed off the chill and flew off to the Dominican Republic for a dive vacation. He fell in love with the beauty of the Caribbean and stayed, opening one of the first European dive schools there. He never stopped dreaming from the perfect dive & relax vacation solution.

In 1991 he went to France and setting foot for the first time on Belline ll. After some customization work on the catamaran, Walter sailed through the challenging Bay of Biscay, off to the Mediterranean Sea, where he cruised along the French coast, the Spain’s Balearic Islands, Gibraltar and the Canary Islands. From there Walter and his crew set Belline’s sails for the crossing of the broad Atlantic. They had a wonderfully quiet and blissful crossing, and made landfall 21 days later in the British Virgin Islands. Walter and his crew thought they where the next Columbus in Paradise, when they found that the beer at Pusser’s was only a nickel! (What they didn’t know was, they had landed on a Thursday, when Pusser’s Pub was celebrating a special “nickel-night”).

Walter will be not only be your all-inclusive vacations charter yacht captain, but also your chef, as cooking is he’s true passion! Somebody even said: “You cook better than my mother!” That says everything, doesn’t it?

During all this time Walter has hosted over 1000 guests and made lots of new friends, many returning year after year to enjoy their "dream come true" Caribbean vacation.

1st Mate, co-captain, co-chef and dive instru: Arlette Wyss (24)

Arlette Wyss – 1st mate, co-captain, co-chef and dive instructor

Arlette Wyss (23) is also a native of Switzerland. She is a certified horse trainer, specializing in a variety of equestrian disciplines. She traveled extensively the past 5 years, crossing the USA by Greyhound bus from west to east, working in Idaho and Nevada as a real cowgirl, reprised that role in Brasil as a “gauchera” on a “facenda”, conquered the Amazon, hiked through Iceland, drove all over New Zealand, slept under the stars in the Sahara Desert and explored the west coast of Greenland on a sailing expedition.

But nothing can beat the beautiful Caribbean and the life on the water. She was only a small child when she was the first time sailing on Belline II with her family. That obviously impressed her enough to return again and again, and to dream of a life on Belline II. Arlette has a Swiss yachtmaster’s license, a 50ft RIB license and VHF certification. Also as a professional PADI dive instructor she’s always happy to take you on a dive around the most stunning reefs of the Caribbean or even blow the first bubbles with you! Arlette achieved a Swiss certification in professional bartending, presentation and service of drinks and snacks.

Her happy face earns her favour and empathy and a smile is always there, even in moments when it’s hectic, with quick thinking and action required. She is comfortable running all deck duties, and she keeps all water sports activities fully under control.

Arlette has been crewing on-and-off with the Belline ll on several charters in the past three years and she worked with Walter in the summer months in the boat yard.

Ship's Cat: Toeter

Captain Toeter

Ship's Cat, Entertainer, True Captain of Belline II having everything under control without lifting a paw.

Captain Toeter, a title well earned, came to us as a wee kitten who left Sint Maarten for a few weeks. Little did he know this was the start of his adventurous Columbus style life as a boat cat. At the time he was only a few weeks young, having a hard time climbing from the saloon to the cockpit being so small. We were asked to look after the cat for a few weeks but unfortunately his former owner never returned. All our ventures to find a new home for him on the island stranded. Thus Toeter became a part of the crew, quickly earning him the title of "Captain at ease", the sea was calling him. It may sound strange to have a cat onboard, funnily enough he feels right at home playing games with the crew and even daring to take a dip, the perfect boatcat.

His days are spent sleeping when the sun is out and coming to life to play games when it starts to cool down. In the mornings he enjoys a wamder around the boat with the crew, making sure all is in order. His greatest joy so far has been walking on a dog free beach, now he is learning to ride a kayak. Before we know it he will be ready to lead raiding parties, arg matey! If there are any concerns about allergies or something of the sort, please inform us, we have a place where he may vacation for a week. We are very happy to have Toeter as a valued member of the crew and he looks forward to Welcoming You.

Chef Mate: Jeremie Rouiax (32)

Joining Arlette on Belline 2 from April

Jeremie Rouaix: Chef Improv Extraordinaire, Passionate Kite Instructor & All round Good Vibe Ambassador turns love for food into a feast for all and gets you up and kiting with a confident grin. 32 years ago this compassionate, free spirit Jeremy was born in the mountains of Grenoble. With a powerful inner call for freedom, he left home at the age of 15 to start a nomadic life, a quest driven by his motto, a day not learned is a day not lived, guiding him in every venture that was to come. His passion for cooking lead him to the South of France, mastering the healthy Mediterranean style.

His nomadic drive had him travel around the world, working extensively in the hospitality and restaurant industry for 10 years, inspiring his inventive cooking even further. Perfecting his cuisine with an Italian chef in Australia, teaching him the finer trade secrets for recipes such as pizza dough. Applying and improvising the Thai kitchen, integrating Moroccan cuisine & developing his delicious trademark, and secret burger recipe, to creating an array of Tuna dishes. Can you say Yum? While on vacation he fell in love with Kite Surfing.

He is now installing himself on Belline and becoming a valued member of the crew. Most importantly nourishing all with a zest & love for creating recipes from fresh local produce that tantalizes many a taste bud and stomach. We dare you to pass on one of his creations!

We believe he will fit in perfectly on Belline 2.

We will never cherish our time with you both aboard the Belline II and hope that you two will enjoy some of our memories.
 There will also be those memories that will remain a little soggy. From the many shots aboard the drunken Willie T's, to the naked in 3.2 painkillers at Soggy Dollar bar. We cannot thank you enough. May our paths cross again, either in in the Caribbean islands or in Rhode Island!

Late Summer, 2016 guests on Belline said:

Dear Arlette and Walti, 

Thank you for the great vacation. We all had the best experience of our life. The boat was perfect for our family. We liked the layout of the boat. It was open and spacious and easy to get around. From our first meal to our last meal everything was amazing. The BBQ on the beach was very special. It was great to go were no one was around. We loved swimming around in the ocean and had fun with the inner-tube and aquanaut. The scuba diving was amazing and we got to see so many cool fish and coral, especially the lion fish. There was so much to see on shore as well, our favorite spots including Union Island and mainland Grenada. We were surprised with the amount of rain around Grenada and the Grenadines but we loved the warm wet weather. Some of our favorite memories were snorkeling in the Tobago cays with the turtels, riding the tube and eating dinner on Union Island. 
Again, the vacation was amazing and you two were outstanding hosts.

May, 2016 guests on Belline said:

Nach einer erlebnisreichen Anreise sind wir in Guadeloupe glücklich gelandet. Wir wurden von Walti mit einem breiten Lachen von herzen erwartet. Ein langer und abwechslungsreicher Segelturn von Guadeloupe bis Grenada nimmt heute leider seinen Abschluss. 
IN den drei Wochen war alles dabei: Hohe Wellen, Wind mit bis zu 36 knoten, Seekrankheit mit => Kotzen auf Back und Steuerbord, ging es vorwärts mit gehissten Segeln bis die Genua zerriss und Walti mich auf den Masten hissen lies. Auf Komando von Arlette lies ich die besgte Leine los und war damit sofort arbeitslos. Marcello und Walti mussten es dann regeln damit wir weiter konnten segeln. Kulinarisch wurden wir mit Menüs aus allen Ländern verwöhnt. Wein, Drinks und Rum genossen wir nur im Mass und hatten trozdem immer unseren Spass!!
Die Reise ist zu Ende, wir genossen es auf der Belline II von Anfang bis zu Ende. 
Herzlichen dank an das ganze Team!

An absolutly incredible trip filled with so much adventure and laughter. It's hard to beat a weeks worth of pricate beaches, amazing food and a wonderful crew! ARlette and Walter gave us a blissful week in paradise, we could not have asked for a better crew. Every place we went to became over favorite place, it's too hard to choose just one place. I don't think any vacation after this will be as amazing as this. It was so easy to just fall into beat life it will be hard to go back to our old life. 
We wish you all safe travels and great weather on Belline II.

Does anyone want some shrimp? We got spicy shrimp, sweet shrimp, sour shrimp, bitter shrimp, peanut butter shrim, pineapple shrimp, all kinds of shrimp you can imagine! Just we got no Tomatoes because tomatoes aren't healty! We also got Mexican, Italian, sushi, Hambuger. candy, chips cookies...
allt the food you can imagine! we don't make nothing with tomatoes though. No ketchup, no tomato sauce. But we got pesto and alfredo sauce! My shrimp are the freshest shrimp you can get bc they come from the ocean! What i do to find my shrimp is simply snorkel for them and put them in my shrimp bucket! Shrimp is my speciality. However, that's not the only seafood I sell. I also got clams, oysters, crab, lobster and every fish that lives in the ocean... Just NO TOMATOES!

But in the end, everything's just a shrimp. You're a shrimp, I'm a shrimp, everyone's a Shrimp! Belline II is even a shrimp.
 We want to sell as much shrimp as we can, so we mad a song and a dance move.

" Now watch me shrimp, now watch me shrimp shrimp. "Now watch me shrimp shrimp, now watch e shrimp shrimp.
Now i'll be right over with your shrimp. That was the sweet shrimp you said you wanted? Shine a light and ill come find you on my innertube and bucket of delicius shrimp"

Walti + Arlette



When we first set sail, you told me this was not a cruise but adventure. The word "adventure" does describe our experience. While i am thinking of our incredible voyage, I am feeling tears of happyness. The Belline II has became a home for us, and the crew will always be part of our family.
This week we have expanded so much, and I have seen that less is really more. It is that simple. Things that have made this the absolut best. I have seen my teenager daughters have been kids again. The family has growen together. 
I cannot thank you both enough! 
you truly are the Best!
