Bell’ Aria has the ability to cruise in the low twenties without running the engines anywhere near max cruise RPM.  The twin QSB 330’s were chosen running conventional shafts with the propellers in tunnels.  The hull form has a generous chine beam, moderate deadrise with a fine entry developing into a straight buttock line in the aft sections.  The bottom is also slightly convex in section athwartship further enhancing the seakeeping performance.  This in our opinion is the most efficient hull form for this configuration which has been reinforced by the vessel’s performance.  The hull also incorporates our standard silent chine arrangement.  As there is no chine flat entering the water this eliminates chine slap at rest yet retains a dry soft ride while underway.  The hull is further assisted by one lifting strake per side positioned below the static waterline running through the transom.
