All the ships that we build in collaboration with Dykstra Naval Architects are launched under the name ‘Bestevaer’. The Bestevaers are exclusively built by KM Yachtbuilders.
The designs that have been built up to now vary in length (48 to 100 feet), lines and character. The Bestevaers either have a spoon bow (S), a clipper bow (C) or a straight bow (ST). The S Series consists of elegant performance yachts, while the C Series comprises robust yachts with plenty of space.
Gerard Dijkstra designed the Bestevaer 53 ST for his own use. KM Yachtbuilders are proud to be the elected builders of the architect’s own yacht. This is how the ST Series was born, which is the most popular of the three designs. A Dykstra design stands for a performance sailing yacht: fast and comfortable.
