The designer of the Bestevaer 53ST yachts, Gerard Dykstra, founder of Dykstra Naval Architects, may well have largely retired from his architectural agency by now, but he is still very much involved in the development and design of sailing yachts. The ’Best Day Ever’ was inspired by his own private yacht for example, also an aluminium Bestevaer 53ST, built by K&M Yachtbuilders.

 

The Bestevaer 53ST ‘Best Day Ever’ will certainly stand out in any harbour, with its bare aluminium hull and green non-slip walking surfaces. It has a beautiful carbon mast on deck, and a rudder post in the cockpit.

The interior is light and open. White surfaces, mahogany cupboards and a 'beamed ceiling' all give it a classic modern look, while the coloured furnishings add a homely touch. The front cabin has two separate berths. Behind it, we find the bathroom with toilet. Opposite this, there is a separate berth. The kitchen is kitted with all possible conveniences of course and the saloon has a large table in the lounge area. The favourite spot on board is still the pilot house, thanks to its open views all round and contact with fellow sailors outdoors and below. There is another small bunk under the pilot house, the best place to nap while on watch. 

The Bestevaer 53ST is a fine example of how ocean and racing sailor Dykstra has designed and built his own ideal yacht; a deep and safe cockpit, a pilot house to shelter and stay dry when sailing in bad weather conditions, lines leading to the cockpit and a long water line and deep keel for excellent sailing performance.
