The Bestevaer semi-custom line is not a custom yacht, like we usually built, but more a series-yacht. Certain items are fixed, such as dimensions of the yacht, position of the bulkheads, systems on board and the general lay outs.
Our philosophy is that it is a safe and comfortable yacht from aluminum, with a pilot house. On deck there will be minimum paint work, no carbon mast and also no teak deck. We do have a swimming platform, deep and long cockpit, integrated aluminium bollards and two watertight bulkheads.
The pilot house offers protection from wind and rain, but also ensures views all around through the windows so the watchman can always keep an eye out. But it is also a favorite spot to sit with a glass of wine at anchor or in harbor.
“Designing any boats is a balancing act between many desirable characteristics and inevitable the end-product is a compromise, never perfect in all aspects. However, the Bestevaer comes close to my ideal. The past voyages proved this right.” – Gerard Dijkstra, naval architect and owner of Bestevaer2.
The Bestevaer 45 is the most popular model, but there is also a 49 and a 53 feet model available, for those looking for a larger yacht, as shown below.
