Following delivery in 2012, the family of 4 left for a world voyage aboard their Bestevaer 55 ‘Morning Haze’. They first sailed along Europe and North Africa and then crossed over to the Caribbean. The yacht arrived in Canada via the East Coast of the US. Together with friends, the owner sailed the yacht to Greenland and then returned to Europe via Iceland.
Greenland turned out to be a popular destination for Morning Haze. This is the third time she has been there. In 2017 Greenland was the departure point for the Northwest Passage, which was successfully crossed with a crew of 3. Read more about this in the enclosed article from the German Yacht magazine. In 2018, the yacht will descend gradually from Alaska along the coasts of Canada and the US to warmer areas.
The Morning Haze is the only Bestevaer 55 with a lift keel. This means that her interior layout is also different from that of the Albatross and the Pilgrim. Next to the keel box there is a bunk bed for the owner’s two young sons, with the owner’s cabin fore. Compared to the other 55 footers, the pilot house is also longer and does not have a traditional chart table. Under the pilot house there is a technical area on the starboard side and a guest cabin to port. The salon and galley are positioned opposite each other. A very fine addition – especially in cold areas – is the underfloor heating.
