Bestevear aluminium sailing yacht, who knows this type of sailing yacht?

Hi there,

I'm considering to buy a new boat. I saw the Bestevear on the website of KM Yachtbuilders, does someone know this type of boat?

Re: Bestevear aluminium sailing yacht, who knows this type of sailing yacht?

If I had the money I would build a 53ST with a lifting keel. The II dystra built for himself seems to be nearly perfect. I had great interest in these boats. A definite step up from Garcias and Boreals in fit and finish but unfortunately also in cost.
If you get one please,please take me sailing.

Gobsmackingly beautiful things and if I could I probably would. To be honest though, 50' is overly large for my needs and/or wants and they are hellishly expensive.

Th

When I get one, I will let you know! ;p

I also think that the boats are amazing and near to perfect, but that's just on the outside unfortunately. Do you know something about the other specifications as well? Like the electrical systems they use for example?

Is a 45ST also too large for you? I heard that they are going to build Beastvear and Bestewind (polyester) in 45ST as well. Do you have a sailing yacht at the moment?

They are great boats. I am seriously looking at one for my next yacht. I visited factory recently so I am happy to answer any questions.

Theses are custom yachts. They will do anything you like (as long as it technically feasible).

Really? Where are you from? Can you tell me something about the yard? Are you going for a new ship or second hand one?
