Exterior Features

  • Fold down swimming platform

    Lower the hydraulically operated the optional swim swim platform to extend the level floor up to the waterline. Unrestricted views over the water, dock a tender, or take a refreshing morning swim.

  • Large sideways folding aft doors

    Extend your living space outdoors and onto the terrace. Open up the sideways folding aft doors between the inside living area and the outside terrace.

  • Open plan layout

    The single-level design is practical and creates a cooperative environment for everyone aboard, an atmosphere of togetherness. Steering, cooking, and relaxing take place in the same space.

  • Dinghy crane with electric winch

    Discretely hidden away, this crane allows for easy dinghy launching from the coachroof. Maximum ease of use and use of space while underway.

  • Low clearance

    Explore the inland waters or cruise the French canals. A low clearance of 3.40 ensures maximum accessibility to your favorite cruising grounds.

  • Wide side decks

    Move forward and aft safely in a quick and relaxed manner. Wide side decks on either side of the pilot house allow for easy movement. The welded handrails are both a safety feature and add to the overall beauty of the yacht.

  • Easy docking and mooring

    Ideal for when cruising short-handed or alone: directly behind the steering position are two doors which provide easy access to the decks and docks. Use of the centered bollard also allows for easy short-handed mooring.

  • Pilothouse with 360° view

    Integral to the Bestevaer design is the pilothouse with an all-around view. It enables navigation of the yacht in the coldest of areas from inside a warm and protected environment.

  • Watertight bulkheads

    Safety is paramount on the water. To avoid ingress of water, the yacht is fitted with 2 watertight bulkheads in aft and bow, equalling 3 watertight compartments.

  • Aluminium from A to Z

    The hull, pilot house, superstructure and rudder are fully constructed from aluminium. A material known for being strong, light weight and stiff, low maintenance, environmentally friendly, and incredibly good-looking.

  • Ample storage space

    With a deck hatch in the bow and two extra large hatches in the aft, there’s ample space for bikes, toys, tools and provisions. On both port and starboard sides you’ll find hatches specially designed for storing fenders, keeping decks clean and clear.
