Setting off for long-term blue water cruising in extreme environments, far from the busiest routes? This aluminium Bestevaer 49ST gives you all you need to carry out your dream. Quality has been chosen for everything on board including Andersen winches, Reckman furlers, Quantum sails, Selden Carbon fibre mast and boom with Rod Rigging, watertight bulkheads for extra safety, and much more. She is a fast and modern aluminium sailing yacht, designed by Dykstra Naval Architects. The Bestevaer 49ST is the little sister of the Bestevaer 53 which designer Gerard Dykstra built for his private use. Her interior layout and finish reflect the eye for detail and commitment to quality that are the architect's and the builders' hallmarks. The pilothouse is a distinctive feature and contains the nav station and a seating arrangement with an uninterrupted view of the surroundings. This is ideal for watchkeeping on long passages, but also very pleasant when moored or at anchor. Katharos is ready to go for a new trip with his new owners.
