Bestevaer 45ST PURE

(Please note we are not exhibiting a yacht at this show!)

KM Yachtbuilders latest development is the Bestevaer 45ST PURE.

Normally, KMY yachts are fully custom-built with every detail according to the owner's wishes. The PURE will be more of a production yacht and aspects such as dimensions, deck plan, the hull, layout and styling are fixed. The owner still has influence over the final version, but not as much as for a custom-built yacht. The Pure philosophy is that it must remain a safe, seagoing and comfortable yacht, just like its custom-built siblings, but in a pared down version, without for example 3 toilet compartments, air conditioners, dishwashers or an expensive teak deck. The name really says it all…..

Bestewind 50

(Please note we are not exhibiting a yacht at this show!)

The Bestewind 50 (50 feet, 14,96 meter) is a real eye-catcher with robust, classical lines, a straight bow, an overhanging transom and a pilothouse.

A fast and serious sailing yacht of a timeless and classical appearance, at an attractive price. She is designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and based on the Bestevaer II, Gerard Dykstra his own aluminium custom-built sailing yacht.

The transom has a collapsible swimming platform and a gate which offers an easy way through to the cockpit. As all halyards are led aft from the mast, the deck remains uncluttered and neatly arranged. The Bestewind 50 is easily sailed by a couple.

The interior layout and finish reflect the eye for detail and commitment to quality that are the architect's and the builders' hallmarks. The space below deck is bright and roomy, with a combination of mahogany and off-white and an appealing traditional look. 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.

The Bestewind 50 conforms to the highest quality requirements and belongs to the top-end market of series-built yachts. Naturally, she is built under the according quality certification, such as CE category A.

Stadtship 56

(Please note we are not exhibiting a yacht at this show!)

An aluminium sailing yacht with a length over 17 metres and a draught of 80 centimetres? Not a problem for KM Yachtbuilders! Thanks to a lift keel (0.80 – 3.15m), two retractable rudders and a 15 mm aluminium bottom, this Stadtship 56 can safely rest on mud flats, navigate shallow coastal waters and cross oceans. This yacht is easy to sail with a two-man crew. The long water line and water ballast create a comfortable and fast sailing yacht.

This is the second Stadtship 56 built by the shipyard in Makkum. The first Stadtship 56, 'Oester',was completed in 2005 and served as the inspiration for the owners of the 'Merrimac'.
'Merrimac' is outwardly the same as 'Oester'. The unpainted hull makes the sleek aluminium clearly visible. The deck is painted Oyster white with anti-slip on the walking areas. The carbon mast originates from Hall Spars with a Park Avenue boom made by K&M. The foresail is bent onto a "self tacking" Hoyt boom.
Safety and functionality are of the utmost importance to the owners. That is expressed in the 90 cm sea railing with fixed stainless steel tubes rather than the customary steel wire. The entire superstructure is framed by a rail onto which the lifeline can be clipped, which makes it unnecessary to disconnect when moving to the foredeck. The cockpit and the wheelhouse are fitted with plenty of handles. The cockpit and its coaming are lined with teak. A special feature is that the vessel has a tiller made of aluminium and teak, and the protruding trim tabs ensure that she steers like a 37 footer. The stern is open and there is sufficient room on the swimming platform for a dinghy. Six solar panels and the antennas are placed on a specifically designed rack aft. The 2500 kg water ballast reduces the gradient by 9 degrees, providing one knot of extra speed.

- repair holes/dents in the hull
- new teak decks
- new paint work
- new interior
