Bestevaer test sail - Yacht Designer on board!

This time on Distant Shores we're excited to be test sailing 2 different aluminum sailboats - both built by KM Yachts. We're thrilled we were able to sail with the yachts' designer legendary Gerard Dykstra.

First we get out on the brand new Bestevaer 45 aluminium sailboat - built by KM Yachts of Makkum in the Netherlands. She's so new she hasn't even flown all here sails yet and we get a change to see her large Code-0 as well as her lovely huge spinnaker.

Next we get out aboard the very first Bestevaer - the model 53 designed by her owner Gerard Dykstra and still going strong nearly 20 years old. Gerard is a famous Dutch designer who has been responsible for some of the most beautiful and innovative designs of the past 40 years. We have a windy day perfect for putting Bestevaer II through her paces.
