Bestevaer 36

Bestevaer 36

"Our new Bestevaer 36 was custom-built for naval architect Gerry Dykstra. It's our most compact, most sustainable, most agile go-anywhere yacht for go-anywhere people." – KM Yachtbuilders

The European Yacht of the Year 2024 nominated Bestevaer 36 yacht, designed for the legendary sailor and original architect of the Bestevaer series, Gerard Dijkstra, is tailored for exploration in shallow waters—a realm untouched by his earlier voyages. With a vision to moor in smaller marinas and the ability to gracefully navigate the stunning Wadden Sea, Gerard aspired for a yacht capable of drying out.
