This Bestevaer 53 is a sistership of designer Gerard Dykstra's own private Bestevaer 53, and she is the only one with a lift keel! The combination of a straight bow with a fine entry, a long waterline and the weight of the ship concentrated amidship, ensure good performance at all points of sail and a comfortable movement in heavy seas.The yacht was mainly used for coast hopping in France and Great Britain, while occasionally makinglonger voyages to the Med. The last two years she has been in the North of the Netherlands, and one trip to the Med. The lift keel is an ideal attribute for sailing in shallow water. The 'Kite' is easily managed by a couple. Her interior lay out and styling give a homely feel to the yacht. Upgrades are possible of course.

The Bestevaer 56 Tranquilo is designed as a traditional pilot cutter with a typical classic appearance fitted out with a teak cladded deckhouse. Tranquilo has a teak caprail and a flush deck, giving the vessel the full classic look.
We place the vessel in the “Spirit of Tradition” class, being traditionally styled but showing powerful performance characteristics as a fine entry, shallow canoe body, lift keel, and balanced spade rudder.
The Bestevaer 56 Tranquilo is actually a ‘boat with a story’. The owner sails mainly solo and has twice sailed the Northwest Passage solo (in 2012 and 2017). And some people will recognise her from the picture where the ship is frozen in ice and snow in northern Canada.
Since 2006 she has logged more than 150,000 miles and has been in both polar circles. Although the painted hull and flush teak deck give the yacht a classic appearance, the Bestevaer 56 Tranquilo has a sleek and modern interior.
Bestevaer Tranquilo has been maintained regularly by both Orams Marine Auckland, New Zealand and KM Yachtbuilders, the Netherlands. Last refit was done in 2018-2019.
