Bestevaer 36 S/Y Overview

The Bestevaer 36, built by KM Yachtbuilders in Makkum, Netherlands, is an aluminum yacht designed for rugged, go-anywhere sailing. The boat was created for Jerry Dykstra, a legendary racing sailor and designer, who wanted a smaller vessel to navigate the wetlands of the Netherlands. The Bestevaer series is known for its durability and sustainability, making the 36 a notable addition to the lineup.

Technical Specifications and Design

The Bestevaer 36 is constructed primarily from recycled aluminum, with over 60% of the material being recycled. This construction not only emphasizes the boat's eco-friendly focus but also ensures durability and longevity. The yacht features a centerboard keel and a kick-up rudder, allowing it to dry out easily. Its bare aluminum exterior, sandblasted for a non-skid effect, is typical for Bestevaer yachts. The boat’s sails are made from recycled polyester by Elvstrom and include a Fathead Square top main with running backstays and a Jib-O-Boom stay sail option.

Cockpit and Deck Features

The cockpit of the Bestevaer 36 is deep and protected, designed for high-latitude sailing. It includes a massive starboard locker for ample storage, housing the Oceanvolt electric drive and Fischer Panda generator. The helm area features a versatile running board that doubles as a gang plank and a helm seat that slides back and forth. The transom includes a swim platform with steps that lower for easy access to the water and life raft.

Interior and Sustainability

Inside, the Bestevaer 36 offers a cozy, traditional interior with modern sustainable touches. The dark-stained oak interior and recycled linoleum around the hatch contribute to the boat's eco-friendly design. The yacht includes a double berth and a quarter berth, ideal for a couple on remote adventures. The centerboard yacht has a hydraulic system for the center plate, reducing the draft from 2.4 meters for sailing to about one meter for drying out. The boat's insulation consists of spray cork below the waterline and non-porous mineral wool above, ensuring a well-insulated environment.


The Bestevaer 36 is a high-quality, custom yacht designed for serious sailors. While compact, it offers exceptional build quality and sustainability.
