Bestevaer 45 Africa

Upsizing tends to be the trend, but this owner went from a Bestevaer 60C to a Bestevaer 53T, and then to a 45ST. So that meant downsizing!

However, the owner of the “Africa” knows what he’s doing: “The kids no longer sail with us, and my wife and I don’t want to do any long trips anymore. The Bestevaer 45ST is the perfect daysailer for us.” The doghouse offers shelter against wind and water. On the lower deck the guest cabin can be found on the port side and the wet cell with separate shower are on the starboard side. In front of that is a bench with the chart table behind it. In front of the guest cabin on the port side the galley has been fitted, with a spacious sitting area with dining table in front of it.
