Bestevaer 56 Tranquilo

Bestevaer 56 Falcon Spirit (prev. Tranquilo)

According to the designer, this yacht is to be classified as ‘Spirit of Tradition’, being traditionally styled but showing powerful performance characteristics such as a fine entry, shallow canoe body, lift keel and a balanced spade rudder.

The customer opted for a Bestevaer after a sea trial with Bestevaer 53 ST ‘Alice’. According to him, the yacht performed extremely well. He was looking for a fast yacht that he would be able to handle single-handedly. He chose KM Yachtbuilders because of their short lead-time, the excellent references regarding hull construction and because of the architect’s recommendation The Tranquilo’s interiors are very functional, smooth and state-of-the-art – a different and special interior design in the yachtbuilding industry! The exterior appearance is classic, with a flush deck and a teak-cladded pilothouse.

This customer understandably emphasized safety issues in his list of requirements.
A few particulars: Hall Spars carbon mast and carbon Park Avenue boom, North Sails 3DL sails, one-line reefing system, water ballast tanks and a lift keel.

The Tranquilo has been sold.
