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.
