Any Experience / Comments about Bestevaer Design

Hi guys,

was wondering what your experiences / comments / thoughts are regarding the Bestevaer design by Gerard Dijkstra. How could one compare this design to an Ovni? In particular Bestevaer Albatros under
Dykstra & Partners Naval Architects

Thank you.

The Bestevaer is a terrific boat. Dijkstra made one for himself and sailed it north, and then they have made a bunch more incorporating what he learned. Its fast and seakindly and strong and easy to maintain.

It has almost nothing in common with an Ovni except they are both made in aluminum. The Ovni is a centerboard with low stability and the Bestevaer is a deep keep with high stability. The Ovni is pretty much a production boat made to a price while the Bestevaer is pretty much a custrom boat.
