I am sure they would make you welcome. We may even schedule a pre Christmas visit ourselves, so it would be great to get together.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Looks amazing, a question though. That bow thruster tunnel - why so far away from the bow? Surely, closer to bow / farther from center of lateral resistance gives better mechanical advantage?

It needs to be a minimum distance from the waterline and this just manages to achieve this.

The wide angle shot is a bit deceptive though. It is still a fair way forward if you look at the profile:

Ahh, yes, compromises...
But, as compromises go, yours is a beautiful one :-)

A word that rears its ugly head with just about every decision that needs to be made, if only for cost reasons. I do feel extraordinarily lucky though that we are getting a chance to make these compromises .

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Pilothouse construction has commenced. These nine windows will flood the galley and saloon with light, as a metre at the front will extend past the pilothouse itself, increasing the height in the area below:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Oh wow.... at first I envisioned the pilothouse sitting on the boat as pictured above, with the reverse rake/expedition style windows! But alas, I forget everything is flipped around for now. Looks awesome. Will there be hatches on the roof of the pilothouse?

I sometimes flip the photos to help perspective .

Yes, there will be two 500 x 500 mm hatches towards the front of the pilothouse roof.
