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

SWL
We have one hatch above the driver's seat. It's nice to check the mainsail and windex through that hatch.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

When I bought Stargazer, one item I was unhappy with, was a very large double sized hatch , aft of the inside Steering /Nav consoles that offered a great skyview from the pilothouse seating/ dining area.

I thought it too large, too vulnerable.

Now, 11 years later, I have really appreciated having this large deck opening to bring in new large items like an Isotherm drawer fridge/freezer that otherwise, would never have fitted.

Great for winching out heavy AGM batteries or engine parts in a rebuild and it does scoop in an incredible amount of fresh air, when opened.

My thanks to the previous Owner.:thumbup:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Our boat no longer looks "like a tank" when compared to the structure designed for polar exploration that is growing beside her:

Do you know the distance between frames for your and the adjacent boat? It looks like theirs is at least half?

Could just be an illusion from being close up with a wide angle lens

I don't know how far apart the are on the exploration vessel. Looking at how much of the hull has been built and counting the number of frames, I guess they may be around 500 mm apart.

Our full frames are 750 mm apart with intermediary supports at the bottom of the hull (so 375 mm apart in this area).

The front of our boat gives a different perspective of this:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Hull plating is near completed. All the sheets are in place so it probably won't be long now before the big flip .
The team at KM is dedicated - this batch of photos arrived on a Sunday!
