No, no -- the water flow doesn't know and doesn't care where the rudder shaft is. Hydrodynamics are determined by the shape of the rudder itself.

"Balanced" rudders are all about the "power steering" effect. This is important and reduces the loads (maybe several times over) on the autopilot, not to mention the helmsman.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

The first of the 3D interior images have been sent.

I am in my element here . I love playing with design and before this project commenced, I have never had CAD drawings to work with. I am like a kid with a new toy , although still in my infancy using the program without any instructions.

For those of you who have never worked with CAD, ever single layer can be peeled back from any side. The image can be rotated 360, giving a 3D view of each space from any angle. The construction is broken down to every last tiny bit of material used. Items can be selected and moved around and rotated.

It must make construction hugely easier for KM, but also means they can have some confidence that the owner is not later going to pipe up with the dreaded words "I didn't know it would be like that and it's not how I want it". It must be bad enough having clients change their mind mid stream, without the added headache of disappointing someone due to misinterpretation.

The interior was basically fully drawn up in our plans, so for us this stage is more about polishing the details. I still have the rough pencil sketch of the interior layout that Eeuwe (the owner of KM) drew in about 10 seconds when we met for the first time just over two years ago and explained what we wanted. I smile looking at it, as it is virtually unchanged.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

TO keep grounded and not let the euphoria of this interesting build cloud our perceptive processes, just remember it only has one hull..

There I said it.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

It's a good suggestion Weavis, but I think a second hull is about as likely as a generator.

Noelex posted some of our photos of Pure on this thread:
KM's New Yacht the Bestevaer Pure

More shots are on KM's website (we were at KM when the interior photographer was there):

Also, lots of images of Pure are on KM's FB page.

Edited to add: I've just had a peek at FB. The latest post is a video of Pure with skipper Hessel (9) at the helm with crew consisting of brother Eise (7) and dad Eeuwe (young looking ), on their way to HISWA.

The Pure's listing is on Yachtworld:

2016 Bestevaer 45ST Pure Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Not a huge fan of the flat front cabinets. Looks too much like a normal mass produced boat.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

That pure doesn't appear to have a Nav station in the pilot house. Hopefully that's an option.
