Completely and utterly has convinced me that Alu is a great material for boat building. Just make sure that the electrical circuits are isolated and no galvanic issues... so very beautiful.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I am not sure if they do the major cutting themselves at this yard, or order it precut and rolled from the CAD sections by a separate company in Holland.
That was my experiences there for both Steel and Alloy, cut perfectly with high pressure water....no heat distortion... Just perfect!

Yes, it was all precision pre cut and arrived at the yard in one hit. Below is a shot of the truck arriving at KM. I remember getting so excited seeing the first welds (it was the watertight bulkhead between the saloon/galley and owners' cabin).

I have this covered . My resident anchor-holic is also highly skilled and knowledgable when it comes to electrics (and he's not bad at a few other vital things as well ).

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

random question and I don't want to thread drift at all but I thought I'd ask since I'm kind of deciding myself. Will you be doing a dripless shaft seal or traditional stuffing box on your prop shaft?

Dripless shaft seal, a PSS. We have one on our current boat and it has been brilliant. Bone dry bilges are great to live with, and are especially good for an aluminium boat. This is another reason we are opting to go for a deck stepped mast again.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I just googled the origin of the word "lazarette" and found this explanation in Wiki. It is quite macabre:

"The name derives from the biblical story of "Lazarus". On the old square-rigged sailing ships it was located in the bow of the ship. The original purpose was to store the bodies of important passengers or crew who had died on the voyage, (lesser seamen would be buried at sea). It was a large locker obviously, and was situated at the bow in order that the stench of rotting flesh was blown away from the vessel rather than across the decks. All that remains from these origins is that it is still generally the largest locker on a boat, and it's still known as the "Lazarette"."

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

So when the ships would reach their destination, would all of the corpses in the lazarette come back to life?

Only if arrival was within 4 days of demise .

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I have a gut feeling that old Lazarus got a good laugh out of that tale.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Another photo of the cockpit and "garage" below it (no way I am ever again calling it a lazarette ):
