Broker’s Comments

Beister 13.50, BERTINA is a classic beauty with eye-catching lines and a unique stainless steel hull. The previous owner had a comprehensive refit done in 2002, giving her a new lease of life, with the current owner keeping the boat in excellent condition with many upgrades added over the years. BERTINA is extremely safe & easy to sail shorthanded with her hydraulic genoa, self-tacking jib and winches plus the added bonus of a fixed doghouse. The yacht has been meticulously maintained by her owner and is an eye-catcher in every port she visits!

Owner’s Comments

We sold our Nauticat 42 Deck Saloon in 2015 and were looking to downsize to circa 39′. We could not find anything we liked and came across Beister 13.50, BERTINA in the Netherlands by chance with a ‘For Sale’ sign on her. It just so happened she was in the same marina we had been looking at some other listings. The German/Dutch owners were on board and showed us around. We fell in love with this unique and beautiful yacht and bought her the next day. We kept her in the Netherlands for 2016 & sailed her around the Ijsslemeer and Markemeer. Returning to Hamble in 2017 via the standing mast route through Amsterdam then back across the channel.

Originally built in 1974, by Beister Yachts, as a ketch with lifting keel – she subsequently changed hands to the owner’s son in law (from whom we bought her), who then had her totally refitted in 2002 – converting her to long keel and Bermuda rig. She is easy to handle both under power and when sailing. My wife particularly likes the low freeboard, meaning crew can just step onto a pontoon rather than jumping down. We re-named her BERTINA (German for Elizabeth) in 2018. She attracts compliments everywhere we go and is a beautiful yacht to own. She stands out in every marina and is perfect for coastal sailing with the occasional trip across the channel.

She is unique and constructed from stainless steel. Even the surveyor we used in Holland, where they have a lot of steel yachts, had never seen a stainless yacht before. She has the best workmanship – the refit was done in a shipyard in Emden-, Germany and no expense was spared. The previous owner later fitted a carbon mast and Park Lane boom to compliment the hydraulic rigging. She has been regularly maintained and updated sympathetically. We are reluctantly selling her as our future plans have changed & for health reasons.
