AURELIUS, a Bestevaer 76S sloop, is a swift and elegant classical cruiser. Her fine hull design is the ideal blending of speed and pleasant motion under way. Her shallow draft gives her access to many anchorages and small ports which are normally not accessible to yachts of her size.
AURELIUS sports a bimini that stays on whilst sailing and fully covers the cockpit with side extensions to provide shade from late afternoon sun & protection from rain showers. She also has a large sun awning that can be rigged to shade the midship area. Her spacious clean deck with four sun mattresses, plus several deck cushions, is ideal for lounging or bathing in the sun.
AURELIUS` elegant interior joinery, upholstery and fittings are of a very high standard. She accommodates 4 adults and 2 children. The master queen stateroom is located forward and has ensuite facilities. Two guest cabins are aft of the saloon. The port queen stateroom has direct access into the day head with shower. The twin lower singles cabin to starboard has an ensuite washbasin and shares the day head with the port cabin.

AURELIUS Crew Profile
Captain Ken Lannamann
Ken grew up near the water in New England and began sailing at a young age. Now, as an experienced charter yacht captain, Ken holds a U.S. Coast Guard 100-ton Master’s license plus a Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Ocean License, and is a PADI Divemaster. He has sailed extensively through the Caribbean, Mediterranean, New England, and North and South Pacific Oceans, including numerous trans-Atlantic and Pacific passages.
Ken also has substantial history in the Ocean Engineering and Oceanographic Research communities, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and graduate studies in Ocean Engineering.
Chef Crystal Huls
Crystal is truly an outdoors person, as much at home on the open sea as she is in the vast forests of her home province of British Columbia. Whether on land or water creating fine food is the common thread running through her many careers. She has worked as a private chef for guest and staff at Whitecap Alpine Lodge and as a white water rafting guide preparing 100 meals a day.
Her land-based endeavors include founding a tree care service company and holding the position of arborist for the city of Vancouver. She has also been a general construction Survey Technician and music festival event coordinator.
To say that Crystal takes a comprehensive approach to working in the yacht charter industry is an understatement. As first mate on sailing yachts up to 95 feet in length, she was responsible for the engine room as well interior and exterior maintenance and bookkeeping, often while simultaneously serving as stewardess and chef! Since 2008 she has worked primarily as chef on yachts up to 156 feet, both sail and power. Crystal served two busy and successful seasons aboard AURELIUS in the Med under the previous owner before happily rejoining her again on this side of the Atlantic.
