Burger Boats has announced the launch of its first steel hull in over 50 years – the 32m/103ft motor yacht known as PROJECT 105, which was Christened NORTHLAND during the launch ceremony. Designed by Miami-based Luiz de Basto, who also completed the contemporary interiors, M/Y NORTHLAND incorporates the owner’s passion for fishing with an aft swim platform fitted with a full fishing station.
The layout contains a spacious aft main salon, a separate formal dining area and a forward library complete with a comfortable L-shaped sofa, armchairs and a coffee table on which to rest reading material. The main aft has a sheltered outdoor salon that connects to the large swim platform on the lower deck.
The upper deck is the location of the Owner’s suite, complete with walk-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. In the helm station, there is a sofa for guests complete with a table, for a tranquil indoor escape away from the main group. The upper deck aft is fitted with two sun loungers and a large alfresco dining space along the stern. The bow is spacious enough to store two large tenders, which are lowered into the water via a crane.
Up on the flybridge, guests can soak in the aft Jacuzzi and savour a drink from the nearby bar. There is also a collection of sunpads port of the Jacuzzi, and there is fitted forward seating designed for alfresco dining.
“The Northland is a prime example of Burger’s fine craftsmanship and dedication to working with our customers to build one-of-a-kind vessels,” said Jim Ruffolo, President and CEO, Burger Boat Company. “She is not only designed for the durability and range needed for a global expedition, but also for style and luxury.”
Using a pair of CAT C18 ACRET, 475 BHP engines, luxury yacht NORTHLAND has a cruising speed of 12 knots and a maximum speed of 12.4 knots. At 9.5 knots, she has a nautical range of 4,000 miles to ensure that the owner can spend as much time as possible among remote fishing spots.
