Photos from construction of first motor yacht Bering 80 by Bering Yachts

August 20, 2014

Last month saw Bering Yachts release the photos from the construction of the first motor yacht Bering 80. As the photos show,  the first stage of welding of the 24-metre superyacht Bering 80 hull has been completed. The hull has been mounted, and the main deck and superstructure are in the process of assembling. Due to be delivered in late spring 2015, this lovely explorer-style yacht can be characterized by a sea-kindly motion in heavy weather, reliability and ultimate seaworthiness of design.

Luxury motor yacht Bering 75 by Bering Yachts

July 31, 2014

Luxury motor yacht Bering 75 by Bering Yachts represents a flagship of the Yachtship Series of motoryachts. This series mixes up all of the seakeeping abilities of the Expedition series, while bringing a modern “contemporary” look and feel to the design. Bering 75 yacht could be rightfully classified as an “expedition yacht” given her amazing capabilities.

The heavy displacement motor yacht Bering 75, whose hull form takes design comes from the proven ocean going commercial trawler, excels in the areas that matter most: a sea-kindly motion in heavy weather, reliability and ultimate seaworthiness of design.

Beyond using a proven hull design, the entire Bering line relies on a “heavy for size” approach to providing the uncommon sea-kindly motion that very few if any recreational motoryachts are capable of delivering. A carefully designed low center of gravity combined with the sheer mass of the vessel provides a reduction in roll moment and minimized pitching and pounding that so many find unpleasant. This “heavy for size” approach is well proven in the commercial marine market where vessel “weight” is really how one defines a vessel’s size as opposed to length. Note that the luxury yacht Bering 75 displaces 298 000 pounds at full load which is significantly more than her competitors!

While at sea, one’s peace of mind is of utmost importance, which is why in addition to the hull & structural design Bering puts great emphasis on the reliability & durability of their motoryachts. The strict use of only commercially rated and internationally sourced equipment on board ensures you will have minimal equipment related problems, and in the rare case that you do, parts will be readily available regardless of your locale.

A semi-custom build approach allows for true customization of the interior layout and appointments. Bering 75 yacht can be configured in a variety of different ways depending on your particular desires.

Motor yacht Bering 75 offers her owners a luxury platform by which to cruise, especially for extended times exploring coastlines or making longer passages. With tanks holding 7000 gallons of fuel, there really is no port out of your reach. Travelling at efficient passage making speeds of around 8 knots your range is in excess of 3 000 nautical miles. Should your plans not call for such distant voyages then you have the peace of mind knowing that a full load of fuel will last many months of coastal cruising. Likewise, 1 000 gallons of fresh water capacity ensures a high quality of life, allowing extended hot water showers without guilt as well as not having to run a water maker so frequently. Bering 75 yacht really is a cruisers delight!

Luxury yacht Bering 80 can be configured in a variety of different ways depending on your particular desires. The accompanying layout renderings show just several of the options available to you. As an option, the master stateroom can be located forward on the main deck level to provide maximum privacy from the guest staterooms below. Private guest staterooms can be configured however you like based on your desire for company while aboard. If you wish to have dedicated crew aboard then separate crew quarters can be configured into the layout as well.

The Bering 18 luxury yacht is the fourth collaboration project in the series of 15m-24m (50′-80′) Bering Yachts Steel Oceangoing Motoryachts. The design is based upon Bering Yachts fully engineered semi-custom design.

Images of the new Bering 18 explorer yacht were presented at Trawlerfest 2012 in Florida with the customer feedback being very positive. Also presented was a scale model of the Bering 24 superyacht also styled by Sabdes.

The Bering 18 yacht is one of the most voluminous 18m vessels around. With 5.7m (19′) beam she is unique in the vast accomodation space she can offer for this size vessel.
