Burger Boat Co. has announced that the superstructure has been set in place on the first of two 180’ Motor Yachts. The two Burger 180’ Motor Yachts are currently under construction at Burger’s shipyard in Manitowoc, Wis. While the first is sold, the second is available for sale, providing its new owner an opportunity to build their new yacht in the U.S. and add their custom touches to its design, shipyard officials said.
The Burger 180 Motor Yacht features expansive interior and exterior spaces for its owner and guests, while its mechanical features are intended to make the cruising experience even more comfortable. In addition, each yacht has been designed for full handicapped accessibility, including its large elevator, providing all guests easy access to each of its four decks.
Boarding the yacht from the stern mounted passerelle, guests are greeted on the aft deck, which provides direct access to the main salon, tender bay, and via a circular stairway, the aft bridge deck. Additionally, easy access to the swim platform is provided via the tender bay.
The main salon is built for more formal entertaining and dining experiences. Large windows are designed to provide a feeling of openness while enjoying time with friends and family.
Forward on the main deck is a full beam owner’s suite with an adjoining private office. Guest accommodations for up to 10 guests in four staterooms, with large windows to bring in natural light and scenic views, are situated on the lower deck. The staterooms are designed to easily convert into two sets of family suites.
The skylounge offers a large bar and entertainment area for relaxation with friends and family and opens to the aft bridge deck area for outdoor dining, entertaining, or relaxation. Forward on the bridge deck are the pilothouse, yacht’s office, and captain’s stateroom.
For those who wish to take in the action and view the journey while outdoors, a large circular seating area is situated forward of the pilothouse.
The sundeck offers a number of areas for outdoor enjoyment. Situated all the way forward are two raised seating areas, one each port and starboard, and three individual, forward-looking chairs providing vistas of the surroundings.
The professional galley is designed for the most demanding needs and long-range cruising. It features commercial equipment and includes a large walk-in refrigerator, walk-in freezer, walk-in pantry, and direct access to the skylounge service pantry.
The crew accommodations are configured for up to 13 and are designed to provide private staterooms for the yacht’s captain, chief officer, chief engineer, chief stewardess, and chef. In addition, a large lounge and relaxation area, with large windows, is provided for crew comfort.
Stowed in the tender bay is the yacht’s 37' tender, which is launched and retrieved via a custom hydraulic “stinger” system. With this system, the tender is safely stowed while underway, thus eliminating the need for towing.
Powered by twin Caterpillar 3512C IMO Tier II engines, the Burger 180’ Motor Yacht has a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
Designed with entertainment, technological advances, reliability, and worldwide cruising with family and friends in mind, the Burger 180’ Motor Yacht offers many mechanical firsts in yachting. The electrical generation system has been developed to ensure adequate power in all situations. With nine Kohler 40-kW generators installed in parallel, the yacht’s power generation system offers maximum efficiency and redundancy while ensuring that no generator ever runs underloaded.
Naiad Dynamics Four Fin, Zero Speed Stabilization System is installed to provide maximum comfort at sea.
