Burger and Seaton join forces to develop new expedition yacht
by Malcolm MacLean
Burger Boat Company and Seaton Yachts are collaborating on plans to develop and market the Seaton Expedition Eighty-Three motor yacht.
To be built to ice class, The Seaton Expedition Eighty-Three is designed for unlimited ocean service, with the range to cross any ocean at 10 to 12 knots. Commercially-rated diesel engines provide redundancy and safety for extended cruising in remote areas. With twin engines, bow and stern thrusters, and hydraulic mooring capstans, the Seaton Expedition Eighty-Three will be a seaworthy, long range yacht that is easy to manoeuvre.
Designed to be operated and maintained solely by the owner, she also offers self-contained crew quarters for owners choosing to have crew.
The main deck will feature full walk-around side decks and high, solid bulwarks, providing on-deck protection and security in any sea conditions. Watertight exterior doors, heavy-duty windows, and big-ship features such as automatic tank vent closures are all part of a motor vessel designed for ocean travel. She is designed and built for extended life aboard at sea, at anchor or dockside.
No date has yet been set for the build to commence.
