Burger Motor Yacht Loose Ends Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in aluminium by US yard Burger to a design by Don O’Keefe, she was delivered in 2003 as the yard’s first expedition yacht and the first full displacement hull in the company's modern-day history, with a major refit in 2019. An interior by Linda Street Design accommodates 10 guests in five cabins comprising a master suite, two VIP suites and two twins, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities
A large main saloon comes with lounge seating, a television screen, formal dining table and an exquisite crystal display cabinet to the port side which stores the china and crystal close at hand. To starboard, a full-service bar is integrated. Forward of the dining area, the staircase and foyer feature sliding doors that close-off the saloon for quiet dining.
Outdoor spaces include the main aft deck, with a fixed al fresco dining set up and wet bar with bar stools. The sundeck features sunpads and seating, the helm station and a new Jacuzzi spa tub added in February 2020. The Portuguese bridge is another popular and private outdoor space and includes dual settees for open air relaxation and a good vantage point to gaze out over the horizon.
Her top speed is 14 knots and her power comes from two 800hp Caterpillar 3406-E diesel engines. For added safety and comfort she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers.
Loose Ends was asking $7,800,000.
