Turkish shipyard Bering Yachts has turned the hull on its first flagship 145 motor yacht.
Custom-built with a full displacement steel hull, the 44.2 metre motor yacht is due for delivery in 2021 and is currently under construction in Antalya, Turkey.
Combining “elegance, speed and the latest technology”, the superyacht was designed entirely in-house and will be fitted with a hybrid propulsion system. Under diesel power, the yacht will have an 8,000 nautical mile range at a cruising speed of 10 knots.
With a 9.7 metre beam, the Bering 145 has an “extremely functional” interior layout with a large saloon, lounge area and dining table large enough to seat 12 on the main deck. A second dining area is found on the upper deck in the skylounge. The main deck also hosts the master cabin, which sits forward.
An additional five guest cabins provide total accommodation for 12 guests on board.
A total of 32 square metres of storage space for equipment and water toys sits on the lower deck while tenders are stored on the upper deck. A large relaxation and entertainment area is found in the 40 square metre beach club, which sits at the stern.
Alexey Mikhailov, president and chairman of Bering Yachts, said: “This is a proud moment for all of us at Bering Yachts. With the hull turning completed we can now properly visualise the real size of the vessel and it brings us a step closer to launching a truly spectacular flagship. The owners are very involved, are delighted with the construction progress and are counting down the days to her launch now. This yacht will lead the way that others will follow."
