Bering Yachts reveals 105 Coastal yacht concept
by Chris Jefferies
American yard Bering Yachts has revealed details its latest concept, a 32 metre steel and aluminium motor yacht called the Bering Coastal 105.
The flagship of the yard’s Coastal range, the 105 is characterised by a wave-piercing semi-displacement hull with a vertical prow and a long, narrow entry, that should slice through waves with the minimum of fuss.
The yard adds that the Coastal 105’s deep forefoot will stop any slamming, even in rough conditions. Her vital statistics include a maximum beam of 8.25 metres, which allows for a spacious interior for her length. This means accommodation for eight guests and a crew of up to four people.
The interior design aims to balance modern touches with warm and interesting features. Views from the main saloon are excellent thanks to large windows on either side. Further forward, the galley flows seamlessly into the dining area, while the forward pilothouse completes the main-deck layout.
All accommodation is provided below decks, including the owner’s cabin, which will get its own bathtub in the en suite. But the star of the show is the superyacht sundeck, which is accessed via a staircase leading up from the cockpit. Key features in this area include extensive sunbathing spaces, tender storage and a full bar area.
Power would come from a pair of 400hp Cummins QSM11-KC engines for a top speed of 14 knots. When trimmed back to a cruising speed of 10 knots, the Bering Coastal 105 will boast a maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity in excess of 25,000 litres.
