Bering Yachts reveals flagship project Bering 130
by Chris Jefferies
American yard Bering Yachts has revealed its latest yacht project, the Bering 130, which would become the yard’s flagship if built.
Developed initially for an American client, but now being marketed overseas, this 40 metre yacht features rugged exterior styling developed in collaboration with Australian studio Sabdes Design.
The yard adds that the tall bow profile provides the requisite stability needed to cross oceans and deal with heavy swells. This tri-deck explorer yacht features a Portuguese bridge and a maximum cruising range of 6,000 nautical miles, thanks to a 64,000 litre fuel capacity.
The functional layout includes a huge superyacht sundeck on the flybridge with a wet bar, Jacuzzi, various lounging areas and partial shade from the hardtop.
Meanwhile, the upper deck skylounge boasts large doors opening aft to reinforce the connection between the interior and exterior spaces, as well as a library, captain’s quarters and al fresco dining space for up to ten people.
A more formal dining space is provided on the main deck, where full-height windows provide great views out to sea.
Accommodation includes a full-beam main-deck master suite, situated forward of the saloon, while four further double cabins equipped with full en-suite facilities bring the total capacity to ten guests. Other key features include a massage room, dedicated superyacht gym, foredeck seating area, and tender storage space for three RIBs and a Jet Ski.
Power will come from a pair of 1,200hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines for a top speed of 14 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots, while an optional Seakeeper stabilisation system would ensure a smooth cruising experience.
