The hull and superstructure of the second hull of Bering Yacht’s B145 explorer yacht series have been joined at the brand’s facility in Antalya, Turkey. This marks a significant milestone for the construction of the 44-metre yacht, which is the flagship range for Bering Yachts.
The sale of the yacht, which was designed by Bering’s in-house team of naval architects and engineers, was announced, in February 2021. The three-deck yacht is capable of high-latitude cruising and the yacht’s new owner wants to use the vessel to “explore the world”. Scheduled for delivery in 2024 the yacht has now been moved to Bering’s outfitting facilities.
“Comfort, reliability, and capability – this is important in any exploration-type yacht, and it is exactly what we want to provide to our customers,” said Alexey Mikhailov, president of Bering Yachts. “Our growing construction capacity is following the demand of true enthusiasts and sea-lovers. We promote freedom and curiosity, all in a safe environment of Bering-built boats.”
The yacht is the sistership of the first B145 explorer, which was named Heeus and delivered last Autumn. The second hull offers spacious interior spaces with a 9.7 metre beam. Accommodation includes a full-beam stateroom on the main deck and five guests suites on the lower deck.
Ideal for exploring remote destinations the beach club incorporates a sauna and spa, as well a fully equipped diving room with its own fold-down door and decompression chamber. The open upper deck aft deck also means the yacht can carry tenders of up to 8.5 metres and additional toys.
The yacht features a hybrid propulsion drive that allows for a combination of electric motors for silent operations and a conventional diesel engine. The yacht will have a top speed of 15 knots and will have a range of more than 4,000 nautical miles when cruising at 12 knots.
Continuing to expand its presence in the explorer yacht market, Bering has a further three yachts in production, a B125, B121, B117, all of which area also scheduled for delivery next year.
