At its facility in Antalya, Turkey, Bering Yachts launched Veronika, the 23.99-meter Bering B77 explorer yacht. This is the first of four launches in the Antalya Free Zone planned by the US company for 2021, including the launch of a Bering 70, Bering 92 and Bering 76 in the second half of the year.
Veronica is a semi-custom long-range voyager with enough power, supplies, and entertainment for a family of travelers. Designed in-house by Bering, this steel-hulled vessel is characterized by classic exterior and state-of-the-art specifications.
Inside, the three-decked yacht sports enough space to accommodate six guests and up to four crew, although she can also be sailed shorthanded. With a massive 170 GT of volume, she performs better than most other yacht brands below 24 metres.
The launch of the heavy displacement B77 was facilitated by the brand new 560-tonne capacity travel lift provided by the Antalya Free Zone marina. There are also completely new cranes and travel lifts up to 2,000 tonnes for launching bigger vessels, along with dedicated new hangars for superyacht construction and refit projects.
With this 77 footer we are opening a new chapter of compact cruisers. She may not be the longest yacht in the marinas, but you just have to look at the specs to understand her capabilities. Her communications are just one example: Veronika has two satellite Internet antennas and all the systems are doubled up so she will never be without sat comms. This is a yacht you can rely on. – Alexei Mikhailov, Bering Yachts’ founder and director
Veronika will undergo local sea trials before transferring to Australia to start high-latitude exploration cruising.
