Bering Yachts introduces the classic expedition vessel-inspired Bering 72. The expedition yacht is an evolution of the Bering 65 model, three units of which have been delivered and collectively sailed more than 100,000 nautical miles in all sea conditions. Although the steel-hulled B72 is based on the same technical platform and preserves the sturdy expedition-style lines, she is bigger and is fitted with more comfort and storage space for supplies.
The bow of the tri-deck yacht has less overhang and the transom is close to vertical with a wide beach platform. Her aluminium superstructure offers panoramic views through large windows.
The main deck is home to a spacious salon, full-width galley, and pilothouse on a raised level. Visually separated from the salon by steps, the well-equipped galley is the perfect space for socializing. The pilothouse features a windscreen of toughened 19mm-thick glass.
Bering offers several options for the lower deck layout and guest accommodation. The standard layout features three guest cabins and a full-beam master suite forward. The customers may opt for a 5 or even 6-cabin layout with or without a crew cabin as well.
The boat deck has enough space to accommodate one large or two smaller tenders (and accompanying crane) and is divided from the social area and exterior helm station. In addition to the flybridge, the open-air areas include the aft cockpit with al fresco dining and a sun lounge on the foredeck.
Powered by twin Cummins 327-hp diesel engines the ocean-going B72 has a range of more than 5000 nm at a cruising speed of 7 knots. The yacht has a displacement of 118 tons (260,000 lbs) with a fuel capacity of 18,200 liters (4,500 gal). Spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage space, the vessel is perfect for extended voyaging off the beaten track.
