Raised pilothouse by Ivan Erdevicki
For more than a century, Burger has been one of the most well-known and highly respected names in boating in the United States. The company’s designs are known for not only its commitment to quality, but also its appreciation of classic elements. In the past few years, however, a different kind of Burger has begun to emerge, with the shipyard’s recent collaboration with Vancouver-based Ivan Erdevicki Naval Architecture & Yacht Design. The newest project on Burger’s drawing board is a 131-foot (40-meter) contemporary raised pilothouse design, which includes an impressive array of amenities for a yacht of its size, including a hidden garage for a 19-foot tender. A full-beam master suite—complete with his-and-hers bathrooms—shares the main deck with both formal and informal dining areas, an open salon and a shaded al fresco dining space. Powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M94 main engines, this yacht is designed to cruise at 22 knots and has a range of 2,500 nautical miles at 11 knots.
