Bering 70 launch

We are excited to announce the successful launch of Bering 70, hull #1 in the Yachtship series.

Like all of Bering’s models she has been designed from the keel up and it’s ideal for extensive coastal cruising. Her hull shape and profile let you easily recognize that the Bering 70 is an atypical motoryacht that is incredibly stylish.

A reverse-raked bow is seldom seen in yacht designs of this size. The absence of a large overhanging bow means that there is less reserve buoyancy to create lift when making contact with an approaching wave. This in turn leads to the hull “slicing” through waves as opposed to riding up and over, thereby dampening pitch at sea. The end result, a smoother ride for everyone on board.

Bering 70 is designed with a shallow draft of 4.5′ and a displacement of 132,000 pounds. She carries over 1,000 gallons of fuel and can cruise for 2,500 miles.

Preliminary sea-trials will take place during 14th-19th of September in Antalya, Turkey. During the sea-trials we will collect performance data of the vessel.

As every boat builder has a long history, Bering Yachts has models that are popular among our clients and followers. One of these models is the B70. Two of these hulls we launched not that long ago: Ra has been set to sail in 2019 and Levanna – in 2022. Since then, we have been collecting feedback from the owners, and have improved this model by adding features that made B70-family boats larger and better capable for coastal cruises. As we have discontinued building 70-foot models, the improved B78, one of which is currently under construction, became a better replacement for this popular yacht.
