Before entering the very crowded segment of 24-30m superyachts Bering Yachts’ in-house design team had studied many concepts of the future vessel. It was decided that the first Bering hundred-footer would be a resemblance of the yard’s B145 flagship, but focused on family travels. This resulted in drafting of very smart long-range capable vessel with all the facilities to make the long journey, as well as short trip a pleasant time spending.
To understand how radical Bering 100 is, one has to take a closer look. Indeed, the overall classical appearance hides some outstanding features inside. First, at an overall length of 30.6m (LWL 28.78m) the steel-hulled Bering 100 has a beam of almost 8.5m! This is at least 1m more than the most of her sister ships can offer. This makes Bering 100 probably the widest yacht in her class.
Secondly, Bering 100 can be easily considered as the most voluminous boat on the market. In terms of inner spaces this full-displacement superyacht outperforms almost every boat by at least 30%. The figures are indeed astonishing – Bering 100 has 285 GT compared to the market average of 160-200 GT. This is a very important feature considering both interior design and a need to enlarge engine and service rooms as the boat is IMO Tier III compatible, i.e. has to accommodate additional equipment for NOx emissions reduction.
Thirdly, Bering 100 is a true long-range capable explorer. She can travel for more than 6000 miles thanks to her enormous fuel storage of 54,700 liters. This is enough to cross the Atlantic twice without refueling.
Living spaces / Entertainment
In terms of living spaces, the four-decked Bering 100 really has something to offer. Each of the yacht’s levels has enough room for relaxation and entertainment.
The half-covered flybridge hosts Jacuzzi, the wet-bar, undercover sofa and the open sun-lounge. Laying at 13m height above the water, the sun-deck is as open to sunshine, as secured from any unnecessary attention.
The upper deck has almost the same length as the boat itself allowing for enough space for several dinghies storage with a crane on the boat deck, open dining area forward, pilothouse and the library. Each zone is separated and private. The pilothouse is connected with the captain’s en-suite cabin while the library has its own entrance guaranteeing quiet time for the owner to relax.
The main deck is generally divided in two areas: public and private. The main saloon and covered al-fresco dining area in the cockpit are designated for general family and friends meetings while the forward section is reserved for the owner.
The owner’s apartments are an en-suite full-beam master stateroom with wardrobe and separate dining lounge for diners or business meetings. Multimedia system is at hand as well as an adjacent galley ready to serve both saloon and private dining.
The lower deck hosts four en-suite guest staterooms for eight guests and the crew quarters with three cabins and crew mess. The latter can accommodate the crew of six – more than enough to make the owner’s family well-served on the journey.
The large engine room is fully sound and fireproof and accessible from the lazarette. At the transom there is a large swimming platform with stairs leading to the cockpit.
The steel-hulled Bering 100 has five watertight bulkheads creating six compartments, so there is possibility to reconfigure the lower deck. Instead of having four guest staterooms there is a possibility to install additional storage, sauna and SPA zone.
At the main deck the saloon is fully customizable to create more open space for a larger bunch of guests. The kids’ playroom or larger wardrobe can be set up in the forward owner’s section.
The upper levels present many opportunities for reconfiguration as well. For instance, the upper deck library is a very useful place for the owner to spend on his own while undertaking a long trip, it can become a gym or additional stateroom.
