Bering 65 is a rugged and classical-looking steel yacht capable of any ocean crossing. She is quiet, solid, and leaves a graceful wake underway. Her displacement is over 224,800 pounds (102 tons). With 4,500 gallons (17,000 l) of fuel, you can cruise continuously for thousands of miles burning a combined 8 gallons (30 l) an hour at 8 knots.
Her interior is lavishly crafted with beautiful woodwork and a variety of counter, flooring, and upholstery selections.
The saloon features built-in seating on both sides with a large dinette to starboard. An entertainment center forward of the settees has a large flat-screen TV surrounded by hand-finished woods of your choosing. Large double aft doors can be opened when maximum ventilation is desired or when entertaining large groups. A staircase forward leads to the lower staterooms.
The full-width galley is just aft of the pilothouse steering room but on the same level. Refrigeration units and in-wall oven(s) are located off to the port side, along with drawer storage and an optional wine chiller. To the starboard side, you have a cooking surface, trash compactor, sink, dishwasher, and dry storage. This galley is bright and airy, thanks in part to the open bulkhead and its location above the saloon’s elevation.
Forward of the galley, the pilothouse is the command where most of the ship’s controls and displays are collected. From here, you can monitor all critical systems such as tank levels, engine metrics, and battery banks. This lower helm station is perfect for steering in inclement weather conditions. Wing doors lead to both port and starboard side decks. Extensive window placement on three sides provides complete forward and adjacent viewing of your surroundings. An L-shaped settee located aft of the helm chair is perfect for hanging out with the captain while underway and offers an alternative place to lounge and read if you wish some separation from the saloon.
The master stateroom can be located forward as a v-berth of aft, or as an amidships stateroom. Bering 65 is set up as a three-stateroom layout in its standard configuration, with each stateroom having its own bathroom.
The engine room houses the twin diesel engines in addition to many of the ship’s machinery components. Bering Yachts places great emphasis on minimizing noise and vibration coming from this space. The entire engine room is surrounded by acoustic paneling and heavy bulkhead insulation. The engine room’s aft is utility/storage space, perfect for such things as fenders, water-maker, dive compressor, and tool storage.
Access to the swim platform is available through either of the outboard stairwells in the cockpit. The aft platform is located just above the waterline to allow for easy access to your tender or water toys. Throughout the deck spaces, you will find intelligent and thoughtful touches such as the numerous mooring cleats, freeing ports to quickly clear the decks of green water, and ergonomic handrails for maximum security.
The covered cockpit provides additional outdoor living space regardless of weather conditions, be it intense tropical sun or a rainy day at anchor. The cockpit settee and table are perfect for outdoor dining, visiting, or just comfortably lounging. Covered side decks and tall bulwarks provide a very secure walkway to the Portuguese bridge and foredeck. Large storage lockers inside the Portuguese bridge are perfect for storing docklines, hoses, and equipment. Molded-in seating on the foredeck puts you out in front with a view second to none!
Bering 65’s covered flybridge helm station and seating area provide exceptional views whether underway or at anchor. With generously sized settees and the option to have any combination of refrigeration, outdoor grilling, stainless sink, etc., you can entertain guests with ease. The aft boat deck can easily accommodate a 14’ (4 meter) tender, effortlessly launched and recovered with a hydraulic crane. The boat deck stairwell connects the covered cockpit, which means you don’t have to move through the interior spaces when you wish to head up to the upper deck after swimming or diving.
