Bering Yachts has started construction of a new Bering 70 in Antalya, Turkey. She has been designed from the keel up to be a superb coastal cruiser by Scott Blee, of the preeminent SABDES Yacht Design in Australia.
The new B70 will feature a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. A single-level pilothouse and slightly reverse-raked bow will give off a strong sense of a patrol boat tightly wrapped in a fashionable gun-metal gray hull. The absence of a large overhanging bow will reduce the reserve buoyancy that creates the lift/pitch in an approaching wave.
Her owners opted for a minimalist interior design with clean, crisp lines and light-colored wood throughout the boat. She will feature three en-suite staterooms plus an additional quarters for crew.
With twin Cummins QSB diesels, this 21-meter motor-yacht will be able to run as far as 2,500 nautical miles at an efficient speed of 9 knots.
