Successful hull turning for second B70

With three yachts under construction, and other projects on the drawing board, the Bering shipyard is working at full speed.

Today, Bering 70’s hull was successfully turned. The steel-work was completed using the overturned construction technique, a boat building method which allows for greater precision for vessels built in steel and aluminum. The next step in the construction is mounting the aluminum superstructure, once completed.

B70 benefits from a modern design, multiple innovations and considerable attention to detail. Her distinctive hull shape is designed to cut through the water and will be less affected by oncoming waves than a bow with more flare.

As well as all the other Berings, B70 is also a semi-custom built boat. Once completed, her displacement will be 124,000 lbs. (62 tons) she will have a range of 2,500 nm at a cruising speed of 8 knots, and will be able to reach a maximum speed of 12 knots.

Delivery of B70 Apsara is scheduled for spring 2018.

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.
