Designer Scott Blee comments on the new B70 Tempest design


The B70 began as a coastal cruiser design by Bering’s own naval architects. Additional displacement and faster versions were intended from the outset.

SABDES Design was brought in and tasked to further develop the exterior styling.

The hull form developed by Bering was more “dreadnought cruiser” than the company’s traditional Explorer types, so a theme developed from there: The bow has a reverse stem which is similar in style to the commonly termed “axebow.” This lent some direction for her overall exterior styling. An example is seen in the aft edge of the saloon windows; it is the same as the reverse arc seen in the bow.

“The focus from the beginning was for a sleek, low draft and low air-height design,” says Scott Blee of SABDES Yacht Design. “I started playing around with a large curve running in profile from the front of the bridge right to the aft of the sundeck.

“This enhanced the low-profile appearance as the volume diminishes away easily. Also, the curve is a unique feature, making the eye follow it from whichever angle the boat is at,” he adds. “A large forward sundeck and lounge area keep the design well balanced, not heavy weighted toward the front. The whole design reflects the fact that the outside relaxation areas were given equal importance to the inside spaciousness.”
