Wisconsin-based shipyard Burger Boat Company has launched its first steel-hulled motor yacht in over 50 years last week. Christened Northland, Project 510 is the design work of the Miami-based Luiz de Basto.
Based on a full displacement steel hull, Northland is finished with an aluminium superstructure and is built to incorporate unique features that match the owner’s passion for fishing. The aft cockpit, for example, comes complete with a full fishing station and a cruising range of 4,000 nm for days of deep-water action.
“The Northland is a prime example of Burger’s fine craftsmanship and dedication to working with our customers to build one-of-a-kind vessels,” said Jim Ruffolo, President and CEO, Burger Boat Company. “She is not only designed for the durability and range needed for a global expedition, but also for style and luxury.”
The vessel measures around 270 Gross Tonnes and houses an interior, also by Luiz de Basto, described as contemporary by the shipyard.
