Construction starts on first Bering 80


Bering Yachts has announced that the first Bering 80 superyacht is currently under construction. The heavy displacement motoryacht is part of the Yachtship Series of motoryachts from the shipyard, and will bring a modern look and feel to the design whilst still upholding the seakeeping abilities of the Expedition series.

The yacht allows for owner customisation of the interior layout with a semi-custom build approach. One variety of layout configuration includes locating the master stateroom forward on the main deck to provide maximum privacy from the guest staterooms below.

The line relies on an approach they call ‘heavy for size’, using the vessels weight to reduce the roll movement and minimise pitching. Ideal for long voyages, the Bering 80 boasts an impressive range of 6000 nm at 8-10 knots, with her tanks holding 10,000 gallons of fuel.
