The 23.99-metre explorer-style motor yacht Veronika has been launched by her builder, Bering Yachts, in Antalya, Turkey.The semi-custom project was designed in-house by Bering Yachts and accommodates up to six guests and four crew. Due to her tri-deck layout, Veronika has a spacious interior volume of 170 GT, unusual for a yacht of her size.Bering Yachts’ founder and director, Alexei Mikhailov, notes that size is not necessarily the most important aspect of a superyacht, “With this 77-footer we are opening a new chapter of compact cruisers. She may not be the longest yacht in the marinas, but you just have to look at the specs to understand her capabilities. Her communications are just one example: Veronika has two satellite Internet antennas and all the systems are doubled up so she will never be without sat comms. This is a yacht you can rely on”.Performance-wise, the explorer yacht Veronika can cruise comfortably at 8 knots and reach a top speed of 11 knots. She sports twin Cummins Inc. QSM 11 diesel engines and has long-range cruising capabilities.
Veronika will undergo sea trials before being delivered to Australia where she will begin exploration cruising.
