Springtime can’t come soon enough for some people in the Midwest. At Burger Boat Company, it doesn’t have anything to do with the weather, though. Spring is when Hull 510 hits the water, for a client with ambitious cruising and fishing plans.
Burger has been sharing photos of her construction on its Facebook page over the past several months. We’ve gathered some of them in the gallery below. The 103’6” megayacht features styling and interior design by De Basto Designs, marking the studio’s first collaboration with Burger. When completed, the steel-hulled yacht will have a sporty look, with a hardtop and a healthy-size cockpit.
While only a few facts are known so far, they paint the picture of an owner who’s motivated to make the most of his time on the water. Hull 510’s cockpit should fulfill the space needed to reel in big game. (For a little perspective, beam is 26’5”.) To ensure he and his guests can reach some of the farthest corners of the world, Hull 510 should see 4,000 nautical miles at 9½ knots. The twin Caterpillar diesels should also allow a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Whether on a strictly pleasure cruise or after a hard battle in the cockpit, the owner and guests will have welcoming relaxation areas aboard. A hot tub sits aft on the flying bridge, for example. The saloon contains a bar, as does the flying bridge, too. Should someone want to read up on a destination, or just curl up with a good book, Hull 510 has a library fully forward on her main deck. While you might assume that moves the master below decks, it actually sits just aft of the wheelhouse. Dining on the main deck or the flying bridge should be a real treat, too—as should cooking in the galley. It’s larger than the saloon.
