Come next month, the first steel plates for Bering Yachts’ first custom motoryacht come together. She’s the Bering 92.
Both the yacht name and the client’s identity are confidential for now. She’s also not entirely available for preview. Bering Yachts released just the teaser aerial rendering you see above. However, it’s probably safe to say that the Bering 92 will be similar to its other long-range motoryachts and megayachts. They look just as you would expect of craft named “Bering,” being rugged, even shippy.
Furthermore, the builder isn’t disclosing details about the interior arrangement of this 92-footer (28-meter), at least not yet. It does say the overall look will be elegant. Regardless, given her displacement of 123 tons, the Bering 92 should have good interior volume. Also, given the specifications of the Bering 95, part of the builder’s Expedition Series, beam should be close to 26 feet (7.95 meters).
What Bering is revealing, though, relates to the yacht’s performance. Four thousand gallons (15,000 liters) of fuel will feed twin 410-hp Cummins QSL9 diesel engines. Together with the full-displacement hull form, this should allow a maximum speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots. Best range, 3,500 miles, should come a little lower than that cruising speed.
In the meantime, the most recent Bering Yachts megayacht delivered, Veda (left), is currently en route to the Mediterranean. A Bering 80, Veda features makore woodwork throughout, including in the four staterooms below decks. Available for sale, she will be based in Turkey through the month of August. The Cannes Yachting Festival is next on her itinerary for September.
In addition, Bering Yachts is continuing work on a Bering 70. Featuring three staterooms, one of which can double for crew, she’ll bear the name Apsara upon delivery. The name stems from that of a female celestial nymph from Hindu and Buddhist mythology.
