Staying on schedule for her delivery in October of next year, hull number one of the Bering B107 megayacht has completed the steel-plating stage. The Turkey-based builder therefore undertook the process of flipping her hull so that her next big stages can start.
While she has several steps to go before her teak decking comes onboard, and the owner-specified design details fall into place, the hull gives a sense of her intention. With a volume of 276 tons, this 108-footer (33-meter) has long-range cruising in sight. In fact, she should be capable of upwards of 4,000 nautical miles while at 9 knots. The twin Cummins engine package additionally should allow a maximum speed of 12 knots.
The hull turning comes a few months after construction started. The owner of this first Bering B107 wants a family-oriented yacht, with a bit of an unusual general arrangement. Specifically, not one but two master suites are part of it. One is forward on the main deck, while the other is aft of the wheelhouse. The main-deck suite has direct access to the foredeck’s hot tub, too, for private open-air relaxation. Equally noteworthy, the upper-level owner’s suite has a private balcony. More family and/or friends get cabins, three in total, below decks.
Everyone has abundant areas to dine together, too. Four are spread throughout the Bering B107’s decks. Starting up top, one is on the flying bridge and has a handy bar. The next is forward one deck below. The last two are out on the aft main deck, and inside the main deck in the customary location. A walk-in pantry below decks in the crew area should ensure the family’s favorite meals can be prepared with ease.
A crew of six, plus the captain, will accompany the owner’s party
