From its beginnings crafting Mackinaw fishing vessels and schooners to its modern-day superyachts, Burger Boat Company has a remarkable 160-year history. It’s the second-oldest yacht builder in the United States and the fifth-oldest yacht builder worldwide. Prepare to embark on a captivating journey with us in our latest Megayacht News Radio podcast. We sit down with Ron Cleveringa, Burger’s vice president of sales and marketing, to discuss the builder’s evolution.
That evolution includes a long line of custom yachts, as well as mighty military vessels. Simultaneously, the craftsmanship that goes into its luxury yachts is attracting commercial clients. We further journey into the heart of Burger’s creative process, exploring the construction of two of its projects right now. One is a 180-foot motoryacht set for delivery in 2025. The other is a same-size spec yacht, purposely to provide owners with a shorter delivery time while still allowing abundant personalization.
