“As an American kid growing up boating, Burger Boat Company was one of the most historic names that I could ever dream of designing something for, so I’m really proud of that,” shares Evan Marshall. The well-known designer has collaborated with the Midwestern megayacht builder for the Burger 142 Atrium yacht, with a multi-deck open space never before realized on a yacht of her dimensions.
The 142-footer (43.3-meter), a first-time collaboration between the studio and the shipyard, features both styling and interior design by Marshall. As the name suggests, the centerpiece is a three-deck atrium, complemented by large panes of glass outboard for extra effect. A glass elevator or open spiral stairway with a dramatic chandelier can rise through the center of the atrium, too. Regardless of choice, it leaves quite the impression when standing on the main deck and looking up through the opening to the deck above.
Marshall and Burger will tailor the interior to your tastes, of course. But, the suggested amenities and accommodations all come from knowing what American buyers in particular want. For instance, because of the desire to feel connected to the seascapes even when inside, Marshall has designed a bar area directly adjacent to the outboard glass. Guests aboard the Burger 142 Atrium yacht can enjoy the views while seated at barstools accompanying the marble-topped bar.
Yet another feature making the Burger 142 Atrium yacht stand apart is a spa and gym. Marshall has penned a mosaic-tiled steam room as well as a traditional sauna. The area sits just inside and down a few steps from the open-air beach club, further featuring a shower for swimmers’ convenience.
Speaking of swimmers, they can leap into the water from a platform that extends, with stairs, from the transom. It’s part of what Burger and Marshall call the Infinity Deck, since there are unimpeded views from the main aft deck out to the horizon. Glass bulkheads here allow guests to be more engaged with those who are gathered on the built-in settees a few steps below, plus those boarding watertoys.
With six staterooms spread across the three decks—including an upper-deck VIP—the Burger 142 Atrium yacht is an all-aluminum build. She’s capable of construction on contract.
