Bering 55, a classically styled pilothouse and superb transoceanic motoryacht

The Bering 55 is a classically styled pilothouse motoryacht. Reminiscent of her trawler lineage, her interior embodies the best of the modern era.

She is a capable and rugged long range passagemaker and can easily travel over 3,000 nautical miles. She possesses a more traditional exterior styling with her reverse raked pilothouse windows and sweeping bow sheer while offering either a traditional teak and holly interior or a more contemporary interior design featuring exotic woods, euro-design fabrics and contemporary furniture and fixtures throughout. Like all of Bering Yacht’s models she has been designed from the keel up to be a superb transoceanic yacht.

She is perfectly capable of being handled by a crew of two given her modest size and features bow and stern thrusters as well as a full walk-around deck. She is a capable and rugged long range passagemaker and given her large quantities of fuel and water can easily travel over 3,000 nautical miles, granting access to any cruising destination you have in mind. The 55’s main deck provides full walk around access, a real convenience when performing docking or mooring duties. Stepping inside from the cockpit you enter the saloon which is adorned with rich woodwork throughout, hand finished varnish and your choice of flooring, be it wood or carpet.

The galley is located just a few steps up in the aft pilothouse. The absence of a bulkhead ensures the cook is not isolated from the action in the saloon yet provides a separate dedicated meal prep area. Your choice of professional grade appliances can be installed as well as near infinite choices of materials for counter-tops, backsplashes, and other surfaces and fixtures. A large residential refrigerator can be installed or if you prefer, multiple drawer-units of refrigeration freezers can be chosen. Bering’s design team works with each customer individually ensuring your yacht is uniquely built.

Above deck, there’s plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the ocean views and sea breeze. On the main outside deck you can choose to lounge either aft in the fully covered cockpit or up forward of the Portuguese bridge on the built in settee bench seats that offer a truly magnificent experience while underway. Up above, the flybridge deck offers more great space to relax and enjoy the sights as well as providing a second steering station. The lower aft deck of the flybridge has plenty of space to locate one or more tenders in addition to a powered davit crane to make tender launching and recovery effortless.
