Used Burger Yachts

Manitowoc, WI-based Burger Boat Company is considered a premier American yacht builder. The company reportedly designs and builds 75- to 200-foot aluminum and steel mega-yachts that owners with pencil, paper—and large checkbooks—can help plan from the bottom up, according to the Travel Channel’s “Million Dollar Yachts.”

Burger Boats has come a long way from its relatively modest 1863 commercial fishing boat beginnings. The company, established by the Henry Burger family of German immigrants, builds “floating palaces” equipped to carry sailboats and power boats and boasting features such as full beam master salon and en suite marble baths with heated floors. Burger touts itself as America’s oldest custom yacht builder. It’s also one of the world’s largest, according to Showboats International magazine’s Global Order Book.

Burger has reportedly employed generations of loyal craftsmen and worked with prominent naval architects such as J.B. Hargrave and C. Raymond Hunt. The company throughout centuries has built everything from wooden schooners and steamers to all-welded steel and aluminum vessels. A 58-foot Burger-built aluminum yawl, much lighter than wooden or steel vessels, claimed the top spot in several races and set numerous records, according to the company.

Industry insiders of late have paid particular heed to the environmentally-friendly aspects of Burger Boats. Yachting magazine in 2005 named the Burger 113 with full-displacement aluminum hull and round bilges that minimize fuel consumption and maximize range one of the best superyachts of the year. A more recently introduced 151-foot classic fantail cruiser said to be designed for low fuel consumption and wakes that won’t damage the shoreline is a 2010 best displacement finalist in Boat International Media’s World Superyacht Awards. The vessel, Sycara IV, was reportedly built with what The Triton nautical newspaper calls a high-strength, highly corrosive-resistant material known as Alustar.
