Burger Boat Company, one of the oldest and most respected custom yacht builders in America, is pleased to announce the sale and delivery of its newest Burger 48 Cruiser, Hull 512. This Burger 48 Cruiser is a specially built 48’ (14.63 m) aluminum cruiser developed in conjunction with Vripack Naval Architects and features an interior from De Basto Designs. The yacht was christened Thursday, Aug.15 by her owner at Burger’s shipyard in Manitowoc, Wis. The owner took immediate delivery and, after a trip to Door County, Wisconsin, will cross Lake Michigan to the yacht’s new home. “We are proud to deliver this extraordinary yacht. Now her new owners can enjoy a lifetime of adventures with family and friends,” says Jim Ruffolo, president, Burger Boat Company. “A Burger 48 Cruiser is the perfect opportunity to start the yachting journey.”
The Burger 48 Cruiser is an expansion of Burger’s exceptional offerings, giving yachting enthusiasts the perfect opportunity to acquire an alternative to a production boat. An owner now has the opportunity to work with Burger to design and craft a custom cruiser to meet their own specific requirements. Requirements that incorporate the quality finishes and artistically crafted details found on all Burger custom yachts.
This yacht reflects Burger’s quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. She is powered by twin 600hp Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 engines and provides her owner with joystick control for enhanced maneuverability. The Burger 48 Cruiser incorporates Vripack’s revolutionary Slide Hull® Design. This hull design provides a cruising speed of approximately 26 knots and a top speed of approximately 31 knots in comfort. Alustar® aluminum is used to provide increased strength and corrosion resistance without adding weight. This Burger 48 Cruiser features two ensuite staterooms with elegant and modern design touches from De Basto Designs. Its open salon/galley area provides unobstructed views, and its exceptional exterior spaces are perfect for entertaining friends and family.
As part of its ownership program, Burger also offers Burger Care®. Burger Care® provides Burger owners with 24/7 shipyard support of their new yacht. From cleaning and dockage, to routine maintenance and engine overhauls, a Burger Care® representative is available to help owners obtain their Limitless adventures.
