Burger Boat Company has begun building its newest yacht, the Burger 50 Cruiser. Following on the success and popularity of the recently delivered Burger Cruisers, the Burger 50 Cruiser is a powerful and luxurious aluminum cruiser developed in conjunction with Vripack Naval Architects and features an exquisite interior designed by Luiz de Basto of De Basto Designs.
Henry B. Burger founded the H. Burger Shipyard in 1863 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, located on the shores of Lake Michigan. In 1938, the shipyard produced its first welded steel yacht and by 1952, the first welded aluminum yacht was produced. Since its founding, Burger Boat Company has built approximately 500 vessels. Of these, about 250 are still in service and continue to provide an excellent cruising experience for its many loyal followers.
That’s because Burger custom builds a boat with your preferences and requirements and they’re built to last a lifetime.
“This yacht is a sparkling example of Burger’s shipbuilding heritage,” says Jim Ruffolo, Burger Boat Company president and CEO. “The Burger 50 Cruiser is everything an owner is looking for in a yacht. Luxury, style, comfort, modern technology, and an heirloom to share with family and friends for a lifetime of adventures.”
The Burger 50 Cruiser incorporates high-quality finishes and many custom design opportunities, including the color of the hull! The interior will feature two staterooms, unobstructed views in the open salon and galley area, and exceptional exterior spaces for entertaining family and friends. It’s powered by twin 600hp Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 engines and incorporates Vripack’s revolutionary Slide Hull® design, which provides a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed of approximately 31 knots in comfort. She’s NMMA certified using ABYC standards, and is now available for custom orders.
