Bering Yachts says it has moved to the next stage of construction for its second B145 explorer yacht. The hull and superstructure have recently been joined, and the boat has been moved to its outfitting facility.

Designed by Bering’s in-house team of naval architects and engineers, the 44m boat is a three-deck ocean-going yacht capable of high latitude travel.

“Comfort, reliability, and capability – this is important in any exploration-type yacht, and it is exactly what we want to provide to our customers,” says Alexey Mikhailov, president of Bering Yachts. “Our growing construction capacity is following the demand of true enthusiasts and sea-lovers.”

Bering 145, in Antalya, Turkey, has a 9.7m beam. This allows space for a main deck master stateroom and for five guest suites, which are located on the lower deck.

Other features include a sauna with a spa and a diving room with a fold-down door and decompression chamber.

With a full displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the B145 is rated at 514 metric tons at full load and will have a hybrid propulsion drive (electric/diesel). Bering says this powertrain will allow for a top speed of 15 knots with a range in excess of 4,000 nautical miles at 12-knot cruising speed.

Bering 145 will be delivered in 2024, as well as hulls B125, B121, B117.

In June 2022, MIN reported that Bering opened a new shipbuilding facility in Burgas, Bulgaria. The shipyard is located on the Black Sea, and is responsible for building Bering’s smaller models.
