Bering Yachts has confirmed that Veronika, the brand’s semi-custom Bering B77 explorer project, has been launched at their Turkey-based facility.
Designed in house by Bering Yachts, the steel-hulled yacht features a classic exterior coupled with modern additions including two satellite internet antennas.
This direction is also evident in the 23.99-metre vessel’s three decks, providing ample space for up to six guests and four crew members. Being a long-range voyager with an enormous volume of 170 GT, Veronika is also likely to outperform most yachts below the 24-metre mark.
The launch of Veronika was facilitated by Bering Yachts’ brand-new, 560-tonne capacity travel lift that was provided by the Antalya Free Zone marina, echoing the brand’s infrastructure additions, including new cranes and travel lifts able to move 2,000 tonnes as well as new hangars dedicated to superyacht construction and refit projects.
The announcement signals Bering Yachts’ 2021 launches in the Antalya Free Zone with a Bering 70, Bering 92 and Bering 76 expected to debut by the end of the year.
“With this 77-footer, we’re opening a new chapter of compact cruisers,” said Alexei Mikhailov, founder and Director of Bering Yachts.
“She may not be the longest yacht in the marina, but you just have to look at the specs to understand her capabilities. Her communications are just one example: Veronika has two satellite internet antennas and all the systems are doubled up so she will never be without satellite communications.”
Mikhailov concluded, “This is a yacht you can rely on.”
Veronika is planned to undergo further sea trials in the region before transferring to Australia to commence its high-latitude exploration cruising.
