Project: Bering 130

Bering Yachts proudly announces the 130 project a new forty meters addition to its expedition series models and flagship of the fleet.  Striking with her bold and powerful lines, she has been developed in association with Sabdes Design to be a superb transoceanic yacht, ready to take on the heaviest of seas with grace and efficiency due to a tall bow profile that provides the requisite buoyancy to rise up and over approaching swells.  Her expeditionary-styled, tri-deck profile is influenced by the tall bow as well as the Portuguese bridge and pilothouse, features that contribute to her functionality as well as to her aesthetics. The Bering 130 is every bit as capable, and with 65000 liters of fuels can travel well over 6,000 nautical miles.  Bering 130 features an extremely functional layout thanks to a nine metrs plus of beam. The huge sun deck on the flybridge offers a prime location for entertaining, partially shaded by the hardtop and hosting a wet bar, large Jacuzzi, various lounging areas compromising of lots of fitted sun pads.  Stunning upper deck sky lounge reinforces the indoor/outdoor theme with large doors opening out to the aft. The library area, captain’s quarters and pilothouse are all well laid on the upper deck. Alfresco dining for up to ten and large sun-loungers are available on the aft side of this deck.  Exterior side of the main deck incorporates the lounge area with sun pads, seating and a generous coffee table. The vast main saloon and dining area (for 10 guests) have huge full-height windows on either side giving the guests a wonderful sea view. The galley, day head and extensive storage areas are also comprised on the main deck.  The forward located full beam master suite comprises a master stateroom with a king size bed, a spacious head and extensive storage areas. Being located on the main deck provides a real convenience over the more typical placement of the master suite in the lower deck, no stairs. In addition to being far more convenient, the master suite offers maximum privacy given the fact it is completely separated from the lower staterooms.  Four luxurious and spacious staterooms comprising large queen size beds and en suite heads make up the lower deck. Fully equipped, dedicated gym and massage therapy cabins, as well as the crew quarters are also located in the lower deck.
