Bering Yachts has launched Bering B77 explorer Veronika at the builder’s shipyard in Antalya, Turkey.
This is the first of four launches in the Antalya Free Zone planned by Bering Yachts for 2021, including the launch of a Bering 70, Bering 92 and Bering 76 in the second half of the year.
As a semi-custom project, 23.99-metre Veronika has been conceived as a long-range voyager with enough power, supplies and entertainment for a family.
Designed in-house by Bering, the steel-hulled B77 yacht boasts three decks and can accommodate six guests and up to four crew, although she can also be sailed shorthanded.
“With this 77-footer we are opening a new chapter of compact cruisers,” says Alexei Mikhailov, Bering Yachts’ founder and director: “She may not be the longest yacht in the marinas, 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 sat comms. This is a yacht you can rely on”.
Veronika will undergo local sea trials before transferring to Australia to start high-latitude exploration cruising later this year.
