Compact but capable: Bering Yachts introduces the new B72 explorer

The Bering 72 is a versatile explorer yacht based on a tried-and-tested platform designed for owner-friendly navigation and long family expeditions.

(Antalya, 9th March 2021) The Bering 72 is an evolution of the Bering 65 model, of which three units have been delivered and collectively sailed more than 100,000 nautical miles in all sea conditions. The steel-hulled B72 is based on the same technical platform and retains the rugged expedition-style lines, but Bering gathered feedback from the owners of the B65 and their captains in order to develop a new yacht that was bigger and better equipped with more comfort and storage space for supplies.

Although inspired by classic expedition vessels, the B72 is a thoroughly modern explorer. The bow has less overhang and the transom is close to vertical with a wide beach platform. The aluminium superstructure is purposeful and offers panoramic views through large windows.

The layout is on three deck levels. The main deck features a spacious salon, full-width galley and pilothouse on a raised level. Visually separated from the salon by steps, the well-equipped galley is a social centre on board, much as friends and family gather around the kitchen at home. There is a day head to port before entering the pilothouse protected from the elements by a windscreen of toughened 19mm-thick glass.

There are several options for the lower deck layout and guest accommodation. The standard layout has three guest cabins and a full-beam master suite forward. Optionally, the vessel can be reconfigured to a 5 or even 6-cabin layout with or without a crew cabin – the choice is completely up to the customer. 

The boat deck, with room for one large or two smaller tenders (and accompanying crane) is divided from the social area and exterior helm station. In addition to the flybridge, the open-air areas include the aft cockpit with al fresco dining and a sun lounge on the foredeck.

The ocean-going B72 has a displacement of 118 tons (260,000 lbs) with a fuel capacity of 18,200 litres (4,500 gal). Powered by twin Cummins 327-hp diesel engines she has a range of more than 5000 nm at a cruising speed of 7 knots.

A compact but very capable explorer yacht, the B72 is ideal for extended cruising in the company of friends and family with or without crew. Spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage space for voyaging off the beaten track, she is another example of the reliability, seaworthiness and quality construction that Bering Yachts is renowned for.
