Burger Boat Company Launches a 48-Footer

Publish date:

Burger Boat Company, the Wisconsin builder of custom yachts, has been around since 1863, and has built yachts up to 260 feet LOA, so a 48-footer stands out.

The Burger 48 Cruiser was developed in conjunction with Vripack Naval Architects of the Netherlands and features an interior from De Basto Designs of Miami, Florida. She is powered by twin 600-hp Volvo Penta D8 IPS800s that give the 48 a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed of 31 knots. She is built of aluminum, features two ensuite staterooms and an open salon and galley area.

The second 48-footer was christened on August 15 at Burger’s shipyard in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and immediately departed for Door County, Wisconsin, followed by a crossing of Lake Michigan to the yacht’s new home.

The first Burger 48 Cruiser launched in 2018.
