The Bering 130' was always going to be the natural follow on model from the Bering 115' that SABDES Design developed for Bering Yachts in early 2016. By half way through the year Bering were in close contact working with a client wanting a larger version, so SABDES worked in close collaboration with the Naval Architects at Bering on this larger design.
We decided on softening the 130's look compared to the more military sharp styled 115 footer, by rounding all her Superstructure corners and go for a more 'yacht style' look, yet owing to her high freeboard she still retains the same very muscular presence of the 115'.
Even though she's 130 ft overall, she's a big volume boat and so her vast interior spaces will probably make her feel more like a 150 footer. She's big enough to give the owners their private living space away from guests.
SABDES Design are aiming to create a similar family look throughout the entire new Bering yachts range they have been working on; Aiming for 'rugged yet modern appearance', there's also a 77ft and a new 95ft design which share this similar styling and deck arrangements as the 115' and 130'.
Scott explains that Explorer Yachts are quite dear to his heart, 'I love the vessel size that allows very low crew numbers to manage them, yet still have no holds barred, go-anywhere capability... and if I can make them also look pretty tied up at the marina then that's all the better! Bering are a great team to work with and really know how to build great boats'
