Bering Yacht's 60-foot Steel TrawlerA Bigger Bering! Recreation, charter and ego-inflation are some of the pertinent reasons for owners building many yachts. However, how many of them can claim to be owners of rugged and utilitarian vessels fit to go almost anywhere while still maintaining the comfort of a luxury yacht? Trawlers may not be the fastest of the lot, nor are they the largest, but what they lack in size and speed they make up in range and practical get-it-done attitude. Indeed she is a luxury yacht under 75-feet long that allows her to berth practically anywhere without any hassle. The Bering 60-foot steel trawler is actually 63.4-feet LOA with a 20-foot beam over all. Even at full-load the Bering 60-footer’s draft comes in sub 6-feet (5.8-feet). Her ocean-going prowess comes to light with a leisurely top-speed of 10.3-knots and cruising at 8-knots. The range is astounding for such a small yacht and in this case, slow-and-easy wins the race. The Bering 60 Steel Trawler has a range just over 5,000 nautical miles drawing on only 4,600 gallons of fuel or just under 17,400 LT. To keep the Bering 60 moving there’s a 405-horsepower QSM-11 diesel engine by Cummins connected to a ZF-W325 gear box spinning a five-bladed bronze propeller.
