Burger’s 98’ Motoryacht “Lady Pat” by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy There have been a number of notable, even famous, Lady Pats; Our own First Lady Pat Nixon; Then a prize winning 46’ Robertson & Caine Lion in Tortola; and the 48’ Elco Lady Pat – Best Power Boat. Today, a true American Southern Belle is crowned to join them, swathed in fashion, beauty and style: She is Burger’s Raised Pilothouse 98... and she's our very own Lady Pat. Her owners, Pat and Ralph Horn, a notable Southern couple, ordered Burger’s aluminum build as their choice for the Bahamas and Caribbean waters. It was a sea-going recreational outlet they had already tasted. Two years before, they sailed aboard Wimil, a 90’ Burger Raised pilothouse, and on that fanciful voyage decided to invest in their own version of oceanic tranquility. If Lady Pat looks familiar, she should. She’s patterned after Burger’s first ACS (Advanced Construction Series) built boat, Wimil. Both of these builds feature a high freeboard hull that balances a timeless superstructure with a traditional touch. Burger has a magical way of maintaining their lineage with designs that impart a subliminal reflection on the past. Their in-house architecture is headed up by chief designer Don O'Keeffe, who's carried on the legendary designs of Owen Stevens and Jack Hargrave, both of which were responsible for many of the boats Burger produced in decades past... as well as boats that have proven to withstand the test of trend and time.
