    more info on the 151 and a question

    I talked to the Burger sales rep. The owner wanted to cruise the inland waterways so the mast folds down and the stacks come apart reducing the air depth to 21 feet allowing it to travel the Erie Canal.

    But, does anyone have any thoughts on why they put the secondary sterring post on the bow instead of on the flybrige?

    This is a very beautifull vessel, must put one of these on my shopping list.

    Thank you to the YF team for the review, job well done.

    It's redundant in the age of radar and hand-held comsets, but back in the day, the outside helm increased situational awareness and aided in night watch visibility. No doubt, a fly helm would expand the horizon, but Sycara was built to be true-to-time.

    Another example of an open-air, forward helm from the era, take a look at my review of Royal Huisman's 'Athena'...

    Thank you. It's encouraging to get feedback from our readers, especially when they approve. We spend an inordinate amount of time on these reviews. Most of them contain 7-10 pages of editorial and we'll publish 30-50 images. This limits us to 1 or 2 reviews a month, but hopefully quality prevails over quantity.

    In contrast, magazine reviews are generally about 1-2 pages of editorial with pictures scattered about to make the review look like 3-4 pages. I think the magnitude and excellence of today's builds deserves much more coverage than this.

    Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to say "job well done". I know our regular members appreciate the effort. They reciprocate by sharing their knowledge regularly in the forums.

    Another Perspective-Wrong Flag for US Built Boat?

    Just looking at Sycara and an elderly well dressed gentleman and wife are grumbling to each other. I say, what do you think? He say " I think it's a big piece [word deleted by author] because it's American Built and has that [deleted] on the transom. I don't care how whiz bang or excellent anything is on the vessel as I can't or won't get past the fact that is does not fly the flag I nearly died defending"
    I know this is an International community but I wanted to pass on this perspective to other Americans. After reflecting on this I have to agree and now my image of the Sycara is tarnished no matter where the second helm goes. For the record my vessels always have been US built and flagged.

    Great review and a beautiful yacht.
    One can only hope that more people would lean toward this type of retro yacht design as opposed to the somewhat generic look alikes of today.

    Veggie,

    Why exactly does the flag matter? All the European built boats dont fly the flags of the countries they were built in either. There's lots of German, Dutch, Italian, etc boats all flagged in the islands... does your opinion apply to them as well?

    Arriving via the postal service, I skim through the current YACHTS International, and find a review of the stunning Burger "Sycara IV".

    Been there, done that, got that T-shirt. (Thanks Yacht Forums!)

    The review provided on Yacht Forums was not only earlier to release, but (IMO) far more comprehensive with greater detail, images, and effort.

    Hats off again to Carl and Company for their efforts and setting the bar in standards and 'first to market' so to speak.

    The only one worthy of this forum is her wonderful bow....my camera (the first digital "Brownie") really isn't up to the quality usually featured here

    That's a lovely shot as well showing the trailboard. Even the forward flag pole has a custom cover, wow. It must be real wood then...

    Pardon the ignorance, but what is the purpose of dropping the hooks when tied to? Cleaning?

    Fabulous work on the review Carl and Chuck.

    I see this quite often not only with yachts but general ships, I guess it is to keep the bow from shifting because that does happen even though your moored. However, it is stranger when you are alongside with a yacht. If you are berthed Med/slip to style, it is easily understandable that you deploy both anchors.

    They did a demo at FLIBS dropping the ladder and extending the ramp for a video. Happened to be walking by and got a few shots.

    I had the rare and fortunate opportunity to tour her while at the show.
    Burger has raised the bar. The pictures provided by print, and those which showed up here (first) at Yacht Forums are indeed stunning, but I hate to say that they do the boat no justice.

    I was in awe through all 151 feet of her. She is even more stunning in person.

    limited edition prints

    So Carl when can we order a sepia print with triple matting for our own offices to dream about? Put me on that list. I sat and just stared at this boat today for about 20 minutes over at Pier 66. The detail is extraordinary. This is what Burger does so well. there are yachts, then there are pieces of art.
    This one will be talked about for a long time put it on the short list:
    Eco
    Pelorus
    A
    Nero
    Marco Polo (hopefully someday?!?!)
    and the first plywood boat i built as a kid.
