Update On Bering 70 Construction Construction on the first hull for the Bering 70 trans-oceanic yacht is going apace. Fitting out of spaces is well underway and the structure in general is more-or-less completed. Meticulous work is ongoing to prepare the yacht's surfaces for paint and other finishing materials. Bering says they are looking to launch the first Bering 70 in September. Great care has been taken in designing the bow of the Bering 70. Bering comments that a reverse-raked bow is seldom seen even in contemporary or traditional designs. The absence of a large overhanging bow reduces the reserve buoyancy that creates the lift/pitch in an approaching wave. This allows the bow to slice through the waves rather than ride up and over them. The result should be a much more comfortable ride for those onboard.
