63' Burger 63' Flybridge
*** Totally refitted for almost 1 million Euro in 2012 to 2013. Replacement of engines, generators, electric and water installation, navigation electronics, etc. ***
A classic American aluminium motor yacht is being offered, created by the legendary yacht designer Sparkman & Stephens (sparkmanstephens.com), and built by BURGER BOAT COMPANY, one of the oldest and best known manufacturers in the U.S. (see burgerboat.com) who, in the early sixties, have specialised in the design and construction of luxury aluminium yachts.
After many years in the U.S., this yacht was acquired by a film production company and shipped to Europe in 2012. From Hamburg, she reached, after many stop-overs, her final berth in the Adriatic Sea.
The new owner purchased this truly unique motor yacht with the intention to document her refurbishment and the transfer to Europe as a main element of an eleven-part TV-series in Austria involving three long time friends, driving the yacht and living on her.
First, the out-of-date technique and motorisation were completely removed and the BURGER yacht was refitted comprehensively during the years 2012 to 2013 in the U.S., Germany and Austria. On this occasion, the engines with the drives and thrusters, the generators, the complete electrical equipment, the water installations, the safety equipment as well as the entire navigation electronics were renewed. Beyond this, the interior has also been extensively revamped and the deck equipment has been renovated and renewed in parts or completed.
In total, the cost of this refit in 2012 to 2013 came to almost 1 million Euro. All expenditures are documented and can be proven by invoice. The same applies to all further maintenance work and investments to the present day.
The interiors, the appearance and the deck equipment are left original, as far as possible, for reasons of authenticity and to avoid any conflict with the actors’ characters and the contents of the TV series.
Paintings of the Austrian artist Christian Ludwig Attersee on the side walls of the upper salon and the ceiling of the lower salon are intended as such and a special feature. This sophisticated style is further emphasised by a specially woven carpet in the lower salon which is a mirror image of the ceiling.
Each new owner will dispose of a technically high-quality up-to-date yacht and furthermore has the option to realise individual requests in defining the interior. Worldwide, there is no comparable BURGER yacht of this size with such an investment for new motorisation and technical infrastructure.
This classical motor yacht can carry easily 2 couples with crew or a big family. Due to the advanced technology and appropriate engines for professional appliances, the consumption is very low.
However, there is still a special spirit roaming in this yacht. Finally, this yacht offers an ideal possibility – for buyers from the U.S. as well – to explore the Mediterranean Sea with a symbol of American history. Apart from that, the shipping to anywhere in the world is an easy and cost-effective alternative.
