Ron Cleveringa Discusses Burger's Latest Yacht Designs
Shari Liu catches up with Ron Cleveringa, VP of Sales & Marketing for the Burger Boat Company, to discuss ethical construction and the future of one of the leading USA shipyards at the Palm Beach Boat Show.
The Burger Boat Company, based in Wisconsin, USA, has been building high-quality yachts since 1864. This revered American shipyard has built, motor yachts, sailing yachts, commercial vessels and military vessels for two major wars for over 149 years.
Now, Ron Cleveringa walks us through the latest designs to come from the yard with Seaton Yachts and Ivan Erdevicki.
“We’re always working with designers from around the world,” comments Ron. “Ivan designed a 40m raised-pilot house yacht that we’ve worked really closely with him to develop. We’ve had a really good response to that yacht which generates another look for Burger; it’s a little more contemporary than the traditional styling that many people think of.”
“The Seaton Yacht is an exploration vessel,” adds Ron. “Steel and aluminium, Ice-classed, and since it’s been released very, very well received.”
