Burger, Sparkman & Stephens team up on motorsailers
Posted on 29 October 2008
Burger Boat Company and Sparkman & Stephens are joining forces to design and build custom aluminum motorsailers.
These vessels will continue what was started with the first Sparkman & Stephens
-designed aluminum yawl built by Burger in 1957.Burger’s
worldwide fleet is composed entirely of unique yachts — built one of a kind, one at a time. The company delivers a limited number of new yachts per year.
Today, Sparkman & Stephens has developed three new motorsailers from 90- to 150 feet especially for Burger. The hulls and superstructures will be fabricated in Alustar aluminum.
Sparkman & Stephens designers have incorporated recent advances in computer modeling, rig design and material science into each of these new boats. As a result, fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly systems were specified from the earliest design stages.
Burger Boat, based in Manitowoc, Wis., designs and builds custom motoryachts to 200 feet in aluminum and/or steel.
