Burger Boat Company has begun construction of hull No. 508, a 140-foot, tri-deck motoryacht.

The yacht is being built using modular construction processes, in which each module is built to increase access to the various components while providing the ability to start outfitting each module earlier in the construction process.

Scheduled for a spring 2010 launch, hull No. 508 features accommodations for 10 and is designed to be fully accessible.

Manitowoc, Wis.-based Burger Boat builds custom yachts in aluminum and steel from 75 to 200 feet.
