Bering Yachts said it added an office in Monaco to assist with growth in the E.U. market. It is the third satellite office the Turkish builder opened this year, after adding staff in Moscow and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The Monaco office will be headed by Bogdan Gusarev, who said buyers are increasingly looking to Bering’s long-range vessels from 65 to 145 feet.
“The explorer market is booming, and Bering’s rugged, steel-hulled platforms are gaining traction in Europe,” Gusarev said in a statement. “European clients are particularly demanding, as they are usually experienced and technically knowledgeable yachtsmen who expect high quality. We fully expect to see more European clients building with us in the near future.”
The builder also announced a contract for a 76-footer.
“The client was looking for a tough, go-anywhere explorer yacht with oceanic range, which is what Bering does best,” founder and president Alexei Mikhailov said. “But he also wants to be able to run the boat silently for extended periods on battery power alone, so the B76 will be equipped with a powerful battery bank that can be recharged by alternators and solar panels.”
