Burger Boat Company Launches 43m Superyacht

Sea Owl designed and built for an experienced American yachting family and is the result of the collaboration between the Builders Design Team at Burger Boats, Vripack Engineering and Andrew Winch Designs.  The 43.3 metre yacht has been launched at Manitowoc, Wisconsin in the USA.
She features a nautical and traditional interior personalised to her owner’s taste and requirements.  Multiple varieties of teak have been used throughout the vessel to create her traditional wall panelling, flooring and furniture.  Additionally, various hand carved wildlife motifs surround doorways throughout the vessel creating a sense of the owner’s appreciation for nature.
Her distinctive green hull and off white superstructure make her highly recognisable. Exterior spaces provide alfresco dining on two separate decks with custom designed round tables.  A hot tub and outdoor wicker sun lounges provided with their own individual sun canopies, built-in seating and sun pads create inviting spaces for relaxing on the upper deck along with several areas of for lounging, reading or watching movies.
The Main Deck Salon, Dining Room and Sky Lounge flow from one area to the other by way of a curved staircase fitted with a handrail covered in woven leather and brushed nickel fittings all crowned by a skylight which allows sunlight to reflect on the centre spaces of the vessel. The texture of the leather provides contrast to the satin finish of the Teak wall panels in these areas. The stairway ends with an etched glass balustrade at the top of the stairs.
The Master Stateroom Suite is located forward on the Main Deck and opens off a circular foyer into a private office area, then into the stateroom, en suite bath with skylight above and large walk-in his and her closets. The room is finished in teak recessed wall panelling, distressed teak flooring and custom area rugs designed especially for this space.
The lower accommodations include four large guest staterooms, each with walls of Honey Teak recessed wall panelling and featuring over sized port lights, which allow for expansive views as well as letting the sunlight fill the rooms. Each stateroom has an en suite bath, which has been individualised through the colour of the exotic stone materials selected. The floors have been accented with custom borders of intricately inlaid patterns of contrasting stone.
The spacious crew accommodations are accented in the same naturally finished Honey Teak used throughout the lower deck of the vessel. The area includes a large lounge area and separate laundry facilities. Each of the four double crew staterooms include an en suite bath. A Captain’s stateroom, finished in Teak, is situated aft of the wheelhouse and also includes an en suite bath.
This full-displacement yacht has been configured with a transom garage for the tender and water toys freeing up deck space for other leisure activities.  She is powered by Caterpillar engines rated for maximum continuous operation and equipped with zero-speed stabilization to help ensure an enjoyable yachting experience during extended cruises underway and at anchor. Desalination, fuel oil purification, waste treatment, and oil water separation systems allow the vessel to operate independently and responsibly.  Mechanical and electrical systems provide for comfort and safety throughout the vessel.  A fog-mist sprinkler system and the high level of redundancy in mechanical equipment provide peace of mind for world travelling.
