The Bering 50 is a rugged steel motoryacht that embraces traditional styling cues on the exterior while offering a very contemporary and stylish interior. This practical seagoing design offers the choice of either two or three stateroom layouts below decks. With the ability to sleep up to six and travel over 3,000 nautical miles non-stop she is a full displacement trawler that can travel the world.
Like all of Bering Yachts Expedition models she has been designed from the keel up to be a superb transoceanic yacht. She is perfectly capable of being handled by a crew of two given her modest size in harbor features like bow and stern thrusters. The Bering 50 displaces almost 115,000 pounds at full load making her a much heavier boat than other recreational trawlers in this size range.
The Bering 50’s main deck begins with a swim platform aft that steps up to a raised cockpit. The deck arrangement provides full walk around access, a real convenience when performing docking or mooring duties. Her spacious foredeck is divided by her Portuguese bridge walkway which leads around and aft to port to reach her commanding flybridge.
Up top she features a full walk-around deck, Above deck, there is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the ocean views and sea breeze. On the main outside deck you can choose to lounge either aft in the semi-covered cockpit or up forward on the settee immediately forward of the pilothouse. The flybridge deck houses the upper steering station as well as a large U-shaped settee immediately forward of the helm chair which places everyone up top in one convenient location.
The aft deck of the flybridge has been left open for a powered davit crane and tender.
Stepping inside from the cockpit you will find a spacious, bright and inviting saloon that includes an L-shaped settee to starboard which easily seats four to five adults directly across from two barrel chairs to port which can be moved over to the large fixed table during meals.
Numerous reinforced glass panel windows provide abundant natural lighting and a general sense of openness throughout both the saloon and galley. Opposite the settee centered in-between the barrel chairs is a built in cabinet which is ideal for locating a large pop-up flat screen TV. When not in use it stows inside below the window level thereby maintaining an unobstructed view.
The galley shares the same space as the saloon so those preparing a meal are never isolated from the rest of the group. The large U-design provides lots of usable counter surface for meal preparation. There is no shortage of choices for how exactly you wish to design and finish your galley. The galley includes stone counter surfaces, tile backsplashes and wood flooring. All necessary appliances such as refrigeration with freezer, stove, range and microwave are included and you can add your choice of dishwasher and a trash compactor.
Her systems and machinery design benefit from the engines being mounted aft below the saloon with plenty of room to move about for inspections. She boast 1,800 gallons of diesel storage capacity in two tanks that are positioned below the waterline in order to create a lower center of gravity and much better inherent stability.
With the ability to locate the engine room either aft or amidships, you have a wide variety in how you choose to situate the lower deck staterooms. The renderings illustrate how the layouts change based on engine location. Notice the enormous master stateroom available when the engines are mounted amidships. The stern being the most stable location on the boat underway, this would be an ideal arrangement for those who prefer a less lively sleeping experience either underway or while at anchor. Since Bering Yachts is a semicustom builder, these rendering illustrate the typical arrangements available on the 50. Should you wish to further customize the interior with a variation on the original renderings, Bering can address those requirements to help you design exactly what you are looking for.
