Hull number one of the recently debuted Bering 70 is officially afloat and undergoing preliminary sea trials according to a company press release.
Designed as a coastal cruiser with long-range abilities, the B70 features a relatively shallow draft (4' 6") coupled with a reported range of 2,500 miles at a cruising speed of 8 knots.
In typical Bering fashion, the B70 features a steel hull married to a composite superstructure. A single-level pilothouse and slightly reverse-raked bow give off a strong eau de patrol boat tightly wrapped in a fashionable gun-metal grey.
Though Bering plans to offer semi-custom variations, hull number one features a three en-suite staterooms plus an additional quarters for crew.
Delivery is expected late this year. For more information on layouts, pricing, and additional photos, visit Bering's website here.
