The name of Burger Boat Co.’s new 142 Atrium says it all really: The superyacht spans—you guessed it—142 feet and features an extraordinary atrium. That doesn’t mean the vessel is at all boring or predictable, though.
The U.S. yard worked with top British designer Evan K. Marshall on both the interior and exterior. The brief was to establish a one-of-a-kind focal point at the center of the yacht. As such, Marshall and his team created a grand, multi-story entrance that has never been seen on a yacht of this size, according to Burger.
The atrium, which looks as lavish as the foyer of a five-star hotel, sets the tone for the rest of the interior. The lower deck offers accommodation for up to 12 guests, with a full-beam owner’s suite and five guest staterooms. Burger says all rooms come with en suites, ocean views, and an abundance of natural light.
Another highlight is what the team calls the “Infinity Deck.” The open platform is essentially a fresh take on a beach club that aims to better connect guests with the surrounding sea by adding steps directly into the water. It flows onto an interior spa and gym. Up top, meanwhile, seafarers can enjoy a sky lounge, a Jacuzzi, and plenty of plush seating.
As to be expected, owners can personalize their 142 Atrium, working closely with Burger and Marshall to create a yacht that matches their exact requirements.
“This yacht embodies the best of design and craftsmanship, and I’m thrilled to see our vision come to life,” Marshall said in a statement.
The newcomer is also equipped with the latest technology to ensure a smooth and efficient cruising experience. (You can contact the yard to find out the propulsion options.) Burger has plenty of engineering experience, too, ranking as the oldest and perhaps most respected custom yacht maker in the states. The brand was launched in 1863, and then later reborn in the 1990s. The high-tech shipyard in Wisconsin, which now comprises seven large building halls, has delivered 40 new yachts in the past 30-odd years. The latest design has clearly capitalized on the team’s know-how.
“The Burger 142 Atrium Motor Yacht sets new standards in the industry, and we look forward to delivering an exceptional experience to our clients,” adds the yard’s president and CEO Jim Ruffolo.
We’re looking forward to the delivery of the first 142 Atrium, too.
