Berkstresser 60

Berkstresser 60

Recent price reduction! The boat has just been Awlgripped and the bottom painted.

This is a very high performance yacht built in nidacore and epoxy. It offers very high bridgedeck clearance and substantial power under sail. I sea trialed it recently in moderate conditions. We easily sailed at windspeed on a 12-15 kts close reach.

As this cat was built in the US and is US registered, it can be considered for day charter use in US waters. We are confident that it could be easily certified and converted to a day charter yacht. The cockpit is huge and a very large aft platform provides space for comfortable sun lounging, diving activities or simply hoisting a large 15-20 foot dinghy.
