Bering 65 Serge launched in 2015, this year made a record non-refueling crossing of 4,200 nautical miles from Thailand to Vladivostok in 27 days.

All the way the vessel towed a 9 meter Hysucat sea boat with a displacement of 3,500 liters including a fuel reserve. The total fuel consumption was 12 300 liters burning 2.9 liters per mile and passing 155 miles per day at a speed of 6.5 knots.

The Bering 65 is a rugged and classical looking steel yacht capable of any ocean crossing.  She is quite, strong and leaves a graceful wake underway.  Her displacement is over 235,000 pounds (106 tons) and with 4,500 gallons (17,000 liters) of fuel you can easily cruise for thousands of miles burning a combined 8 gallons (30 liters) an hour at 8  knots.
