NAMASTE is a 2013 delivered Expedition cruiser capable of 5,000 plus nautical miles arriving on the Gold Coast mid May 2015 and is now seriously For Sale.
The Bering 65 is a rugged and classic looking steel yacht capable of any ocean crossing. She is quite, strong and leaves a graceful wake underway. Her displacement is over 90 tonnes and with 17,000 litres of fuel you can easily cruise for thousands of miles burning a combined 36 litres an hour at 8 knots.
The saloon features built-in seating on both sides with a large dinette to starboard. An entertainment centre forward of the settees contains a large flat screen TV surrounded by hand finished teak or other woods of your choosing. Large double opening doors aft can be opened when maximum ventilation is desired or when entertaining large groups. A staircase forward leads to the lower staterooms.
The full-width galley is just aft of the pilothouse steering room but on the same level. Refrigeration units as well as in-wall oven(s) are located off to the port side along with drawer storage and an optional wine chiller. To the starboard side you have the cooking surface, trash compactor, sink, dishwasher, and dry storage. This space is bright and airy thanks in part to the open bulkhead forward as well as being above the elevation of the saloon.
The pilothouse is the command where most of the ship’s controls and displays are collected. From here you can monitor all critical systems such as tank levels, engine metrics, and battery banks. This lower helm station is perfect for steering in inclement weather conditions. Wing doors lead to both port and starboard side decks. Generous window placement on three sides provides complete forward and adjacent viewing of your surroundings. An L-settee located aft of the helm chair is perfect for hanging out with the captain while underway and offers an alternative place to lounge and read if you wish some separation from the saloon.
The engine room houses the twin diesel engines in addition to many of the ship’s machinery components. The entire engine room is surrounded with acoustic panelling and heavy bulkhead insulation. Aft of the engine room is utility/storage space, perfect for such things as fenders, a water-maker, dive compressor and tool storage.
