It has been the recent concern shown towards environment by the yacht’s owner, that Sycara IV, a classically-styled custom 151’ (46m) Fantail Motor Yacht, underwent an extensive sea trial on Lake Michigan where all its systems were thoroughly tested.

The yacht owner wanted to give an extra stress on fuel consumption and carbon emission and therefore the sea trials were made. Moreover, the owner not only wanted this yacht to have low fuel consumption but also a small wake that would not cause any kind of damage to the shoreline. The results of the sea trials confirmed that the yacht could cruise effortlessly at 12 ½ knots with a very small wake, while burning only 27 gallons per hour, which includes generators’ fuel consumption.

Sycara IV, is a perfect example of Burger’s continued commitment to designing and building custom yachts, that not only meets the owner’s specific requirements but also obey all the fuel emission regulations. The design of the yacht has been inspired from the classic yachts of the 1920’s. Moreover, the yacht perfectly blends together the design talents of Naval Architect Bruce King, who was responsible for his hull lines and acclaimed Yacht Designer Ken Freivokh, who worked with the owner and led the Burger Design Team to develop the interior and exterior designs.

The team had been particularly briefed on the intricate, period-appropriate details that the owner wanted in the yacht. Moreover, Burger’s skilled craftspeople have made their best efforts to recapture the splendor, grace and romance of the golden years of yachting.

Sycara IV will travel to her owner’s home port and after that would feature in the 2009 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
