"MERCATOR" is the last of Burger's proud line of 64' Aluminum Cruisers built throughout the 70's. She has a flying bridge equipped with a duplicate set of steering and engine controls similar to those installed in the pilot house, VIP guest stateroom, full beam master stateroom aft with additional guest cabin forward. This cabin is suitable for crew as well as extended family or guests. The lounge, stairwell, pilothouse and aft passageway are done in specially selected Korina wood, and all exterior wood trim is varnished Teak.
She's powered by a pair of Caterpillar D3406 turbocharged / aftercooled diesel engines which cruise her around 15knots with top speed approaching 20knots.She offers a stable ride thanks to the well designed S&S hull form and twin sets of Gyro-Gale Stabilizers.
Designed by Sparkman & Stephens she is remarkably well engineered and built to the highest standards by Burger Yachts. She remains today a very capable and seaworthy classic motor yacht that presently is in full operational condition and ready to cruise near or far.
It is obvious that her current loving owners and those that came before them have taken exceptional care of "MERCATOR". She's quite unique in that she has been kept virtually original other than systems updates and improvements. The yacht truly glistens with her 2010 Awl Grip paint and "Bristol" brightwork. Don't miss this opportunity to own an elegant classic Burger, a true American classic!
