IOO (In our opinion) she's the perfect boat for coastal SoCal cruising.
No argument from me, Walt.

Of course my current boat is my dream boat,that's what I tell my wife anyway.
Actually the things i really like about the Cheoy Lee 66 are,in no particular order;
Walk in engine room with a workbench,decent pilothouse with a settee,proper dining table,twin engines,twin genny's, a big round bum,nice deep forefoot,stabilisers,instant starting on my Detroits.
What i don't like is a smaller list;too much external woodwork(I'm lazy)
old steel fuel tanks,window leaks and condensation stains on my interior woodwork,no stern platform.
As usual it's a work in progress,but that's the fun part.

She does have an excellent bum.

There were three of them cruising the area in 2014. They seemed to be in and out of the Discovery Harbour Marina here in Campbell River a fair bit over the summer.

Nice boats, although they can be difficult to see on the water in a number of different lighting conditions.

If money were no object, I'd have a Burger 144 Tri-Deck Motor Yacht. That would be the home away from home, and a nice 30 ft dingy to get around in, and a helicopter to go home with.


I used to have some money, but over the last 10 years I spend a lot of dollars on nice boats and wild women. The rest I wasted.

I would love to see Burger actually build a yacht again, especially one of their new designs that they've never built.

I have it already, NORDIC TUG 37! With each passing day it seems better. Fits perfectly in the The UNIQUE archipelago, and the whole of the Baltic Sea area and gives me a chance to go to the European channels always the Mediterranean Sea, a wonderful dream ...


If you are interested in to see what is the archipelago sea, see this link. We dont have tide in baltic sea, we can doging islands...

I thought they were doing fine. They don't build a lot of them, but they are still doing ok as far as I know. Am I missing something?

Burger has been several years since building a recreational boat. They do say on their web site they now have one under construction. To my knowledge their most recent delivery was Lady Gayle Marie in 2011. They delivered several boats in 2008 and 2009.

They have been doing rebuilds and they've been doing a lot of commercial work including boats for tours and cruises on the Great Lakes.

They have the designs of some very updated boats ready to build at any time. Most people buying in their size range though have either gone to composite instead of metal or, on the other end of the spectrum, are going to builders like Feadship.

I would love to see some yachts built by Burger. We chartered one in 2013 and while we couldn't have been happy with it's lack of speed (12 knots cruise, 14 max), the workmanship was incredible. The boat was nice in every way. It was built in 2003 and just gorgeous. Would not hesitate to cross any ocean in that boat.

BandB,

Thx for the update. Wasn't sure what they've been doing for awhile. A friend of mine is higher up in their organization and I'll contact him to see what up just for grins, but been several years since we've been in touch.

They do make nice boats.

I don't blame you! I'd be happy with that, too!

Totally agree. Even though it wasn't my boat, I crewed on a 76-foot Alden to St Georges several years ago. (Actually the owner of the boat used to own the company.) Wonderful voyage, wonderful destination. Something about reaching a dot on the charts in the middle of a wide ocean that is profoundly satisfying.
