Burger Boat Company: Delivers SYCARA IV

Manitowoc, WI, U.S.A. – Burger Boat Company is proud to announce the delivery of SYCARA IV, a 151′-03″ (46m) Fantail Motor Yacht, to her owners.

Imagine going back to a time when people actually knew how to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of yachting. Owners of SYCARA IV, Ray and Elsie Catena, were committed to exactly that – recapturing the splendor, grace and charm of an era gone by – when SYCARA IV was designed. This was their inspiration for SYCARA IV, a beautiful traditionally styled, early 1920’s era, Fantail Cruiser.

An impressive collaboration of “high profile” experts were involved in the design and execution of this yacht, including: first and foremost, Mr. and Mrs. Catena with their extensive yachting experience and yacht building knowledge; Steve Narkawicz, their highly experienced and talented project manager; Bruce King with his classic schooner bow and fantail hull; Ken Freivokh, chosen to define her interior and exterior styling true to the early 1920’s; and Burger’s team of designers, engineers and craftspeople.

While the Catenas have cruised distant ports of the world with their previous vessels, the vision for this “family yacht” is to see America and its surrounding waters such as the Great Lakes, the Erie Barge Canal system, its mighty rivers and the Intracoastal Waterways.

SYCARA IV will make her world debut at the 2009 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Burger Boat Company designs and builds custom yachts, in aluminum and/or steel, ranging in sizes to 200′ (60m). Since 1863 Burger has been recognized internationally for design, quality construction, seaworthiness, reliability and is the most respected custom yacht builder in America.
