There’s a lot we could talk about when it comes to “Adventurer”, a 1986 86′ Burger. It’s tempting to do a deep dive on her pedigree. She was, after all, one of the last Hargrave-designed Burger Yachts ever built. Then again, the seaworthiness of her hull and the pure livability of her accommodations are also ripe topics for discussion. But those subjects will have to wait for another day…
No, today is all about her condition, an especially critical topic when it comes to a vintage yacht. Thankfully, it’s somewhere between “terrific” and “stellar”. As a matter of fact, she’s in the yard right now for a paint touchup, some exhaust work, the installation of a Wesmar bow thruster, and a full varnishing. And that’s on top of a $400,000 refit in 2016. Long story short, as soon as her current owner bought Adventurer, he went about addressing every single item that came up during survey – and some that didn’t.
And that’s how one ends up with a stunning Burger yacht that’s more-than-ready for extensive New England cruising this summer – which is precisely her owner’s game plan if Adventurer isn’t sold by then. But, given her extraordinary condition and intriguing $1.2 million asking price, we wouldn’t start booking dockage in Nantucket and Newport just yet if we were him.
