CHECKERS represents a unique opportunity to purchase a turn-key custom-built Burger which has benefitted from an impressive lineage of ownership. The large aft deck leads forward port and starboard with full walkaround decks, all soled in teak. The main salon features African Cherry millwork, custom-built furnishings, and oversized windows on both sides and across the aft bulkhead giving it an extremely open feel. Forward of the salon is the large galley which features updated, full-size appliances. Moving forward from here is the pilothouse offering commanding views, updated Furuno navigation and wing doors port and starboard.

Accommodations include three Owner and guest staterooms, all with ensuite heads as well as a Captain's cabin with upper and lower berths. The full-beam Owner’s suite is located amidship, accessed via a private stairway from the main salon. The guest staterooms along with the Captain's cabin are accessed via a stairway from the pilothouse.

Powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines (installed 2011) and twin 38kW generators, CHECKERS is ready to cruise with her new owners!
