Burger Boat Company launched SYCARA IV, a 151 ft Fantail Motor Yacht. SYCARA IV, a classically-styled custom Fantail Motor Yacht, was launched on June 20 in front of a crowd of well wishers. Her owner, family and friends watched as SYCARA IV was gently lowered into the Manitowoc River by Burger’s 500mt Marine Travelift shortly after she was christened by Elsie Catena. Styled after the classic yachts of the 1920’s, SYCARA IV brings together the design talents of Naval Architect Bruce King who developed her hull lines and Yacht Designer Ken Freivokh who worked with the owner and the Burger Design Team to develop the layout and incorporate the intricate, period-appropriate, interior and exterior details that were then fabricated by Burger’s craftspeople. After her final fit-out and sea trials SYCARA IV will travel east through the Great Lakes and then south where she is sure to be the hit of the 2009 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
