Time for Us Makes Progress
Thursday, September 22, 2005
With the hull and superstructure well underway on the 154 ft. (47m) Tri-deck, Time for Us, the latest progress report looks excellent. The highly respected team at Vripack of The Netherlands and the Burger Design Team have joined forces to create a distinctive yacht of exceptional design and quality. Vripack has developed the structural and mechanical engineering along with a striking interior design and Burger is working to assist, support and bring the effort to fruition.
The interior renderings by Vripack were met with overwhelming approval by the owners as well as the shipyard and are being put in motion. The timing couldn’t possibly be better with the sizable $2+ million investment that Burger recently made in high-tech, computerized joiner equipment. Easily creating complicated, artistic design elements with the new custom dual-axis CNC router, CNC support equipment, a digitizer and custom software means the possibilities are truly limitless. The raised panel Honduras mahogany interior with molded shapes and curved details throughout is destined to be nothing short of stunning.
Myrtle burl inlayed pillars are intended to depict a “Neo” Classical motif that will dress the boat with elegance and beautifully frame the concave fish tank dividing the salon and dining area. Fortunately, with over 6,500 sq. ft. (600 sq. meters) of interior space and almost 4,000 sq. ft. (375 sq. meters) of exterior space there is just enough room to house a grand piano. A full-size elevator will provide accessibility to all four levels.
The U.S. owners intend to charter TIME FOR US which will have full ABS certification and MCA compliance. As this spectacular yacht represents the largest pleasure craft built by Burger to date, one can only imagine the pride that is shared in building this project and the anticipated celebration upon her completion. Delivery is expected in October 2006, just in time for her dramatic debut at the 2006 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
