The Burger 50 Cruiser is a couple-sized yacht with classic lines and a slippery hull bottom.

Burger worked with Vripack—using the naval architect’s patented Slide Hull design planing hull form—to create the 50 Cruiser’s running surface. Powered with twin 600 hp Volvo Penta IPS800s, the yacht has a 26-knot cruise speed and a 31-knot top-end, according to the builder.

The builder also says the hull design has 14-percent less hydrodynamic resistance when compared to a standard planing hull form. The end result should be a more fuel-efficient yacht. The design carries the beam forward, increasing real estate belowdecks.

Combine the planing hull design with Volvo Penta Interceptors, the builder says the 50 Cruiser comes onto plane without measurable bowrise. The Interceptors automatically adjust for trim and list.

The helm, forward and to starboard on the main deck, has Volvo Penta’s glass-bridge system with two 17-inch displays, a joystick for close-quarters maneuvering and dynamic positioning system.

Abaft the helm is a galley with two-burner cooktop, refrigerator/freezer and microwave/convection oven and a dishwasher. Across from the galley is a U-shaped dinette for all-weather dining. There is also an L-shaped settee with table in the cockpit for al fresco meals.

Built with marine-grade aluminum, Burger offers a lifetime warranty on the 50 Cruiser’s hull structure and a five-year warranty against blisters.

This 50-footer has classic motoryacht lines with high bulwarks and a straight sheerline from the bow to end of the house. The raked front windshield, flowing hardtop, eyebrow-shaped side windows in the superstructure and sheerline drop where the house meets the cockpit, work together to create a sporty profile.

Accommodations for the 50 Cruiser includes two staterooms and two heads. The owner’s stateroom is amidships and full beam with a queen-size berth, en suite head and sitting area. The room is kept bright via hullside windows. The forepeak VIP stateroom, also en suite, can have a queen berth or be split into two singles, and like the master, benefits from hull side windows as well as hatch overhead.
