Bering Yachts is happy to call Bulgaria its new shipbuilding home. We are opening a second shipyard, in the city of a great shipbuilding tradition – Burgas, Bulgaria. This country, full of sun and opportunities, cannot be imagined without the Black Sea. Great location on the crossroads of many naval interests and marine passages, rich history and seagoing traditions, wonderful political and economic climate, hardworking people – all this makes the choice of Bulgaria a reasonable one.

Bulgaria has several locations that could be considered a good fit for Bering; however, none is better than Burgas. Together with the free spirit of sea exploring, Bering Yachts stand for family values and historical connections. Many great ships were built here. Many people – fishermen, marines, seamen have found their love for the sea and have built a great naval tradition in this city. Coming to Burgas to build yachts feels like coming back home, where everyone knows who you are and can see the value and embrace the compassion of what our devotion to yachts is all about. It is an honor to be a part of this region industry, and we will make everything possible to contribute to the future of this city.

The shipyard also produces the Bering 180, a 55m (180ft) expedition yacht.
