Burger Boat Company in Manitowoc, Wisconsin has a long tradition of building an extensive array of custom yachts of exceptional quality. Working with many of the world’s most respected designers and naval architects, the Burger team creates individualised yachts in welded aluminum or steel.
Manitowoc and its surrounding communities is home to generations of skilled, professional shipbuilders who are highly experienced in traditional shipbuilding disciplines yet at the same time embrace innovations and new technologies. Each Burger craftsman takes great pride in the fact that they are involved in the creation of exquisite bespoke yachts that reflect the personal style of each client.
Burger’s core values – integrity, honesty and commitment – are integrated from the beginning of the design process and continue long after the yacht’s delivery. As a result, each Burger is a reflection of the passion, dedication and loyalty every employee has for the yachts they create and the clients who commission them.
Each new project starts with a client’s personal dream. The Burger design team works closely with the client to understand the vision of their new yacht. A design is then created and construction begins, incorporating the highest standards of design, quality construction, seaworthiness and reliability.
Burger’s modern full-service facility encompasses enclosed building halls, an extended deep-water seawall, large-capacity Marine Travelift® and ample space for multiple projects including new yacht construction, refit, maintenance and repair. Burger’s shipyard also features a 4,645sq m, state-of-the-art joinery facility equipped with the latest joinery equipment. The Manitowoc County Airport, located just a few miles from the shipyard, provides easy and convenient access to Burger for shipyard visits by the client.
Burger’s historic shipyard is a world renowned showpiece, where engineers, designers and craftspeople of all trades build each yacht with utmost professionalism, paying attention to every detail in a work environment that promotes lean principles and quality craftsmanship.
For more than 150 years Burger’s employees have established a tradition of offering an abundance of valuable experience and an exceptional work ethic. The deep-rooted pride, passion and enthusiasm shown by the Burger team can be seen in each and every new yacht from inception through to completion and beyond.
