Sycara IV: Classic Fantail Cruiser

By on December 15, 2009

Sycara IV

Sycara IV is a fantastic 46-meters motoryacht from the Burger Boat Company, styled as the classic yachts of the 1920’s. The owners of the yacht, being particularly concerned about the environment, wanted her to have low fuel consumption and a small wake that would not cause damage to the water inhabitants.

Sycara IV will have the capability to cruise the inland waterways of the USA, including passage under critical bridges and shallow sections of the intracoastal, while still retaining full seagoing capabilities.

Sycara IV

Naval architect Bruce King developed Sycara IV hull lines and acclaimed yacht designer Ken Freivokh created interior and exterior designs. The exterior styling comprising of teak and white painted paneling is the perfect complement to the classy interiors. The interior consists of beautifully detailed Madrone Burl raised wall panels enhanced with inlaid Macassar Ebony and accented with Paduak molding which contrasts with fresh glossy white painted surfaces. The teak and Sycamore flooring is decorated with beautiful wool carpeting. The door surrounds and featured cabinet pieces are exquisitely adorned with polished stainless steel detailing.

The Captain’s and Crew cabins and baths continue the elegance of the Art Deco Era with white painted raised panel walls and contrasting Mahogany beams, raised panel doors and trim. Besides this the Sycara IV also has formal and informal dining areas, a spa tub, lounge seating and sun bathing options.

The helm, in contrast to the era-specific interior, is up-to-date.


The yacht was shown at the 2009 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
