The Bering 70 is no standard motoryacht, as she was created from the keel up to be a coastal cruiser yacht, like all Bering models. A bow with a reverse rake is uncommon in both traditional and modern designs. In the lack of a wide overhanging bow, there is less reserve buoyancy available to provide lift upon impact with an approaching wave. This, in turn, causes the hull to “slice” through waves rather than ride up and over them, so reducing pitch at sea. The outcome is a more comfortable ride for all passengers.
