When an experienced boating couple first approached Burger Boat Company to discuss plans for a new yacht, they knew exactly what they wanted: a unique vessel that would not only stand out in any marina or anchorage, but also incorporate features and ideas they had accumulated over many years of yachting.
The result of that collaboration is TÒ-KALÒN, a contemporary-styled enclosed bridge motor yacht. The Burger Design Team joined forces with Cor D. Rover Design and Donald L. Blount & Associates to develop a vessel that is both elegant and technologically advanced.
One of the owner’s top priorities was a “need-for-speed” without sacrificing world-class yacht quality. The unique hull design that was developed provides the necessary lift to achieve higher speeds while ensuring comfortable sea-keeping qualities. Use of lightweight materials and carefully calculated design and engineering parameters combined to produce a top speed of 27.8 knots.
TÒ-KALÒN’s interior revolves around Sapele paneling with accents of Sapele Pomele, which flows throughout the main deck salon and guest accommodations. Guests enter the main salon through electric sliding doors aft. This space features a custom bar and a forward dining area, combined to
provide a multifunctional area to ensure quality time with friends and family.
TÒ-KALÒN’s dining area is easily serviced by the galley, located forward of the dining area on the main deck. Next to the galley is the laundry area, which provides access to crew accommodations. The owner’s stateroom is located on the lower deck and contains two separate heads with a shared shower. Forward of the owner’s stateroom are two additional guest cabins with ensuite heads.
A focal point of TÒ-KALÒN’s interior is the centrally located open spiral staircase, crafted from select Sapele veneers and hardwoods and accented by a custom brass balustrade. Suspended in front of three large, full length windows and ascends from the owner’s accommodations up to the sky lounge and pilothouse.
Exquisitely paneled in Kaya wood with Ebony inlays, the sky lounge features a comfortable seating area, a spacious desk with bookshelves, flat screen TV and a domed ceiling painted by a New York artist. The aft bridge deck is a relaxing retreat complete with lounge seating, hot tub and sun pads.
The all aluminum TÒ-KALÒN is powered by a pair of 2,400-hp MTU marine engines and is fully ABS certified. TÒ-KALÒN has several additional unique features including a comprehensive ship’s monitoring and information system integrated with the entire vessel’s electrical power system.
