Namaste was launched in 2013 and has voyaged 8,000 nautical miles from Hong Kong to Brisbane via Subic Bay, Philippines; Singapore; Phuket, Thailand; Bali, Indonesia; Timor; and Darwin. Her range is 5,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 7 knots.
Ensign Ship Brokers, distributor of the Bering brand in Australia and New Zealand, played a key role at the show by introducing the company to the market. Most of the visitors were Australian expedition yacht enthusiasts.
“The 2015 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show was a definite success for us,” said Alexei Mikhailov, Bering Yachts president. “It was our first time exhibiting in Australia. We were very pleased with the visitor traffic and the quality of the customers at this show and are already looking forward to being involved in other Australian shows.”
With three new models coming to the market — B70, B77 and B80 — customers were keen to learn of the expansion of Bering into the American and Australasian expedition yacht market.
