burger boat company
Founded in 1863 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin as the H. Burger Shipyard, founder Henry Burger’s original mission was to build 20- to 30- foot Mackinaw fishing vessels. The quality and quick production of these builds earned Burger a strong reputation throughout the Great Lakes region. Over the next decade, the company expanded both their yard and the scope of their projects, undertaking refit and repair as well as new construction. Through it all, though, it remained a family business under the name Burger and Burger Shipyard, later evolving into the current Burger Boat Company evolved.
Through multiple changes of ownership and even a 26-month closure, the Burger brand has retained a high level of brand recognition and respect as one of the strongest American builders.
Burger has built a legacy of building a variety of custom yachts, in both aluminium and steel, working with world respected naval architects and designers. The Burger fleet boasts a number of individual yachts, showcasing the capabilities of this multi-talented yard.
Burger’s core values – integrity, honesty and commitment – are applied right from the beginning of the design process and long after the yacht’s delivery, ensuring an exceptional yacht. As a result, each Burger yacht is a reflection of the passion, dedication and loyalty every employee has for the yachts they create and the clients who commission them. Yachts bearing the Burger name are highly popular on both the sales and charter market.
