… with hull number one sold and hull number two in build, Wisconsin-based Burger Boat Company’s 48 Cruiser appears to be intriguing even the traditionalists. In conceiving the 48 Cruiser, the 155-year-old yachtbuilder teamed with Dutch design firm Vripack, which patented the Slide Hull concept that is gaining traction in cruising yacht design. The result was a handsome, fast-displacement cruiser with all the grace and style of a traditional Burger yacht, but with the silky-smooth quickness and agility of a wet seal.
