Designer: J.B. Hargrave


Typical of Burgers, ADVENTURER has had just three owners since she was launched in1985. Retaining her original name, ADVENTURER is a large volume, classic design from the offices of JB Hargrave in Palm Beach, FL. In 1998, one of the naval architects from the Hargrave office was retained to re-design the aft deck with a more modern Euro stern. In the process the aft deck was enlarged and a fourth stateroom added. Easier access to the swim platform was facilitated by building in and integral stairway from the aft deck. The overall profile as a result is both modern and classic Her welded aluminum construction with longitudinal and athwartship framing, utilizing five watertight bulkheads, a fine entry rising to a flared bow, and integral spray rails, yield a soft, dry ride even in turbulent sea conditions. A lovely teak interior throughout maintains the warm tradition of yachting at its finest. The vessel has 7 headroom throughout.

The aft extension was added in 1998 by Ocean Alloy, utilizing plans drawn by Kevin Calhoun formerly of J. B. Hargrave Architects. The lines were followed beautifully and the result not only looks terrific but the addition has also enhanced the performance of the yacht in terms of speed and handling.



ADVENTURER can sleep 8 in four double cabins each with luxuriously appointed, ensuite heads. There are separate crew quarters forward for three or four persons plus a private crew lounge with additional refrigeration and storage. Access to the full width, stand-up engine room is from the crew quarters. On the main deck, starting forward is the spacious galley, U-shaped, and recently updated in 2015/16 with new appliances and flooring. Next aft is the formal dining salon with ample seating for eight. Moving further aft a starboard side companionway with teak and holly sole continues past the steps up to the pilothouse to a full width bridge deck with access to port and starboard egress doors to the exterior side decks. To starboard from the bridge deck is the main deck powder room while to port is a hanging locker. Next aft a center line passage door opens to the extremely spacious and elegantly furnished main salon with wet bar, hidden tv, new couch with storage underneath. Still further aft is the open aft with built-in seating and pedestal table for al fresco dining. Access to the flybridge is by built-in teak stairs from the midship raised pilothouse.

Walk Through

ADVENTURERs layout spans three deck levels, with the lower level devoted to owner and guest staterooms as follows:


On the starboard side of the main salon, a teak lined stairway leads down to a foyer with two Guest Staterooms forward and the Master Stateroom aft. Forward to port is the VIP stateroom with a walkaround queen berth and ensuite head with shower forward. To starboard is a second guest stateroom with twin lower berths, also with an ensuite head and shower forward. Each of the guest staterooms has individual zone air conditioning, opening portlights,

The Adventurer

The Adventurer was purchased by its 3rd owner in 2014 and has truly been treated with an "open checkbook" as she has cruised from her home port in Texas through the Caribbean and is currently in the Dominican Republic.  Extensive refitting and additions makes her as modern as her old bones will allow. She maybe the perfect Bahamas boat and never ceases to turn heads when tied up at the dock.

A few of the upgrades:

Hull side paint, all soft goods, HVAC system, all HEADS , new appliances, modern AV system, all new Garmin and Furuno electronics, KVH V7&HD7, Flir, new couches, beds, new tables, paint, wall paper, carpet, furniture, davit rebuilt, new exhaust, windless rebuilt, bimini top, dive compressor with storage tanks, eskimo ice maker, custom cradles for 2 seadoo sparks and 19' prestige tender w/ front beaching ramp.

Last Haul out August 2018. Last Survey April 2019.

New CAT Generator April 2019.


Cruising at an easy 12knots the Adventurer burns less than 40gph and with 4000 gallons of fuel has a comfortable 1000 mile range.

Climbing aboard you will find a classic Burger Motor Yacht updated with class and well cared for. The Adventurer is not a project, with provisions and crew she's ready to cruise. The extension of the hull in 1995 added a great aft deck area and swim platform. Additionally the extension provided a 4th stateroom for more guests or crew.

The current Captain and crew are available for a transition period paid for by the seller or potential long term employment.
