The Epitomy of a Classic Burger Layout, Enclosed Aft Deck, Side Decks, Teak Half Rounds!


"ENCORE V" is a strongly built Burger with four watertight bulkheads, double bottoms and a full keel. She is suitable for both cruising shallow draft areas like the Bahamas or transatlantic crossings. The "86" is one of Burger's most popular designs due to her flared bow, graceful shear line and tumblehome transom. This design is also known for fuel economy with numerous range and speed options and is the model that one
owner of the Burger boat company built as his personal yacht.

The engine room is accessed from the crew's quarters. ENCORE V is the only 86' Burger with an en-suite head/shower in the Captain's cabin.

The joiner work on the main deck is light colored "honey" teak of the highest quality. The pilothouse sole is teak with maple inlay.

"ENCORE V" was built by a Burger owner of many years. It is now offered for sale by the third owner.  She was a well equipped yacht when new and has been maintained (mostly by Bradford Marine) to the highest standards with many replacements and upgrades over the years in order to maintain her in top condition.  Shafts were pulled in 2002 and shaft tubes were replaced 2002 (critical Burger maintenance item). The boat was hauled and bottom was painted in  2014. 
Paint, deck and interior are in good condition.  Engines were rebuilt in 2003 at approximately 5,086 hours port 5,140 hours starboard with four new cylinder heads.  Currently less then 500 hours since overhaul. 
In 2003 "ENCORE V" underwent an extensive refit that included all new décor and many "system" improvements including: anchoring system, complete rebuild of tender with new outboard, new corner windows in pilothouse and aft deck, new port lights in cabins, new window, hatch and portlight tracks and gaskets, new Bimini top and canvas, all air handles removed and cleaned or replaced.

 In 2008 after several months in the Turks & Caicos, both A/C chillers were replaced and major maintenance was done on the stabilizers, bow thruster, and the pilothouse sliding doors were rebuilt.  All new batteries and battery boxes were installed in 2009. The boat was hauled in 2012 and stabilizer seals were replaced and fins were enlarged.

Davits are set up for a 17' Mako (not included in sale). Owner plans to install a RIB  athwartships with additional seating aft of mast.  Listing will be updated when this is complete - price will be adjusted accordingly.


Paint, deck and interior in good condition.

Broker Notes

ENCORE V is offered for sale due to a change in owners circumstances (not finance). Will consider taking a smaller boat in trade.
