General Details

GO FOURTH is one of the last of the Hargrave influenced designs from Burger at this length.  She offers excellent volume resulting in three private staterooms aft, each with en-suite head and shower.  She also has one of the nicest open aft decks to be found on a yacht of this size.  GO FOURTH is also unique in that her owners have restored her to a condition that very possibly is better than new and yet retains the charm and functionality of a traditional custom yacht. 


GO FOURTH is a classic Burger in yacht condition.  She is stunning from all angles while at the same time her machinery and systems offer the latest technology available today.   Several years ago the yacht’s entire interior received a major refit which included all new mahogany raised panel joiner work throughout.  This included all new headliners with exposed mahogany beams overhead and all new lighting.  At the same time all of the yacht’s heads including the crew quarters and on-deck powder room were updated with new fixtures, marble vanity tops, and marble inlaid soles.  Teak and holly soles were installed in the pilothouse and galley areas and new teak decks were installed on the yacht’s aft deck.  All the above work was performed by qualified craftsmen with appropriate results for a pedigree Burger yacht. Her traditional profile together with Burger’s customary teak trim and railings makes GO FOURTH one of the most appealing designs on the waterfront.
GO FOURTH offers three double staterooms aft, each with ensuite head and shower.  There are separate crew quarters forward for three or four persons plus a separate crew lounge.  Access to the full width, stand-up engine room is from the crew quarters.  On the main deck starting forward is the formal dining salon/study, the fully updated galley, lovely main salon with traditional Honduras mahogany paneling and cabinetry, and a full width aft deck salon.  The cockpit, which was added to the vessel several years ago, is accessed from the aft deck via stairs aft to starboard.  For handling improvement the rudders were replaced with48” foil shaped, asymmetrical rudders and the yacht’s keel was extended to achieve directional stability.  The pilothouse, situated between the main salon aft and the galley forward, is raised three steps above the main deck level for excellent visibility.  Access to the flybridge is from the pilothouse via the built-in stairs to starboard.
Master Cabin
The full width master cabin is aft with walkaroundCaliforniaking sized berth with bedside cabinets to port and starboard and bulkhead mounted reading lamps.  Bureaus are built-in on each side of the bed with numerous drawers.  Large linen drawers are located beneath the bed on each side and at the foot.  Cedar lined, his and hers closets are outboard and include a safe for owner’s valuables.  The ensuite head is forward to starboard and includes a lighted vanity with large mirrors, towel bars, marble counter with under-mounted sink, marble inlaid sole, and a glass enclosed bathtub with shower.
Port and Starboard Guest Cabins
The two guest cabins are forward of the master with a companionway between and a linen locker at the end of the hall.  A laundry center is also built-in to port.  Both staterooms have cedar lined hanging closets as well as ensuite heads with showers.  The port side guest room is furnished with twin lower berths and an extraPullmanberth with custom partitions for infants.  The starboard stateroom is furnished with a queen sized berth and a fold-down single berthPullman. The décor and furnishings in all three staterooms are fresh and tastefully done.  Digital air conditioning controls enable precise control of temperature and humidity.  All three heads in the owner/guest accommodations were completely gutted and refit with new marble flooring, vanity fixtures, and marble countertops.  Lighting has been updated as well. The décor is crisp, clean, and traditional.
Crew Quarters
Crew accommodations are all the way forward, accessed from the passageway connecting the pilothouse to the galley and formal dining salon forward. There are two separate staterooms for the crew and one head. The forward cabin, to starboard, has upper and lower berths to starboard with a work station desk and storage cabinets opposite.  A refrigerator is aft to starboard and an overhead deck hatch provides access to the foredeck.  Forward from this stateroom is the watertight door access to the chain locker which shows the forward framing and shell plating to be dry and in as new condition.  Aft to port is the crew head with marble counter and sole and a walk-in shower.  Next aft is the crew lounge with a built-in TV.  Opposite to starboard is the captain’s cabin with a queen berth, closet, and abundant drawer space.
Engine Room
The engine room is accessed from the crew quarters through a watertight engine room bulkhead door.  The engine room is full width and has full standing headroom.  There has been a great deal of attention paid to the engine room and it shows.  Many updated and new systems have been installed and the entire engine room is spotlessly clean.  An aluminum workbench is located just forward of the starboard engine.   In recent years the vessel’s tanks and necessary hull plating have been rebuilt.  Dripless stuffing boxes were installed on the main engine shafts. The bilges are clean and dry and there are four independent bilge pumps in the engine room including a high capacity pump equipped with a fool proof float switch which, when activated, also activates an alarm system programmed to telephone the captain or owner.
Main Deck
The main deck was fully updated over the past 5-6 years beginning at the dining salon and working aft.  All new main deck headliners were installed with new branch wiring and insulation installed.  The majority of the lighting fixtures replaced with modern, halogen lighting while retaining the 24V DC emergency lighting.    In addition, all of the yacht’s interior woodwork was either re-finished or replaced.  Great attention to detail is evident throughout in the updating process while still retaining the vessel’s original and traditional charm.
Aft of the galley and forward of the main salon is the teak lined pilothouse.  There is excellent visibility forward and to each side with three large windows across the front.   The teak and holly sole shines beautifully underfoot.   The entire pilothouse electronics console was updated with new woodwork and sensibly mounted instrumentation. Overhead monitors include the vessel’s closed circuit television system with engine room and rear facing cameras along with battery and electrical system monitors, wind, depth, speed, and heading monitors, and one of two pilothouse VHF radios.   At the last paint job, the pilothouse windows were removed and re-sealed, and equipped with washers and new electric windshield wipers to replace the original, air operated wipers.    There is a built-in, upholstered bench seat aft to port with chart drawers and teak and holly footrests below.  A stairway to starboard provides easy access to the flybridge area.  A passageway offset to starboard opens forward to the galley and aft to the main salon area.

Forward and down a few steps from the pilothouse is the passage door into the galley to port.  Large windows on both sides of the vessel bring in plenty of natural light while there are also new lighting fixtures overhead and beneath cabinets.  The countertops are white formica and cabinet faces and hardware were recently updated, doors painted Chevy white hi-gloss Imron for a crisp yacht look.  The galley soles as with the companionway and pilothouse were updated with gloss finished teak and holly.  Forward from the galley is the formal dining salon, also with large windows port and starboard and paneled in richly finished Honduras mahogany.  Galley Appliances GE Profile Microwave GE Convection oven KitchenAid trash compactor Dacor 4 burner range with grill GE Profile 2 door refrigerator Frigidaire dishwasher Dual stainless steel sink Assorted small appliances
