VICTORIAN ROSE, is a completely restored, renovated and improved 63' Burger.  She may be the "most restored" Burger ever.  She was peeled back to her aluminum skin and frames inside and out and she was put back together with new fairing, paint, running gear, plumbing, wiring and joinerwork to much higher quality standard than she was originally built. Her transformation included many upgrades and improvements such as: flybridge, davit, tender, galley moved up to lower saloon, properly enclosed and insulated aft saloon, new decks, new generators, new heads, new galley and new electronics.   The entire renovation was done in collaboration with the Burger re-design team who raved about the results. Cabinetry utilizes matched "book ended" exotic wood veneers guillotined from single trees. Walls and doors are Makore Burled exotic veneers all selected from a single tree.  She received an award for the "best restoration" at a recent Ocean Reef Club Vintage Weekend."

VICTORIAN ROSE, has a redesigned master stateroom with queen sized bed and ensuite head and her improved guest stateroom has a complete head with shower across the passenger way.  Both staterooms have beautiful matte mahogany joinerwork.  Up a half level is the lower saloon with a new open galley and settee, and table.  Forward and down a half level is the expanded crew quarters for four.  At the rear of the lower saloon, starboard side, is a staircase to the pilothouse which is up another half level.  The pilothouse is well equipped and has a large bench seat aft for seating. On the port side is another staircase to the flybridge which has ample seating, a second control station, bimini top, tender and a davit aft. Aft of the pilothouse is the large aft deck with 360 degree visibility, full bar, beautiful cabinet work below the windows, and comfortable furniture that can be used for formal dining.

VICTORIAN ROSE, has redesigned forward "crew quarters" and now has two cabins, one with oversized V berths and the other with upper and lower bunks.  There is also, a head with stall shower and a stacked washer and dryer.  For an owner that operates his own boat, VICTORIAN ROSE provides a total of four staterooms all finished to the same standard as the aft staterooms.  If there is only one crew, then there is a total of three staterooms for owner and guests.

VICTORIAN ROSE, has cruised the Great Lakes, East Coast and Caribbean from Maine to the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.  She has been chartered on a limited basis, sometimes to a famous couple who wanted to be pampered by three crew aboard a classic yacht.

The original Detroit Diesel 8V71N, engines were replaced around 1983 with Detroit Diesel 8V71TI engines.
When the current owner started a multi-year restoration/ re-manufacture of VICTORIAN ROSE from 2001 to 2004, the engines were removed from the boat with about 3,000 hrs and Harper Diesel did an "early" in frame both engines so all machinery would start out at 0 time. Since 2004, approximately 3500 hrs have been put on the main engines with most cruising at 1500 rpm.
