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, new shaft tubes, completely rebuilt water tank with new baffles, plating, & potable water tank coating (you can drink the water!!!). 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 in 1986 (name of the yacht was IDYL) with Detroit Diesel 8V71TI engines and underwater exhaust were installed.

When the current owner started a multi-year restoration/re-manufacture of VICTORIAN ROSE from 2001 to 2008, the main engines had about 2000 hours shown on the engine room hour meters. Since 2008, approx. 3500 have been put on the main engines. Engine room hour meters are currently showing 5100 hours (2/17). The Captain has kept a cruising log since the boat was launched in 2008 logging actual hours for each trip and uses the engine room mechanical hour meters as a back up.  Because the Engines are run at less than half power while cruising it is difficult to predict when these engines will need a in-frame overhaul (RPM diesel estimate $40,000-$45,000). Generally yacht engines are overhauled when they start smoking where as in commercial applications smoking is tolerated) The Victorian Rose engines do not smoke and do not burn oil. It is best to have an engine surveyor employed by the buyer to make an assessment  on when the engines will require overhaul.  Documentation is available on the re-powering of Victorian Rose in 1983, and the rebuild of engines and MARINE GEARS in 2002 and dynamometer testing.

VICTORIAN ROSE is a perfect yacht for classic yachting events, day trips, long range cruising, or elegant chartering. Her remanufacture restoration surpasses that of any other Burger motor yacht and the cost exceeded three times the current asking price. This is a one of a kind opportunity to acquire a classic looking yacht with new joiner work, modern electronics, and all new plumbing, wiring, and operating systems. She has moderate draft and carries sufficient fuel for Bahamas and coastal voyages. She is in impeccable condition after a multi year restoration and is continually maintained to a high standard. VICTORIAN ROSE is offered for sale in her current configuration for the first time in 2016/2017. Almost all equipment in the engine room was new during the 2001-2008 refit. Her Main Engines (new in 1986) were removed, rebuilt and reinstalled by Detroit Diesel during 2001-2008 re-fit. They have preformed flawlessly for approximately 3500 hours S.M.O.H. Both 21kw kilo pack generators were installed during the 2001-2008 re-fit. (one was replaced in 2012)

VICTORIAN ROSE received an award for best in show at one of the Burger Rendezvous competing with newer and larger Burgers!

For extended range, the lazarette 300 gallon gray water tank could be converted to a fuel tank.
