ENCORE V is a strongly built 1986 86' Classic Burger Motor Yacht 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 sheerline and tumblehome transom.  This hull design is also known for fuel economy with numerous range and speed options and is the hull design that one owner of the Burger Boat Company built his personal yacht around.

ENCORE V is offered for sale due to a change in owners circumstances. Encore V is the Epitomy of a Classic Burger Layout, with Walk around Side Decks and large Enclosed Aft Deck. Not put in the water this season but can be easily launched, surveyed, and brought out of the Great Lakes in 2019. Two former Captains are available! Will consider taking a smaller boat in trade. 

ENCORE V was built by a Burger owner of many years.   She is now offered for sale by her third owner.  She was a well-equipped 1986 86' Classic Burger Motor 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). 
Paint, decks, 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 than 1800 hours since overhaul. 

Davits are set up for a 17' Mako tender (not included in sale).  
Current owner installed Garmin GPS Map17's and Simrad AP28 Autopilots on the flybridge and in the pilothouse in 2015. Two new Viking 2 person self inflating life rafts were installed in 2016, Two ACR Epirb's were installed in 2017.
