Victory is a milestone Burger in the 150+ history of Burger Boat Company. It was the first yacht built by innovative new owners Jim Ruffolo and David Ross after the previous owner Tacoma Boat Building ran Burger into the ground. Victory was the new company's first order, built for an experienced yachtsmen, who built prior custom yachts and went on to build a larger Burger after he sold Victory. Victory is a timeless design which combines three desirable features: Speed, Range, and Shallow Draft.
The 91' continues the designs of Don O'keefe with the latest refinements in exhaust, generator sound proofing, and propeller tunnels, large windows and a country kitchen. Victory has had several owners who have loved the boat. She is currently offered for sale after repowering with C-18 ACERT Caterpillar engines (installed 2017 and under warranty until 2022). Extended warranty can be purchased. She is an outstanding offering in the 90'-100' range.
In addition to new engines recent improvements also include:
A variety of photos old and new are shown. A hard top was added to the flybridge at some point. Victory could probably be converted to a folding arch/hard top to lower air draft.
