INGOT BY VRIPACK
An American classic inside and out
Nothing relaxed the hard-working young businessman more than hopping aboard his little weekender with his family and venturing out across America’s lakes and rivers. As he rose through the ranks, the voyages grew longer and the family boats larger.
When his kids had become adults with careers, and had settled down in various parts of the country, he decided to approach Vripack and ask them to design a family home on water. Ingot, as all their previous yachts had been christened, was to be the private venue for the extended family’s periodical get-togethers, where to swap stories, catch up on each other’s lives, laugh, cry and bask in the warmth of familial love.
Ingot was to be built at the shipyard of the near 150-year-old Burger Boat Company in Wisconsin, a firm whose uncompromising commitment to perfection was shared by both Vripack and the new client. Burger Boat is one of the country’s oldest and most respected custom-made luxury yacht builders, and is, in addition, considered a cornerstone of the American yachting industry. Ingot was to be the largest luxury yacht they’d ever built, and the largest aluminium yacht ever built in America at that time.
