Burger Boat Company joins the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to support the WOOD FOREVER prog

Burger Boat Company Manitowoc, WI, USA, is proud to announce its membership as the first yacht builder to join the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s Wood Forever program.

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has developed the Wood Forever program to encourage yacht builders to only use timber from sustainably managed forests. Burger signed a partnership agreement and has committed to analyze its wood supply chain in order to develop a sustainable wood purchasing policy and in doing so, fight deforestation.

The Foundation hopes that other yacht builders will follow this leadership example to drive the yachting industry towards environmental excellence.

“Our presence in the Principality of Monaco and the respect we have for our environment and Prince Albert II has certainly encouraged us to promote and support the use of certified wood products on the yachts we build. We are convinced that the yachting industry must set an example through ethical and socially-responsible behaviors and we are taking action within our organization to adopt these behaviors.” Jim Ruffolo, Burger President & CEO.

Burger Boat Company designs and builds custom yachts, in aluminum and/or steel, ranging in sizes to 200' (60m). Since 1863 Burger has been recognized internationally for design, quality construction, seaworthiness, reliability and is the most respected custom yacht builder in America. Sales offices are located at Burger’s headquarters in Manitowoc, Wisconsin; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Monaco to serve clients from around the world.
