Manufacturer Info



If you’re a boater or a yachtsman, you have surely heard the name Bertram—one of the few in the industry which can truly claim to be legendary. Bertram Yachts were made famous by pioneering the use of the deep-V hull design, which is still in use today. But Bertrams have come a long way since their beginning, over 50 years ago. More lately, Bertram design influences includes Ferretti and Zuccon International, which resulted in interiors that push the bounds of luxury and opulence. Bertrams also feature the latest in technology, like gyroscopic anti-roll systems, exemplary communications and entertainment systems, and advanced window designs.
