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.
This unrelenting sport fishing machine is the epitome of competition and performance. Sleek as a predator with a sharp bow and long waterline, the Bertram 57 Convertible appears like it is on the prowl, even at anchor. Its deep-V hull cuts smoothly through waves that would otherwise devour some of the competition alive helping the 57 to win a plethora of prestigious fishing tournaments all around the world.
With a beam of nearly 17 feet, it's cockpit measures 174 sq. ft., the most spacious in its class providing the perfect arena for a day of fierce competition. Outfitted with a standard oversized transom door, bait and tackle center with sink, saltwater and freshwater faucets, top loading freezer, circulating baitwell and cutting board and plenty lockable rod storage, the 57 is equipped with everything a fisherman needs to take pleasure in the sport.
For family-fun versatility, you can opt for a swim/dive platform and low-profile mezzanine seating, which spans the entire width of the 57, yet allows easy access to and from the cockpit. Up on the bridge, which is chock-loaded with rod storage and space for a freezer, the lounge seating forward of the console includes an optional table that affords al fresco dining complete with spectacular views.
Its aggressive exterior is quite contrary to its soothing and luxe interior. This model offers standard and optional layouts throughout and affords a spacious salon and entertainment area with an LCD HDTV home theatre surround sound system and dinette with seating for five. An oversized open galley incorporates top-drawer appliances that include either an under-counter or full-size upright refrigerator, four burner range and double sink.
Accommodations include an amidships queen master cabin and a forward VIP stateroom with queen berth, complete with private heads. The third cabin is laid out with Bertram's unique side-by side berths and nightstand; its adjoining head can also be accessed from the companionway as a day head.
