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.
The awe-inspiring Bertram 64 is a powerful and sophisticated vessel that exemplifies the Bertram name in every aspect, while implementing a number of revolutionary features. From its aggressive and sleek exterior profile to its numerous technological and functional features, this sport fishing yacht is sure to become the trophy of even the most discerning fishing aficionado or yachting enthusiast.
This versatile Bertram model is available in two distinct model variations: the Open or the Enclosed fly-bridge. The layout of the Bertram 64 includes a large master stateroom, a forward queen VIP, two twin side-by-side berths, and optional crew quarters. These accommodations can also be expanded to meet the customer's unique needs and priorities. The innovative salon includes lighted rod storage, a recessing television and a built in chaise lounge into the dinette.
Below decks the Bertram 64 is fitted and adorned with elegant cherry wood in satin or gloss finish. Bertram's designers and engineers have designed the salon in order to maximize interior room with an ergonomic and comfortable layout, while yielding greater storage space. The galley is fully equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and luxurious fixtures, and is spacious enough for two people to work together comfortably, a key feature that is often overlooked in standard sport fishing yacht designs.
Bertram has also designed and incorporated a spiral staircase to the bridge for enhanced safety while navigating through rough waters, and added a more spacious cockpit to facilitate fishing or entertaining. Not to be overlooked by any angler, lockable rod storage in the cockpit, and additional overhead rod storage in the galley and bridge provide a number of key spaces for every vital fishing component. The mezzanine area of the vessel provides a dry comfortable and safe place to sit while traversing the open waters, and serves as the perfect vantage point to keep tabs on the fishing action. This area may also be retrofitted with increased storage or an extra freezer. Forward seating on the bridge of the Bertram 64 is also capacious and comfortable, and can accommodate a large family or fishing team, while providing a clear and unobstructed view of the bait spread and cockpit action below.
Bertram designed the 64 to provide the serious fishing enthusiast with increased maneuverability and a cleaner wake during both speed and troll. The 64 is equipped with CAT-32 ACERT engines, producing 1925 horsepower each and propelling the vessel to a top speed of 40 knots. Surmounting other sport fishing yachts in its class, the Bertram 64 boasts optimum power and control that enables even the most hardened angler to get from the fishing grounds to the dock as safely and comfortably as possible. The 64 also comes equipped with a Mortiz OctoPlex system that remotely controls and monitors all AC and DC power distribution throughout the boat. The innovative technology is capable of providing complete vessel status using a standard NMEA 2000 network with extensive monitoring capabilities, which extends to regulate the bilge areas, tank levels, battery and even engine and generator status among many other additions. As such, the 64's solid construction, high-performance standards, and innovative technology, lead to its heralded position as the apogee of all luxury sport fishing yachts.
