Featuring exclusive ARG (Anti-rolling Gyro) technology, which suppresses rolling motion and reduces rolling angle by up to 50 percent, the 700 is a warrior in all types of weather conditions. The deep-V hull, which set the standard for offshore excellence more than 40 years ago, coupled with the modification of the hull strakes to reduce impact at the bow of the boat, combine for a smoother ride and increased performance. With optional power, the Bertram 700 cruises at 35 knots. Its solid fiberglass hull bottom, high-density foam construction and twin water-cooled diesel engines make this yacht capable of blasting through the tallest of seas with extreme confidence and comfort.
The 700 has a broad beam, which carries all the way back to the stern providing an exceptionally spacious salon and, at 270 square feet, a cockpit even larger than those on many larger yachts. This generous cockpit is adorned with mezzanine seating containing multiple freezers and storage lockers. Deck surfaces are coated in non-stick Awlgrip®, molded transom steps and a molded spiral staircase to the flybridge make getting about simple and safe, even in the fiercest of oceans.
Frameless port, starboard and aft windows offer panoramic views from within the new salon layout giving the yacht's profile a streamlined look. The salon is filled with hand-selected exotic African mahogany cabinetry, granite countertops and carpeting with acoustic padding, which silences the room and sets the stage for quiet nights on board. All seating has an unobstructed view of the 42-inch LCD HDTV with Bose® home theater surround sound. An optional wet bar showcases a refreshed, modern look and the dinette comfortably seats five guests. With the goal of maximizing space without compromising luxury or comfort, the sofa (with optional recliner) features storage compartments that are incorporated into the arms of the sofa. Preparing casual or gourmet fare is a pleasure in the roomy galley, which is equipped with a standard upright or optional under counter refrigeration system, microwave/convection oven, four-burner cook-top with full oven, dishwasher and a trash compactor.
The 700's full-beam master cabin is highlighted by oblong porthole windows on either side of the king berth providing breathtaking views of the surrounding water. From the moment you enter the master, the entire cabin lights up as natural sunlight beams through the windows. These innovative windows are the product of Advanced Yacht Technologies and are comprised of layered one-inch and half-inch tempered glass seamlessly integrated into the hull in a rigid fiberglass casing that actually adds strengthens the hull. Along with the cedar hanging locker and under-bed drawers, storage options include port and starboard dressers or one dresser and a desk/vanity desk. The master head includes an expansive shower stall, teak flooring and dual his-and-her sinks.
The VIP forward stateroom offers a queen berth, while the starboard guestroom boasts large twin side-by-side berths. Both have a cedar hanging locker, nightstand with drawer, upper hull-side storage cabinets and private access to their respective heads. All staterooms come equipped with LCD HDTVs, digital alarm clocks and wall-to-wall carpeting.
