Bertram Yachts is a legendary boat builder, and this year they’re celebrating their 50th anniversary with a Bertram-style bash – in other words, they’re throwing a big, big party. It’s being called Bertram’s Blast to the Past, and it’ll be held April 29 and 30 at the Biscayne Bay Marriott in Miami, FL.

Get ready for a party, Bertram style.

Get ready for a party, Bertram style.

Bertram owners are invited to bring their boats, as well as see the Bertrams on display in the marina (from 4:00 to 7:00). Arrangements have been made with the on-site Sea Isle Marina for dockage. The goal? On Saturday, Bertram hopes to have the world’s largest-ever Bertram gathering push through the inlet in one massive all-Bertram Bimini Start.

Tickets are $50 in advance ($75 at the door); for more information go to Bertram’s web site, where you’ll also find out how to get discounts at the Bimini Big Game Club for those who want to participate in the Shootout, as well.
