Bertram Yachts

Bertram Yachts has a strong heritage dating back to the year of 1960 when founder Dick Bertram, a yacht broker, bluewater sailing yacht racer and powerboat racer built the first Bertram, the 31 foot Glass Moppie. That 31 was a yacht that was ahead of its time in design and power and from then on Bertram launched their incredible line of performance and sportfishing boats ranging up to 80 feet. The company and its legend grew, thanks to many noteworthy models, including the Bertram 28, 46, and 54, and they all made their mark on the fishing world.
