Introduced in 1995, the Bertram 46 Convertible (not to be confused with the original Bertram 46 Convertible produced in 1971–87) is a top-tier sportfishing machine designed for serious tournament pursuits. Although she never achieved the popularity of her near-legendary predecessor, distinctive Bertram styling and a capable deep-V hull insured the success of the 46 Convertible in the always competitive midsize convertible market. Her two-stateroom teak (or maple) interior features a well-appointed salon with L-shaped sofa to port, teak coffee table, ice maker, entertainment center, and L-shaped dinette forward to starboard. Corian counters and under-counter refrigeration were standard in the galley. The amidships master stateroom opposite the galley boasts a tapered queen bed, storage locker, and private head with shower. Forward, the guest stateroom has upper/lower berths and private access to the day head. A three-stateroom layout with the master stateroom forward was optional. The large 120 square-foot cockpit of the Bertram 46 includes a transom fish box, in-deck fish/storage box, tackle center with livewell, and access to a compact engine room. Detroit 735hp 8V92 diesels cruise the Bertram 46 at 26–27 knots (30+ knots top).
