New Model: Bertram 800

On 27th March the two years plus of waiting since the project was announced where over as Bertram finally launched its new 800 flagship model. Bertram's new 800 is not just the current biggest model, but takes title as the all time flagship from the builder who delivered the first deep vee hull designed by Ray Hunt to the world in 1960. The 800 does in fact go eight feet bigger to the late eighties Bertram 72 delivered in only five examples. Designed by Italian Zuccon, designer for all Bertram's since 1999, the 800 has a family feeling to the rest of the range although all the other sisters do indeed look smaller. The 800 is also presented with a full wrap around windshield, but so far no lower helm station is shown in the plans. It also looks so far to be available only with enclosed bridge. Accommodation plan in the 800 offers a four cabins all en-suite layout, which features a full beam mid-ship located master stateroom. Here you also get to choose between staterooms A and B plans, with a choice of a VIP suite or a three bunks berth to fore. The 800 also features two crew cabins with one located on below to midships aft, and the other on the main deck to fore of the galley. Power for the 800 is from twin MTU 2000hp standard, or optional 2400hp.
