New Model: Bertram 64

Bertram's new 64 replaces the since 2003 produced and fifty plus models delivered 630, replacement of the legend that was the Napier designed 60.  The 64 builds and improves the good qualities of the 630, but most of all it builds more on its sportfish battle wagon features thanks to huge input of Bertram president Alton Hendon.  Think of the aft deck now being the largest in this size being 194 squared feet in area, with plenty of storage for the angler being it hobby or competition.  Improved design features are a smoother shear line, with or without center line windows.  So far there is no mention of a lower helm choice, as Bertram's other recent new models as the 540, 511 and 800.  But an enclosed bridge version will be available later on, adding three tons to the weight.  Power is from three engines choices Cats or MTU starting at 1676 till 2001hp.  Cats 1925hp engines will give a fast 40 knots wide open throttle max.
